Imber Court Photography Training News

Hello from Imber Court Photo Training Here is our Newsletter for photography courses and workshops. I hope that you are all keeping well and making the most of the warmer weather. I’m not sure if this affected any of you but about 10 days ago some kind person started to send out literally tens of thousands of emails using my email address! As you can imagine my inbox was literally going at 1000mph with emails from not very happy people who were not keen on purchasing diet pills from me! I hope that this didn’t affect any of you and if you did receive one, please accept my apologies. I still haven’t a clue how this happened, but it appears to have stopped now. Don’t worry I’m still here delivering photography courses and holidays and I’ll let you know when I diversify to weight loss tablets!
I’ve managed to negotiate sole use of a fantastic ancient woodland just off of the A23 south of Gatwick. It has been setup perfectly to view a large variety of woodland birds from comfortable hides in a perfect location. I know that a lot of you are interested in wildlife photography, this is a great place to learn the basics and go home at the end of the day with some great photographs. Below are a few shots that I took there last week. If you would be interested, have a look at the website using the link below, I’ve booked 2 dates for next month and can book more for July onwards. Only 5 places available on each session.  

I posted a question on our Facebook page a few weeks ago to see if anyone would be interested in a photography trip to Iceland in November, well our first trip filled up almost straight away so I have now arranged another one for early December. If you fancy a week in the land of fire and ice photographing everything Iceland has to offer including the chance to photograph the Northern Lights check out the link below.

There is still one place available on our Highlands & Islands trip in October! 
Join Imber Court Photo Training on our photography holiday to Scotland and The Outer Hebrides (Western Isles) exploring this wonderful region of the UK. Starting in the Western Highlands of Scotland and based in Ullapool for two nights you will be photographing the stunning scenery north of Ullapool including the dramatic landscapes around The Summer Isles and Loch Assynt with the stunning Ardvrek Castle along with beautiful waterfalls and sunset at Rhue Lighthouse. Followed by seven nights exploring the Outer Hebrides including the islands of Harris, Lewis and North Uist. Based in Stornoway on Lewis for three nights and Tarbert on Harris for 5 nights. Mountains, moors and machair covered, white sandy beaches host the absolute best of Gaelic culture, land and seascapes, wildlife, food, drink, and arts.  The Outer Hebrides are unlike anywhere you’ve ever been before. A day trip to North Uist where we will be met by our local wildlife guide and escorted to see the home of otters, eagles, owls and other birdlife, the Outer Hebrides map is magical. A landscape defined by ice, wind, magical lighting conditions and ceaseless Atlantic pounding. So, if you’re looking for a captivating photographic island escape, look no further.

Finally I’m not usually one to promote photo editing software but for those of you who use Photoshop and Lightroom there is company based in the US called Topaz, you may have seen their promotions on social media, well I’ve got a copy of their noise reduction software that works in both of the above, all I can say is wow!! It does what it says on the tin! For those of you who have to shoot at high ISO settings it really is a game changer. There is a free trial that you can download to try.

Remember I’m still here for free independent advice and if you require any help with your photography please just get in touch. I’m still running our beginners courses at Painshill and Chichester and have been doing lots of full and half days one to ones recently. So if you need to polish up your skills let me know!
See you all soon!
