Back in the early days when I first picked a camera up, I really was blagging it! But that was OK, the pictures were just for me to keep as memories. Had there been photography training in Wakefield, or a photography workshop in Yorkshire, I would have been there!
Now I am a full time photographer and have photographed well in excess of 200 weddings. So you could say I have moved along a bit.
DSLR cameras are quite daunting! Compared to everyones everyday camera (mobile phone) DSLR cameras have a lot of buttons and dials. Hence rather than teaching myself, had their been DSLR training, I would have saved hours and hours of trial and error! So thats why I have decided to create DSLR training / Camera Training in Wakefield West Yorkshire. The camera training will be for people of any ages wanting to shoot any style of photography. Just bring your DSLR camera, and Ill show you how to get so much more from it
In my 14 years in the prison service I did a lot of teaching of many different subjects. Every single time the feedback I received was phenomenal and a regular piece of feedback was how I got the message across with such ease. So, as it appears I am on OK tutor and with my passion of photography I have decided to merge the two together. I have actually taught a few people in the past with one-to-one sessions and the development in their pictures is amazing. One of them is on the verge of becoming a full time photographer himself!!
The camera training will be basic level stuff, explaining how cameras work, using all the different dials and what you can achieve with these dials! It will have nothing to do with weddings, the business side of things, just bog standard “lets talk about it, and then go do it’ type of photography training. Oh, and of course with everything I do, the photography workshops will be a lot of fun!
Get to know your DSLR camera
Ever wondered what all those dials are on the camera?
Ever wondered how photographers get photos with lovely blurred backgrounds or cars blurring across the image?
Come and join our photography workshop and step away from the green square (Auto Mode)
On this page you will see some personal photos of mine, I will show you how they were done with just a little bit of knowledge of your DSLR camera. All simple little tricks with amazing effects. All the photos were also taken on a very old basic DSLR camera!!!
The Wakefield photography class will cover how the camera works and what it needs. What the different dials do, how to achieve certain images.
Most of the day will be spent at various locations actually trying out what we have been talking about. Thats the best way to learn!!
“I had a one to one day with Matt and he showed me all the ins and outs of my DSLR. Since my photography has developed more than I ever thought it would. He stepped away from the jargon and spoke to me in simple terms that everyone could understand”
