Have you got a camera that's sitting on a shelf somewhere gathering dust? Is your camera stuck on AUTO but you want to shoot in MANUAL? Does your website or your social media stream desperately need updating with some quality visual content? Does your budget mean that you can't hire a professional to provide you with the photographic images you want? If this sounds familiar to you or your organisation, book a Personal Photography Workshop and learn to do it yourself. Call +44 (0)7796 884 373 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Photography Training Workshops will provide you with the understanding of how your camera works and the confidence to use it creatively. While this is aimed at DSLR users, personal tuition and group workshops will also be suitable for owners of Bridge cameras, and even include tips for smartphones and tablets.

Personal Tuition Details
Personal tuition sessions are relaxed, informal and above all fun, as they are tailored to your experience level and interests. They normally start over a coffee while you learn how your camera works, followed by a couple of hours putting it all in to practice in a central London location, see details below.
Personal tuition will make you will feel confident in using your camera and ready to create your own stunning images.
Personal tuition is suitable for individuals or small groups, but in order to get the most out of a session, groups are limited in size to no more than four people. For larger groups, please get in contact.
Sessions start at 1000 and last three hours
As personal tuition sessions are tailored to your needs and interests, locations can vary. Unless specific locations are requested, sessions will be held either along the South Bank area of the Thames between Waterloo and Tate Modern or within the City, anywhere from Tower Hill to Brick Lane, Leadenhall Market or the area around the Royal Exchange. Other popular locations include London Bridge and Borough Market or Kings Cross and St. Pancras.
For specific meeting points, please get in touch.
Payment must be made in full in advance.
All workshop participants must bring a Digital SLR or bridge camera capable of shooting in full manual mode. If required I can provide rental cameras (Nikon D3200 with 18-55mm lens or similar) for an additional cost of £45.00 each.
Capture One Tuition
I use Capture One Pro for my workflow as I find it is by far the best post processing software on the market. If you are unfamiliar with this software, a free 30 day trial can be downloaded here. I am able to provide an introduction to Capture One workshop as a personal tuition session for 1-2 people. Sessions take place either at clients' home or office or in a cafe location in central London.
