Photography is, without doubt, one of the most rewarding pastimes we can have. Enjoyable, creative, stimulating and fun. It gives us the opportunity of putting our ideas into ‘print’ in a way that is both satisfying and artistic. The camera is like an artist’s palette. We are the artists.

Even though this is a class of 15 participants, everything you learn, you learn by doing! All your work is individual. You learn by taking pictures.

Here I taught photography as a practical skill, not as a theoretical course of study as I assume the participants have no prior knowledge or training before signing up for the course. The course starts with fundamentals and moves up to complete mastery of professional techniques in causal but carefully planned steps.

The Foundation Photography Course will require participants to take lots of pictures. If this is call “work”, then…I work you hard.

Absolutely! When you want to make professional-looking pictures for your own satisfaction…perhaps win prizes in competition or even see your work being published. Some of my ex-students pursue photography as a career- full-time or part time while keeping their day jobs.

Course participants are required to own an SLR Analog/Digital camera or prepared to own one after the 1st session.
