About us and our courses

Cameras today have lots of innovative features, which allow you to get consistent results in a very wide range of conditions. However, they only work if you understand what they do and how they work. The EOS Training Academy offers courses and events which are exclusive to EOS cameras, meaning we can provide you with unrivalled tuition and advice on how to get the best out of your Canon EOS system.

Our training looks at the cameras and shows you how they can be used. The training programme is revised all the time and so you can be sure that you are learning the latest techniques that the very best professionals are using. Our lecturers are specialists on the EOS cameras as well as being professional photographers, who can tackle any subject due to their broad range of knowledge.

We offer a range of different styles of training, ranging from learning in a practical environment in a small group of between four and ten photographers through to hands-on classroom events with a maximum of just 12 delegates. We also offer our Online EOS Training Academy, which has over 320 tutorials on every aspect of using EOS cameras, and some of the most commonly found imaging software.

Practical Day Courses

These are full day practical courses held in locations chosen for their photographic opportunities with either Nina Bailey or Brian Hall. The group size for a lot of the events is just four delegates, with slightly larger groups of up to ten people on events where the course and topics allow. Check the details on each specific event as this will tell you the maximum group size. 

Practical Events 

Pre-course tutorial

After you book you will be sent details of an online tutorial which lasts about 45 minutes which you need to watch prior to this
event as it gives you the basic grounding for the topics and controls that we will be looking at on the day. Full details about the meeting point and what to bring with you will be sent before the event.

Course timings 

Typically the courses are daytime, starting around 10am and finishing around 4.30pm. Night courses are run in the evenings during the colder months.
