|Learning to be a more effective photographer - both taking
photographs and photography as a business
Are you seeking to improve your skills as
a photographer, in creative photography, in photography as a business or in
photography as part of a business role? I provide classes / tutorials for photographers who understand and have
practiced photography and are looking to improve their performance in
photographing weddings, portraits and social/business events - photographing
people, photographing animals and photographing locations and art. Tutorials are
normally one on one but can be for a couple if relevant. The most popular theme is
photographing people, though I also cover photography of landscapes,
property, art and animals - where I also have personal experience.
Each tuition session is typically for two + hours and the
content and length of each session is tailored to your requirements and level of
development. Tutorials are normally held at my base in Esher, Elmbridge, Surrey -
local for London and Surrey clients but quite accessible for the Home Counties.
I have a flexible approach mainly providing the service at my base, but I can
also visit you. Tuition schedules are adapted to your availability and
locations. Remote sessions using web and phone can be used along side the
face to face teaching, for those living and/or working further a field -
especially after the first session and when reviewing assignments. These
remote sessions are
also valuable for those seeking brief reminders/assistance between sessions or
when later photographing alone. Most tutorials are taken on a one to one or one
to two basis.
scene - close to our base in Esher at the centre of Elmbridge,
Surrey; where most tutorials are given.
Topics are selected to match your needs. Those covered include,
Composition, selection of photographs,
use of light, helping subjects to relax and bring their best to the photography, critiques of your work, developing your
style and eye for a good photograph, the management of the wedding or portrait
session, photography as a business, use of computers and editing tools, applying
technology, use of camera features and digital editing, working with
professional printers and media choice.
An important part of the learning process involves those
taking the course taking
photographs as an assignment (before and between tutorial sessions).
Such assignments can be part of your regular photographic work or targeted
photography as part of the tuition process. These are
critiqued and discussed at the next teaching session. These help focus the tutorials
on your skills and development. While most sessions are concerned with
taking photographs and handling the subjects I can also cover commercial aspects of
Types of photography that can be covered based on my
experience include, weddings, portraits, business meetings and events, PR, web
sites, landscapes, pets and wild animals, buildings and public areas. My
work in these fields is illustrated in the photographs sections of this site as
well on selected other pages.

I also provide extensions to tutorials through
advising you on one or more of your
projects. I provide a mentoring follow up service for tutorial clients who need brief
advice - using phone, email or meetings.
Do ring or email me if
interested in discussing how I can help you develop as a professional
photographer, as an amateur photographer or to move from an amateur to a professional
photographer. According to need, photography students may take a few
tutorials, courses of several tuition sessions and/or follow up mentoring.
Several of those I have tutored became established professional photographers.
Other established photographer were looking to improve their craft from the
tuition. A number of amateur photographers have used the tuition to
improve their work related photography and / or to undertake occasional professional assignments.
Individual and Group Tutorials: Most of my
tutorials are on a one to one basis. I also provide the service for two
people, family, friends or business colleagues, who have similar experience and
photographic interests. While I can provide tutorials on your site most
tutorial clients visit me in Esher, Surrey
Tutorial Gifts: If you want to give
someone a special gift and a boost to their photography consider giving them an initial tutorial
session or even a course of tutorials with Majken. This can be
provided as a simple gift or supported with a voucher. If you are buying
or planning to give an entry level digital camera see
Tutorial Costs, see: Fees and prices
