About Me

I really value being able to pass on the knowledge that I have gained and thoroughly enjoy the challenges of teaching and the pleasure and joy that someone has when they have understood that knowledge and are able to then put that into practice. I like to be able to tear down the barriers that cause us to feel intimidated and take away those fears and insecurities that can make learning difficult.

Technical and creative photography for beginners and enthusiasts
Photography allows us to look at the world differently and to express ourselves without using our most common means of communication: words. My teaching method is simple: first, we identify together what you are looking for. Are you new to photography? Let's cover the basics of settings, photography theory, and get some inspiration before we hit the field. Want to hone your skills? I can offer you valuable advice on taking photos. And I can also push you to your limits with more intense methods, such as the challenge of 500 photos per week, which will allow you to learn very quickly.

Jean
Learn the photo according to your desires and needs.
I often coach, whether young people or adults. After technical basics, we will look to where you want to go, a particular style or desires, and how to get there. Whether by personal interest or by training need, your needs and desires are the basis of my approach. And then, no surprise, practice is at the heart of any progression;) Last year student of cinema, student jobist for rtbf and RTL, 3 years of radio @funradio. Producer of short films for Le Biais Vert. This is the factual side. Photography is a passion that I have had for years, and recently professionally. I am delighted to be able to transmit what I have learned, teaching allows me to continue to progress. I take commercial photos, portraits, analog and digital photography.

Sita
Photography lessons with a professional photographer.
Professional photographer, who can help you better understand photography. Since I can remember, I've had an interest in photography. My father is a professional photographer, and my mother an artist who always encouraged me to be creative and use my imagination. One of my first memories as a toddler was seeing my father develop his photos. in the then seemingly mysterious and magical darkroom. I started asking him many questions about photography from a young age. My first camera, of the simple point-and-shoot variety, was an important formative gift, but also a slight disappointment. Being a “big girl” at four years old, I had hoped for a “real” (professional) camera. From there on in my passion for photography grew. I've learned various skills over the years, started with old film cameras, then proceeded to digital SLRs and editing techniques. I love photographing people, capturing natural moments, zooming into the hidden or small things, telling a story, sensing nuances and creating beautiful images for people to cherish for the rest of their lives.

Photography & Visual Storytelling - Making photographs that capture the essence of the human experience
Hello there! This class is not just any ordinary photography class, but one that includes the social/emotional and very HUMAN element of photography as well. I am a professional photographer with a Degree and background in Photojournalism & Visual Storytelling. When I photograph weddings, clients or my own family I don't just snap a pic, I tell a story about their soul. When we don't have anything left of someone, we have our memories and our photographs. I want to teach you to make the same photographs of your loved ones or of anything in your life experience. If you have a specific story to tell, I can help you tell it in a creative and beautiful way with depth and emotion. I care about the photographs that make you want to look at them longer, always discovering a new detail every time you look at it. I can teach the technicalities and post-production aspects of photography too, but I am much more interested in an imperfect photo that has emotion than a perfect photo that doesn't tell a story. I hope I can get to know you better through the power of photography and art.

Maxime
I have been practicing photography for a few years. Beginner or initiate, I will be happy to share my teaching with you.
Suivant votre niveau, que ce soit à la maîtrise de votre matériel mais aussi dans les outils de retouches, je m'adapterai à votre niveau pour mieux vous supporter dans votre apprentissage. Ma méthode est d'échanger un maximum. Je veux essayer de mieux cerner votre point de vue ou votre façon de concevoir le projet. Je serai peut-être amené à vous conseiller des photographes qui pourrait nourrir votre projet. L'art du photographie est l'art du point de vue et de l'intuition. Pourquoi ce moment et pas un autre, pourquoi attendre et au contraire déclencher directement ? Pourquoi travailler cette focale ? Pourquoi ces couleurs ou en N/B ? Je m'efforcerai de faire éveiller et murir ces questions essentielles à avoir en tête en préparant ses photos.

Dr Eva
Photography 1-1 Lessons, Brighton UK and online with Dr Eva!
I hold a PhD in Art and Communication with Photography as my field of specialism and a PGCE teaching certificate in Post Compulsory Education. At the same time I am a practising photographic artist with an interest in abstract photography. I have a comprehensive understanding of contemporary photographic practices and of theoretical approaches to the subject, and also have a strong technical grounding both in traditional and in digital processes. I am experienced in all stages of the development of photographic projects, from early conceptualisation through to printing and exhibiting.I have exhibited nationally and internationally in both solo and group shows. My selection for the Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2008 Exhibition in Liverpool and London is one highlight among them. As an artist and teacher I insist on the highest professional standards and I emphasise clear and direct communication and honesty throughout. I have been teaching photography since 2009. I offer private lessons to photography students and any other individuals who would be interested in 'how to'/technical skills sessions or in developing a photographic body of work and would be in need for some expert advice. Just get in touch with your request as your photography needs might vary from something small to something big and I will be happy to answer and help you. I am passionate about photography and about teaching everybody to learn how to `see` and `think` creatively through the lens of a camera but also without it! I can help you develop your creative potential.
