Hi you lovely lot!
Emma Holt here :)

I am often asked many questions about how I got in to Photography and why I love doing what I do!

If I am honest its, not one specific thing....

I love meeting people, getting to know them and making new friends. I also LOVE sharing my knowledge and teaching people how to advance with their own Photography....

For me there is nothing more rewarding then, teaching someone who is complete beginner how to get off automatic settings and start using their Camera properly.

I am like....'I did that, I taught them how to do that!' its an amazing feeling!

And the Customer/Student leave the lesson happy! For the first time they actually understand what Aperture is and how to compose properly! It definitely puts a smile on your face!

Hello everyone!
So how you are all doing? Who has managed to get with their Cameras??

Today, I am sharing a spot of inspiration with you all and reaching out to those of you who really struggle understanding the settings on their Cameras.....

Or perhaps you have your Camera hidden away in cupboard....because you just dont know how to use it properly!!!! Maybe its collecting dust and you haven't even took it out of the box yet!???

Does this sound like you???

So why haven't you learnt to use it yet? Don't let fear stop you from really understanding Photography or actually learning how to use your Camera......

Did you know actually getting creative and connecting with nature and your surroundings is so good for your mental health......

Dont you think you owe it to yourself to actually learn how to use your camera properly?

Hello everyone! Emma Holt here! Founder of Emotive Capture Photography School....

So.......If you ever feel like your Images are missing something, or they just aren't standing out enough! There is a strong possibility YOU aren't making that connection with your Subject matter!

Connection and a really well thought out Composition is such a important part of Photography, although its so often missed!!!

Why? I hear you ask, perhaps its because individuals are just in a race to learn all the technical aspects...

They may have just purchased their first DSLR, or are looking to advance to the latest model and all their efforts are on learning correct exposure and getting off Automatic settings...by passing just getting a correctly balanced composition. Moving on to the technical side just so you can start repeating all the technical jargon you have heard, then feeling like you have made it as a Photographer, because you know the difference between your Aperture, Shutter speed and ISO.

When you do this, you are forgetting the fundamental basics of Photography, the fundamental basics of being CREATIVE...and the fundamental basics of having FUN! You are meant to enjoy your passion and your Hobby! I mean if you are not enjoying it than whats the point ?

What do you all think?
Do you find yourself concentrating on the technical side and forgetting to be creative and actually enjoy the art of Photography?

Would love to hear your thoughts! :)

Our story...

Based in Lancashire, Emotive Capture Photography School, was founded by Leading, Full time, Professional North West Photographer, Emma Holt BA(Hons). Emma has become well known for her atmospheric and emotive Photography. Exhibiting across the UK and abroad, her work has been published in various magazines and publications, including written articles. Whilst studying Photography at University, Emma won the Student of the Year award and went on to be chosen to exhibit in South Africa and finally graduating with a 1st class Degree in Photography.

Emma’s vision for the Company, was not only to set up a school of Photography, that taught individuals how to use their CAMERAS and get off AUTOMATIC settings, but to really connect with their surroundings, to explore the great outdoors and to actually relax from a busy working week. We aim to get Students to really connect with their surroundings...

Mental illness is on the increase, by letting go and spending time connecting with your creative side, enjoying the beauty in nature and immersing yourself in your surroundings is such a worthwhile and proven pastime, it helps to ease Anxiety, Depression and also engage in the act of mindfulness.

Time out means a healthy mind!

Emotive Capture also champion Women in Photography, especially Women in Landscape Photography. Their isn’t many Women teaching the subject on location. Why is this? Our founder Emma Holt BA(Hons) decided to challenge and continue to change this. Safety could be the underlining reason, although there are ways around this. Emma is lucky that her Husband Chris, supports her and always accompanies her during Workshops and when she meets her Students on 1:1 Tuition.
