  • Great afternoon course with Mike,covered all the topics promised & a few more besides.The practical sessions included helped me see what was being talked about. Throughout the course Mike was very patient with as I tended to dive off on tangents,explained each aspect clearly in simple terms.I shall be going back for another class,probably the Macro workshop.100% recommended

  • I requested an uncommon workshop with Mike Lester, covering the grounds of Black and White photography, and yet it was very well prepared and structured. It was taught at a great pace, and it was repeated where necessary to guarantee a thorough understanding of photography in detail. His easy going nature creates a comfortable environment where I did not hesitate to ask him to go over anything again. The skills I have learnt were highly valuable and inspired me to peruse my photography interest. I recommend Mike Lester for any area of photography you require assistance in.

Course programme

Option 1
2 Hours Tuition

Basic camera settings; manual settings, ISO, Shutter Speed, Aperture, white balance, lenses. How they relate to each other and why. This will involve a reasonable bit of theory, but interspersed with an equal amount of practical work to help develop and consolidate your understanding. Practical work will be based around photographing our model and seeing how different camera settings affect the final image.

Option 2
3 Hours Tuition

As above, plus shooting in RAW, additional practice including depth of field, basic understanding of lights and their effect, basic use of reflectors.

Option 3
5 Hours Tuition

The three hour session outlined in option 2 and supported with a basic, 2 hour, introduction to photoshop in the afternoon....giving you the knowledge and skills needed to present your images and have a basic workflow.

Sessions are delivered on a one to one basis and will be tailored to meet your experience and knowledge. Each session will focus on areas that you, as the 'student', wish to concentrate on.

Diane,our model, has many years experience. Personal feedback from shoots has been highly positive.....so I am sure that you'll find her very helpful and photogenic. She also has unlimited patience......so you can take your time whilst learning.

Mike is a very experienced trainer and photographer, able to develop your skills and help you get the best from your shoots. I am fully qualified and hold an honours degree in Professional Training and Development backed up with 30 years experience, including work with local colleges and Leeds Met University.
