Benoît
15 years of experience * children adults and seniors teens * Private lessons and small groups
Do you have too many buttons on your camera? Would you like to know how to avoid blurry photos (even with children inside)? Do you believe your creativity is damaged by the computer built into your digital device? I started photography at the age of 10 and I animated my first workshops at the beginning of the 20aine ... today it is always a passion that I love to transmit! My pedagogy is recognized, I am naturally calm and patient. I taught in Brussels, Roubaix and Montreal in photography shops, day camps, and many leisure centers and academies. My goal ? That you simplify the technique to be super efficient and feel free to face your subject. Once the technique is mastered I send you the stuff of the pros to make beautiful pictures, otherwise you would make good pictures technically but quite dull ...;) So yes the photo is accessible to all, at all ages ... contact me to regain control of your case and release your creativity.

Jack
Digital Photography and Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop for beginners
Hi there, I have worked for the last 3 years as a freelance photographer shooting products, portraiture, weddings and events after achieving a 1st Class BA Honours degree in Photography. I am technically experienced as a photographer and as such I can teach the principles of exposure, composition and lighting; as well as the basic principles and methods of editing in Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom. Students will learn from me how to confidently use a camera in manual mode and how achieve stunning results in editing with even the simplest of equipment! I am also a practising photographic artist with an interest and understanding of contemporary photography; I have been a part of several exhibitions in both solo and group shows and I have a good understanding of the history and discourse of photography as an art form. As a photographer and teacher I operate on the highest professional standards, emphasising clear and encouraging feedback on students work.

Alice
Graduate teacher for exam assistance, essay writing, general culture or guided tours
I give private lessons in art history for three years, either for students who need an accompaniment, or for the curious who want to enrich their artistic culture. My teaching adapts precisely to the needs of each student and especially to their way of assimilating information. Former student in difficulty, I developed a method that allows to analyze any type of work, from classical to contemporary, without prior knowledge. I am specialized in the methodology of dissertation / dissertation according to the rules of the French University. (Construction of the plan, development of a common thread, layout etc.) Passionate, I also like to transmit the wonderful stories of the works during introductory courses in art history, artistic culture or guided tours of the museum. My classes are also convivial moments where we can talk about our personal interests, which allows me to direct my students to exhibitions, readings or events related to their subject. My goal is obviously to make my students autonomous, so I give them all the tools they need to know how to provide excellent work without being dependent on the particular teacher at the end of the year. My last students: - Zaïd: redoubling for the second time his degree in Visual Arts at the Sorbonne because of theoretical subjects, passed his exams successfully this year. He regained confidence and taste to study. -Claire: student at Boulle school in woodcarving redoubled because of his memory. I supervised him in the writing of his new dissertation mixing literary analysis, artistic and scientific discoveries. She validated it brilliantly. -Tian: 30 years old, Chinese student, had no knowledge of the history of Western art. After one year of private lessons, she was admitted to the GRETA School of Guides Speakers. -Aude: I guide Aude and her two teenage children in the big museums to discover the little stories behind each painting. From the Palais de Tokyo to the Louvre Museum I invent for them playful ways to apprehend the works. - Jacqueline: 94, had lost her good humor and was bored. For two years now, we meet every week for a moment of sharing and exchange around artistic themes chosen especially for her. It's a joy for everyone.
