Beginner's photography workshop

Are you the proud owner of a camera? DSLR, mirrorless or compact? Do you feel frustrated you're not getting the results you want using automatic modes?

Let your host Mickael put your mind at rest. Under his guidance, get to grips with your camera and all the modes you can shoot on, in this photography workshop for beginners.

Discover how to use your camera's composition grid and focus points, what ISO is, everything you need to know about aperture and shutter priority, in addition to shooting on manual mode in this three-hour experience.

Mickaël will simplify all your camera's intimidating function buttons. This experience is about stripping photography back to basics and making your camera easier to understand. By the end of the workshop, you'll have all the encouragement and foundations you need to take your photography journey to the next level.

The meeting point for that experience is in front of the Courtyard Café which is located next to the main parking of Ashton Court (the one linked to the entrance next to UWE campus buildings). Try to arrive 15 to 10 minutes before the workshop is due to start.

Minimum fitness level required.

Mickaël Malaper

Mickaël is the man behind the camera at Malaper Photography. He pursued his interest from an early age and couldn't get his hands on his first single-use film camera soon enough.

After purchasing a Reflex camera before a summer trip to Canada back in 2016, Mickaël got hooked to photography, after few years of self-learning and a Covid lockdown he realised he wanted to turn his favourite hobby into a freelancing career.

Mickaël loves this medium for storytelling - how one image can create lifelong memories and inspire joy, without uttering a word. As a host, he aims to empower his guests to do the same.
