Tailored One to One Training

Our One-to-One training covers ONLY the areas relevant to your needs.

This kind of training is ideal for companies who wish to bring their photography in-house, and for those wishing to start up their own photography business. This can be camera or software related or both; you decide.

Recent sessions have included preparing a client for a once in a life trip to on a photo safari to Namibia, and included getting her up to speed on her 2 new Nikon full frame cameras, setting up Lightroom Mobile on her phone and iPad, and getting all her devices talking to each other allowing for easier sharing of her images. Another session was exclusively for a blogger concerned that her images were not uploading at the quality she desired. Our session involved going through all the appropriate steps on Photoshop Elements, while also tracking down a new change in Wordpress that uses excessive compression on Jpeg images, and finding a way to prevent that.

Advice on equipment and software purchases can also be supplied. Half day sessions are available in your own office or home and up to four people can attend these training sessions. Rates start at €200 per quarter day. Click here for more information.

 
 
The Final Word…

You only get better by taking your camera out more often!

There is one very simple rule in photography, to get better you need to take more pictures. Ansel Adams famously said that your first 10,000 negatives are the worst, but to get past that you need to shoot more, and more often. You do not improve your photography by staring at the camera bag at the bottom of your wardrobe.

With that in mind an ex-student of ours, Cathy Weatherston came to us for support with a daytime photowalk she is running next Saturday in Dublin (October 1st).

Dave McKane, Principal of the Institute of Photography  
 

Not only are we happy to help her in this great endeavour, he will be tagging along to offer hints and tips to everyone who attends. The event starts at 2pm and registration is a requirement. Details on the Facebook Event page here. No previous experience is necessary, and cameras of all kinds are welcome, even phones!

Happy shooting!
