Private Lessons and Field Sessions are usually intended for those who already have a certain amount of photographic knowledge and have some additional questions. For those who are new to photography, we recommend that you take our regularly scheduled classes. For instance, if you just purchased your first digital camera, you should take Get to Know Your Camera or Make Great Pictures, Now!. Of course, if our classes do not fit your schedule or you need to gain some quick knowledge before an important photography trip, then private lessons are a good idea. Please contact us to set up an appointment.
Possible lessons for private classes topics include (but are not limited to):
PRIVATE LESSONS & FIELD SESSIONS:
Attending a photography class with other students is usually the best way to learn photography techniques, but each student is unique and will absorb material differently. And because everyone learns at their own pace, some specific needs and challenges may never be addressed in a workshop setting. So, from time to time, it helps to have personal photography instruction to get you unstuck and catapult you to the next level.
Whether it be general photography information or more specific technical and creative techniques in landscape photography, macro photography, or wildlife photography, Mike can help bring you to that next level of photographic expertise.
Based on various criteria and your specific needs, Mike will design the private lesson with a time period that should properly cover the topic. It may require an hour of instruction at Mike’s home studio or a two-hour field session at a local nature preserve.
For those who cannot make our regularly scheduled classes, Private Group Classes may be a good choice for you. Simply assemble a total of four enthusiastic students (minimum) to take any of our classes at our location. The more people in your group, the less each person pays! And, the leader of the group gets a discount for groups of 5 or more.
We need to know the class you’re interested in taking and the number of students in order to give you a quote. Each students must possess a DSLR camera. Please contact us for details and pricing.
