3 reasons to invest in photography & videography training for your business

Most people are visual learners. They pay attention to your images first. Having a ready supply of good quality images that convey the same message as your carefully crafted text will make your blog posts and social media updates more engaging.

Behind the scenes

Having a professional photographer or videographer on hand all the time isn’t feasible for most businesses. Being able to create your own photos and videos lets you share more of what’s happening behind the scenes, helping you build that important “know, like and trust” factor with potential clients

Linda Scannell


  • I’ve been writing and delivering training courses for well over 20 years.
  • My course participants tell me that I’m excellent at explaining complex technical information in an easy-to-understand way
  • I’m a professional photographer and videographer working with all sorts of businesses from sole traders to large corporates so I draw on my wealth of real world experience to design and deliver courses that are relevant to marketing your business today.


I attended Linda’s “Making business videos with your Smartphone” course, and can thoroughly recommend her: Linda’s style is relaxed and informative, while ensuring that she provides just the right amount of technical know-how. The supporting course papers are detailed and very helpful. I’m looking forward to developing my own suite of business videos as a result.

I have worked with Linda previously, when she took fantastic photos for a client advertising campaign. Today, however, I attended one of Linda’s courses “Photography for Busy Business People”. As well as being able to take brilliant photos herself, Linda is generous about sharing tips and techniques through her courses. For the first time ever I feel like I’m in with a chance of being able to take a decent picture to accompany my social media, or if I just need a quick shot for a client website. She managed to cover loads of information in just two hours (technical, composition, permissions etc) and pitch it perfectly. I’ll definitely continue to work with Linda when I need a proper shoot doing, but the course has given me the confidence that I can take the odd competent shot when a client needs one. And my holiday snaps this year are going to be a million times better than any previous ones too.

Linda came along to our charity’s office to deliver a workshop to ten people who undertake a variety of roles for the organisation. In an increasingly digital world, Cord requires more and more imagery of its work and on a very tight budget, we need our programmes and fundraising team members all to be more competent at taking photos to share with our supporters. Linda delivered a first class training workshop, helping all the participants understand how to get the most from their cameras, including iPhones, compact cameras and DSLRs. We got some great tips and everyone came away feeling more confident with taking pictures of Cord’s work. In addition, discussion around the legal aspects and consent was a really valuable element to the training and essential for any charity to be aware of.
