Make 2018 a year to remember! with One-to-one or Small Group Courses...

Start off 2018 with some special 1-1 training. If you feel as though you need that bit of extra help and don't know who to turn to then a one-one session with Brett could be the answer you have been looking for to help take your business to another level.


If there is a group (1-4) of you that want to come along together then we can organise a small group session. Group sessions can only be booked for a full day. CONTACT the studio on 01706 340792 for more information or email through the site.


New Year, New Strategy..2017

to boost your business….

If you have something you want to learn; whether it be album production and design, shooting in the dark, flash, photography ,business and marketing skills, studio design, post production, weddings, posing, styling, using daylight, use of background, networking, business image, brochures, website design, fashion lighting, children and babies, portfolio critique or re-branding etc…. then we can help you.

Create your own course suited to your needs. All you have to do is drop us an email and explain to us what you need. This course is for any level of expertise with a maximum  of 4. Get Brett’s experience for the day with a training session tailored to you.
We started our first training course from our studio outside of Manchester  2006 and these courses have gone from strength to strength ever since. We  prefer to keep training groups small, usually between 8-9 photographers. This way we can give more time and attention to shooters individually.  Brett & Kristies personal nature and approach to training is what keeps people coming back for more. Images taken on our courses can be used for your own promotional  use, websites, blogs & promotional material images cannot be used  in competitions or sold. We ask when posting images onto Social media such as Facebook, Twitter & Instagram that Brett Harkness Photography training and associated providers are mentioned.

    Hi Brett, your DVD is superb and worth every penny. I watched the whole thing including the extras and it's inspirational. I think I might have to watch it again to try and take in all the key points and tips! Keep up the good work. and I will see you on one of your London based courses in the near future.

    Just thought I would drop by and say how helpful I found your instructional DVD. I have my first wedding to do in a few weeks and your DVD has given me a great insight into how I should expect the day to go. I found it full of useful advice and I am sure I will watch it over and over again between now and the big day. So thank you for giving me a spoonful of your knowledge! Thanks again, Pete
  • ANDY FOUNTAIN - Hi Brett and Kristie , Thank you so much for the fantastic day you arranged for Rachael and myself on Monday.  It was one of the best training experiences I have had as a pro photographer and we came away feeling confident in knowing how to drive the business on.  On the way home Rachael said we would be booking a course with you guys on a yearly basis and for her to say this is a big turn around. I think she really saw the benefit in having days like this. Thank you so much again for a life changing tremendous day.”
  • STEVE ASHTON - Got our yesterday Brett, Just after returning from the darkest wedding I have ever shot.
