I have been travelling the world non-stop for two years now. Since then, my passion for travel has not only been something that I do, but it has been something that has become a part of me. Through my trips i discovered photography and through photography, teaching.

I realized teaching is one of the most rewarding things as you get to transmit your students what you love doing as well as sharing your experience, your knowledge and assist them in everything they might need.

Her lesson was really helpful and taught me few fundamental tricks and to know my camera potential better.
The meeting point was at the iconic Sydney harbour so it couldn’t have been a better practice spot.

That was a very good introduction class to photography. I now have a good understanding of the basics principles. Sofi took the time with me to make sure I understand how my camera works. She is passionate about photography and she appreciate teaching. I recommend a class with her.

Sophia really knows her stuff and explains the technical parts of Photography so it makes it simple to understand. Really liked the way she taught the basic principals and then put in all into practise using her Camera. Definitely recommend this course for anyone wanting to gain more from their pictures!

Sophia was amazing

She was patient and very knowledgeable

My partner and I had no idea what we were doing going into the lesson and by the end we understood how to take a great pic and use the camera to capture the light!

We didn’t feel silly asking the same questions twice as Sophia was such an engaging and helpful teacher
