Come and learn everything you need to know to create stunning videos. Whether you use them for clients, family, fun or showing off on social media, a well presented video will get more eyeballs! I'll take you through everything from equipment to the final cut and from settings to stabilisation!

Nick Stubbs has been a professional videographer for over a decade. With a 30+ year background in photography, the leap to video was inevitable at some point. With the introduction of digital video, Nick decided to expand his horizons and offer not just ground video, but drone video too. He is now a fully qualified, licensed and insured UAV (drone) pilot.

Whether you own a small, family handycam, a DSLR with HD video or a cool POV (point of view) video camera, you probably aren’t making the most of it.

There are lots of simple things you can do right away. Things that will give your footage and clips a much more professional look and feel. Take it a stage further and learn to create videos that wow your family and/or customers. All our courses are bespoke so you tell us what you want to learn and we will build a course around that.

These are some of the things you can learn on our video course:

…and so on.

So many people simply record what they see and then just upload to YouTube as it is. Maybe they burn straight to DVD when a little addition here and a little tweak there can make all the difference!

We have a range of different video cameras from broadcast quality 4K cameras right down to tiny POV cameras and a few in between. Sometimes it is better to come on a course prior to making any expensive purchases so you know you will end up buying exactly what you need. We also have various software for you to see and try as well as a host of lighting set ups and equipment to play with.

I can guarantee that you will leave our course feeling not only more knowledgeable but absolutely raring to go off and start creating amazing videos!
