Get intimate with your EOS camera

How well do you know your Canon EOS camera? Getting to grips with the basics of photography is one thing, but actually understanding how your camera works and what it’s capable of is another matter. That’s where the EOS Training Academy comes in – our team of lecturers know the EOS system inside out and guarantee that a day spent with them will unlock your camera’s full potential and give you the skills to improve your photography.

Whatever your level and experience, we have courses to suit you. If it’s your first EOS camera, we’ll get you started by explaining the basics and moving you off Full Auto mode. If you’re already comfortable with your camera and want to fine-tune your skills, then you’ll find some of the more challenging and creative courses right up your street.

Our comprehensive programme of courses has been developed over the last ten years and is constantly evolving to meet the needs of photographers and the changes in DSLR camera development.

What makes EOS Training Academy unique?

  • Our lecturers are all former Canon employees
    Each member of our team has been born and bred with the EOS system and have intimate knowledge of how EOS cameras work

  • We're educators first, photographers second
    Yes, we all love photography and are passionate photographers. But for us it's the teaching and sharing of photographic knowledge that gives us the buzz.

  • You'll learn what your camera does, not how we shoot
    Everyone has their own way of shooting, and so should you. From us you'll learn how to use your camera and how to tailor it to suit your photography, rather than simply mimicking the way we shoot.

  • Sharing of knowledge is unlimited
    There are no secrets – we're not saving the best for ourselves. You will learn what you need to know and we will share the knowledge and years of experience without limit.

Your team of tutors

The EOS Training Academy tutor team comprises of Nina Bailey, Brian Hall, Brian Worley and Ian McNeill who between them have many decades of experience both shooting with and training on Canon EOS cameras. They are all experienced teachers, and that's the passion that comes first for each of them.

See our lecturer profiles for more information.
