    Hello All, I am considered taking a photography course this October. I would regard myself as an intermediate skill level. I have been looking at the C&G 6923 Beginners Course. Does anyone have any experience of this or other courses?

    If you truely class yourself as an intermediate student I would aim a little higher. The C&G course I feel would teach you little more than you probably know now.

    You could look at a National diploma course or HNC even, I think these are better qualifications. If you pass your ND it would qualify you for a place at uni for a BA course, if you wanted to take it that far.

    Thanks for the info. I would like to do an NC course however I am limited to being able to study outside of work hours. The bane of a 9-5 job!

    HNC courses are normally run as part time evening courses, so check your local college

    Not sure how to post links but, if you go to the 'search' section of this site and search for "courses" in the forum postings, you should throw up something useful.

    I just tried this and found the 8th result to be useful as it contains two links to previous discussions.

    Good luck.

    Jonathon,

    I've done the C&G 6923 recently, and have taken part in previous discussions which you can read by clicking here and here.

    Before I started, I considered myself 'intermediate'; I had used an SLR for about 4 or 5 years and read books and magazines, and thought myself quite knowledgeable. The first few lessons indeed covered quite basic stuff about lenses and stuff, but you really do learn in a structured way that books and mags can't seem to reproduce, and of course you're having your work assessed.

    Steve

    Thanks for the advice guys. I think the C&G looks like a good start.
