How Do The Sessions Work?
There are two ways I can tutor you and both work equally as well as each other depending upon your preference and location. If you are in Melbourne and prefer to have face-to-face tuition I can visit you at your home or workplace. If you are interstate or prefer to do your tuition via screen sharing this is a simple and effective option.

Online Photography And Photoshop Courses
Learning how to use your camera properly can be really intimidating. When you want it to capture an image the way you want you will need to use the manual functions. In the beginners course we start with the basics and in simple easy to follow tutorials, make this leap from the auto settings to the manual settings. You will be really surprised how you can understand these settings and start capturing images the way you want not the way the camera thinks you should.
