The course material is presented in both a written and visual form, I will show you photographs to help you understand the techniques and also show you how to do it directly on your own camera.


A digital camera, preferably a camera with manual settings is preferred. Classes are limited to make sure everyone has a good understanding of their own camera at the end of the session.


These courses are part classroom-based tutorials, practical demonstrations and hands on practice. You will be taken outside into the Surrey hills and on return will review the images.



Tea and coffee is included, along with a course booklet for you to keep and review.

I am always happy to field questions afterwards via email, and please feel free to share your new images as well.

Courses run throughout the year and there will always be a seasonal course too!

PHOTOGRAPHY HAPPY HOUR – WEBINAR

As the majority of us are at home for the foreseeable future, every Friday from 5-6pm I will host an inspiring photography webinar for all photographers to join!

Cameras mandatory, drinks optional!

Each week will have a specific photographic theme & we will look at a particular professional photographer’s work that fits in with the photographic theme. We will discuss how the images can inspire us to take photographs at home in keeping with the theme. I will keep in mind that everyone will be creating images indoors and out, making fun assignments for everyone to complete throughout the week. Images will be reviewed in the following Friday’s Photography Happy Hour webinar.

Join us! Each webinar is £20, which includes a task sheet for the following week. All webinars hosted through ZOOM, and students will be sent a link upon booking.

Friday April 10th – Spring

Friday April 17th- Colour

Friday April 24th – Light

Friday May 1st – Shapes, Patterns & Textures

  • "Thank you very much for your time and patience with us on the day. I know we jumped round all over the place and we were asking the impossible but your tips really did help."
    H. Reynolds
  • "It was such fun to meet you and have my lesson today. I loved the no-nonsense and ‘let’s make it easy’ approach. So many professional photographers almost seem to rejoice in mystifying their art and while I’m sure there are loads of things that are very much beyond a jobbing photographer like me, it was just great to have so many of the basic things explained in clear terms and with patience and lots of memory aids. Just to sort out what buttons do what was fantastic. You are a very good teacher."
    A. Phillips
  • "We bought our camera when our children were born so we could document their lives – but have only ever used the camera on its automatic setting. The camera course has given me the confidence to explore my camera and experiment with it on different settings. The take home information leaflet has also been brilliant to refer back to with lots of short cuts and top tips. I can’t wait to get out and use my camera more. It was a really fun evening, in a totally unthreatening atmosphere and I learnt lots!"
    C. Instone
  • "Photography course with Lillie on Monday night was brilliant. Best start for a beginner with a digital camera. Who’d have thought it’s better on the manual setting!!!?"
