A big thank you to Philip for a great days photography training out and about in Edinburgh. Came away with plenty of tips and some great advice. Special note of thanks for letting me massively pick his professional knowledge beyond just landscape work which will come in handy someday.
— Dougal Nicol
Great day out with Philip teaching me how to use my camera. As a complete beginner it was great to be able to go through the basics, ask questions and get a grasp of the settings that I need to know. The weather conditions weren’t great on the day but I learnt a lot, had a good chance to practice and looking forward to applying all that I’ve learnt!
— Scarlett Walker
Had a good day with Philip learning a lot more to photography skills. More settings and how best to use them in different environments. Gave me some great tips and technique advice to use for various things from landscapes, people shots, motorsport and night photography. I liked how he took his time and went into detail explaining the different effects and reasons behind the settings. Also gave me a whole new way of looking at photos, subjects, compositions, etc. Would definitely recommend a tuition course with Philip to anyone of any level.
— Paul Crawford
Excellent day of wedding photography training. Learnt a lot and gained so much more confidence in knowing what I’m doing and how to handle what can be a potentially stressful day.
— Paul Johnson
I have done many photography courses and workshops in the past but I learnt more in the first hour with Philip than all the others put together!
— Malcolm McDonald

Most photography training is carried out in the beautiful city of Edinburgh which is a perfect backdrop for photography courses. However, as all photography courses and sessions are tailored to suit each individual I am happy to come to your home or location of choice for added convenience. If you wish to go further afield this can be accommodated too but there may be a small surcharge to cover travel expenses. 

In addition to photography training courses in Edinburgh I can arrange photography courses and trips to any location in Scotland for individuals or parties. Please call for rates and quote.
