Digital photography courses at Hunday Manor

For the last couple of years most of the digital photography courses have been run at Hunday Manor and we’re really pleased with how well they are being received. Hunday Manor is an excellent venue and the facilities are great.

Bring your camera with you

Through experience we have found that splitting the course into two separate evenings works really well. The atmosphere is easy going, relaxed and informal. The only thing we ask for is that you bring your camera with you so that you can practice and familiarize yourself by finding settings and trying techniques on your own digital camera as we work through the syllabus together.

It’s always really nice to receive positive feedback and encouragment:

“Any budding photographers, or photographers wanting to learn a bit more, you can learn from one of the best professional photographers in Cumbria over a two night course”

Mike Mckenzie – CN Group Senior Photographer.

”If you’re interested in photography then this is the course for you as Graeme is a fantastic teacher and as everything is springing into life it’s the perfect time to ‘polish your lens’ so to speak.”

Keith McMean – Social Marketing Consultant.

”Graeme is a great photographer and an engaging presenter. If you’re anywhere near West Cumbria and you want to know how to get the best out of your camera, then I’d recommend these evenings to you.”

Mark Taylor – Chartered IB at Bluefin.
