Professional filmmaker and artist teaches film editing. Avid, Adobe Premiere Pro etc. as a course or individually adapted.
I teach Premiere Pro and Avid Media Composer, from beginner to advanced. In the beginner and intermediate courses, all the important basics are covered and practiced using practical applications. The advanced courses go into finer details, such as advanced editing techniques or shed light on specific processes such as proxy workflows or colour management. Structure: The technical lessons are structured in 1 hour modules, using practical examples and allow time for experimentation and questions. I also teach editing theory and creative strategies across many different genres and styles. These are less structured and are tailored to specific needs. Open Sessions are also possible, where you may bring along a personal project in Premiere or Avid and I will offer you technical assistance, feedback or tips.

I hold a PhD in Art and Communication with Photography as my field of specialism and a PGCE teaching certificate in Post Compulsory Education. At the same time I am a practising photographic artist with an interest in abstract photography. I have a comprehensive understanding of contemporary photographic practices and of theoretical approaches to the subject, and also have a strong technical grounding both in traditional and in digital processes. I am experienced in all stages of the development of photographic projects, from early conceptualisation through to printing and exhibiting.I have exhibited nationally and internationally in both solo and group shows. My selection for the Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2008 Exhibition in Liverpool and London is one highlight among them. As an artist and teacher I insist on the highest professional standards and I emphasise clear and direct communication and honesty throughout. I have been teaching photography since 2009. I offer private lessons to photography students and any other individuals who would be interested in 'how to'/technical skills sessions or in developing a photographic body of work and would be in need for some expert advice. Just get in touch with your request as your photography needs might vary from something small to something big and I will be happy to answer and help you. I am passionate about photography and about teaching everybody to learn how to `see` and `think` creatively through the lens of a camera but also without it! I can help you develop your creative potential.

Sandrine
Photography and visual communication for advanced beginners
Photography is a very powerful vehicle, visually and emotionally. In order not to disturb what is important in the image, it is necessary to choose the framing and the colors wisely. Even if it means retouching, reframing afterwards, there is first of all what we want to say and the reflection on the moment, quick and efficient to know. You should not stimulate the eye by too much information, and master the technique. In this, knowing the basics and rudiments for a very effective shot is important.
