About Image Matters

Image Matters runs photography training workshops mostly in the Oxfordshire area covering a wide range of levels from basic camera skills up to advanced photographic techniques and editing software. Our workshops are informal and friendly and provide the ideal learning environment at a sensible price.

Our strength lies in being small enough to give each person attending, individual attention to ensure that they understand the topic being taught. When you attend one of our workshops, we will email you prior to the event to find out exactly what you want to learn and what problems you may have had when trying to learn a particular skill or concept in the past. We then make sure those subjects are covered on the day. Bring your camera, laptop or problem images or simply sit back and watch – it’s your day and we want you to enjoy it.

Subjects include camera specific courses such as the 7D Mk II and 5D Mk III; mirrorless cameras such as the Sony RX100; general introduction to photography for those who want to learn the basics; specialist techniques such as HDR, panoramas and macro; managing colour; using flash and other artificial lights, getting started in Photoshop, advanced Photoshop manipulations, setting up and using Lightroom, getting started with video and much more.

Bookings for 2017

We are now taking bookings for courses in 2017. To ensure your place, just state your interest in the contact form below to be added to our waiting list and we will contact you when a place becomes available.  Workshops are limited in number so that each person can receive sufficient attention and the individual programme can be tailored to suit those attending. There are no places available for the rest of 2016 but if you register your details and state your interests, we can contact you if a cancellation occurs.

Help after the day

Every person who signs up to one of our workshops is given free email support to help with any technical difficulties they may have relating to the workshop topic attended so you’re never on your own after the day. We also provide one-to-one training starting at £200 for a full day at your own premises.
