Once the main course starts, you'll progress from being a complete beginner, to being able to shoot off auto mode after 6 weeks.

If you choose to stay with the course, in 12 weeks you'll be taking photographs you are proud of, and by the end of the year you'll be the best photographer you know.

Join any time of year - you'll automatically be added to the next start date (January, April and September each year). In the meantime you will get an email every Thursday with pre-course preparation, projects and techniques to practise.


What do people say about A Year With My Camera?

"I can't tell you how excited I was this morning when I remembered my A Year With My Camera lesson about aperture priority and was able to capture some blossom and blur the background, exactly as I wanted the pic to appear."

"I'm feeling proud that I am taking photos in full manual controls."

"I've been taking photos for years and years and years, and this is the first time anyone has managed to explain the interaction between aperture, shutter speed and ISO in a way that I understand."

"A big thanks to Emma for giving me the confidence to take the camera off Auto."

"As a novice with my first DSLR I have a lot to learn but am floundering far less than I would be otherwise."

"I've had my DSLR a year this month and only just now properly understanding aperture. Emma you are an excellent teacher, I'm so excited to learn more."

"A Year With My Camera is pushing me out of my comfort zone which is exactly what I wanted."
