Our 1-2-1 days start at 9.30am and run through to 4.30pm. We undertake a short chat to find out were you are with your photography and plan the day so that you get the most out of your time, then we head out on location to practice technique. The days typically consist of time spent running through camera functions, discussing composition techniques and using image manipulation techniques to enhance your images. We cover all types of cameras from compacts to DSLR’s and we can also provide information on equipment and software together with links to some useful websites to help you improve your photography.
