Intermediate Photography Course


Learn the art of beautiful photography and how to use your camera to its full potential with The Donkey Sanctuary's friendly donkeys in Sidmouth, Devon.

This course is your opportunity to take your photography to the next level by taking part in the sanctuary's very own photography course, run by local photography tutor, Gemma Varney. There is a fantastic amount of wildlife, nature, landscapes and of course, hundreds of wonderful donkeys at the sanctuary to harness your improved photography skills on.

This course will give you the confidence to step away from using automatic settings. You will learn about the various manual settings and how they can enhance your creativity when taking photographs. This is followed by a practical session where you can put everything you have learnt into practice with the friendly, photogenic donkeys.

The course costs £70 per person, including a buffet lunch and refreshments throughout the day.

To book a place on the Intermediate Photography Course please call 01395 573156 or email Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first serve basis so we recommend you book early to avoid disappointment.
