Beginners Photography Workshop

Learn the basics of photography to give you greater control creating your images.

2 hours 1 on 1 label $150 - $200 ($200 per person when you book for 1 student, $150 pp for 2+ students)

Get off your camera's Auto mode and experience its full potential in your own home, location you choose or a photographically appropriate one suggested by me.

Are you a beginner and want to learn how to use your camera with greater control by you? Whether it’s blurring or freezing a moving subject (Shutter Speed), capturing a sharp subject and blurring the rest of your image (Aperture), choosing the colour ‘filter’ of your image (White Balance), understanding image quality or overriding your camera’s Auto mode - this class will start from the ground up and build your confidence in a one on one practical teaching environment.

If your camera has Manual settings (S/A/M or Tv/Av/M) and is a DSLR or Mirrorless then this is the course that will help you transform that creative photo idea from your mind into a photo.

Whatever your level of experience i will help you take your photography further, tailored to your personal needs.

Was a raining cold day, but you didn’t notice as the workshop was informative and interesting. The technical side was explained very well and he was happy to go over anything that was not sinking in. Left with an enthusiasm for testing out my new found knowledge.

I had a great time with Glenn during my photography class in Sydney, he was so lovely to work with and incredibly patient with me throughout the entire time I spent with him. He also has a great sense of humour which goes a long way with me! He made me feel calm and relaxed and had no issue repeating things for me and was happy to explain bits and pieces in various ways so I could really understand and wrap my head around things. I had a four hour session learning both how to use my camera and a run through of how to use Adobe bridge and Lightroom to get the most out of my business. I will be booking in to see him again next time I'm in Sydney for sure. Thanks again, Glenn!

Regards, Hailey.

Great 1on1 session. Really helped me to consolidate my understanding of the manual modes of my camera and has given me the confidence to push my photography harder.

Thanks heaps Glenn

Glenn is a great theoretical and practical photographer. I had a 2 hour lesson where he helped me to understand my complex camera whose controls were previously overwhelming. I would recommend his considerable skills to anyone who wants to be a better photographer.
