Personal 1-2-1 Photography Training
It's just you and me - so everything is relevant to you
Everyone is at different levels and like different genres of photography, so there is no set itinerary and all levels are welcome. Your private photography training will go at the right pace for you and concentrate only on your needs, skills and confidence.
If you're new to this, no worries about being left behind or slowing others down. And if you're already seasoned, you expertise won't be held back.
Expect to acquire fresh skills, enhance your current ones, deepen your comprehension, and foster innovative approaches to harnessing photographic techniques.
What would you work on?
- Camera controls and settings
- Composition & light
- Which lens to use
- Finding images
- Decisive moments
- Thinking like a photographer (as opposed to just someone with a camera)
- File management
- Post production
- Confidence ...
Whatever you want to improve, please ask...
What to expect
I ask you to bring five images you're delighted with, and five you're unsure why they didn't meet expectations. These are really important because they tell me what we need to work on most. You can ask me anything and I'll help you work through issues you're currently stuck on.
I'll set practical tasks for you, ask you questions that'll make you think about what you're doing - and help you find answers that'll lead to your desired outcome.
I want you to leave with new insights and feeling confident - rather than a few nice photos you don't know how to repeat.
There's little value in me pointing out pretty pictures and just telling you what settings to use. I want you to get some great images, but as your private photo trainer my priority is to help you find solutions and achieve what you want from an image.
I ask for a non-refundable deposit payment. Once we have set a mutually convenient date I'll send you an invoice for the balance payment which will be due 2 weeks before the 121 day.
Where we do it
Basically it's your choice, though beyond 50 miles of Ringwood, Hampshire, UK may incur additional cost. We can discuss it when you book.
We have the New Forest and its cattle and wild ponies, the sea, boats, two major towns near-by if 'urban' is your thing...
