"I found Rosie's photography course insightful, fun and inspiring. Her informal manner made the lessons feel like I had invited a friend round to teach me the basics of photography, and as a result, I think I digested the bite size tips more quickly. I feel like I've learnt a lot about photography in a very short space of time thanks to her clear communication and obvious talent. The fact that I can dip in and out of the videos at my leisure made the whole experience easy and enjoyable."

Do you enjoy photography and have a gorgeous fancy camera but always find yourself using it only on auto mode?
Or perhaps you briefly tried out the different settings but ended up feeing completely confused and overwhelmed by photography?!
It's really exciting when you buy a new camera - you have all these hopes and visions for beautiful photography, but the reality of loads of confusing knobs and dials when you get it out of the box can be frustrating!
If you've felt disappointed with the photography you've been shooting on your DSLR (a camera where you can change the lenses) or bridge camera then this is the perfect photography course for you!
I'm Rosie Parsons, owner of Rosie Parsons Photography - an award winning professional photographer with 10 years experience. My photography has been featured on the cover of Professional Photographer and in OK! Magazine among others.
I would love to come alongside you, to be your guide and help you discover the easy, step by step path to understanding your camera and improving your photography.
In my Photography 101: DSLR Photography for Beginners Course we take things at a really easy pace, thoroughly explaining all the key photography settings you need to know, how to adjust them and how to choose the correct photography settings in any given situation from dark rooms to bright sunny days. You'll get to watch me in action as I photograph events like a christening and how I adjust my photography settings inside the dark church, and what settings I choose outside in the bright sunshine to capture great family photos and candid photography.
Take this photography course with its easy to follow, bite sized lessons and photography challenges (plus our exclusive Facebook community only for students of this course) and enjoy a huge improvement in your photography skills!

"Rosie's photography jumps out at me, amongst a sea of the many photographers out there, because her material is genuine, heartfelt, spontaneous and I just love how she captures moments. Her content, subjects and framing are spot on, and the colours always so vivid. They make me feel as though I am right there. I'm excited that she has started a photography course which will spread her knowledge, and teach how to shoot the way she does!"
- Amanda Byram, TV presenter Total Wipeout

"I love Rosie's candid, joyful style. The ordinary becomes beautiful and meaningful thanks to her use of colour and light and her talent for framing a shot. She has a knack of bringing sunshine to every image and that's what we wanted conveyed in our wedding photography - the happiness of the day. Rosie absolutely delivered on this and we were thrilled with the results!"
