Who the course is designed for

If you are new or experienced with digital photography, this course will teach you more than just the basics to become proficient with your camera and to improve your technique.

This two-day imagery course is primarily designed for investigators and enforcement officers who use digital SLR, mirrorless and video cameras in order to obtain photographic evidence.

Many investigators often fall into the trap of obtaining photographic images or video which are of poor quality and of little evidential value. Unfamiliarity of the equipment, incorrect exposure, blur, camera shake, poor focus and lack of experience causes many problems.

If you have the Level 4 Award in Covert Surveillance Operations and are wishing to ‘up skill’ to the Level 4 Certificate, this training qualifies you to pass Unit 9, Unit 10 and part of Unit 12.
