Photography, Photoshop and video training

We were very happy to work with Nigel as he provided a flexible and high quality learning experience. He was able to tailor the training to our specific needs which proved to be a valuable and cost effective solution. We look forward to working with Nigel again in the future.” Flo Smith,National Trust Picture Library

You do not need a state of the art digital SLR to take great pictures, in fact today’s mobile phones can take quite useable images for either work or pleasure if they are used with care. In small groups or in 1:1 sessions I can explain the features offered by the student’s  camera and show how to take advantage of them.

I have worked as a photographer for over twenty five years and have offered photography and photoshop training for over twenty. I have also taught learners at all levels and environments from 1:1 tuition through to degree.

Photography and Photoshop training in Bath and Bristol

As a practicing professional photographer I can bring ‘real world’ experience to the classroom, as a qualified and experienced teacher I can share this knowledge with patience and enthusiasm.

I have used and taught Photoshop since it was first launched in 1990,  I have also produced a series of online training videos which support my teaching.

I also can offer training on Adobe Lightroom or GIMP, the open source (free) alternative to Photoshop.

Courses are designed to provide exactly the skills required for an individual or organisation to effectively and efficiently undertake a specific range of tasks. I have taught at Bristol University, Bath University, Coventry University and Gloucestershire University, National Trust, the BBC and numerous other companies and individuals.

Popular topics include;

  • Camera operation
  • Photographic lighting
  • Colour Management
  • Video and audio recording
  • Image Editing using Adobe Photoshop
  • Image Editing and Management with Adobe Lightroom
  • Image editing with GIMP
  • The Raw file format
  • Getting the most from a mobile phone camera
  • Getting the most from your digital SLR

So whether you are taking pictures for work or pleasure I should be able to help you.

Nigel is a great tutor and has enabled me to advance my skills tenfold in just two and a half days. I would definitely recommend to any budding film makers. He’s equipped me with the competence and the confidence to go out and shoot. Kelly O’Connor, Kinneir Dufort
