Workshops & Mentoring

Before I was a photographer, I was a teacher to little kids. I love to explain how stuff work and love sharing my knowledge. I taught myself everything I know about photography and business, and I believe I'm really good at it. So by teaching I share my own journey and empower others to also believe in themselves to create. 

I do group workshops or one-on-one mentoring sessions ranging from basic photography to editing to the business side of things.

BASIC PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP - R1500

EVER WISHED YOU COULD:

  • use all the functions of your DSLR camera?
  • create beautiful images with your current camera and lenses?
  • tell unique stories with your photos?

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN:

  • camera settings and what they do
  • how to use these settings in specific situations
  • what is exposure and how it works
  • how to shoot in manual mode
  • when to use the other camera modes
  • lenses, how they work and how to best use them
  • storytelling with your images

There is a short shooting practical where you'll be able to practice what you've learned and I'll be there answering any questions you have. 

Tea, coffee and something to eat is always served.

You also get a Basic Photography Manual written by me with beautiful illustrations by Olive & Arrow Design

LIGHTROOM BASICS WORKSHOP - R1250

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN:

  • How to import photos
  • How to use the Lightroom Library module
  • How to use the Develop module
  • How to edit in the Develop module (I go through the whole Develop panel and also show you how to batch edit)
  • How to create your own presets
  • How to export photos and create watermarks (also batch export)
  • I also go through my own workflow after a shoot, from saving photos, backing up photos, editing, exporting, backup again, printing, etc.

You'll get a free preset made by me to use in your own editing.

Tea, coffee and something to eat is always served.

For this workshop you need to bring your own computer with Lightroom already installed.

ADVANCED PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOPS

I also hosts advanced photography workshops for the keen photography hobbyist, the creative that wants to start a business in photography, or just for those needing a creative boost and some inspiration.

ADVANCED 'SHOOT WITH ME' WORKSHOP - from R2500

This workshop will be a full day shooting workshop with a setup scene and the photos you take on this day can be used for your portfolio. 

There will be a talk on starting and maintaining an online presence as a creative business owner by an online marketer. 

A sit down lunch will be served. Snacks, coffee and tea will be available througout the day. 

I also present this workshop as 'n photo walk day doing street photography where you have to think creatively on the spot with whatever is in front of you. Street photography let's you look at ordinary scenes in a totally different way.

ADVANCED PHOTOGRAPHY RETREAT - from R3750

The photography retreat will be a weekend in nature where we'll take walks, photograph the sunset and sunrise, the stars (long exposure photography) and just enjoy the beauty of nature and how to best capture it with the equipment you have.

The cost will include food and lodging.

* An art exhibition and cocktail event will be arranged afterwards showcasing the best photographs taken over the weekend.
