£30 per hour, or Five Hours (10am-3pm) for just £120

– (weekdays only) –

My most popular course is the Five-Hour One-to-One session for £120. Probably because it’s the perfect length of time to give you a real sense of control over your camera and your photography.

I don’t know about you, but many of us are more visual and hands-on learners and prefer not to pore over manuals in minute detail. Manuals, by their nature, have to offer exhaustive and very dry information on aspects of the system that you may never even use. Sadly, this can put you off!

However, don’t despair. Naturally, I’ve been through that stage too – so, using plenty of photo examples, I try to boil things down to only what is useful to you personally, bringing you up to speed in no time on the basics of achieving great exposures with the least amount of fuss.

Firstly, although we start the session discussing your camera controls, to make sure you know how to achieve the shot you want, we don’t do it in the way your dull camera manual does! I give you a simple, logical system so you can approach every shot feeling prepared and in control.

Secondly, we go out and about to shoot pictures in the local area – luckily, I’m five minutes from the beautiful village of Painswick – so we can put into practice the techniques covered.

Thirdly, we get to think about artistic considerations. These include composition, quality of light, point of view, point of focus, choice of background, framing for impact, and more.

And finally, we return to work on some of your images in Lightroom, to give you a brief introduction to this industry-standard software and to show you what’s possible at the processing stage.

I want you to finish the session with a much better understanding of how to capture and refine images to be truly proud of.

Weekdays only

This Five Hour offer is valid for weekdays only, so you may need to book a day off work. We normally start at 10am and finish at 3pm. Please feel free to bring a packed lunch if you want to. I’ll provide the tea and coffee. Might I suggest a coffee – because our cappuccino machine is rather good.

Whatever your level, you should come away with a better understanding of your camera and how to take control of your image-making. You can ask as many questions as you need to! After all, it’s not a group session, and I’m not a franchise, so this is all about you and what you need to know.

Please see all the wonderful comments from previous trainees on my page Kind Words.

One-to-One Photo Training
Out and about

You don’t need to know anything about photography at all to join me for a day of One-to-One Photo Training. Of course, it’s fine if you know a little, or even a lot. But whatever you know, we can start where you want to start. There is always something I can teach you that will ‘up your game’ or give you a ‘lightbulb moment’ or two!

Don’t be shy, drop me a line! I’m easy to get along with and have helped many previous happy photographers. Needless to say, I think it’s a wonderful pastime and highly rewarding when you start to see great results!
