Photographic and Photoshop Tuition_1050947

Professional but friendly we offer a very personalised service to suit everyone from complete beginners to advanced workers. Learning on a 1:1 basis might seem a little extravagant at the outset but in the long term is far more productive and cost efficient. Our short course packages come highly recommended and are great value for money.

Whether you are new to photography or looking to improve your skills we can tailor a programme to meet your needs and expectations, based on tuition in photographic/camera skills or image processing in Adobe Photoshop or Elements, or any combination of these._1050947-Edit

Learn how to improve your composition, use the aperture setting to create images with blurred backgrounds, take control of shutter speeds when photographing moving objects, learn how to get to grips with layers in Photoshop…..and more, naturally.

With over 15 years experience in teaching, a real passion for photography and Photoshop, hopefully my love of the subject will shine through. My aim is for you to leave with the enthusiasm to take photography that little step further and give you the confidence to experiment with Photoshop. It might seem like a daunting program at the start, but learn a few basic techniques and the complexities will soon disappear!

I am very patient what ever your skill level and aim to explain in a manner and speed that is suitable for you. Clients with learning difficulties and disabilities are also warmly welcomed.

Tuition can either take place in our garden studio, the indoor office or take the lesson in the comfort of your own home using your own trusty and familiar equipment.

  • Do you want to be able to blur the backgrounds on photographs of people?

I offer 1-to-1 training in camera skills, Photoshop and Lightroom from beginner to advanced.

For those new to photography we would recommend a programme of five two-hour sessions, which would be tailored to meet your needs. For more experienced photographers looking to improve on specific aspects we would suggest a half or full day workshop..
