Andrew is a self taught experiential learner who is addicted to the possibilities that new (to him) gear open up. He loves to teach other people skills and techniques he has puzzled through. He finds that hands on learning (not just reading about it !) makes the new concepts easier to master. Andrew believes this to be particularly true for night photography, and he incorporates immersive teaching techniques in his night photography classes ( leave the light on, you'll be out late!). He also enjoys exploring and making landscape photos and creating editorial portraits, particularly when his subjects are doing what they love (like dancing in Lindy Hop jam circles).
Andrew is married to a polar explorer and scientist and is totally jealous that her job takes her to Antarctica every year.
1:1 Private Photography Instruction
Andrew enjoys sharing a wide range of photographic subjects with students. His IT experience gives him expertise managing and backing up digital photos.
Some of Andrew's favorite topics are:
- Digital Darkroom: Capture One, Affinity Photo, General Workflow, Archive Management, Backups
- WordPress and Website Help
- Understanding Exposure, Metering, Autofocus and Camera Features
- Wildlife Photography, Landscape Photography, Night and Astro Photography
- Automotive Photography
I can craft a single or sequence of 1:1 for most topics. Some students use 1:1 diagnostically, to help them overcome some stumbling block they have become stuck at. Others use them to quickly learn new skills without the trial and error of "DIY" learning methods.
