THE FIRST STEP IN UNDERSTANDING YOUR CAMERA, SIGN UP TO OUR BEGINNERS PHOTOGRAPHY COURSES!
I’ve heard this comment time and time again – “You can’t learn how to use your camera from one day’s course” The answer is, you absolutely can.
You will be amazed at the difference of your photographs and confidence from when you walk into my class to when you leave.

How long is the course
Our day time courses run 10am – 4pm.
Our evening courses run 7pm – 9pm.
Is lunch provided or do I bring my own?
On our daytime courses, lunch is provided by the Easthampstead Park bar menu. We will send the menu to you closer to the time. If you would like to bring your own lunch due to dietary requirements then this is absolutely fine too.
How many people will be on the course?
We limit each course to 10 delegates.
The tables are set up out with one space in between everyone.
We kindly ask for you to take a lateral flow test before the course and to not attend if you have covid symptoms.
Who will be teaching the course and credentials?
Stephanie Cronin will be your course facilitator for the day. She has been photographing since 1999, taught over 500 Berkshire students as well as teaching in further education for nearly a decade.
With her, might be Steve Cronin who is there for support and direction giver! He is also Stephanie’s husband and business partner.
Sadly due to the nature of the product, we can offer refunds as our courses run on a waiting list. If you give us enough notice to replace your position, then we can exchange the ticket where needed.
If you are needing help or guidance on what to purchase camera wise, then drop us a message. For our beginners DSLR courses we recommend a DSLR rather than a compact camera for full control of the camera and range of settings. If you are looking for our Smartphone courses; then there is no limit on the type of phone.
Help! I don't like tech and jargon!
That’s absolutely not a problem. That is not our teaching style. We like to keep it all at a foundational level with baby step teaching that makes you feel as if you can conquer your camera and creative confidence.
Learn from our experience
Stephanie taught in colleges and further education for nearly 10 years. Coupled with our photography experience, you are in capable hands!
One to One Photography Time
Not sure which direction is for you?
We’re happy to help you decide
Steph is both passionate and knowledgeable about photography and I feel much more confident about using my camera in manual and semi-automatic modes now. A really great and informative workshop delivered in a friendly and fun way…
Steph was brilliant. I have had my DSLR for a ages but never got off the presets. I had my doubts as to how much I would learn in 4 hours, but this far exceeded my expectations. I am off presets and having fun trying out all sorts of settings to get the photos I have been wanting to take. So much to put into practice. I highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn how to take better photos. Thank you Steph
A few weeks ok we went on Steph’s Smartphone photography course which was absolutely fab. From learning about the different angles and light that our photos look best in to flat lays and props – great course – fabulous teacher with a wealth of knowledge and experience
My husband and I run a unique, luxury & exclusive restaurant dining experience. We wanted some images to help tell our story.And WOW! Steph managed to capture every element of our service and the story flows so much better now. The quality of the images now reflect our brand to the T!Steph did an exceptional job on our branding photoshoot. And we would highly recommend her. She is definitely worth every penny!My husband then went on to do Summers Photography phone course, one week later which has absolutely transformed the way we too take pictures. The tips on lighting, composure and general photography hacks have really helped keep the consistency of our new brand representation. Feel free to visit our Instagram page to see the transformation over time. DaChisRestaurant2uThanks again Steph, without your help we woudl still be taking mediocre pictures.– Chido at Dachi’s Restaurant to You
Stephanie at Summers Photography is a delight to work with, makes everything so easy to understand and it’s fun too.
As a small business I cannot afford regular professional photo shoots, but with what I’ve learned and continue to learn, my product photos are more than I could have ever hoped or dreamed off.
Thank you Summers Photography x.
It was an amazing day and I learnt so much not just about photography but branding and also being consistent with your content.
Would highly recommend this to anyone who is starting a business or just needs a refresh.
Great day out thank you so much Stephanie.
