These regular weekly classes are for all ability levels and are tailored to the needs and talent level of its students. The content has a very heavy emphasis on practical work as this is by far the best way to learn a skill like photography! We regularly take field trips as well as arrange studio sessions so that students can experience a wide variety of styles of photography. I like to set weekly targets and projects to challenge my students and encourage them to think creatively. We also visit exhibitions of other photographers work.

Think you`re too old to learn a new hobby; no way.  Look at this study that was reported in 2013

So it could even do you some good!

 

To give you an idea of what to expect from the course, in Term 1 we look at camera controls;- get away from using Auto, discover what you can make your camera do, and what all the controls mean.

Composition;- how to produce photographs thay people will want to look at more than once.

Saving and storing your images, including different formats and why they are important.  Basic image manipulation; resizing, levelling and correcting convergence.

Projects and portfolio work can also be set to those who wish to create a physical collection of work. Themes for such projects taken by former students include self-portraiture, 5 ways with 1 item and a day in my life.

Cost: £120 per term.

Amazing value! This translates to £6 an hour for professional level and tailor made photography tutoring!

Private Classes:

Length of class decided with client – can range from a single 2 hour session, regular private lessons of any length or a full day masterclass.

Private classes are the perfect opportunity for personal study for individuals or groups. These sessions can be tailored to a specialist skill to suit your needs. It can also take place in the comfort of your own home, or can be arranged to take place at a public place if outdoor photography is more your style! These classes are perfect for those who can’t commit to regularly scheduled classes, or those who want a more personalised experience as and when needed. I am happy to work with any level, whether you’ve never taken a photograph before to those who are looking to become professional.

Cost: 2 hr private class: £50 for 1 student (+£30 for each extra student up to a total of 6. Classes of above 6 should contact me directly for a quote.)

Classes that are longer than 2 hrs will be priced on a case by case basis once I know more about your requirements and number of students. Feel free to contact me for a quote!

(These prices are based on the students providing a venue, I am happy to come to your home! If you would like me to arrange a venue there may be extra costs incurred to cover venue hire.)
