Barrett & Coe

Barrett & Coe Photography Courses starting in May! Turn your passion into a career!

With little or no experience, our wedding and portrait photography courses will give you the knowledge to set up a full or part time business within a few months of starting. Our experience has shown it is not possible to learn all that is required to operate and run a professional photography business based on a 1, 2 or 4 day course.

This is why our photography courses are spread over a 3 or 6 months period to give you the time to assimilate all the knowledge required. We can change your life and make photography your career!

For full details on our courses please check out our website: http://www.barrettandcoe.co.uk/photographycourses
