For when it’s dark and scary out

Our Night Photography course is one of our most popular and with good reason! Night Photography is one of our absolutely favourite courses to teach.  It’s one of the few photographic mediums that look better on picture than what the human eye can see.  What that means is that by using the correct techniques, you are able to create effects that nobody else has been able to create  – and that’s an art form in of itself.

Our photography instructors get absolutely giddy when they find out that they are teaching the night course.  We always bring several flashlight, sparklers, glow rods and an assortment of tools to make sure that you get the most out of shooting after the sun goes down.  Subjects that we cover include physiograms, light painting, startrails, and light trails.  This is of course combined with lots of hands-on practice in taking crystal-clear and beautiful night photographs.

Join us for one of our favourite courses.  We would love to see you there!
