Individual or private small group course

Do you want to know more about how to use your digital camera?
Forget about trial and error.
There is nothing like learning at your own pace and learning exactly what you want to know. Let me tailor a private, one day session that is just right for you.
This hands on photography course is ideal for someone wanting to learn more about how to use their camera.

You don't need to remember everything. You get my notes in a workbook.

I'm still there to help you after your course. You get unlimited email support should you have any questions.
You get 12 months membership to an exclusive community of like-minded people. Valued at $89.95
I will print one of your photographs on fine art paper at no additional cost. A $10.00 value.
I really like taking photos of nature which when I was told I was going to Queens Park and Laurel Bank Park, I was excited. But when I was told I was going into the city, I was nervous because I don't like taking photos of people or anything to do with structures and things. When the day came, I actually really enjoyed it and I've started taking photos of people and objects! I've also started to take my camera everywhere now and started to look at things more differently. And I also found out things that I didn't know I could do 🙂 I really think the course was worth it.
Happy to recommend Shane. He was so accommodating for my teenaged niece who was taking her first steps in learning about photography. She finished her course full of confidence and inspiration.
Shane was a great teacher. He was very patient and helpful, even when I felt a bit overwhelmed. He was willing to tailor a one-on-one course to me and my business which was a huge asset. I very much enjoyed my photography course and would highly recommend Shane to others.
It was really good course to get me started. I feel that my photography has improved dramatically since taking the course. The amount of content delivered was just right and I really enjoyed the day.
