If you've been looking at my Beginners Photography Course and for whatever reason have decided not to book one of the group courses then this could be just what you're looking for. 


If you love photography, you love taking photographs, you have a great camera but you're not sure of the best settings to use? Sometimes you get a fab shot but not really sure how you did it? You want to know how to take those photographs where your subject is in focus and the background is blurry for example and you don't know how to do it?


You want to learn but you would prefer not to do the group course?  Then my 1-2-1 and 2-2-1 Beginners Photography Courses could be just what you're looking for!


Learn how to choose the correct settings so that you see an instant improvement in your photographs.  Get out of Auto mode and learn how to set the correct shutter speed, F stop (aperture) and ISO for the subject you are photographing.


Some of the feedback I have received about the course


very enjoyable course. learnt alot and have a lot better confidence in using my camera features now. would definitely recommend
Spent a lovely evening training with Sarah on one of her 1 2 1 courses. I would recommend her for anyone wanting to improve their technique and knowledge. Thank you Sarah you're an absolute star
I did the beginners photography course with Angel Eyes, it was a brilliant experience and I learnt a lot. Sarah is lovely and makes you feel relaxed and supports you through your learning process. I just wish I had done this sooner. Many thanks.

What the Course includes

2-3 hours of hands on training on a 1-2-1 or 2-2-1 basis which can take place at my studio or over Zoom video call

Teas and Coffees if you come to the studio

The option to practice outside if you want to and the weather allows if you come to the studio.

Detailed yet easy to understand notes to take away with you so you can refer back to them whenever you need

Plus access to my private Facebook group for my photography course attendees where you can gain additional support after the course.


Prices are £149 for one to one and £129.50 each for two to one.  Booking is available via telephone on 07936 146121 or email me on [email protected]

The full fee is due at the time of booking a 1-2-1 or 2-2-1 course.


All attendees will need their own camera and equipment for the course and the minimum required is a DSLR camera or bridge camera which has the facility to run in manual (usually there will be a turning wheel on the top and will have the letter M), any make any model, and one lens if using DSLR.  If you're buying your first DSLR camera then my friend Nina Mace has an excellent blog with some camera recommendations which can be found HERE.  I also recommend, if you have the money to invest, buying a 50mm prime lens, this will give you very pleasing results and high quality images yet only costs around £100 to buy new.


Know someone that would love this?  Get in touch now to order a voucher for them.  They can then book on to the course of their choice as more will be running in the future too!


Prefer to learn in a larger group setting?
