Captivelight offer you a range of Photography Workshops, Experience Days and Courses from a number of hand-picked providers to try to give you the best variety of workshops to suit all levels of photography. Photo Days are a great way of improving your skills with a camera or sharing knowledge within a group of like-minded people – as well as potentially getting some great pictures along the way! Over the last 15 years we have arranged Photography Days for many many people as well as working with some of the biggest names in the industry including running workshops for both Canon and Olympus. Images taken during our selected workshops have found their way into almost every major UK newspaper as well as many other publications both in the UK and around the world, and helped many of our clients win all kinds of accolades from club level to international salon level. Come and join us!
