Whether you want to learn more about composition or you have a new camera that you want to take better pictures with, MacLean Photographic can help.

We run 2 hour workshops at a time that is convenient for you. The course is biased towards ‘hands on’ photography rather than classroom theory. A typical session will consist of a short presentation over a coffee and then it is out and about to put what you’ve learnt into practice.

As part of your course fee you can contact us to ask questions and for guidance anytime.

COST: £50 with a 20% discount for Dunbar and East Lothian residents.

Dunbar has some great hotels and guest houses, if you want to book somewhere nice to stay there are some great places to choose from on the Visit East Lothian website.
