Photography Workshops Linlithgow

"I already had the passion and the equipment for photography but I was struggling to get to grips with how to best use my camera. The question was who do I go to?

Well look no further than Rebecca Holmes Photography. I signed up for a day class on how to use your camera manually rather than the bog standard Auto function. The presentation and the manner in which Rebecca talked about the functionality of a digital camera was not only very informative but extremely easy to follow. I can’t stress enough how comfortable I felt considering I had only ever used the Auto function.

As the day went on and after each module my confidence grew and I was itching to get home and go out and about and explore my camera. Even though I wanted to go home and practice more I could easily have stayed and listened to Rebecca explain and demonstrate the wonderful world of manual use of a digital camera.

If there was to be a master of photography then I would hands down give the award to Rebecca Holmes.

See you soon at the Intermediate Class!"

Beginners Photography Workshop

'From Auto to Manual in One Day'

Have you ever wondered what all the settings on your camera are for? Do you want to know how to take control of your images rather than allow your camera to make all the decisions? Have you tried photographing in manual mode but never really managed to 'get it'? Confused about depth of field and it's impact on your images? 

If any of the above is you then this workshop is perfect!

Youth Beginner Photography Workshops (ages 12 - 18)

Sunday 31st May 2020

I love watching the light bulb moments as people suddenly 'get' their camera! They're so excited about what sort of images they can create now that they know how to best use what they have.

In this workshop, you will leave auto settings behind and confidently move to full manual. You will learn how to take control of your camera, leaving you free to explore your creativity.

The workshop will be hands-on with plenty of time to practice. To attend you must have a Digital SLR or mirrorless camera with interchangeable lenses. You must also bring a copy of your camera manual with you on the day (if you've lost yours, most are available to download online).

The workshops take place at Mackinnon Scout Hall, Linlithgow bridge and will run from 10am - 5pm. A delicious lunch and plenty of snacks and drinks are be provided to keep you fuelled.

Workshops can also be purchased as gift vouchers.


Intermediate Photography Workshop

'Unlock Your Creativity'

Sunday 24th May 2020

So now you know your way around your camera. You're fairly confidently taking beautifully exposed photos (most of the time) and are really enjoying the art of photography. You know how to photograph in manual, and choose to use it or auto depending on the situation.

However your images are lacking that extra 'edge'. A bit of the 'wow' you see in the images professional photographers take. 

This workshop is for you.


This workshop is open to anyone who understands, and can fairly confidently photograph in full manual mode.

In this workshop we'll expand on the knowledge from the beginners course and give you the tools you need to open up your creativity, and produce some really professional-looking image. Topics covered include;

  • Composition
  • Histogram
  • White balance and use of colour
  • Intermediate depth of field
  • Creative use of light
  • External light metering
  • Lots of guided practice and feedback!

Workshops take place at Mackinnon Scout Hall, Linlithgow Bridge and run from 10am - 5pm. A delicious lunch and plenty of snacks and drinks are be provided to keep you fuelled.

Workshops can also be purchased as gift vouchers.

About Me


I run a thriving family and commercial photography business based in Linlithgow and have been photographing professionally for over two decades. I also have experience in teaching and facilitating workshops from my time in the corporate world.

I am enthusiastic, fun and relaxed both as a person and as a trainer. I am really good at converting tech-speak into easy to understand information and I work in a very hands on way.

I firmly believe photography doesn't have to be difficult, and that with just a small amount of understanding and a few tweaks to technique - anyone can significantly improve their images.

I am really looking forward meeting you all, and seeing the 'light bulb moments' as you get to grips with your camera.
