1 to 1 and Private Group 'Introduction to Photography' Walks - Norfolk/London
Who are 1:1 an private group walks aimed at?
1:1 and private group walks are aimed at beginners, hobbyists, walkers, explorers and all those looking to practice photography with some gentle guidance. Perhaps you've recently bought (or have been given) a new camera, or have owned a camera for a while and would like to learn how to get more from it. A 1 to 1 or private group walk will help develop your creative vision and give you the knowledge required to create eye catching images.
Private group walks are perfect for families, friends, a work 'team build' outing, hen or stag parties or as bespoke events for hospitality and tourism businesses.
What will I learn?
We'll talk about composition and the importance of story telling in photography. We'll also look at the different settings on your camera and practice using them to create immersive images. If you've ever wondered where to put an object in the frame, which aperture, shutter speed or ISO settings to use and when to adjust them, a 1 to 1 or private group walk could be for you.
What type of camera should I bring?
Any camera type is fine from smartphone/compact to Bridge/CSC/DSLR. However, the level of available tuition is fully dependent on your camera type and the settings it has within it. For example, while we can create stunning images with smartphones and compact cameras, these cameras will not have the same functions or controls as a DSLR.
What can I expect on a walk day, when and where do they happen?
To begin our walk, we'll meet in a local cafe and chat for a while about what you may or may not already know about photography, I'll then run through some basic camera settings before we head out on our route. You'll be encouraged to look for subjects and capture images that you find appealing. I'll be on hand to offer guidance, inspiration, encouragement and suggestions of what I think make a nice photograph.
