One-on-One Tuition


1 Hour, Half Day, Full Day and Night Sky sessions available

One-on-One Tuition is especially for those who have made the move to a Digital SLR (or mirrorless) camera and need a little help “losing the training wheels”. At a mutually convenient time and location (within Hobart) discuss any and all aspects of your camera, your photography and your digital workflow (including post processing techniques) in a relaxed one on one environment.

One hour sessions will generally be held in a cafe in central Hobart, or similar.

Half or Full Day Tuition can be scheduled in any location, at any time, of your choice (within Hobart), suggestions include:

  • Sunsets & Sunrise Photography Tips: there are many beautiful locations we can utilise such as: Mt Wellington, Hobart Waterfront, Bellerive.
  • Improve your waterfalls and rainforest photography, on the slopes of Mt Wellington.
  • Tips on Macro Photography: The Hobart Botanic Gardens is a perfect location to get up close and personal with hundreds of varieties of flowers.
  • “Classroom” Setting: You may prefer to have an indoor session devoted entirely to any particular aspect/s of photography that you need advice on.

Topics to discuss in any of these sessions include (but are not limited to): Manual Settings, ISO, composition, post-processing, filters & accessories and so on.
