My photography classes are tailored to where participants are at,
and are extremely hands-on.
The number of participants is intentionally kept low
so that you will be assured of personal attention.
They're jam-packed full of practical how-to's.
You'll leave with your head buzzing, full of inspiration and ideas,
and armed with knowledge to take you to the next level in your photographic journey.
I'm based in Richmond, Nelson, New Zealand
but it is possible to work via skype for one-on-one photography tutoring in other locations.
Scroll down for upcoming workshops and private tutoring options.
More classes coming soon - watch this space!
Make sure you're following me on facebook for all the latest updates

Beginner Basics Photography Workshop
Do you own a DSLR (a digital camera with removable lens), but use it like a point-and-shoot?
Then I've designed this course for you!
I'll work with you to unlock the mysteries of your camera,
and take you from driving your camera like a Toyota, to enjoying it more like a Ferrari!
I'll coach you from shooting in programme mode, to being comfortable in manual mode.
You will learn how to use ISO, aperture, shutter-speed, focal length, light manipulation,
and basic composition techniques to deliberately & intentionally create images that wow!
You'll need a DSLR (digital camera with removable lens) for this fun evening workshop
(and a tripod would be super handy if you can access one).
You'll learn to CREATE images in the dark,
while learning so much about making your camera work for you!
You'll discover bulb mode, manual focus, and more,
while using torches, gels, sparklers and spark poi.
Just like the big dollops of endorphins I get from Seido karate and running,
taking photographs is soul-food for me - capturing a moment, something beautiful,
birds, animals, the sea and the sky ... it's all therapy!
But I muddle my way through when it comes to the technicalities of my Rolls Royce of a camera!
So, last night this happened ....!
With a little group of keen photographers, I did my best to soak up all that photographer Sandra Johnson
could share with us in just a couple of hours - and boy, it went by quickly!
The best bit was heading out into the night to play in the park.
SO much fun!
Thanks for the Light Painting Photography Workshop, Sandra Johnson Boutique Photography!
