Welcome to A Year With My Camera - I hope you find the workshop fun, and you see your confidence grow every week.

There should be a welcome email waiting for you in your inbox now - please have a look for it and open it, because it is full of important information about what to do next, and how to get the most out of the course.

Email not there?

If you use gmail, it might have been delivered to your Promotions folder. The easiest way to stop this happening with the rest of my emails is to drag and drop the first email from the Promotions folder to the Primary folder. Or you can add admin@emmadaviesphoto.com as a contact. Or you can set up a filter (under settings) so that all emails from admin@emmadaviesphoto.com go to your inbox.

Although most people get the welcome email within 5 minutes, a few people each day who sign up have to wait more than an hour.

Once you find the email, please open it: this trains your email service provider that you want to receive the course emails. If you do this, they are more likely to deliver future emails to your inbox than to your spam folder.

What to expect

The course starts on the first Thursday of every month (except August and December). You'll get an email every Thursday with a photography lesson and a project. The first 6 lessons will get you off Auto mode, and then the workshop continues for the rest of the year with a series of lessons alternating creative and technical photography.

If you join between starts you’ll still get an email every Thursday, with some pre-course warm up information and a small project.

THe facebook group

Details of the private Facebook group will be included in your weekly email.
