Picture yourself as a photographer?
The BFBS’s next level 3 photography course starts on 15 November, and you can use your ELC to fund it. Act now to register your interest …
The BFBS Academy level 3 photography course is aimed at serving military personnel, ex-Service people and veterans with a passion for photography. It is open to all, regardless of age, rank or previous photography experience. Whether your preference is urban landscape, portraiture or anything in between, the course is for you! It is designed for those with a passion for photography, so even if you have never picked up a camera in earnest, you will quickly learn the skills required to take a memorable image. BFBS accepts Enhanced Learning Credits and is particularly keen to accommodate those who have been wounded, injured or become sick while serving.
The course will run for two weeks, from Monday to Friday, at BFBS’s dedicated media hub in Chalfont St Peter, Buckinghamshire. Led by two experienced photographers and tutors, Rupert Frere (Army) and Ross Tilly (ex-RAF), the course covers both theoretical and practical aspects of photography.
The tutors will bring real-life experiences to the classroom, making each lesson relevant and engaging. Some activities are classroom based while others take place out and about, in either a rural or urban environment, supported by the tutors.
Says June MacMahon, head of BFBS Academy: ‘We pride ourselves in delivering established accredited courses, as well as bespoke training. Our reputation is unrivalled among our clients, who range from government ministers to people leaving the Armed Forces. With this new level 3 photography course we are really looking forward to being able to offer the expertise of industry heavyweights Rupert Frere and Ross Tilly in a course tailored specifically to the wider military community.’
When: 15–26 November 2021. Monday to Friday, 9am–5.30pm
