We’ve had lots of fun this week as we’ve been teaching our 5 Day Portrait and Wedding Course. Again we’ve been busy doing studio and location shoots to teach our students lots of different techniques that they can use when they are creating their portfolio’s.

Also in the studio this week, we’ve been busy designing some new brochures to advertise our courses as well as assessing student’s course work for both our City& Guilds level 3 Award in Photo Image Capture and Digital Manipulation courses (good news, everyone’s passed!).

Our new look website has now gone live (there are still some slight changes to be made), so make sure you check it out and let us know what you think! It has also got all of the information about our new Tuesday evening Glamour course so have a look at that too!

Don’t forget, it’s The Photography Show this weekend in Birmingham, lots to see with all the main manufacturers being there and a wide range of wedding album suppliers and framers etc for you to look at. Unfortunately we can’t make it this year so let us know if you find anything interesting.

Here are a few comments from the students that attended the courses from the past few weeks:

Tex – Another thoroughly enjoyable course taught in an effective and friendly way.

Alice – Fantastic set up.  Very organised and professionally ran course.  Can’t recommend it enough.

Owen – An intensive yet informative week.  Excellent tuition and tutors who are willing to help whenever required.

Richard – The course was fantastic, enthusiastic instructors and models.  Everyone was very helpful every step of the way and most importantly I have learnt a lot.  Thank you.

Another week gone, and what a busy week too! We’ve been teaching both our 5 Day Portrait and Wedding Course and 10 Day Advanced Portrait and Wedding Course this week.  We've had great fun teaching studio and location shoots to all of our students!

We’ve also been printing lots of images for clients, as well as preparing a new gift to give to our clients who come in for a shoot! We are still making plans for our new Tuesday evening glamour course, which will be offered to students who have already attended our portrait course.  It will be advertised shortly on our website and facebook page, so keep a look out for that!

Here are a few comments from the students from the last few weeks:

Frank - Great personnel and great models, enjoyed the whole 2 weeks, thank you all.

Mark - Thank you all for a great course, with excellent instructors.

Leanne – Loved the course, it has definitely beneficial. All the staff are lovely and really welcoming.

Danny - Excellent!

Phil - Already recommended the course to others on resettlement.

Another wet and windy week here in Bournemouth, but that hasn’t stopped the students on the 10 Day Advanced Portrait and Wedding Photography course going out on location! They’ve been out and about in Bournemouth and the surrounding areas, as well as doing shoots in the warmth of the studio.

Elsewhere in the studio this week we’ve been assessing students course work for both our City & Guilds level 3 Award in Photo Image Capture and Digital Manipulation courses, as well as putting together a new line of coffee table book wedding albums.

Don’t forget to keep a look out for our new look website that should be up and running in the next couple of weeks.

Don’t forget to check out our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/firstpointphotography where we’ve also been uploading some new images taken by students who have attended our courses.
