Photography Made Simple Launch New Digital Photography Courses In Scotland

Published: Tue Feb 02 2010

The stunning National Trust for Scotland (NTS) properties will play host to a series of digital photography courses in February, March and April.

Founded by professional photographers Phil and Rachel Hibberd, Photography Made Simple firmly believes that everyone can take better pictures, regardless of age, gender or type of camera. The new calendar of photography courses in Scotland includes full day classes in DSLR photography, creative photography and compact camera photography. After class, the picture perfect vistas of Culzean Castle are an inspirational blank canvas with the beautiful residence, coastline, country park, informal and formal gardens all offering excellent photo opportunities.

The second venue features some of the finest artworks in Scotland and is set amidst stunning gardens and a country park. A fabulous place to practice photography, Pollok House is home to 1000 species of rhododendron and a bridge that stretches over the White Cart River hailing from the year 1757.

Phil Hibberd, Photography Made Simple co-founder said, "Pollok House was chosen because of its amazing variety of photographic locations and it’s close to central Glasgow. The astonishing paintings (including works by Blake) are well worth seeing, and the whole place has a strong leaning towards the visual arts. The cafe and staff are great!

"Culzean Castle is the most popular NTS venue in Scotland, and benefits from a beautiful varied location - rugged coastline, ruins, gardens, and a deer park. It's hard to take bad photographs there, especially with a bit of expert guidance."

Photography Made Simple’s photography workshops encompass techniques for beginners in some of the most popular and beautiful locations across the UK. In addition to the new photography courses in Scotland, classes and seminars are also held in Bristol, Warwick, London, Worcester, Stafford, Gloucester, Derby, Somerset, Gwynedd, East Sussex and Wiltshire.
