Does anyone know of a professional photographer who conducts one-on-one intensive training?

What i'm looking for is :
* one on one training (no classroom or even small group situations)
* several hours a day , every day
* flexible on course duration - several weeks to a month or two.
* course structured from basic to advanced (which is why i said "intensive") and to cover everything from theory to practical to photoshop etc.
* highly qualified professional photographer (like National Geographic kind also can..:)

I'm willing to pay top dollar for the right trainer.

And if you do buy it, then find you don't like it after page 3, can you get your money back?

Given a professional photographer with say 30 years of experience, basing on current rate would be like $300/= per hour. Providing a 1 on 1, 8 hrs service....meaning $2,400/= per day of coaching.

Multiply it 60 days ( 2 months as stated ) ...$144,000/=

a rate which is many times better than any of those photo lecturer's salary scale, who are teaching in those arts institute or academy.

would like to recommend to one photographer, stylist cum editor who currently ( urgently ) in need of this position.

Teaching you how to use the camera? DEFINITELY POSSIBLE.
Teaching you how to make good pictures? No amount of money can. You need to learn it yourself through thousands of frames.
My friend, talent can only be nurtured, not created

The best trainer is yourself.

The end results will depend how much ones willing to comment and self-critique his/her own works.

Perhaps our friend..chihuahua has got a real passion of picking up / learning all aspect of photography.

However, as photography is an art ( or part of art , as there are many form of arts ), it will be too diversify to be master in such a short period ( as stated, utmost 2 mths ).

Share something that I knew...

in the 70s...they are guaranteed courses ( but not crash course ), for which one only have to pay $80 ~$120 once only, and will get coaching thro unlimited attempts until one obtain and pass his / her driving test.

and also, this one related by a " F " titleship holder, one keen photo enthusiast from neighbouring country had travelled all the way down during the weekend and get coaching from him on photography.
It is a guaranteed " A " titleship photo course. But he did not reveal the charges.

I am wondering whether now exist any guaranteed " Master " titleship photo course.

Unless really need hand holding, all your points can be accomplished by self reading and experimentation....
