Now that the kids are back to school and we settle into autumn, I find it’s the perfect time of year try something new. With this in mind, I’m delighted to launch the Autumn Schedule of Photography Classes Northern Ireland with my business, The Photo Academy NI.
Along with my ever popular Introduction to Photography for Beginners, I’ve added 3 new courses to the autumn schedule. Introduction to Lightroom, Introduction to Photoshop and Mastering Photography (more advanced skills – not for beginners). Being able to share my knowledge with clients make me so happy and fulfilled. I always say what you give out, you get back and that’s always the case as I too learn from my students. When you are open to sharing your knowledge, you receive back new thoughts and ideas.
These classes can be provided as 1-2-1 with individuals (week days only) or in the group classes – full details below of dates and prices.
