Is your camera set to 'Auto'? Do you wish you knew how to take control of it? Would you like some help and inspiration to improve your photography? If you answered yes to those questions and want a simple and easy to understand way to learn how to take better photographs we can help with a Photography Training Course by See Loch Lomond's Paul Saunders.

Course Location - Balmaha, Loch Lomond

The location for our courses is Balmaha, Loch Lomond. In this beautiful village there is access to loch side views, the Tom Weir Statue, a forest walk with views of the islands. So as well as learning about camera settings and compositions you will also return home with a memory card full of stunning photographs.

Testimonial

I recently had a photography course with Paul and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to improve their skills, from beginner to more advanced. Being able to ask questions while taking the pictures, learning why one works and other ones didn’t and getting advice on how to best frame shots has made me more comfortable with my camera. He even had me shooting in manual mode, which I never thought I would do.
