One to One Photography & Photoshop tuition

Private photography training is a great alternative to a course if you want to learn specific subjects, or perhaps you can't fit a course around your schedule. Taking a private lesson is the most efficient way of learning and in many ways more beneficial than a course as the student is allowed to work at their own pace and decide on the content. You can specify what parts of DSLR Photography or Photoshop you would like to learn or we can propose a private course based on your prior knowledge and level. We also offer classes in Studio Lighting, Adobe Lightroom, Web Design, Darkroom, DSLR Video and Video Editing.

Student Review

★★★★★ "I have been to this school for three courses now. The DSLR Standard and Advanced courses and a DSLR Film/Film Editing course. I learnt a lot from each of these courses, the camera course I did first off was probably the most stand out but that was because I learnt a lot quickly as I was starting from a ‘no knowledge’ base. The place is all open plan and has a kitchen area for refreshments and the people teaching are talented, stimulating and enjoyable to be around. The good thing is the course details often link to the teachers work and you can see if they are skilled in their field in ways that would be useful to what you need to get out of your course. I would thoroughly recommend this place." Wendy McGirr
