5 day Intensive course

Becoming a professional photographer...

All our courses are run from our training facility here in rural Northumberland near Alnwick, we have a fully equipped classroom, studio and canteen. We also have acres of woodland and picturesque scenery for our practical photography shoots, lots of free parking right outside the studio make this the perfect setting for our training school.

Your tutor, Andy Brown has been in professional photography for over 20 years and has reached the very heights of professional photography. Working from both home and from studio's he has the experience to advise you on the benefits and pitfalls of both.

Our Professional courses are designed for anyone wanting to make money as a Professional Photographer, whether you have decided to become a full time professional after redundancy or retirement or you have decided to become a semi-professional and run your business along side your current job.

All our Professional courses include photography shoots as well as topics such as Digital Workflow (Adobe Lightroom & Photoshop), Business planning and looking in depth at what equipment you really need and how to use it all.

As well as giving you an insight into the everyday running of a professional photography business that most schools can't even touch on, we are completely open and share all the information so difficult to squeeze out of most courses. You will find out about marketing techniques, pricing and costings, customer relations and customer retention, business planning, basic bookkeeping, invaluable lessons on actually being self employed and so much more.
