What to Expect

Spend the day in and out of our beautiful studio on Thurstaston beach. Our location makes taking and reviewing our images a breeze. If you would like to take more interesting photographs, rather than just snaps, then this is the course for you. Ideal for couples and groups with mixed photo knowledge and experience, everyone can benefit with no prior knowledge required or assumed. This gentle day begins with an illustrated talk on composition with examples and discussion, over biscuits and tea/coffee. We then head out on a photo walk whatever the weather so make sure you dress sensibly. Enjoy a home made lunch of fresh soup and warm bread then review your shots with the group and go home with a framed print to be proud of.

Even the approach on foot to Shore Cottage was intriguing, then we emerged from woodland onto a beach with North Wales resplendent across the water. The welcome was warm and involved endless tea and home made biscuits. We three off-duty mums were relative novices to...More
