Improve Your Photography workshop

Improve your photography with Austin Taylor!
Have you just bought a new camera? Perhaps you're keen to learn more about the camera you've had for some time but were always too busy to find out what it can do? Modern digital cameras are absolute marvels of technology and capable of amazing results. Let me show you how to get more out of your photography and have some fun at the same time!
In my photography workshops I bring together a small group of people (usually 3 to 5) keen to improve their photography beyond taking basic snapshots. You don't need anything more than basic photographic experience or knowledge - just bring your enthusiasm and a willingness to learn. You don't need a sophisticated camera either, a simple compact camera will be fine but you will be just as welcome with a more advanced bridge camera or a digital SLR too.
I will help you learn about photographic techniques and show you some of the things your camera can do. We will have a couple of hours indoors first to give you an introduction to photography - light, composition, technique - and getting to know some of the controls on your camera so you can make best use of it to help you take great photographs. We will then visit some different locations to try out what you have learned and then spend some time reviewing the photographs you've taken. We will also try out some simple techniques on the computer to make your photographs even better. All this from the relaxed and informal surroundings of my studio in Lerwick for tutorials and then enjoying Shetland's great outdoors for the rest of the time.

What's the refund policy?
Cancellation with refund in full (less any booking fees incurred by me) will be accepted up to 7 days in advance of the workshop. Cancellation less than 7 days in advance will normally result in no refund unless I am able to fill your place prior to the workshop commencing.
In the event of circumstances arising beyond the control of either party and which could not have been reasonably predicted mean either (1) Austin Taylor Photography must cancel the workshop, in whole or in part, or (2) the client is unable to attend the whole or part of the workshop; the affected party shall be entitled in these circumstances to cancel the remaining portion of the Contract. In these circumstances and where Austin Taylor Photography has to cancel the fee will be refunded in full; where the Client has to cancel the fee paid by the Client will be returned to the Client (less any non-recoverable costs or fees already incurred by me).
