Improve your photography with a beginners course from London based film and photography professional

Methodology

In my career working at a high level required a lot of discipline and a high skill level but in a creative area I think that it should also include a lot of fun and that is how I design my teaching.
In the past I have lectured to groups but I find teaching "one to one" much more rewarding as you can really get to know what the individual needs. My lessons are usually hourly but I am happy to customise to suit your commitments. Please get in touch by email or phone to find out how I can help you realise your individual potential.

Experience

Hi, I have worked in the film and photography business for about 40 years mostly for BBC TV in London. I know, you don't have to tell me that sounds a very long time! However I can assure you every bit of it was fantastic and so enjoyable. You may want to learn for fun, maybe want to improve your photography skills or you might just want to kickstart your career in photography, film or TV? What ever your needs I am sure I will be able to help. My experience includes shooting stills and video footage for broadcast on BBC 1 & 2 using DSLR / video cameras. I am also BBC trained in lighting for TV and stills (3 Point lighting) and as an ex film editor familiar with shooting for an edit.

I have worked with Allan on several assignments filming video casts with University academics. Allan is calm, clear and extremely professional. He puts people at ease and achieved excellent results.
