Photography training
Topic One

Photography foundations

It is best to get things right at the point of taking the photo rather than trying to relying on “fixing” the image later. We will teach you the foundations of photography so you can master the elements at the point of shooting.

Topic Two

The do’s & dont’s of editing

Editing your images correctly will always provide you with a far more engaging and professional photograph, but there are pitfalls to avoid. We will take you through the right way to edit in mobile applications without destroying your image.

Topic Three

Getting Attention

Build it and they will come.. yeah, nah. Social media is a busy and loud environment, we will let you know how best to build an engaged audience of peers and fans. We will take you through tips on generating traction through the two biggest platforms, Instagram and Facebook.

Topic Four

Professional Printing

Photography was built on the art of producing a beautiful print. Although in the modern adaptation of the industry, printing has taken a back seat to the mecca of social media and digital sharing. There is still no better feeling than seeing your photography printed large. We will show you how to print a 30″ photographic print of your photography and make it saleable.

Topic Five

Want to make some money from your photography? For those that are interested, we will breifly walk you through how to price your work. We will also chat about the best channels to promote and sell your work.
