Terms and conditions of course.

NEW! We are now also offering single day courses:

Introductory Courses: if you just want an introduction to photographing patients without committing yourself to a 3-day course, this covers the basics of how to hold a Digital SLR properly, avoiding camera shake, things to consider before, during and after photography etc.

Refresher Courses: if you're familiar with photographing patients but just want an update or need to discuss any problem areas.  

As with our 3-day courses, the single-days are CPD-approved, all equipment is provided, and we have our make-up artists in attendance.

 

Before and after pictures: a bit of cleaning can make a huge difference in appearance.
