About the lesson
I teach photography with the approach of 'start where you are'.
I didn't know that much when I left college, despite having done a degree in Photography.
So I like to mix technical knowledge with practical activities in every lesson. I like to extend the shooting components with forethought about the digital post production.
I know that people get worried about lighting, and so I like to break things down into simple chunks and then build up from there.
You should never feel like a tutor or mentor is going too fast. You learn best when you're relaxed and engaged.

I started my career in the mid nineties in the photographic darkroom, in a processing lab in London UK. After a year or so I was the first digital retoucher that lab had hired.
After a decade working as a Photoshop retoucher, I began shooting and retouching my own jobs, starting with small product photos and shots of friends.
By 2012 I had earned over $1million shooting for clients worldwide. ((concealed information)
I still shoot today, but I have also discovered that I love teaching and mentoring people with a passion for success in photography.
To me success is not about high earning shoots, although they are great! Success is achieving images that exceed our expectations, that communicate our love of seeing the world through images.
John Adrian and I have worked together for several years at the Branding Agency Wolff Olins where John specialised in design, photography and the many associated industry standard creative applications including Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom.
Not only does John have excellent knowledge of practical photography, related software and hardware, but he is also a great personality with the patience required of a good teacher and so I highly recommend him as an excellent Superprof.
