Personalized (1-to-1) and online (live) photography lessons via Zoom or Skype. Private photography lessons are fully customizable. What this means is; you have the option to decide whatever topic you want to learn. However, if necessary, I can recommend that you start with different topics. If you can not decide which topics you want to start with, we can always have a 30 min free of charge consultation over Skype or Zoom or via audio call.
For in-person lessons, your lesson can be anything from field work, operating your camera, focusing techniques, filters, reading and interpreting a scene, composition, asset management, post processing – and everything in between. Online lessons are a little different. Virtual learning is truly a wonder of our modern age. Never before has it been easier to directly connect teachers and students anywhere on the globe. However, I don’t think all photography topics are best served by online classes.

As you can see, there are many topics to learn. So, if you already know what topics you’d like to work on, that is perfect. If not; then book a free consultation with me and we can discuss and decide where to start together.
How does it work?
When you’re ready to setup a lesson with me, here’s what happens:
You book a block of lessons.
During booking, pick the duration of the lessons you want to take. (You can always contact me later as well).
I’ll reply via email (typically within 48 hours) and ask follow up questions, if any are needed.
Together, we will craft lessons around your needs, and set a date & time for our lesson.
Lesson time! We connect via Zoom or Skype, learn a bunch and have fun.
I will do my absolute best to teach you as much as possible during our time together. I want you to get the most value for your time and money.
