John Jules Photography offers short courses for amateur photographers who wish to advance their knowledge and skills using SLR digital cameras.

John is a certified teacher of photography. He is accredited by the European educational body SAVANTIS and has successfully taught in local colleges and from his studio for over 15 years.

Whether your interest is lifestyle, landscape, reportage or abstract photography, we cover it all and these courses will provide you with the knowledge and skills to get the best from your camera.  They also make wonderful presents.

Individually tailored courses, min 2 hours, are available and will focus specifically on the areas of digital photography you would want to improve. Prices start from £45 / hour.  These are very popular and can be held Tuesday – Saturday, during the day or in the evenings. Bookings by appointment only.

Groups can also be catered for. Held in Chester throughout the year, these courses consist of six 2-hour classes run on consecutive weeks, four are held at our studio and two will be field-based. Classes are fun and interactive. Participants are encouraged to show their work and we set simple photographic assignments during the course to put the theory into practice. Our courses focus on the techniques needed to deliver the best shots with today’s SLR cameras.


Topics covered include:

  • Functions of a camera
  • Picture composition and working with live models
  • Lighting a scene and shutter speeds
  • Steps to achieving the best picture
  • The value of editing software
