A good retirement gift idea is not always easy and it’s a moment when you want something a bit more unusual and imaginative than a tie or a bottle of something.
A photography course could be the perfect solution to your retirement gift idea problems.
Millions of us have cameras and we’d all love to get more out of them and photography is the ideal hobby to take up in retirement.
Our beginners photography courses or beyond beginners photography courses are the perfect retirement gift idea. Our photography course gift vouchers are also a convenient way that lets your friend or loved one choose a course and a date that suits them.
Photography is both creative and practical and can be the spring board to years of enjoyment and making the most of the time that you now have to travel, to see your family grow up and to appreciate your surroundings more.
Our photography courses are designed to build the confidence of the person in what they can do and it’s definitely not all about who has the flashiest camera. It’s about learning in a practical way and pausing to make sure that it’s all going in.
Our expert, friendly tutors are there to guide and answer questions and because our photography courses are very small groups (no more than eight people on a course) there is lots of time to go over things and spend time one to one with the tutor.
Is a Photography Course a Good Retirement Gift Idea?
Our photography courses attract all ages and walks of life and whilst we spend most of the day outdoors, they are not physically demanding and ideal for someone of retirement age.
The settings for our photography courses are comfortable, safe and picturesque and we take care to make it an enjoyable, relaxed experience for everyone on the course
We run photography courses in Didsbury, in Lymm and in Bury and we also run steam train photography experience days in partnership with the world famous East Lancashire Railway where we take people to where the public can’t go – into the engine sheds and workshops where we see engineers at work restoring locomotives and carriages and we also go into the signal box which is like a time capsule from from the 1950s.
For anyone who has a love of steam trains, it is an unforgettable day.
