The New, Pennycress Academy Photography for Beginners, online course is aimed at those who want to learn the basics of photography. Perhaps get the camera off auto or simply learn to take amazing images of family or travels.

It is an online course with 6 lessons that you download and complete at home. Making it perfect as an evening class or for home educating families.

The course is divided into 6 easy to follow, short, video classes which build up knowledge and skills slowly. There are ideas of activities to try at the end of each lesson, and doing these will further embed the learning and improve your photography. Each lesson also has a handout which you can print and keep as a reminder and guide.

The infographic below shows the outline of the course but if you have any questions do please ask.

The course is, I hope, very affordable at just £25 for the whole course, which you can complete in your own time. Once you have purchased I will send over a link to the Private Facebook group where the videos and files are uploaded. You can ask any questions in the group or can contact me on or through the contact form here.



My Background….

I started Home educating my Son in 2018 and noticed there were virtually no photography classes for children and teens out there. Some were more specific and some really expensive, so I decided to fill the gap and write some courses myself. After getting many requests for a beginners course to run in addition to the Children’s course I wrote this one, I hope you enjoy it as well as find it informative.

I am a former Primary School Teacher and Adult Education Tutor with a keen interest in helping others to follow their natural curiosity and to learn.  I have had my own portrait photography business for 13 years and have been training adults for many years in Newborn photography.
