Learn and enjoy photography in Birmingham with Pete Ashton
About Photo School
Photo School has one core aim: to help you get control of your camera and take great photos.
Photography is made up of many simple concepts that, when combined, can lead to frustration and confusion. By breaking them down and having them explained in simple terms you, too, can take photos you can be proud of.
Photo School is run by Pete Ashton, an established Birmingham artist, photographer and trainer.
Pete has been teaching photography through Photo School since 2012. He specialises in teaching beginners and particularly enjoys the challenge of explaining complex concepts in simple terms.
Not everyone wants to be a “professional” photographer. Most people just want to take better photos. Photo School can help you do that.
Master the controls of your camera and learn how to take photos you can be proud of. No prior knowledge required!
Upcoming Beginners Classes
Beginners run from January to June and September to December.
Explore the hidden corners of Birmingham through the safety and inspiration of a group photo walk.
Photo Walks are about slowing down and really looking at the details of the city while learning from being in a group. More a meander than an exercising walk, we usually cover a mile in 90 minutes mixing in a bit of local history, myths, legends and tall stories. While not a formal workshop, I'm always on hand to offer advice and help you get the most out of your camera.
All cameras and levels of experience are welcome. I've even had people come without a camera for the experience of looking at the Birmingham in new ways.
