Photography Course Den Haag

The Intensive Basic Photography Course is the optimal first step for any beginner photographer. Through a purposeful and practical orientation approach, you will leave ‘automatic’ and ‘snapshot’ photography behind forever. The unique 'intensive' set up adds important value to the course: there is a lot of knowledge sharing! Therefore, this course also provides a stable basis for independently developing further as a photographer.

You will learn where to start when making one photograph, the logic behind certain choices, how to make the right decisions and how to make these decisions in correct order.

The course is spread over three lessons, one lesson a week. By doing it in this way you will be able to apply new knowledge and have time to practice. You will receive two assignments and feedback on your photographs, which is one of the most effective ways to learn photography.

The lessons are given in a relaxed and pleasant  atmosphere with plenty of time for all your questions. 


We will make many pictures during the course because the best way to learn to photograph is just by doing it. Therefore, practice is central to this photography course.
