The Media & Arts Teaching Team at Penketh Highschool in Warrington contacted me recently to book a special three day Photography Course. Teaching beginners photography, studio photography and to consult on equipment and teaching methods.
The school will be offering beginners photography to students in the 2012-13-school term and the session was booked to help the teaching staff construct a programme.
I really enjoyed working with the team and created a three-day course, teaching the basics of photography, aperture priority, depth of field, shutter speed and ISO. The group then brought all their new skills together in practical tuitions working with a professional model and equipment.
The teaching staff left some amazing feedback and I look forward to hearing about their progress in the near future. If you are interested in One-2-One Tuition or a Group Tuition session please email me. I also offer Photography Courses please check out my Course Timetable.
We hired Rory to teach several members of staff at a high school about photography and were not disappointed by the quality of the training. Upon completion of the three-day course we all felt as though we had a strong grasp of the fundamentals of photography and had developed our skills considerably in a short space of time. The training was mostly practical, underpinned by the important theoretical elements that we needed in order to improve and learn.
I particularly enjoyed the ‘live briefs’ that were set and the immediacy of Rory’s honest and constructive feedback! Communication before and after the training was excellent. We received a full course contents email and once the training had been completed Rory sent us all the notes that we needed and a shopping list of equipment to buy for the photography course. Superb!
We hired Rory in to help teach us some basic photography techniques so we could pass these on to the pupils. The course was very interesting throughout the 3 days, with a mixture of practical’s that got you thinking about the shoot. Rory was very professional throughout and gave us some very useful information around the world of photography.
The practical’s were really good, as Rory briefed us then gave a select amount of time to produce a photo centred around the brief. We then put all the photographs produced on the screen and analysed them according to the brief. This i found most useful as it got us to think about what we had produced and where we could improve. Overall, a very useful and well-run course, highly recommended!
