Photography Training – Online Digital Photography Training, Consultation & Mentoring

Whether you are a complete beginner or a photographer wanting to take your business to the next level, our range of photography training programmes are the answer. From short hourly consultations to courses or complete guides in various genres of photography not to mention long term mentoring, we can help you gain confidence, pick up new skills, streamline your business and achieve your photographic goals.


Online digital photography course for all levels

One of the things that make our online photography courses and programs unique is that you will be taught live one to one by one of our pros. These are not video courses or a recorded photography class. Over Skype, your tutor will deliver an online course that will you improve your photography skills. This will be like attending local photography courses but from the comfort of your own home.

Because all of our training courses, consultations and mentoring is online, it means you can do them at a time that will best suit you. This will be ideal for those looking for part-time photography courses.

Learn what you need to learn

Another great advantage of our online photography classes is that we can tailor them to your needs, experience and skill level. For example, if you are a complete beginner you may want to start with the fundamentals of photography and learn how to control your camera so that you can get off automatic settings and start shooting in manual mode.

Or you may be an established photographer and need help with post processing, social media or even some business training. Get in touch with us and see how we can help you achieve your photography goals.

Online Photography Courses

Unlike other online photography courses, our courses are run live one to one via Skype with one of our professional photographers. So not only can you listen and learn but you will also have the opportunity to ask questions.

Each course consists of 12 hours of tuition in 3-hour sessions over 4 days. The great thing is that these sessions are not over consecutive days so you have time to practice after each session and ask any questions you may have.

At the end of each session, you will be set a task to help ensure you remember the lessons that were covered.

Some of our most popular online courses include:

  • A beginners guide to photography
  • Landscape photography
  • Travel photography
  • Photographing people
  • Lightroom editing
  • Sunrise, sunset and blue hour photography
