I offer individual TUITION for those keen to learn the amazing skill of photography.
If you are new and wanting to know what all the buttons, dials and numbers are for, or looking to expand your photography knowledge, please read on and get in touch with any questions you may have.
Having someone on hand to guide you as you learn a new skill is the best way. How best to shoot different subjects and the importance of seeing what we are looking at in terms of light and how best to set the exposure are all areas that can make up your individual tuition.
How best to compose various images is another area that can be included in your tuition and will greatly improve your ability to capture your images successfully.
If you have a love for photography and would like to take it further, I would welcome the opportunity to help you continue with your learning and enjoyment of your photography.
My tuition is also available to book by those who have previous experience, but would like a refresh.
Please contact me with what help you would like with your photography - including buying your first or next camera or a new lens!
BASICS OF PHOTOGRAPHY

Therefore, for those completely new to photography we start with an introduction of your camera and lenses, along with basic set-up and handing before the technical theory and practice begins.

"I cannot praise Sally's personal tuition course highly enough - I learned a huge amount in my 5 sessions including: theoretical aspects of photography. I now feel that I have the confidence to develop photography as a serious hobby. If you have an interest in photography but feel daunted by the complexities of your camera and want to develop some theoretical knowledge, then I can highly recommend booking tuition with Sally"
