If you don’t believe that photography is a great evil that steals your immortal soul, listen up. Learn to be snap happy with a one-day photography course for beginners.

Whether you have a digital camera, an SLR, a camera phone or one of those big boxy things with a cape over it, your photographs could be better. We’ve seen your album, it’s a disgrace. And we’re no longer friends on Flickr. Awful.

But your appalling, ungodly photographs can be transformed into the most beautiful images the world has ever seen, with a bit of tutelage. In this one-day course, photo experts will show you which way to point the thing and which button to press. And then other crafty tips to make your super snappy snaps shine.

The course takes place in the some of the loveliest, picturesque venues known to man or beast. Hopefully you’ll take some shots of the glorious countryside and not seventy-four identical pictures of your thumb. With locations such as the Severn Valley Railway, Shugborough Estate and Chatsworth House, nice things will happen, I’m sure.

As well as taking ace photographs of buildings, animals, grass, people and stones, a delicious lunch will be provided. Not sure if there will be crisps. If you can’t live without crisps, take your own crisps. It’s a free country; you can have crisps if you want them. Or Wotsits.

Perk your pictures right up, right right up, with this fabulous one-day digital photography course.
What happens on the day?
This lovely package allows you to choose from a range of digital photography courses taking place at more than a dozen venues around the UK, including; Shugborough Estate (Staffordshire) - The estate includes working historic buildings, animals, fountains, statues and landscaped grounds - great subjects for all kinds of photography, plus costumed staff that make excellent portrait subjects at a low low price. Severn Valley Railway (Shropshire) - The photographic opportunities at this venue are tremendous; everything from the river valley wildlife to period station details, and of course, the trains and carriages themselves. Of course. Stourhead (Wiltshire) - Stourhead Gardens are truly idyllic, and have been used in films including 2005’s Pride and Prejudice, the one with The Rock and Floella Benjamin. The venue offers excellent photographing opportunities around the lake, temples and grottoes throughout the gardens. But beware of grotto hawks. Chatsworth House (Derbyshire), Sudeley Castle (Gloucestershire), Charlecote Park (Warwickshire), Portmeirion (Gwynedd), Sheffield Park Gardens (East Sussex), Ashton Court (Bristol), Birmingham Midland Arts Centre (West Midlands), Crystal Palace Park (London), Pollok House (Glasgow), Culzean Castle (Ayrshire), Henley-on-Thames (Oxfordshire) and Malvern Theatres (Worcestershire) are other places. Upon arrival at your chosen venue you will meet with the rest of the group taking part in the course. AN awkward silence will ensue, or possibly wild flirting. You will be greeted by your skilled tutor, who will spend the day giving you expert advice and teaching you the secrets and voodoo of digital photography. The course includes entry into the venue, as well as a delicious, edible lunch. Different courses are available tailored to different types of camera, so whether you're trying to make the most of different modes on an automatic compact camera, learning to master different manual settings with a Digital SLR, finding out how to get the best possible shots with your mobile phone camera or using an imaginary camera made out of hummus there's a suitable level for you.....
