121 Camera Training / Studio
121 tuition can be taken Monday-Friday during office hours or Monday-Thursday evenings. There are two price levels for these options.
The price of your course will depend on the number of hours tuition, the number of people taking the tuition (1 or 2), and whether you take the training during office hours or in the evening. Please select from the options at the top to see a price.
This particular 121 Camera Training option (121 Camera Training / Studio) is for courses taken at my studio in Crowborough, East Sussex. Please note there is dedicated page for 121 Camera Training in London.
Learning how to get to grips with your camera settings is by far the most popular of the 121 tuition I offer. Whether you’re a complete beginner and want to cut through the jargon and leave auto mode firmly in the past or perhaps you are reasonably competent but need to brush up in certain areas, we can cover what you need to know.
It doesn't matter what brand of camera you use, Nikon, Canon, Fujifilm, Sony, Olympus, Panasonic or other, I can help you.
Learning about your camera and it's settings is important so you can be confident in achieving the results you want. The good news is that it's not actually too difficult, usually a complete beginner can gain the basic knowledge needed in a few hours or so.
My aim is to get you to move away from the fully automatic modes and have you controlling exposure and depth of field yourself. I break it down in to simple elements and guide you through the booklets I have created, these are yours to take home with you afterwards. I do however recommend jotting down some notes of your own as this often aids the learning process.
SOME TOPICS THAT CAN BE COVERED:
SHOOTING MODES: Programme, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority & Manual
RAW v JPG
AUTO FOCUS MODES
1-2-1 OR 1-2-2 CAMERA TRAINING

Crowborough is on the London Bridge to Uckfield train line and it takes approximately 1 hour from London Bridge to Crowborough, direct. My studio is just a 1 minute walk from Crowborough Train Station.
I do only have one parking space at my studio so it’s best to check with me first if you can park at the studio. However there is a free public carpark at Jarvis Brook Recreation Ground which has short and long stay parking. This is just a 1 minute walk to my studio.
There are further directions, including a map on my Contact page here.
