Teaching

I started working in the video industry in 2007.
I registered my first photography business in 2010.

I still work in both areas professionally and wouldn’t want it any other way. Photography and videography rely on the same principles and both have their own fascination, power and challenges.
During my creative career I went through a number of different roles, tasks and responsibilities – everything I know I learnt through a lot of practice, research and training, jobs, projects and curiosity.

In my current role as a Senior Video Producer in higher education, I’ve been given the opportunity to share my knowledge and train others in the field of video and while in the past I always tried to stay away from that as far as possible, it turns out that I actually enjoy it.
That’s why I decided to offer 1-2-1 photography, videography as well as photo and video editing sessions to help others get better in something they enjoy doing.

I am offering tutoring sessions tailored to what you want to learn, based on the packages below. If you want to learn something very specific that’s not mentioned, just get in touch so we can have a chat about what you’re interested in learning.
