It is recommended to bring a digital camera (DSLR, mirrorless, or advanced compact camera) with manual settings. Additionally, a tripod, extra batteries, memory cards, and a laptop for post-processing may be useful, course dependant. However, these are not mandatory, and you can participate with any camera you have available.
Course location details are normally sent via email when you book the course. The location will be easily accessible via public transport and we try to accommodate drivers with parking. This is always dependent on the city and we have no control over parking restrictions etc.
Yes, you can use a smartphone for the class. While a dedicated camera may offer more control and options, smartphones nowadays have advanced cameras capable of capturing high-quality images. The principles and techniques taught in the class can be applied to both smartphone and dedicated camera photography. We also have dedicated smartphone photography and video courses which may better suit your needs.
Our courses are designed so you make the most of the chosen subject and walk away feeling confident you learnt something. For this reason we do not offer post processing on courses unless it is an editing course.
