Photography Workshops & Classes

 

Photography Training
&
Private Tutoring
 

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.


Private tutoring at my kitchen table is a fantastic option for some intensive, one (or two) on one time with me,
to work with you exactly where you're at.

I'm based in Richmond, Nelson, New Zealand
but it's possible to work via skype or zoom for one-on-one photography tutoring in other locations.

Private tutoring allows me to work directly with you,
exactly where you're at in your photography journey,
to help take you to where you want to go.

Whether you have a DSLR or a point-and-shoot,
we'll get your camera set up for you
(all those mysterious lines in the camera menu!)
and we'll work through what you most want to know.
If time allows, we'll even go out together to practice a range of relevant shooting scenarios.

                      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 especially 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 program 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!

LIGHT PAINTING WORKSHOP RAVE:

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!
