Don’t know if there are any other sellers on here near Hereford, but starting in April, Hereford College of Arts (HCA) is offering an evening short course: Small Scale Studio Photography. Looks like it could be just the things for those of us wanting to improve out product shots.
I don’t know anything about the class other than what is on the website, so refer your questions to HCA. I have already signed up for the class, however, and would hate to see it cancelled due to lack of interest. x
