Photographer

Adult learning

Online and face to face lessons available for all ages and abilities

Subjects covered

I have eight years' experience as a professional photographer. As well as photographing, I am also a tutor in photography and creative media. I teach evening classes both at Greater Brighton Metropolitan College and on a freelance basis. 

My specialist subjects are photography, moving image, Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator and Premiere Pro. I also have experience with Textiles, Art and Graphic Design. 

I believe creative arts can make a huge difference to our lives and well-being, and over the recent lockdown, I created a creative challenge called "Let's get creative in a crisis" where I gave a new theme each week, allowing participants to take this in any direction they wished. This was proven successful and made everyone have something to focus on during this time.

There are so many ways to teach a subject. As I am creative media focused, I find visuals can really help focus and support learning. I am very patient, open and personable, and happy to go over anything you are unsure of until it makes sense! If there is a specific way you feel you learn best, I am happy to adapt to your needs!

Sessions can be both online and face to face. I am based in West Sussex, therefore

face to face teaching must be in this area and surroundings.
