1-2-1 tuition is the fastest and most effective way of improving your photography.
People have different makes and models of cameras, different levels of experience and different goals and aspirations. Reading instructional articles and watching video tutorials are helpful but can’t replace hands on tuition.
Michael teaches students from beginners upwards. From people who have just bought their first camera to take better photos, intermediates striving for the next level, to professionals wanting to up their game.
If you want to improve your photography then he can help you.
Well you’re in luck because neither does Michael.
He has been teaching photography for over 6 years now and is passionate about helping people reach their goals. Michael has a unique way of explaining the technical side of photography that is simple to understand, easy to implement and very effective. He can teach you all about practical photography without you needing a PhD in Quantum Mechanics.
Pretty much anything you want.
Michael covers almost every genre you might want to do in photography – portraiture, still life, studio, photography, natural light photography, fashion photography, landscape, nature, artistic, product photography, travel photography.
Every student is treated as an individual and Michael’s goal is always to tailor your learning outcomes that best suit you and to turn you into the best photographer that you can be.
If you’re a beginner we can teach you the basics, get you to understand how your camera works, understand exposure, get you off the Auto mode, help you start with some simple photo editing. In no time at all you’ll be in control and taking creative photographs.
If you’re at an intermediate level we can help you get to the next level. You can hone your skills, learn new more advanced techniques, learn how to get the best from your images using post-processing, develop your style, set and achieve new goals. Maybe you’re considering turning pro? Michael can put you on the right track.
If you’re at this level it can still be easy to get in a rut – you may be needing a fresh direction, new inspiration, to widen your skill set, need business advice, a portfolio review.
Michael can help you add extra sparkle to your work, re-define you as a photographer, advise you on business and marketing and put photographic fire in your belly!
It’s really very simple – just choose the amount of tuition you’d like to have, pay via the Paypal link and then contact Michael to book in your session/s.
It’s very flexible too. You can purchase just one hour if you like (handy if perhaps you’re just wanting help with one issue), but when you book longer periods you can split them up into blocks that suit you. For example if you book 6 hours tuition you can split it up into 6 x 1hr sessions, 3 x 2hr sessions, 2 x 3hr sessions or even 1 x 6 hour session.
Michael will advise you on the best course of action for these sessions to maximise the effect on your photography.
