One to One Private Tuition

Some people just love face to face learning rather than on-line learning or learning through reading.  For those who do, one of my One to One sessions might be a solution.  I have a number of years of experience in providing one to one private tuition and running residential workshops at West Dean College in Sussex.

Photographs are not taken by cameras, they are made by you, the photographer. A photograph is the result of a number of decisions you, the photographer, make before you press the shutter release.

The challenge is to visualise what the final output, usually a print or image on a computer monitor, will look like. This final output is your interpretation of the subject that can sometimes be somewhat different from reality.  What is more, how a camera records a scene is not the same as how a human sees it.  This means that even before pressing the shutter you need to think about how you might edit photos in image editing applications such as Adobe Lightroom or Adobe Photoshop.

If your situation is one or more of the following, my One to One, 1 day or two half days private tuition sessions are ideal as they can be tailored to suit your requirements.


- You are just starting your journey of photography and therefore would  like a bit of a helping hand.

- You would like to take control of your camera: aperture, shutter speed, ISO, etc.

- You have been taking photographs for a while and have a basic understanding of photography, but would like to take it to the next level.

- You have never used Adobe Lightroom or Adobe Photoshop but you are interested in finding out what they can offer.

- You subscribe to Lightroom CC or have Lightroom stand alone version, but you would like to know more about how to use it.

A ½ day session:  £90 (approx 4 hours)

A full day session: £180 (approx 6 hours tuition and 1 hour for lunch. Winter sessions or if interrupted by bad weather may be slightly shorter)

Two to One* ½ day sessions: £162 (after 10% discount)  *The basic set up is One 2 One but if you would like to bring a like-minded friend or a family member.  You will both get a 10% discount.

If travelling time is not an issue, I recommend 2 half day sessions because a full day can be physically and mentally demanding. Splitting the day also provides an opportunity for reflection between sessions.
