The majority of my knowledge and experience is in landscape, nature, travel, objective abstract and architectural photography, but I also cover other genres including portraiture and studio photography.

My tuition comprises of patient and attentive guidance, illustration and answers to your questions.
Whatever your experience, I prioritise your potential creativity and helping you to take better photos; I don't dwell on technicalities that won't improve your photography.
