Taking photos with your DSLR shouldn’t be a battle, but we know it can sometimes feel hopeless when the Auto mode doesn’t give you the effect you were looking for, and the manual appears to be written in an alien language! You don’t need to struggle anymore because GPP is here to help you take control of your DSLR. There’s lots of buttons, dials and options but we promise it’s not as scary as it seems! Our workshops are fun, practical and packed with essential information that will help you master your camera.
