January Project is - Something New

To celebrate the New Year this month's project is very open. I would like you to either take a photograph with something new or photograph a topic you have never tried before. This could be an action picture of your dog, maybe night photography or try your hand at close up photography using everyday objects around the house.

Your other option is to use any new camera kit you had for Christmas so this could be a new lens, tripod, flashgun or any other new plaything fresh out of the box.

Remember to upload your pix to the DPC Facebook Group.

Intermediate Course on Sunday 12th March and Sunday 23rd April 2017

Anyone attending the Intermediate Course in the future will require a a Polariser and a ND8 filter for the course. These can be purchased from Amazon at about £11 each or they are included in our exclusive DPC Filter Kit.

Universal Filter Kits now available

These kits were made especially for us so they are not available on eBay or Amazon. They have been put together to cover a wide range of photography skills and they will be required for the Intermediate Course and the new Filters for Landscape Photography Course. If you were to buy these filters individually they would cost over £80 but they are now available from just £35 for the 52-62mm set or £48 for the 77-82mm set.

You can order your 52 to 62mm or 77 to 82mm kits here -

NEW! Five Day Advanced Photography Course

I’ve had several experienced DPC students contact me about the 3 month Professional Photography Course and the main questions I get asked are:

  1. If I’ve already done most of the group courses do I have to do them again if I do the 3 Month Pro Course?
    Quick answer – Yes!

  2. Is there a shorter, lower cost option for people who DON’T want to become a professional photographer but would like to take their photography to the next level?
    Maybe you’ve been asked to shoot a family portrait or you have agreed to photograph friend’s weddings?
    Quick answer – yes!

This new Five Day Advanced Photography Course is only available to DPC students who have attended at least five group courses including: the Beginners, Intermediate and Portrait courses. It is not intended as a replacement to the pro course and it does not include as many courses or the personal projects with critiques and goals.

This private tuition course continues from where the other group courses leave off and it includes more advanced versions of the Intermediate, Portrait, Flash, Lightroom & Photoshop courses as standard. The last day is reserved for a course to suit your specific requirements.

The Advanced Course differs from our Five Day Intensive which is intended for novices users and includes the Beginners and basic Intermediate Course. My next availability for the Advanced Course is March 2016.

We hope you have enjoyed this newsletter.
