What will I learn?

You will be able to learn a whole range of skills suited to your own individual needs to help you improve an build on your existing knowledge and understanding. All lessons take place on the Isle of Wight, and the locations can be arranged to your needs. The Isle of Wight is a perfect location for Landscape photography, but a range of other genres such as portraiture or still life can be accommodated as required.

A few of the things that you’re able to learn are;

  • Basic camera operations
  • Composition and image building
  • Long exposure photography
  • Editing & Evaluation
  • Post processing
  • Using off camera flash & lighting
  • Photographic theory

A Typical Lesson

A typical lesson would start with a review of your past photography, so we can build on your current knowledge and identify any areas for improvement. If you want to learn a specific skill, i.e. the use of flash, composition, or camera basics, then we can start from there.

We will then work though improving your skills with lots of practical work, letting you try new things and evaluating the results.

Finally, you will put what you’ve learnt into practice and produce some images which we can then critique, allowing you to combine everything you’ve learnt in the session.

Lessons are run in small groups of three or fewer, or individually so that you can get the maximum out of them and a more personalised lesson.

What this covers
This is for small introductory lessons, or to help learn the basics of camera controls or composition.
This would be enough time to cover one or two things and put them into practice. This can be a morning or afternoon, and would last approximately three to four hours.
Full day
A full day will allow you cover many different things in depth and try out new techniques, or travel two a couple of different locations. Lunch is not included, but a pub lunch can be factored in depending on the location! This would be around six to eight hours, but can be spread over two days, i.e. two afternoons.
