Online Mentoring Session – Power Hour

When it comes to photography and video, from equipment to shooting techniques all the way to cataloging your footage and post-processing, there are a lot of things that can be overwhelming or confusing – especially (but not exclusively) when you’re just starting out.

With my Power Hour, I’m going to try and give you clarity on whatever you’d like to know more about. We can talk about a specific problem or a general introduction to a topic you’d like to learn more about. The areas in which I can offer help can be found in the list below.

What do I offer?

I offer 60min video calls to talk through any of your photography or video projects or a specific area you’d like to learn more about within the photo and video industry.

Before your call, you will receive a short questionnaire ahead of our conversation to help me prepare for your session. During your session, we can talk through your challenges, and I will provide my knowledge, tips and tricks, links to online reading materials or videos as well as a task or list of actions to take for you after our call.

The areas I offer training in

  • Basic knowledge of photography (with DSLR or mirrorless camera)
  • Understanding and utilising light in photos
  • Composition
  • Adobe Lightroom basics and editing
  • Street photography
  • Basic knowledge of videography
  • Understanding and utilising light in videos
  • Video filming tips and tricks
  • Video interview set-ups and light
  • Video editing with Adobe Premiere Pro
  • Basic motion design and animation with Adobe After Effects
  • Storytelling in videos
  • Pre-production processes for video

Teaching and Mentoring

Photography and video is everywhere and with cameras becoming more accessible and easier to operate constantly, one might think it’s not difficult to take good photos anymore. Even smartphones have such great built-in cameras that anybody can take a good photo.

However, really understanding what a good photo is, how to compose a scene and work with the light around you, is more than pressing the shutter button. There’s a difference between taking a few good snapshots and being a skilled photographer.

When it comes to photography and video production, I am self-taught for the most part. I got my first DSLR in 2006 and have learnt A LOT over the years. I worked with the trial-and-error-method and analysed other images to figure out what made them different and better than mine. There is no shortcut to being a great photographer. It’s understanding the craft and consistently practising – same as with every skill you could acquire. But I’m here to help you if you like.

I’ve got over 13 years experience as a camera operator, video editor, motion designer and photographer working with a range of different projects and clients. Yet, I’m by no means the best photographer, videographer or photo/video editor in the world but I know what I’m doing and I’d love to help you get better if you need some support. I offer 1-2-1 training sessions teaching any of the below-mentioned skills and techniques. The training will be tailored to your personal needs.

How does it work?

Send me a message about what you want to talk about or need training in. I’ll ask you a few questions to prepare how I can best help you. We will then arrange a call to talk through your challenges and questions and I will give you clear action points to work on for the future to improve your skills and knowledge.
