You can now take part in a Live Remote Shooting course with the Nikon School UK, where you'll be able to take photographs alongside a Nikon School professional trainer, without leaving your home. 

During a Live Remote Shooting course, customers can participate by either watching along from the photographer’s point of view, seeing the exact in-camera setup in real-time or by actively taking part in changing the camera settings themselves from their home device.

Neil Freeman, Training Manager for Nikon School UK says: "We’re really excited about introducing Live Remote Shooting to our course line-up, providing all photographers with accessibility to remote locations and the unique opportunity to see and shoot as we do in picturesque sites around the UK and beyond. We hope by offering this opportunity, it will enable photographers to experience photographing with new and recently announced lenses and cameras out in the field, as well as testing Nikon equipment they’ve been considering purchasing, without the need for lengthy or costly travel.

This is also a perfect opportunity for them to ask us specific questions and test out unique features live, allowing participants to see how these changes reflect in the final images they’ll receive at the end of the day."

How the live remote shooting works:

  1. A Nikon School trainer travels to a difficult to access location e.g Waterfalls and tethers the camera to a laptop.
  2. The course will be live-streamed via a video hosting platform and photographers will be able to join virtually.
  3. The Nikon School trainer will share their screen and give the photographer joint control over their laptop; this screen includes the same button functionality as if they were using the camera in real life.
  4. The photographer now has the opportunity to guide the Nikon School trainer in positioning the camera into a desired frame.
  5. With free reign over controls, the photographer has the chance to play around with settings and either direct or capture an image.
  6. Once taken, the image will display immediately on the screen providing an opportunity to see how the settings, camera and lens they chose affected the way the final picture looks.
  7. The photographer is welcome to request specific lenses or cameras to be used, including those not yet available in-store, and ask any advice Nikon School can offer.
  8. Afterwards, Nikon School will send the customer their RAW images taken on the course, allowing them to post-process to their desired specification.


Live Remote Shooting courses will join the Nikon School lineup at from October 2021. For more information, take a look at the course video trailer below.
