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.
