Beginners’ Guide to Photography
Teaching you how to master your camera and start taking photos like a Pro.
Are you frustrated with your photography?
Have you bought an SLR camera to take better photos but it's not as easy as you thought?
Are you feeling overwhelmed and ready to go back to your phone camera?
… You’re not alone!
If I had a pound for every time someone told me that, I’d be a rich man!
Unfortunately a Digital SLR camera isn’t like a point and shoot camera, it’s an advanced piece of kit that will take amazing photos but you need to learn how to use it.
My lad has a bass guitar and I picked it up yesterday thinking I could get something out if it… I couldn’t!
I can help!
If you let me I’d love to be your photography coach.
You’ll realise from the sample videos below that I have a laid back and easy approach to my training. I’ve deliberately recorded this as if you’re sitting in one of my Photography Workshops. I follow the exact pattern of my training day and give you opportunity to feedback at every step.
This really isn’t scary, you CAN do it, and you WILL be taking great photos by the end, I promise!
What’s holding you back?
Chances are this isn’t the first course you’ve looked at yet you’re here. What’s stopped you taking action so far?
Can’t you decide on the right course?
Do you doubt your ability?
Are you struggling for time?
Ultimately there’s just one question you need to answer...
‘How badly do you want to start taking real photos?
This is a big deal, I get it, photos are extremely valuable. When you take a photo you are capturing a memory, when you capture it WELL you're a hero!
Give me about 8 hours of your time and I'll explain all you need to know about your camera and tell you what settings you need to be on in various situations. More importantly I'll teach you how to think like a photographer so you aren't looking for the 'how to' guide, you're just exercising what you've learnt.
Does that sound exciting?
Once you know how to master your camera we can look at composition and the things to consider on a shoot but that's going to be no good to you if you don't have confidence with your camera first.
So, over to you... are you ready to become a photographer?
I'm one of those lucky guys who gets to do his hobby for a living, and have been doing so for the past 15 years!
I'm the friend you go to when you want some advice and honestly, I feel my happiest and most fulfilled when I'm helping others 'get it' with their photography. This is so much more than a hobby, it's a way to capture moments in time that we'd otherwise forget.
I want my kids to enjoy memories and share them with their kids one day. That's my motivation.
If I can help YOU gain confidence with your photography so you enjoy it and start taking lovely photos fit for hanging on your walls or printing in books, well I think I'll have done something good with my life.
