London based artist offering photography classes where you will learn how to use 120 film, 35mm and digital cameras

Methodology

Each students learns in their own way. I use the first tutorial session to see what the best teaching method is for that individual, discuss what that individual wants to achieve, where the student feels they are struggling and develop a bespoke lesson plans for that student.

Experience

I graduated from Central St. Martins in 2010 (studying Sculpture) and from the Ceramics & Glass Masters programme at The Royal College of Art in 2015. I have been teaching photography, art and craft for over 10 years. I have helped students develop projects, supported sketch book development and worked on creating exciting portfolios for applications.
