Unlike mentoring, photography training focuses on specific areas of your skill set. Training aims to teach you how to do specific things or to achieve a particular look, for example. Training will teach you our methods and how we do things in a lesson type context. If you are more interested in developing your own ideas, skills and looks over time through professional leadership, Mentoring may be a better fit for you.
Who isn’t it for? Whilst training focuses on the teaching and learning of specific skills, it’s not a beginners course in photography or learning to use a DSLR. We can of course help with basics if need be, but none of what we do is aimed at people who are picking up a camera for the first time. Similarly, it’s not for anyone who’s hoping to learn that there’s a one size fits all magic button for perfect photos in any situation. Photography, unfortunately, doesn’t work like that and regardless of what we teach you, you’ll still need to be adaptable enough to take those skills and tweak them according to the situation at hand.
Training is about sharing skills and giving you the foundations to developing your own techniques within your photography business. Whilst we all as photographers have shared objectives, we love originality. Share Objectives, Love Originality. SOLO.
We would recommend that all training sessions take place in person. We are based in ESSEX until the end of 2018. We will then be relocating to Lincolnshire in the East Midlands. From 2019 our studio will be available for in person mentoring and studio sessions
