That said some students will and do want the "technical knoledge' also, we can of course tailor out courses to meet your needs exactly.

$40 per hour tuition and yes all one on one! You pay as you learn, availabity is during the day - weekdays, some weekends and evenings - it will involve actual shooting.
ONE - we will have a quick look at the camera, help you understand more about how it works, what all the different lenses do, talk about capture, CF and SD cards, but most importantly lets get out shooting where you will learn very quickly about the art of focus, focus and focus to create sharp images. Depth of field and ISO settings will be a big part of this module.

THREE - you will have a very good understanding of how to take the same picture with different settings and your focusing will be 'bang on', but this module is all about composition, making sure the subject is framed correctly, understanding body positions and learning the art of communication, communication is one of the biggest parts of a photographers job. We will also be talking about landscape photography.
STUDIO photography - this module has been designed for people wanting to learn studio photography, we are able to set up a full studio here with professional lights and shoot whatever you want to shoot, from people to food.
Post PROCESSING - an enormous part of a photographers job. We often edit for as long as we are shooting, post processing is what we classify as 'finishing our work'. We are experts with Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop and Bridge. We have been fully digital since 2003, so we were very quick to change from film. We have an enormous amount of knowledge regarding computer design and set up plus educating people about the necessity for backing up ALL your work.
