All round photography enthusiast offering tuition on the basics of cameras, light, composition etc.

Methodology

With a CELTA (the universal qualification for English-as-a-foreign-language teaching) I'm trained in education to the extent that I understand how to communicate effectively, structure lessons and deliver content. That said, if a more casual approach is what you're looking for, then I'll happily revert back to my usual self when teaching you. I'll work with whatever camera you have; if you don't have any then I can also recommend some as bring my own.

Experience

I've recently graduated from St Andrews in Russian and Philosophy. Had a great time at uni and got up to all sorts. Electronic music and photography are my two main interests other than my degree. They've had a constant presence in my life in Scotland and in St Petersburg where I spent a year.
