Event Details

Led by Guardian photographers Kevin Rushby and Andy Earl, this full-day masterclass is ideal for enthusiastic photographers looking to develop their skills.
Whether you want to document a trip, capture a special occasion or complete a photojournalism assignment, our tutors will help you find your style as a photographer. You’ll be able to master the manual settings of your camera and create images that express your personality. 
Over the course of the day, you’ll also receive advice on post-production as well as expert tips on selling, publishing and exhibiting your work.
