Night Classes

6 Week Introductory Course.

Night Classes for Beginners
(“Improvers” should also find these useful)

Coolbawn Cross Photography will run a number of classes of varying location, length and content over the coming months.  The next scheduled class is a 6 week beginners programme which will take place in the fabulous location of the Killaloe Hotel, commencing Tuesday April 18th in and will run for 6 weeks, 7.30pm to 9.00pm each evening.

This is a general introduction to photography and as such is aimed at those with very little experience but who wish to improve their photography. A camera where it is possible to adjust some of the controles would be an advantage, though not essential.  Participants considering upgrading their camera will also find this course useful as it will help make more informed decisions.

The atmosphere in the classes will be relaxed, but informative.    You will feel in no way intimidated or ever be in danger of being “left behind”.  I am also determined that you will leave each class with some very practical tips to make an immediate difference to the quality of your photographs. My aim is that participants learn a lot and enjoy doing so. Having taught for many years I am very aware that enjoyment of a class is a really important component of the learning process.

While the classes will run from 7.30 to 9.00 each evening I will be available from 7.00 for individual questions about a participant’s particular camera and settings and I won’t rush away at the end if you need some more information

The numbers in the class will be kept small to allow for greater individual attention.
