Leisure Courses

What career opportunities can this lead to?

The college offers a range of Photography courses within the leisure department, as well as a number of accredited courses. Please browse the website for details.

What are the entry requirements?

This course is suitable for anyone interested in wedding photography; there are no formal entry requirements.

What does this programme involve?

You will learn about the different approaches to wedding photography currently in use today, i.e. traditional formal; reportage and how to prepare for the day with the bride and groom and establishing what they want and plan the day with them.

You will learn how to select the most essential equipment to take with you to photograph a wedding, and when to use it and what to look for in the locations and backgrounds as well as what to avoid.

You will learn how to use different camera exposure controls to achieve the best effects for the many different shots you will take at a wedding and understand and how to create good techniques of lighting (including how to use flash), posing of individuals, couples and groups, and expression and the many options for presenting the preview and final images to the clients.

How is the programme taught and assessed?

Your learning will be assessed at the end of the session by looking at your work during the workshop and the results of the photos taken during the practical sessions. Your downloaded images will be projected onto a screen for the class to see, and feedback given.

A college certificate will be issued on request.

What else do I need to know?

Please bring to class:-

1. A digital camera with controls for exposure settings (i.e. not just Auto) and the facility to use an external flash unit (i.e. having a hot shoe). All digital single lens reflex cameras have these properties, so these are the preferred types of camera for this course.
2. A standard zoom lens (18-55mm or thereabouts) is all you need for this workshop.
3. A lens hood.
4. A portable flash unit (but only if you have one).
5. An note pad and pen for any additional notes you may wish to make. Hand-outs will be given on all the main points we cover in the workshop.
6. A memory stick (1Gb or more) to download any information or images on the day.

Students are responsible for the purchase of materials relevant to the course; please see below.
