My customised one-on-one training workshops equip you with the essential tools needed to dramatically improve your skills.


Maybe you’re sick of searching YouTube for instance? Perhaps you cant dedicate an entire day to a group session? Or you just don’t like groups at all? Does your job require you to take photos? 


These are all valid. In other words, not everybody’s needs fit in a standard group workshop.


One-on-one sessions are perfect however if you prefer to the personal attention that comes from working face-to-face with someone who can explain everything you need to know in a way that makes sense. 


This is why for each of my one-on-one session a personalised program is designed based upon your skill level, equipment, area of interest and your desired outcomes.


One-On-One Photography Workshops topics include:


  • Camera Skills
  • Studio Lighting
  • Natural Light and Lifestyle Portraiture
  • Off Camera Flash
  • E-commerce and Product Photography
  • Travel Photography


If it’s not on the list however, feel free to contact me and suggest it. You name I’m sure we can do it.


The training is suitable for beginners, advanced amateurs and professionals with a passion for for photography across fashion, design, portraiture, wedding, landscape or commercial photography. 


Each participant will gain some seriously cool photographic knowledge, and after that, the confidence and skills to employ on your next shoot.


All sessions include a pre-training consult, tuition development and the training session. If models and locations are required in addition to the workshop, they are charged at cost only.

From Crystal:

Have been on two of Andrew’s courses now and my photos just keep getting better and better. His flexible teaching methods and hands on approach makes the courses practical so you get in there and learn photography faster. Love his classes and will keep going back for more, as I have had so many “light bulb” moments when it comes to my photography that I can’t wait for more enlightening!

From Kellie:

I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful day I had on Saturday at the Beginners Photography Course with Andrew. I was nervous I would be the stupidest there and not take anything in but I learned so much and had a fabulous day!
