Frequently Asked Questions:
Q. How is this course different to others on the market?
A. There are many online courses available, but this course is unique in that it concentrates on travel and landscape only and it can be tailored to suit your photography interests by allowing you to choose the project-based modules that you want to do.
Q. What is the advantage of the course over learning from a magazine or book?
A. The style of the lessons are very much like a magazine article you will see in any of the photo titles, however, these obviously do not offer you feedback on your images that you take based on the article. And of course if you are still unsure of any aspect of the lesson, I can go over it with you until it you have a clear understanding of the techniques.
Q. How is this better than a normal photography workshop?
A. The course provides an alternative way of learning. A location based workshop is a great way to learn from a professional photographer, but you only have a short time to learn all the techniques you want. There can be a lot to learn in one day or a 3 day trip and if you miss anything then you are back to. reading books to find out the answer. I want you to be confident enough to go out on your own and take great pictures and still know that if it all goes wrong, I’m here to help pick up the pieces. My Combination Course however, offers the best of both ways of learning.
Q. How do you set your pricing for the courses?
A. I feel the course is great value for money considering the time you have to complete it. It compares favourably with most short break photography workshops and yet I am here as your tutor for a whole year. There are cheaper courses around, but there are also much more expensive ones too. I aim to offer you a personal service and want you to enjoy the course enough to have you recommend me to your friends.
Q. I like the idea of a photography workshop but just don’t seem to have the time to attend one.
A. The advantage of this online course is that it fits in around your time. You take your pictures for the assignments when it suits you and because the course lasts a whole year, there is plenty of time to get out with your camera when the weather is good.
Q. You don’t seem to offer any qualification or accreditation, why is this?
A. You should see this online course as a way of gaining valuable experience in photography. If you wanted to take photography up as a career, then you are more likely to get a foot on the ladder by showing a potential client a stunning portfolio, than listing a set of qualifications that you have. Even if you are already doing a college course in photography, you would still benefit from doing this course too for experience and it would add huge weight to impressing an employer or higher education that you had completed additional courses, just like doing volunteer work adds experience to your CV. Experience is the key and an impressive portfolio opens lots of doors.
Q. I am after a photography tutor, do you offer a bespoke service beside the course?
A. Yes. If the course is not quite what you are looking for, then I am happy to arrange a tailor made course with you. Please get in touch to discuss your requirements.
