First Framing Photography Course for 2006 a great sucess

The most recent course brought 8 people together from all over the UK and Ireland for a memorable weekend.

These courses focus (sorry!! but it won't be the last terrible pun) on particular framing issues from a photographer's point of view.   It does offer a chance for like - minded individuals to chat about their photography, as well as having the chance to use materials, which really do set your framed images apart from those pictures. forced in to ready made frames. 

In the past, these sessions have suited the needs of the professional and the serious hobbyist alike.  Our haul of professionals includes portrait and wedding photographers, landscape photographers, sub-aqua specialists, not to mention some exceptionally talented amateurs, who have gone on to earn money from their framed exhibition work.

The photography weekends provide the perfect introduction to framing your images in style and in ways that can set your work apart from that of the competition.  Link this with our Business Development training and you could very quickly add a whole new and exciting element to your income portfolio. Why not see what develops (warned you about the puns!)

Latest dates for the 2006 are:

  1. Beaconsfield - Saturday April 8th and Sunday, April 9th 2006
  2. West Midlands - Saturday, April 8th and Sunday, April 9th 2006
