Photography Courses

Photography courses with Elle Jones are fun and practical, taught through bite sized exercises that illustrate each element of your camera and how to construct and image clearly and simply.

Finding your way around a new camera can be very overwhelming, your manual and photography books talk about ISO, aperture, shutter speed, white balance and all the other elements that make up the art of photography, but getting to grips with what these things mean and finding them on your prize new camera is a whole new ball game!? Knowing what button to press can be a little bit scary and before you know it, your lovely new hobby has turned into a bit of a head ache!

At Elle Jones Courses, we are qualified teachers with a wealth of teaching experience between us so you know you will be in good hands! Eleanor has been head hunted by South Lakes Adult Education and Kendal Brewery Arts Centre to run photography courses for them.
