Photography Tutoring

One-on-one Photography Tutoring

Designed for the ultra busy person, who can't make it out to a workshop at the scheduled times, or the hobbyist that feels he/she has gone as far as they can with workshops and wants more customized lessons to improve their photography.  Maybe there's a certain technique you just can't master or get your head around and you want some extra assistance.  Or perhaps you just want some help with processing your images after you've taken them and don't know where to begin, or where to go from here.

Then personal tutoring could be for you!

The fee for individual tutoring is $85/hour (semi-private is $100/hr) with a minimum of 2 hours per session.  Please  contact us to inquire about availability and find out if this is right for you.

What our past clients have said about our tutoring services

“I’ve known Darlene for a while, and have always been impressed and awed with her work – I loved the look, the feel, the colors and the emotions that were portrayed in her amazing photography.  As a newbie in the world of Photography, I was pleased with results I was getting, but still felt that there was something more I could be doing to take my art to a new level.  I was fortunate to spend some time with Darlene where she took me from one end of the spectrum – from technical information about my camera, explaining different techniques, theories and practices with me – to shooting, scouting, post production, touch ups and software tips and tricks.  In our one-on-one tutoring session we worked together through some of my photographs. The knowledge and skill that Darlene was able to teach me – took my art to a completely different level.   Knowing that I took the picture, processed it through – I am amazed at the results, and stunned that my art is looking as amazing as it is.” Zepporoh H.

Q: How knowledgeable was Darlene on photography skills and techniques?
A: Darlene was extremely knowledgeable with skills and techniques. She was able to teach, and explain the different aspects, and when I wasn’t fully grasping the concept of discussion, Darlene was amazing at changing the perspective and explanation so that I was able to understand.
Q: Were things explained in a manner that you could easily understand?
A: Very much so. Darlene was able to explain things to me so that I was able to catch on. The pace of the one-on-one session was perfect. It wasn’t rushed, and when I need more time, or more instruction, Darlene was very patient and understood that I needed to understand more.

Q: Were your expectations met or exceeded?

A: We had joked by the end of the session that my mind was blown. When the session began, I knew I wanted to know everything I could about the different aspects of HDR photography, and when the session ended, I was so amazed at the simplicity that took my photographs from one level to a higher level.
After the session, and after I was able to digest and fully understand and put into practice what Darlene taught me, she continued to give me helpful tips, tricks.
Q: Would you recommend Darlene to someone else wanting photography tutoring? If so, why?
Absolutely!! The value that I felt I received from Darlene, the knowledge, skill and techniques – I haven’t been able to find anywhere else. I’ve looked for courses, seminars – anything that would help – and I was able to get far more from Darlene, then I was able to get anywhere else I’ve looked. Not only did I learn a lot, but when I left I was filled with excitement – knowing that I now had some tools that would take my art higher. I am still awed when I’ve finished my photographs, never thinking – that I was able to produce something that looked that amazing and finished. I highly recommend Darlene for photography tutoring in Edmonton, and will most definitely be back!
