Courses & Workshops

David Rann has taught photography at Birmingham Botanical Gardens since Jan. 2007 and has also taught at MAC, and Stratford-upon-Avon College (NCFE Level 2).

Since roughly the same time, he's also been running his own workshop events at the Fotofilia studio as well as other locations.

We now run a much wider range of courses and workshops from our own studio. Here are some forthcoming courses...
