One-on-One Tuition

Take your photography to the next level with one of Australia’s most experienced photographers and teachers!

I can plan a full-day learning program that focuses on you: your camera, your interests, and your level of experience. If you are a beginner, we can start at the beginning. I can help set up the functions on your camera to make it more user-friendly for you. I can teach you all about aperture, shutter speed, ISO, lenses, focus…everything you need to get started in creative photography.

If you are already up with the basics, we can concentrate on improving your skills in whatever type of photography that interests you: wildlife, (birds in flight is a very popular option), macro, rainforest and waterfalls, action, landscapes and more.

Long before your day arrives, we will have a conversation about what you want to learn, and we can plan a program to suit you. We can pick a suitable place to meet around the Sunshine Coast or Hinterland with plenty of good photo opportunities. Once we have covered all the theory and technique stuff, we can devote the rest of the afternoon to practice and perfecting your skills.

To improve your photography, you don’t just need a photographer – you need a photographer who knows how to teach! I have made my living from photography for over 30 years, and I have been teaching since 2008. Thousands of people have attended my Photography Essentials workshops and you can see their testimonials below. I believe in keeping things simple, and explain everything in plain English even a complete beginner can understand.

DSLR, Mirrorless DSLR, Micro Four-Thirds and good Bridge Cameras are welcome. I am familiar with all the major brands: Canon, Nikon, Sony, Pentax, Olympus, Panasonic, Fujifilm etc.

I am based in Maleny and can do the one-on-one sessions almost anywhere on the Sunshine Coast or Hinterland.

Every day of personalised tuition is different, but read the general schedule below to see how your day might unfold. Then start thinking about how you would like to spend your one-on-one day!

How do I organise my day of one-on-one tuition? I am often away on tour so I don’t sell one-on-one bookings online in the shopping cart system. First I like to know what it is you want to learn, and make sure we can agree on a date that works for both of us. I won’t take your money until I know for certain I can give you real value. So the first step is to get in contact to discuss how we can make the one-on-one concept work for you.

The best investment you can make in your photography. The one-on-one days are $400 (reduced to $325 for the duration of the Pandemic crisis), and run from 10am until the sun goes down. In addition to a full day of personal tuition, you also get a digital copy of my e-book “DSLR Photography In Plain English” and an invitation to join my special group on Flickr.

So contact me (Andrew Goodall) directly to start planning your own personal photography course! Email: admin@naturesimage.com.au or Phone: 0448 700 162.

Gift Vouchers are available. Call me on 0448 700 162 to purchase a day of one-one-one tuition for the photographer in your life!

Itinerary

Morning Session
10.00am to Midday
Getting Started
Meet Andrew at an agreed location that will offer a quiet place to concentrate and some good photo opportunities...and a cafe nearby for lunch. Spend the first couple of hours learning the theory you need to know and practicing on simple subjects. Andrew will make sure you have a good grasp of the techniques before you take on more challenging subjects in the afternoon.
Lunchtime
Midday to 1.00pm (approx)
Over lunch there is time to chat more about your interests and ask loads of questions. Andrew will tell you about his Flickr group where you can join a growing family of past students who continue to improve by sharing online and meeting for extra practice at social outings throughout the year.
Afternoon Session
1.00pm to Sunset
Practice Your Skills
Now it's time to practice what you have learned on some real-world subjects. Depending on the location you chose, you can try out your skills at the beach, in the rainforest, or look for wildlife and whatever subjects you can find. Your day finishes when the sun goes down, and Andrew will stay with you to shoot the sunset if the location and conditions are favourable.
Post-Workshop
Ongoing Support
Once your workshop is over, you will have a copy of Andrew's e-book "DSLR Photography in Plain English" to help you practice. If you have expressed an interest, you will also be invited to join the Flickr group to start making new friends in the world of photography.
