1:1 Photography Tuition
I offer photography tuition for beginner photographers.
If you have a DSLR camera or are thinking of investing but would like to help to develop your technical and creative photography skills, 1:1 sessions may be just what you're after. I can also help you to get to grips with your smartphone camera. Sessions are relaxed, informal and practical.
* I also have a certificate in Adult Education & Training (Highfield Level 3)
1:1 sessions are £35 per hour and tailored to your level of skills and interests. We chat about what you would like from the tutorials and I build a package to suit your needs.
You may book several hours together, although I would suggest separating them to give you time to practise your skills in between.
If you'd like to bring a friend, a session for two people is £30 per person per hour.
Here are some lovely words from one of my students:
1. What did you learn / gain from the tutorials?
I have gained many new skills whilst being taught by Ginny; the ability to now use my camera on manual means that I am now in control and can take photos that I want to take instead of my camera always being on auto. Now knowing ISO, Aperture and Shutter Speed has allowed me to experiment with light and different angles - which has given me a new style that I definitely want to explore. As well, I have gained the confidence, with the help of Ginny, to explore further aspects of photography; such as self-portraits, editing in Adobe Lightroom and going out in public to take photos.
2. How did the sessions help you to learn? Which activities / ways of learning were most helpful?
I really found Ginny's style of teaching very helpful, a majority of our lessons were very much practical which I found extremely useful as I'm a visual learner. We went to different environments that challenged both of us and had fun tasks to complete using a set of cards with descriptions of what to take. This really helped develop my photography eye and comparing photos at the end of the session meant that we were able to constructively critique each others photos.
3. What could be improved about the sessions? Any suggestions?
I absolutely enjoyed these lessons with Ginny, she is an amazing teacher and an extremely talented photographer. Since these lessons were very short noticed, she was able to quickly build a timetable compacted with key and necessary lessons for me. She made me extremely comfortable and was very adaptable with my needs.
4. Did the sessions meet your personal photography goals?
These sessions have given me the ability and confidence to pursue my photography interests further, I feel like I'm able to navigate through my camera's settings and really challenge myself to take photos from a different perspective. Throughout these lessons, I have grown in myself and it has given me a passion for photography that will last a lifetime.
5. Would you recommend the sessions to a friend / family member?
