Ideal Focus


We currently offer Camera Basics, Composition Basics, and Garden Photography For Beginners as Group Workshops.

Camera Basics

Stumped by Shutter Speed? In the dark about Aperture? This is the one you need!

We will explore the settings beyond Automatic and show you how to take control of your camera. You will learn how to use the settings on your camera to give the results you want through creative control and accurate exposure.

This course is suitable for all cameras with manual controls.

If you are unsure whether your camera is suitable, or wish to borrow a camera for the Workshop, please contact us.

Composition Basics

Designed to complement the Camera Basics Workshop. In this session you will learn how to create photos with more impact, utilising basic rules of composition, and learning to visualise scenes before clicking.

This course is suitable for all types of camera, from the most basic compact to DSLR level.

Garden Photography For Beginners

At Arley Hall & Gardens we run Garden Photography Workshops For Beginners. These workshops are quite similar in content to our Composition Basics Workshops, but also draw a little from the Camera Basics Workshop material. The course will give you a good grounding in general photography, and so is not just for garden enthusiasts.

Garden Photography For Beginners is suitable for users of all kinds of camera, including basic Point & Shoot models.


Our One to One Workshops are fully customised  for our clients. Please contact us for more information.
