Highlights
  • Private live-streamed session with a professional photographer who will teach you some of the photography skills
  • This session is dedicated to anything specific that you would like to know about photography. It is perfect for getting a critique on your photos to improve them
  • Delve deeper into the capabilities of your camera
Description

We will start by looking at 5 of your photos that will need to be sent via email beforehand. I will discuss what I see and ask pointed questions regarding the nature of the composition of your image. We will then move onto a relevant area of knowledge which is based on the learner's current level and type of equipment. 

The discussion will include getting the best out of your equipment with some practical exercises, some composition theory, and finally, your personal photographic process. 

We will conclude with a discussion on retouching and some demos based on the client's questions. Once this hour has been completed we can look at further time in the future where we can address certain topics in more detail. All of this is dependent on the client's wishes and level.

Greg Hillyard

I am a creative photographer who loves to travel and explore. I enjoy living a varied and adventurous life and love sharing time with fellow travel enthusiasts whether it be a hiking adventure or enjoying the very finest food and wines. My first language is English but I'm also known to help my guests learn some of our many other languages here in South Africa like Afrikaans and Xhosa. I offer urban tours, rural tours, and adventures not for the faint-hearted!
