There is a huge difference between 'telling' and 'teaching'.
Anyone can stand in front of a group and simply repeat all the information that is already available to you, (there are 1000’s internet sites and books already written about photography). This is not teaching!! Anyone can hand out notes to students about every aspect of photography. This is not teaching. I will tell you - then I will show you. Then I can teach you. You will learn photography. You will understand what makes a 'Great Photo'
I was like you once...
a great camera, and no idea how to use it to its full capabilities.
When I purchased my first SLR (an Olympus OM-10) I told the salesperson that I did NOT want to know about all the F-numbers and settings - I wanted a fully automatic camera. The Salesperson politely said "When you are ready to start taking better photos, you can get a Manual Adapter to over-ride the camera's AUTO settings".
Photography Courses, Camera Courses & Training
With over 20 years experience in photography, Photoshop and teaching, I will share with you the skills you need to achieve the results you want.
With a combination of theory ("what and why") and practical sessions (“when and how"), the learning process is greatly enhanced and also more enjoyable. Each photography class will be structured to your personal requirements and skill level.
IF YOU HAVE BEEN USING YOUR CAMERA FOR A WHILE, BUT...
you realise there is much more than ‘Auto’ or ‘Program’ Modes
and you know your camera can do much more than just be used to ‘take a picture’, or you’re not sure where to start with apertures and shutters, then the ‘Beyond the Basics’ Course is just what you need.
IF YOU CAN TELL ME THE
common apertures and shutter speeds
and can explain their effects, and understand their reciprosity, how to use exposure compensation, and an understanding of basic flash use, then you are ready for the Advanced Course.
IF YOU UNDERSTAND YOUR CAMERAS FUNCTIONS AND THE PRINCIPLES OF EXPOSURE
a Photography Workshop, may be what you need to hone your skills further
with the emphasis on a particular subject, such as Sunrises, Sunsets, or Model Photography.
Cooking and Photography are the same.
I like to equate cooking to photography. A Chef uses an oven and knives. A photographer uses a camera and lenses. However, being a Master Chef isn’t dependent on the brand or size of oven, and being a Master Photographer isn’t dependent on the brand or megapixels of the camera. The oven and the camera are only tools…..A Chef must source the right ingredients, prepare and cook them to perfection, then know how to present the final product to the customer.
