Online Personalised Tutorials

We provide online tutorials in a one-on-one format, or small group format (up to 7) for you and your friends, family or colleagues. These are conducted via Zoom or Skype or teleconference, so geography no longer matters. We prefer these small formats over large group or mass media formats, such as  Youtube, because they are highly personalised. These formats are closer to mentoring or master-apprentice models of the past, and so are better suited to the development of artistic knowledge, skills and sensibilities. In particular-

  • Your specific needs can be met, notwithstanding your level of experience.

  • Your particular interests and genres can be looked at.

  • You can ask questions and receive specific answers and insights tailored to you.

  • You can begin to find your particular voice, style and focus on the themes you are interested in.

  • We also include free, an evaluation of up to five of your works. 

Flexible Higher Level Learning

We generally provide only a little structure to our hourly sessions. Instead we prefer to let you drive the direction, content and scope. We strive for flexible higher level learning, here are just some of the common questions and areas we cover-

 

  • Technicals. How can I easily understand the key technicals of photography to create a working template or system to easily apply?

  • Equipment. What is the essential photographic equipment I should buy and why? How can I do this affordably?

  • Genres. What are the key styles or genres of photography, and which should I focus on?

  • Post Production. What are some of the key Photoshop or Post Production techniques I should master?

  • Composition. How to I compose using and then breaking the compositional rules of photography and art?

  • Style. How do I begin to find a new or special style? Do I need a style at all?

  • Voice. How do I find my unique voice, drawing on my personal journey in life?

  • Higher Levels. How do I elevate my work to higher artistic levels, so I can find greater meaning, and deeply engage with my audience?

  • Narrative. How can I use narrative in my work?

  • Metaphor. How can I use metaphor in my work, and find higher poetic layers?

  • Well-Being. How can the arts, photography and creativity assist mental well-being? How can creativity heal, broaden consciousness, and empower the mind? 

  • Masters. Who are some of the masters of photography and art? What can I learn from them, and how can they inspire my work?

  • History. What are some of the important or relevant areas to me of Art History, including the history of Fine Art Photography? How can they help me develop my work, perhaps to break new ground?

 

 

Experience and Creatness

 

We have been teaching for many years now, and cover all levels of experience- from novices to professional photographers and artists. We also teach to those outside the arts, and have found our clients come from many walks of life, ranging from other teachers, trades to professionals and business people. Over the years we have found our clients returning many times, to continue to develop their knowledge, voice and creativity. Accessing and integrating the power of the higher creative mind we call Creatness. Creatness has become a golden thread running through all of our work.
