Why expert tuition makes a difference .

Many years ago, when I was starting out in photography, I was given some good advice by an experienced photographer. Years later, I looked back and realised that that advice was a defining moment in my photography. That one statement set me thinking in a certain way about photography that has led me to where I am today.

To borrow a very famous line from Robert Frost "Two roads diverged in the woods, and I, I took the one less travelled, and that has made all the difference."

I believe that anybody can learn to take great photos. Unfortunately most people don't reach there full potential. They don't hear what they need to hear, or if they do hear it, they hear it too late.

Don't let that happen to you; be the photographer you would like to be.

Come with us and we'll take you down a road less travelled. A road lined with wonderful images that are a joy to behold. Images you'll be proud of and that will make you the envy of all of your friends.

Weekend and longer workshops:

For a couple of days, or more – while staying in a location that has fantastic photo opportunites – you will totally immerse yourself in photography (if the idea of talking photography at the dinner table doesn't appeal, these workshops are not for you :-) People are often fired up after doing the one-day workshop or night class and want more. This is where the weekend workshops come in. It's a chance to take your photography to the next level, and to start into more specialised areas of photography like macro and night photography etc.

Photoshop courses:

You can't turn a sow's ear into a silk purse, but good photos can be polished into great photos. For this job there is no better tool than Photoshop. Learning Photoshop is more than just learning all of its features. It's learning a complete, creative style of working.

Photo tours:

For people who are visiting Dunedin and want to see some great locations that only a photographer would know about; at a time when the light is right for photography.
