Courses

My photography courses are operated in association with Lacock Photography, using their purpose-built training facilities at the birthplace of British photography in Lacock, Wiltshire. Courses are classroom based and include opportunities for hands-on experience, either in the field taking photographs or on the computer processing them. Each course is designed to develop your understanding of the subject, photographic techniques and to enhance your skills in planning, taking and post-processing. Group sizes are a maximum of six and your active participation is warmly encouraged.

REVIEWS BY PREVIOUS PARTICIPANTS ON MY PHOTOGRAPHY COURSES

"Thank you for an absolutely brilliant workshop today. I was very nervous of joining as I know I am just starting out with photography . You made the workshop so informative and inclusive for all levels and your photographs were so inspiring. You really made sure we all felt fully part of the discussions and appreciated everything we all had to offer in our responses ... I hope to join you for more workshops in the future .
Huge thanks again for a fantastic workshop and for being so generous with all you knowledge". LT, Cumbria, Online Landscape Fundamentals Course

"Thank you for today’s course which I really enjoyed. You clearly spent a lot of time preparing the slides and planning the sessions. The opportunity, and indeed encouragement, for us to comment and give our views was useful and provoked much thought. Listening to others and focusing my own opinions has helped me to understand the landscape photography I appreciate (and that which doesn’t move me so much), what I try to achieve in my own work and why. To this end, it was an extremely beneficial course. I also learnt a great deal, revised information and consolidated techniques ... I am just starting to put together work for the ARPS and am wondering whether the Masterclass may in some way help in this on-gong project." RH, Gloucestershire, Online Landscape Fundamentals Course

"Thankyou for sharing your knowledge and experience Robert. I feel much more confident now in going out and trying to photograph at night." SR, Italy, Online Landscape Astrophotography Course

"I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the course yesterday. I covered exactly the stuff that I was looking for and I am very excited now to get out and put the theory into practice, especially with regards to taking the moon and moonlit landscapes and the conjunction later this month." LJ, Cornwall, Online Landscape Astrophotography Course

"Thank you so very much for a fantastic workshop. It was inspiring and informative. Your photographs are really fantastic. I now have to put everything into practice. I will get a copy of your book." PL, Sweden, Online Landscape Astrophotography Course

"The workshop yesterday was excellent – it enabled me to connect up the random and incomplete pieces of knowledge I’ve gleaned through experience over the years and see them as a coherent whole, resulting in greatly increased understanding ... It was also a very enjoyable day, helped hugely by your teaching style and the level of participation that you encouraged throughout. Thank you! I’ve signed up for the Masterclass." SB, Cumbria, Online Landscape Fundamentals Course

"Just a short note to say how much I enjoyed today's course, it was excellent. Your passion and knowledge of landscape photography was both infectious and inspirational. Time in the outdoors is important to me but you have taken me to another level of appreciation; encouraging me to see and consider elements in landscape photography more thoroughly. Quite an achievement through a virtual classroom!" BD, Lancashire, Online Landscape Fundamentals Course

"Thank you Robert for today's very enjoyable workshop. We seemed to have a good group with interesting participation. I am glad that I have already signed up for your follow on workshop in February." FS, Sussex, Online Landscape Fundamentals Course

"I enjoyed your images and thought it very good teaching to include ones that illustrated poorer aspects of photography as well as good examples. It was also very good practice to give resumes at each stage. Very well done." KG, Nottinghamshire, Online Landscape Fundamentals Course

"Many thanks for a most enjoyable and informative talk you gave on your astrophotography lesson. I am looking very much to joining you on future lessons." GB, Ashford, Landscape Astrophotography Course

"I did so enjoy your Landscape Fundamentals course! I learnt a huge amount and it has given me so much to think about and observe when planning and then taking a landscape photograph. The course has really has transformed my approach and I am enjoying being able to take things forward with much more confidence. I have certainly made 'better friends' with my wide angle lens- at last! All this of being learnt whilst being spellbound by your wonderful pictures! I also really enjoyed learning the 'science behind' things- from snippets of geology, geography and physics (and also a spot of history and botany thrown it!) I find it helps so much to be able to remember things and also to work things out if one has in mind some essential 'basic principles.' A much needed refresher for my rather rusty (and scanty!) knowledge. So thank you very much indeed for a hugely informative and enjoyable course! I was unable to obtain a place on your Landscape Masterclass series next week- so will keep a look-out for when you might run it again. Hopefully I will be able to get on it then!" CR, Wiltshire, Online Landscape Fundamentals Workshop

"Really enjoyed the Landscape Fundamentals course and have a much clearer understanding now of what is likely to make a good landscape photograph. Look forward to putting theory into practice over the next few months." GM, Bath, Online Landscape Fundamentals Workshop

"A fantastic course which gave an insight not only into photography but also the astronomy. I feel so much more confident photographing the night sky and now have a greater understanding of what I’m looking at! Robert was an excellent tutor whose knowledge of both photography and astronomy was phenomenal, along with giving examples of his outstanding work and how his photographs were achieved." LS, Wiltshire, Online Astrophotography Workshop

"Very good course, it was interesting and we were shown some excellent photos taken by our tutor Robert. He came over as very knowledgeable and very passionate about his subject, which kept me focused throughout the course. And I ordered his book this morning. I think it worked well over the three 2 hour online sessions, as it gave my brain as chance to absorb all the information I had taken in. I would be happy to do another online photography course in the future." DC, Wiltshire, Online Astrophotography Workshop

"Really enjoyed the Online Astrophotography Workshop from Lacock Photography. The three, two hour sessions were fascinating and full of useful information. Robert is an excellent tutor and really knows his stuff. The virtual classroom platform worked really well." CG, Gloucestershire, Online Astrophotography Workshop

“Just wanted to thank you very much for a great afternoon and evening. Really enjoyed the course and hopefully I can put all your advice and instruction into good use. Very excited to be able to take amazing photos of the stars." RW, Wiltshire, Astrophotography Workshop

"I learned heaps from this course. The weather was rubbish so we didn't have the practical session but it really did not matter one bit! Robert was excellent and gave time to each of us when we needed it. Having a group six is genius because everyone is relaxed and is able to extricate what they need from the tutor. Brilliant course - and we all bought his book!
The organisation and catering was also excellent. Its a nice environment to learn in." PJ, Somerset, Astrophotography Workshop

"Thanks for a great time. Will post a couple of my images soon & would love to know what you think of them." LC, London Astrophotography Workshop

"A wonderful and practical introduction to astrophotography with a tutor who generously shares his knowledge. Great hosts to boot with delicious food provided. Thank you." MB, Landscape Astrophotography Course

"Excellent tuition by Robert Harvey in a fine venue. The organisers were very hospitable and I would highly recommend this course. We covered the main topics in astrophotography in about 5 hours clear and well-illustrated tuition." KM, Devon, Landscape Astrophotography Course
