Tuition



My tuition days are designed for the beginner and in order to maximize the session these are delivered on a 1-2-1 basis, a maximum of two photographers can be accommodation for couples who wish to attend together.
 
I offer a full day of accompanied tuition to Zoos and Wildlife Parks in the South/Midlands of the UK, a list of locations are detailed below. Sessions are normally available Monday to Friday of each week during opening periods.
 
The focus of the day is to understand the basic settings of your camera, be taught and practice skills learnt to maximize your wildlife shots from the day.
 
Sessions are flexible with the objective being that you get the most from the day, so if there is an area that you wish to focus on then this can be accommodation.
 
Equipment Recommended: Digital SLR, Zoom lens (min 200mm), plenty of memory, suitable clothing and footwear.
