Basic Studio Photography Lessons
Our Basic Studio lessons course is aimed at those who wish to move into studio photography either as a hobby or a profession, and anyone who wishes to gain more experience shooting in a studio environment. This course gives you the knowledge to improve your skills in the studio and time to practice capturing those perfect studio shots. Students do not need to have experience working in a studio environment but are expected to have basic camera knowledge and skills. If you feel like you may need a refresher on your camera knowledge and skills behind the camera, it may be beneficial to look at our Beginner DSLR course before progressing to studio lessons.
Suffolk Photo Studio’s Basic Studio lessons are taught within our large studio complex in Suffolk, with three extensive studio spaces and hair and beauty rooms making it the best place to learn photography.
The aim of our Basic Studio Lessons is to teach a variety of studio techniques to broaden your horizons as to what can actually be achieved when working in the studio. With our excellent studio facilities at Suffolk Photo Studio, we aim to teach the majority of our lessons in the studio rather than the conventional classroom method. Our fun, relaxed approach to learning photography is what makes our lessons the most memorable so you will go away with the confidence and knowledge to build your own photographic portfolio.
The vast majority of our basic studio lessons will be taught in the studio as practical
sessions with theory mixed in. We believe that hands on learning is the best way to gain a thorough understanding and we give you the opportunity to put your skills into practice in our fantastic studio space.
Our Basic Studio lessons will run throughout the month so you will be able to book your lesson at a time to suit you. We run lessons in the evenings and at weekends as well as week days to fit around your hectic work schedules.
