A vibrant and experienced qualified photography tutor - up to University level.

Methodology

I love to have fun, create challenges, and break rules. I will enforce the fundamentals of photography, and then allow you enough freedom to find your MoJo! Once you are confident enough, I will assign projects which I think complement your style of photography.

Experience

I completed a four-year B Tec degree in photography and multimedia. I then owned two photographic agencies, lectured photography in several countries, and worked as a partner in an advertising agency. Portraiture has been my busiest role as a photographer, and I am fortunate to have spent intimate times photographing influential people like Oprah, Sir Richard Branson, Nelson Mandela, Bishop Tutu, Manchester United, All Blacks, Springboks etc.

Michael helped me go from "how does my camera work?" to "oh wow, I'm a wedding photographer!"

He's patient and insightful and somehow always has the energy to answer all my questions.

If you want to be a BETTER photographer by tomorrow, I recommend that you get started with Michael today.

Michael taught me studio lighting at the Cape Town School of Photography back in 2011. He is an extremely talented photographer and great fun to work with. He is professional, knowledgeable and pushes his students to reach their full potential. I would highly recommend Michael!

Marcus

Mining may not be the most glamorous of subjects but Michael provided a stock of highly imaginative and innovative images for the minerals exploration company I work for. Michael is passionate about his trade and is always seeking new and unique perspectives and subject matter. I can’t think of anyone more suited to sparking and developing your interest in photography.

Brian

As the head of Panasonic Digital Imaging in South Africa I engaged with Michael to use his skills as the Panasonic DI ambassador. He successfully tutored many of my clients in the art and technical aspects of photography. Michael was always professional and open with his knowledge of photography. His lessons were always interesting and exciting as he brings his unique personality to the teaching environment. Having seen him tutor and the results that it achieved, I have no reservation in recommending Michael as a photographic Superprof.

Davina

Michael helped me understand the basics of Lightroom and Photoshop and gave me valuable photographic tips and advice. He is a brilliant tutor, patient and kind and possesses a great sense of humour. Highly recommended.

G
Grant

Michael took me on a 10 day trip through Holland and taught me through practical experience many things about photography. Michael is technically brilliant and highly qualified in all types of photography from architectural stills to model and celebrity shoots, videography and even drone photography. Possibly his best qualities are his patience and kindness when interacting with students, clients and models alike. I highly recommend Michael!
