« Trevor Aston has tutored my son on a weekly in photography for over a year and has actively engaged him in the technical and practical aspects of the work. He's really supported Josh to develop an eye for capturing his own photographic style and interpretation of the world. Trevor is incredibly patient and goes beyond the norm, often helping Josh with tasks such as early morning or late evening shoots. He's willing to go that extra mile to inspire confidence. »

Photography Tutor Twickenham | Photoshop Lessons Teddington

Methodology

Photography is the most democratic of creative tools. I will help the student find their 'eye', develop a belief in themselves and the value of their unique perspective as an artist or journalist.

The first conversation I have is about what the student wants to do with photography, where they want to develop their skills and for what purpose. Motivation can range from artistic expression through to professional use, the lessons reflect the students starting point and destination. We will talk with the camera in and hand or at the computer to gain an understanding of the ‘tools’, then discuss assignments aimed at building the understanding.

I got my first camera 46 years ago, I’ve had time to practise. Capturing a moment in time fascinated me and continues to - sharing the way it looked to you, your perspective, your vision, your insight. Shooting on film was a fantastic learning curve, as a 14 year-old I could afford one roll a month from the proceeds of my newspaper round. That’s 36 exposures. But I’ve never been so enthralled by a technology as I was by digital photography and the manipulation you can do on a computer. But the camera and computer are just tools to achieve an aesthetic goal, the sooner that using the camera becomes second nature, more a matter of muscle memory the better. That’s what we’ll work towards in theses sessions.

Lessons can be delivered at my Teddington base, at the student's home, or on location according to the student's assignment. There are no restrictions on timings other than previous diary commitments.

I have tutored adults and children successfully.

I asked Trevor to help me with taking photographs for the cooking book I am writing. I have my own camera and Trevor came to help me set it up; what is the best place, setting of the camera etc. He was very helpful, patient and gave me some good ideas.

I love photography, not Photoshop. Luckily I know a man who not only likes it, he enjoys sharing his extensive knowledge. Trevor knows his business. If you need to learn the basics of Photoshop or develop your own abilities I'd strongly recommend Trevor as a tutor. He is also an extremely nice man who will encourage you and support you through your development with his excellent technical skills and gentle personable style . I could not recommend him highly enough.
