Do not wait until they leave for uni!

We've all been there

Precious moments that disappear because your camera wouldn’t take the picture. The shot that could have been sooo nice – but it’s blurry! Trying to get them stand still and failing because it’s simply not in their nature to be still.

Start taking great pictures today

This 4-hour child photography course (with an optional 2-hour extension in case you’d like a full day of training with even more practise) is specifically tuned to the needs of parents with children of all ages: newborns, toddlers or teenagers.

Photography is great fun. Don't let your camera spoil it for you!

Do not let your camera’s buttons and functions intimidate you. Let me show you how you can turn your basic DSLR into a great tool for capturing moments that will make you smile even in ten years’ time.

Is this course for me?

My course is specifically designed for all you moms and dads (or grandmas and granddads) with cute but impatient and fast moving children (or grandchildren) who want to learn how to take sharp pictures in available light without frustrating the kids with your photography!

The wait is over. Do it today!

Put away that smartphone that gives you okay images but with very little creative control. Do it now! And grab that nice DSLR or mirrorless camera that you got for your birthday and learn how to use it. Take higher quality images that capture the fascinating times that you spend with your child every day of their lives.
