Everyone learns differently and my favourite part of teaching is helping you find the easiest way to learn for you. I love that lightbulb moment when everything comes together and the penny finally drops. If you want to learn photography you're in the right spot. Working out where to start can be difficult, so if you're feeling a lost. Drop me a message. I'd love to chat.
