This week we’ve been teaching the second week of our 10 Day Advanced Portrait and Wedding Photography Course as well as our 5 Day Digital Manipulation Course.  Although we’ve had some rain in Bournemouth this week we have been lucky with the weather when out on location, and even had some lovely warm sunny days.

Our new coffee table book Graphistudio wedding albums have arrived and are now on display in the studio.   They look fantastic and work really well as a contemporary alternative to our handmade Italian linen albums.

Don’t forget to put your clocks forward this weekend and that it’s Mothers Day on Sunday!

Take a look at our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/firstpointphotography) to see what our students have been doing on our courses recently!


Here are a couple of comments from the students who have attended our courses in the past few weeks:


Jamie- Enjoyed week 2, I liked the freedom to set up the studio and arrange the lighting ourself.

Rachel- Informative and fun, fully enjoyed my time at First Point.

Dave- Excellent tuition, knowledge, friendly atmosphere, enjoyable.

As usual this week, we’ve been busy teaching our courses.  With the first day of spring just gone we’ve got lucky with the weather whilst out on location, which meant the students on the 10 Day Advanced Portrait and Wedding Course got some great shots out in the sun!  Don’t forget to take a look at our facebook page www.facebook.com/firstpointphotography to see some of their images.  

We’re also looking at new courses to run, but there is no final decisions have been made yet but keep a look out for new and upcoming courses that we will post on our website www.firstpointphotography.co.uk

We’ve also updates our facebook gallery with some images taken by students away from the course so check that out too!

Here are a couple of comments from the students who have attended our courses in the past few weeks:

Rachel- Thank you for a fantastic course and for all your help and advice.  I got so much out of it and feeling much more positive about the future.

Mark - Fantastic!

Terry – Fantastic week, the time went very quickly!

We’ve been teaching our 5 Day Portrait and Wedding Photography course and it’s a full house again this week!  The sun has been shining here in Bournemouth and our students have been taking advantage of it by doing location shoots as well as studio shoots.

We’ve also been planning a new 10 week Saturday school where you can gain a level 1 qualification in Photo Image Capture. This will be a very hands on course for the keen beginner who may be thinking of a career in photography.  There’ll be more information coming soon so keep reading to find out about it!

For those of you who have attended the course or know us well, we are sad to say that Charlotte left our team last week.  We wish her all the best for the future.

Here are a couple of comments from the students who have attended our courses in the past few weeks:

 Lucy- I really enjoyed the course and have learnt a great deal during the week.

Jamie- Once again, another excellent course, thank you FPP.

Dave- Week 1 of 2 done.  I just wanted to thank the whole team at FPP for an excellent week of tuition and guidance.  I had a really great time and came away knowing so much more.  See you all again in June J
