Information About Personal Tuition
I also offer one-on-one tuition in both photography and Photoshop. No matter whether you're a complete beginner with a point-and-snap camera or a professional photographer, there'll be things I can teach you. I also offer on-site consulting, helping you with your own photo shoot in whatever areas you would like guidance.
All tuition is interactive and completely tailored to your needs. You can book a single session or several, to build your skills over time.
I have extensive experience with Adobe Photoshop, and as well as answering your questions, I can walk you through the process I use myself when retouching images from a shoot. We can cover airbrushing, removing blemishes, selective brightening, slimming, changing colours, selection, actions, layers, batch processing, black and white variations, sepia, etc., and whatever else you want to know.
I can also coach you in photography itself. This can include explaining camera settings (aperture, exposure, shutter speed), using studio lights, different lighting setups, shooting on location, finding models, working with a model/team, posing models, etc. Together we will decide which areas to work on to improve your photography the fastest.
If you're doing a photo shoot and you want me on hand to advise, my rates are the same as for tuition. I can offer as much or as little guidance as you would like, and help with all aspects of the shoot, from the lighting, to the posing, to the interaction with the model. Alternatively, if you're not planning a shoot but would like to try one at my studio, I can arrange the hire of a model and makeup artist and give you all the guidance you need to get you confident doing photo shoots. Contact me with what you have in mind and I'll quote you a price.
What does it cost?
Currently I only charge £60 per hour, with a minimum of two hours per session. Sessions are normally two or three hours.
What Happens Next
Email me saying you're interested in tuition or consulting and explain a little about what you want. You can then come to my studio in Ealing (West London), where we can work on Photoshop, studio lighting, or whatever. I can also come to you or work on location - tell me what you have in mind.
I look forward to working with you!
