One To One Tuition

Maybe you’re a beginner and you want to learn fast. Maybe you’re already a handy photographer and you’d like to go pro. Either way, nothing can elevate your camera skills like the undivided attention of an experienced professional.

In this course I lay bare all I’ve learnt in a successful career spanning more than two decades. I put it all out there for your benefit. As you will be the only student, what we choose to focus on is entirely up to you. Sessions can be tailor made to fit your specific needs and interests.

As we will be working a one-to-one, I can give you the time to answer any questions you want. No topic is off the table. Once you have given me a clear brief about what you want most need from training, I’ll design the lessons you need to get there. Sessions can be tailored to include day trips, business training, or small group sessions where I work with each individual in turn. You can opt for a single session or arrange multiple bookings so I can guide your development into photographic legend.

Previous Student Testimonials

Steve Marsh, Stamford

I have learnt a lot from James on his DSLR learning courses. He simplifies the technical jargon and concentrates on what you need to know to continually improve your photos. He uses his experience as a photographer to encourage you to try new things but, most of all, keeping it fun!. 

Gina Rymer, Grimsthorpe  

Just had the most amazing day having one to one tuition with James, for anyone wondering if they would benefit from such a day, trust me you would, me my dog, my camera, and a man with amazing patience, I cannot believe how much I learnt in a few hours, as well as on a technical level, I also learnt to have a little faith in myself. Thanks James, I don't think you have seen the last of me !!

Sue West, Stamford

James has the ability to make photographers with any level of ability feel at ease. 

When I first met James, I didn't know what an F stop was. With a lot of patience and down-to-earth explanations, I no longer use auto, and I've been inspired by James to try different techniques, and produced the type of material that I didnt know was possible or existed before.  

James appreciates effort, encourages his students, offers constructive criticism, and pushes to experiment with new ideas, and take knowledge to the next level. 

Whilst time with James IS a 'Master/Professional Photographer - Student set-up', it soon feels as though you're spending time with a mate,  learning about how to get the best out of your camera & surroundings.
