1-2-1 Training

1-2-1 Training

  • Are you new to Lightroom?
  • Can’t get the answers you want from Youtube or your books?
  • Need inspiring? 
  • Can’t get your lighting right?

Taking time to listen and watch how you currently work is the foundation of our 1-2-1 training – we find that going right back to basics solves so many issues.

We’ve helped people who’ve “lost” photos in lightroom learn how to structure their image library effectively so they no longer get frustrated looking!

We’ve taught people 1 light, 2 light and even 3 light “strobist” set ups in a day.

We’ve taken people from using full auto to understanding Aperture/Shutterspeed and exposure in an afternoon

You decide what you’d like to achieve and give you 100% of our attention to make it happen.

Here are a few ideas…

  • Absolute beginners – we’ll show you around your camera’s settings and show you what they do. Then we’ll show you some easy tips on the subject you’re interested in
  • Experienced – need to brush up on some aspects, or learn something new like “Off Camera Flash” – we can help!
  • Expert – we can organise shoots in cool locations, coach you on new techniques and show you effective workflows to make you more effective.
