 Have you ever held your camera up to your eye, press the shutter button and then viewed the results and felt disappointed? Or perhaps you have, taken a photograph and upon reviewing the results thought, "that's not what I saw”

This event is geared towards those individuals who have a basic understanding of their camera and wish to create more compelling images.

In this unique and informative presentation you will review the basic elements of composition and we will explore and go beyond the "rule of thirds” to examine some of the psychology of the “WOW Factor,  The Command to Look, ”  and the four picture patterns or visual stimulus that catch our attention even before we recognize anything in the photograph In the corresponding photo walk you will put these newly discovered skills to work and join in the discussion and friendly exploration and critique that is to follow.

Private & Semi-Private Photography Lessons

In addition to workshops Larry offers private photography lessons and semi-private instruction, designed to answer your particular questions and help you master your photographic challenges, in a pleasant and enlightening manner.

Attending one of Larry's workshops with other students is certainly a fun and informative way to learn photographic techniques, however everyone is unique in the way they understand and retain information, as is your present skill level. Therefore the specific skills or information you are seeking may never be addressed in a workshop setting.  This is where private photography lessons come into play.  With a combination of one on one instruction, home assignments and subsequent review, plus accompanying Larry in field exercises, you are sure to have all your questions answered, improve your photographic abilities and retain this knowledge. 

Larry can develop a lesson plan based on your individual requirements & present level of experience indicating a time commitment that should adequately cover the skills you are wishing to improve or master. Lessons are quoted on an individual basis, sessions are a minimum of 2 hours, based on an instructional rate of $85.00/hour +HST

The option of semi-private lessons i.e. you and a partner, friend or colleague is available at 100.00/hour ($50.00 each +HST) for the two of you. 

Topics:  Whether you're interested in garnering basic photographic skills, people, pet or sports photography or perhaps wish to obtain some travel tips, Larry is here to assist you in developing your technical abilities and your photographic eye.  Have all your questions answered, drop us an email and let’s get started. These lessons make an excellent gift for the aspiring photographer in your life.
