Technical and creative photography for beginners and enthusiasts
Photography allows us to look at the world differently and to express ourselves without using our most common means of communication: words. My teaching method is simple: first, we identify together what you are looking for. Are you new to photography? Let's cover the basics of settings, photography theory, and get some inspiration before we hit the field. Want to hone your skills? I can offer you valuable advice on taking photos. And I can also push you to your limits with more intense methods, such as the challenge of 500 photos per week, which will allow you to learn very quickly.

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.

Photography & Visual Storytelling - Making photographs that capture the essence of the human experience
Hello there! This class is not just any ordinary photography class, but one that includes the social/emotional and very HUMAN element of photography as well. I am a professional photographer with a Degree and background in Photojournalism & Visual Storytelling. When I photograph weddings, clients or my own family I don't just snap a pic, I tell a story about their soul. When we don't have anything left of someone, we have our memories and our photographs. I want to teach you to make the same photographs of your loved ones or of anything in your life experience. If you have a specific story to tell, I can help you tell it in a creative and beautiful way with depth and emotion. I care about the photographs that make you want to look at them longer, always discovering a new detail every time you look at it. I can teach the technicalities and post-production aspects of photography too, but I am much more interested in an imperfect photo that has emotion than a perfect photo that doesn't tell a story. I hope I can get to know you better through the power of photography and art.

Photography 1-1 Lessons, Brighton UK and online with Dr Eva!
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.
