In TWO hours, you’ll learn how to use your digital camera!
Don’t you hate it when you’re trying to learn something new and not really getting it? Frustration takes over, you throw your camera at a wall, you give up… and then… you… eventually buy a new camera.
Let’s forget about that little “situation,” because here, you’ll have an expert photography mentor right next to you, guiding you along – hands on, one to one so you can improve your photography skills instantly!
“Simplicity First” Teaching
In automatic mode have you ever wondered why your photographs appear too dark or too bright? This is because your camera’s auto mode is “metering” the light without understanding what YOU want to do with the photograph. It makes a mathematic calculation and acts on that. You’ll learn about finding the best light and how to control it so you can see how it affects your photograph. No more blurry images or missing that gorgeous sunset because your stupid camera doesn’t get it.
More importantly, you’ll learn how to use your digital camera in manual mode. Over time we’ve nearly perfected our manual mode teaching philosophy. In fact, its simplicity is something we’re quite proud of. You’ll learn about shutter speed, aperture, ISO and controlling the light with your camera. Our walks are constantly evolving as we discover new hidden photographic hot spots around the world, join us and capture your own unique photographs!

Iconic New York
“We’ll explore one of NYC’s most recognisable neighbourhoods, the financial district. Soaring skyscrapers, sleek suits and slick hairstyles, you’ll learn how to capture some of the most iconic sites in the world. We’ll top this off with a quick trip to midtown where we’ll show you our most famous rooftop bar and take some post card worthy imagery of the empire state building.”

Its distinctive character and vibrant mix of cultural institutions, shops and historic spots are a street photographer’s oasis. Just before sunset we’ll take the subway to our absolute favourite Manhattan skyline location. Here we’ll teach you about capturing this iconic city in the best possible light.”
