Learn how to take great photos of your products and find out how to make your images look that little bit better on the web and in print. Have you tried doing some of your own pack shot and product photography for your web site or catalogues? Northlight Images provides bespoke training courses anywhere in the UK, particularly Leicestershire, the UK East Midlands (Northampton, Nottingham and Derby). We are happy to come out and help you take better advertising and product photographs, Our training courses are held at your own preferred location, where you will be taking your own product photographs and pack shots.
If you require Photoshop training for processing your photographs, we can provide additional bespoke training sessions to cover all your image editing needs. We can offer general digital product photography courses, which cover composition and lighting techniques, the technical aspects of photography (exposure, depth of field etc.) and what to do with the images once you have transferred them from the camera (including image processing in Photoshop and using images for both web and print). All our teaching is customised to individual clients requirements, so can include specialist aspects such as colour management and digital camera profiling if need be.
Whilst we can bring along an impressive array of (expensive) equipment to show what can be done, we find it much better to help people get the best out of their own set-up. If you're new to product photography and don't already own the equipment you need, we are happy to advise you on what's suitable, before any training takes place.
Please note that we do not sell camera equipment - we will simply make recommendations, allowing you to shop around for the best price. Our diverse client base ranges in size from small web start-up businesses, to household name retailers, and the UK national mapping agency. Courses are aimed at giving useful practical information that will enable you to take better photos and make better use of them. Our product photography courses are customised to your requirements, so course length depends on what you want to learn and your existing skill levels.


We are happy for more people to attend, or watch what is going on, but do note that this can reduce the amount of 'hands on' coverage we can provide. Keith Cooper, our trainer and senior photographer, spent several years at Loughborough University as a lecturer, and in addition, possesses a C&G Adult Education Certificate.
If you have been on a Northlight Images training course, we are happy to answer technical questions and clear up any related issues you might have about the course materials. This site also has free downloadable versions of some of Keith Cooper's image manipulation tutorials. Keith Cooper has organised several local photography courses in the past and has made on-line versions of some of his courses are available on this site. For a more accurate idea of costs, please contact us to discuss your exact requirements and for the prices of more than 1 day’s training. For interactive photography training we recommend a maximum of 5 trainees, larger number being more suited to seminar style presentations. Please contact us directly to discuss quotations for any international work - we are happy to work for multinational companies outside of the UK, via their UK offices.

If you are looking to buy equipment later, we can always bring a range of portable studio photographic equipment to demonstrate. We've a whole section of the site devoted to Digital Black and White photography and printing. For those who already know the basics, I will also be putting together a few photography classes or workshops for more advanced techniques.
Increasing the ISO settings in your camera  always used when you are taking photos in the dim light. White Balance: (WB) is the process of removing unrealistic color casts so that objects which appear white in person are rendered white in your photo.
The training is very much hands-on, so you will be taking lots of photos and working on them.
If you have a large group it may be worth considering a more formal lecture style training session. An example from his introductory digital photography course covers Basic Image manipulation with Adobe Photoshop Elements 2.
