As digital cameras open up the wonderful world of photography to more and more people I am being approached regularly to give personalised, ‘one-to-one’ tuition to photographers keen to develop their skills.
It may be you don’t like the thought of the group learning experience of a workshop or you feel you want concentrated attention helping you with your exact needs. The customers I have for one-to-one sessions often comment how much their photography skills progress in just a few hours of dedicated tuition.
To quote a recent student of mine;
Just a quick note to say a big thank you for yesterday. It was absolutely fantastic as I learnt & enjoyed it so much. The icing on the cake was the brilliant prints that you did me for me
With personalised tuition I work closely with you to identify exactly what areas you want to progress in, be it basic camera operation using filters, mastering exposure, honing your composition skills, or developing creative photographic skills or it can be a combination of any of these topics. We work at a location of your choice, from a day to several days – again, the choice is yours.
I work at your pace and target the training at your level, whether you are just getting started in photography right through to professionals wanting to learn some new skills. You choose the locations and the skills you want to learn or develop – it really is your time.
Or if you just want company and a guide to locations based on my intimate knowledge of them combined with some instruction, I am happy to provide that. I have detailed knowledge built up over years of visiting most photographic locations in the UK and further afield which I am happy to share with you.
The following prices are based on providing tuition within an hour of my home in North Nottinghamshire. If you wish me to travel further I calculate my expenses at £35 per hour for each extra hour (and pro rata on part hours) travelling time each way as a contribution to my time, fuel and other expenses and will fix this amount firmly for you on booking once I know the location. (So 1 hours travelling each way is included in my day rate, I charge for the travelling time over and above this each way – so, for example, if I have to travel for three hours each way, six hours in total, I will charge for four hours travelling at £35 per hour = £140 over an above my day rate). If I require an overnight stay and evening meal in a hotel/B&B these will be charged at cost.
Full Day (Week Day) for one person (about 8 hours tuition) – £600
Full Day (Saturday) for one person (about 8 hours tuition) – £875
If you would like to team up with a friend or friends for a bespoke day I charge the following;
Full day (Week Day) for two people – £375 per person
Full day (Week Day) for three people – £300 per person
Full day (Week Day) for four people – £250 per person
Full day (Saturday) for two people – £600 per person
Full day (Saturday) for three people – £450 per person
Full day (Saturday) for four people – £375 per person
Please note, I am not available for bookings on Sundays.
If you book me for a full days tuition, I pay for breakfast or lunch included in the fee. If you would like to spread the cost over interest free monthly payments, please just ask at the time of booking and we are happy to organise your invoice in this way.
If you have been given one of my gift certificates these can be redeemed against the cost of personalised tuition or a group workshop.
I am also available to provide bespoke training workshops for photographic societies and groups. This can be tied in with a talk in the evening to your group as part of the session. Please drop me an email for a quote and to discuss your needs.
