WPS Training Recordings 2021

2020-21 Training programme

About the training programme

WPS runs a wide range of classroom training events with qualified tutors.

These courses for our members are great value because they are subsidised by the Society.

Topics range from camera settings for beginners, to the inner details of Lightroom.

When and where

In normal times, classes are held at the Otterbourne meeting rooms (Williams Garage).

Because of Covid-19, training courses have been held online this season


If you think you’d like to order the recordings,

  • check the course details of what was covered
  • Make the booking for access to the recordings
  • You can pay by buying a ticket on Eventbrite, however we prefer that you pay as follows
    • Decide how you want to pay (BACS, Paypal or cheque) and then make payment

We need to keep track of who’s booked and who’s paid so we can send out instructions.
