From October 2015 to June 2016, I have had the privilege of teaching three classes per week at Bury Adult Learning Centre in Bury, Lancashire. All three classes have been a collection of fabulous people of various ages, from 18 to retirement. They have all made great progress as they have progressed from point-and-shoot photography with the camera in auto mode, to being able to take control and have the confidence to use the manual settings as well as develop a creative eye for composition and design.


It has been a pleasure to teach this year’s learners. Here is a sample of the work that the learners themselves have selected as their personal favourites.
