Beginners digital photography course

OVERVIEW

If you’ve just started your digital photography journey and need some basic skills to build upon, this two-session evening course is the perfect place to start. You’ll be ready to “break up” with automatic mode at the end of the second session and start getting creative.

Our starter course meets for two evening sessions in Zurich. Our approach is to offer friendly, hands-on learning that familiarises you with your camera’s functions and how to use them in real photography situations. Join us as we take the mystery out of digital photography and put the creative control in your hands.
