The Camera

Demystify the settings of your DSLR on this one-day intensive workshop with the support of photographer and experienced educator Alicia Bruce.

“Alicia is a fantastic teacher!
I attended a digital weekend workshop of hers years ago and it really helped me practice some new techniques, remember the workings of a camera (it had been 15 years), and most importantly, it was a really supportive environment to learn in. She’s even been a terrific support to me since then!”
— Flannery O’Kafka Photographer

The Photographic Portrait

A day making photographic portraits with the technical and creative support Alicia's portraits have been widely exhibited and published with some held in National Galleries of Scotland Collection. Over the course of the day you will learn how to get better quality photographs and move away from the automatic settings.
