Lots of you had cameras for Christmas and are getting in touch about having some one to one training. It's really great that so many people are taking time for themselves to start doing something they love. Photography is great as you can lose yourself for hours and be as creative as you like.
Taking the time out to learn something new and have a little "you" time is great for many good reasons - as well as learning something new and achieving new things in the New Year, which always makes us feel better about ourselves, I truly believe it is good for the soul and good for ones mental health.
It takes you away from your everyday routine and gets you thinking about something completely different - even if it's just for an hour or two. If you can get out in the fresh air with your camera too then this is even better, fresh air added into the equation adds to make you feel so much better about yourself and your day.
When I start teaching somebody new, we start at the very beginning, I like to see how you use your camera, how do you frame images, how do you show people what you are capturing, once I can see where you're at then we can make a plan to get you moving forward and achieving all of the things that you want to be able to do.
Whether landscapes are your thing, or you want to tackle night time photography or macro photography, all you have to do is let me know what your long term goal is - if you have one and we can head towards it, if you want to learn just as much as possible then we can set some goals for that too. Most people find a whole day can be too much and like to do half days (3.5hrs), so they can learn new things and practice what they have learnt and then we meet up a few weeks later and I can see your progress and we tackle some more new challenges.
The whole idea though is that I make it as fun as possible for you, we do not sit at a desk writing things out, we use your camera and you can make notes as we go along, but you are learning by taking photos. We may sit at my laptop to see how the photos look from time to time, but then we are back off photographing again :-)
Escaping the world and enjoying a new hobby or potential new business is a marvellous way to spend a day or a half day.
I can cover whatever topics you wish, including how to make money from image libraries if this is something you are interested in.
