Develop Camera Confidence:
If you have a great camera, but you're not confident that you know how to use it to the best of its ability, then this VIP package can help you learn great photography techniques through personalised fun and practical sessions.
Why do I love this programme?
I started running Develop Camera Confidence back in 2017 because I wanted to offer a more genuine learning experience for my students - one that enabled people to develop their skills rather than just filling their heads with lots of technical information in a short space of time.
Spending 6 months with people watching their skills and confidence grow is so rewarding and I am now able to offer this unique programme as a personalised 1-2-1 experience.
Organised to fit in with you life and at intervals that work for you you will get all the content of the regular programme tailored to how you want to progress your photography.
Why do the students love this programme?
Sarah is a great teacher who has the ability to make even the most complicated parts of photography seem easy to understand.”

"Thank you for the course. It fully met my expectations and indeed exceeded them in some areas giving me the confidence
I had been lacking in my own creativity."
Peter H: 2018
