Our courses are one-on-one and designed to suit the needs of the trainee. We wil develop a programme that fits your requirements taking into account time, availability and the amount you wish to learn.

Our tutor has years of experience in all aspects of photography. This includes both traditional film-based photography as well as digital. If there is any aspect you wish to learn about, or simply improve upon, just ask and we will build a course to suit.

You have the possibility of creating your very own course in film photography. From how film works and correct exposure when taking photos right up to developing and printing images from film. This will all be black & white photography as we no colour lab at present.
Is there a specific course length?
Our courses are designed to meet your requirements. Therfore, each course will be tailored to the preferred length for each trainee. This will allow you to fit it into your schedule, wheter for a short period to introduce yourself to an aspect on photography, or a longer period to become learn in more detail.
Can the start times vary?
As each course is one-on-one there will be no problem to re-schedule. Due to hectic schedules and unforeseen circumstances we at Black hole Stduio understand the importance of variations. However, the tutor must be given enough notice to all changes to start times. We will always do our best to accommodate the trainee.
Where do the classes take place?

However, it is also possible for some courses to take palce in the comfort of your own home. This allows the trainee to be relax before the start of the class, while also cutting down on your travel time.
Equipment, devices and peripherals!
Do I need my own equipment?
It is not necessary to have your own equipment. Black Hole Studio can supply everything required for any course offered. However, if you wish to learn about a specific camera, for instance, then you must have this with you. Remember it is always great to learn and being able to use these skills afterwards will help your recall skills and practice. We advise each trainee to have devices they wish to use available to them after the course.
