... dedicated digital photography embracing the full potential of contemporary cameras and digital workflow
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.
Appointments are of either two, three or four hours duration and take place at your home, office or other prearranged location.
Costs are the same if you wish to share tuition with a partner, friend or relative, and you can also save money with a 3x3 Photography Tuition Course.
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.
With personal photography tuition (or with a partner/ friend), you get my full attention, and the lesson is tailored to your needs. I ensure your full understanding of the lesson content and how to put it all into practice - and you can ask lots of questions too!
