Friendly Photography Courses – UK and Austria

Photography for Beginners

Get to grips with your camera with hands on help. Nothing beats being shown how to do something, be that composing a landscape or getting off AUTO and taking control

City Tours

Cities can be a bit daunting if you’re on your own, so we create safe group tours of the best UK cities. Street, documentary and architecture photography are amazing fun AND a great challenge.

All the Editing Stuff

Editing photos makes ALL the difference, and it can be really easy once you’ve learned the basics of LIGHTROOM & PHOTOSHOP. But learning the basics is THE challenge – that’s where we help. Free YouTube videos, group sessions and even 1-2-1 sessions on your system to get your running the RIGHT way before you start

Discover the Dales

Enjoy a Saturday or Sunday in the beautiful Dales – we’ve got locations from Airedale, Ribblesdale to the stunning Swaledale. Our emphasis is on photography rather than long walks… 

Night Photography

Night photography is fantastic fun, but may be really scary if you’re alone! So join a group with us to learn how to transform the dark into a fantasy world, from the basics in Leeds to full on experiences in the dales – our most popular workshops.

Using Flash on Anything! 

Make your own light using speedlites – learn how to light everything from an egg to a cocktail, a model to a car. We show you how flashes work and how to control them – then you can use them on absolutely anything you like! 

Meet Ade Wilson

Owner of Photography Courses and McFade Photography

Ade took up photography back in 2003, when the first affordable DSLR cameras hit the market. As a keen amateur, he started out as a passionate landscape photographer – travelling thousands of miles a year to find new locations to capture. Unsurprisingly, he has an amazing knowledge of Yorkshire, Northumberland and The Lake District.

As new techniques developed through the “noughties”, he was always an early adopter – starting HDR in 2007 and soon after, the first speedlite-triggers came out, so learned “how to use off camera flash”. 

Ade’s written for several photo magazines (Advanced Photographer, Olympus Camera Magazine) and has run many exhibitions through the north (Abbot Hall Kendal, Round Foundry Leeds), runs a successful commercial photography company specialising in food, property, cars and people for business (no – he doesn’t do weddings any more!). 

Ade started running workshops in 2011 to share his love and experience of photography. All the workshops are designed to be relaxed yet very informative, creative and paced to keep things “moving” – rather than stop in 1 location for hours, we keep moving so you get a fantastic knowledge of locations as well as new camera skills. 

His teaching style is to teach by example, demonstration and spend time with you individually – we were all new once and Ade takes times to explain the more difficult concepts in simple language, using analogies you can relate to – ask him about “exposure and beer”!
