I bet in school you take a lot of photos.

Where do they end up? Do they clog up the school server? Are they uploaded en masse to your school website?

This course was created in response for a headteacher who realised, despite the volume of images that were being created, he had very few high quality examples available to truly represent the amazing things that were going on in school.

 Learn about how to improve the quality of your in-class and website images from a professional photographer.
