Please note this time covers one session.

I've given many one on one photography training sessions over the years and it's always great to see the expression on people's faces when they have learned something new. Seems like they're thinking wow this is cool. Photography is a wonderful creative outlet and knowing how to use your tools will help you become more creative and enjoy the experience even more!

Business Excellence Awards

I've been doing more and more event photography over the last few years and I like it very much.

Event photography is like a lot of other professions and with experience you find your groove.  Through experience you learn lens selection and proper exposure. Yes setting camera exposure can be a little tricky because of the contrasty light, you gotta be careful not to blow out those highlights because that's usually where the action is.

A shot list is a must and arriving early to be able to take some time to scope out the venue is very important. You have to do this because when the show is on the house-lights are dimmed it's best to pre-plan your route so you know how to get around. You also got to know where the video cameras are placed so you won't interfere with those. It's all a matter of professional etiquette and respect is a mutual thing.

Going over the details of the event with the client is vital too. Good thing about this is that I've done so many now I'm able to offer advice on where people should be on stage when doing things like making presentations. This makes the show more visible for the audience and it also makes my work easier and I end up delivering the best product possible to my client!
