Practical Photography & Business Training

One-to-One Photography Training Sessions and Portfolio Days

One-to-One photography and business training can unlock the next step in your photography adventure.  One-to-One and small group training allows you to get the maximum benefit from your training investment for your photography journey or business. Mykey is renowned for his teaching ability in a variety of fields, but particularly when it comes to photography and the business of marketing and selling photography for weddings and commercial business. Once you have booked your one-to-one training or group session Mykey will contact you to arrange the date and discuss your individual requirements and goals.  Often we ask to analyse your portfolio and website to help plan your training day for you.

Whatever your personal or professional goals, whether you want to learn for business or just for fun as a hobby, we offer one-to-one bespoke photography training days to suit your needs.

Once you have completed a few training sessions (particularly training in Off-Camera-Lighting)  there may be the opportunities to assist at real live weddings as we prefer to recruit from those who have completed our training courses.  At a real wedding you will learn a lot about working with real clients in live situations which is invaluable training.

As a Full-Time and Busy Working Wedding-Photography Studio We Always Have Job Opportunities To Help You Get To The Next Level

What You Can Expect From Your One-to-One Online Session

After we have arranged a mutually agreeable time and date we'll ask you for some information so we can better prepare for your sessionDo let us know your specific goals and requirements if you have them, or if you're not sure what you need specifically we can discuss the most appropriate content for your online photo training.

What You Can Expect From a Half/Full Day Training or Portfolio Session

For Training Days we'll discuss what area of your photography or business you want to advance and go from thereFor example, for posing and working with models we might suggest a photo studio session, for off-camera-flash we might suggest a bridal session outdoors, and for business training we would suggest a sit-down environment for you to learn.

Similarly for Portfolio Days we'll work with you to create the imagery you are looking to reproduce for yourself with your clients, and have a wide range of locations and themes to suggest.

Photography Training for Hobby & Fun

Many Photography enthusiasts are keen to buy new equipment (we all want that new super fast lens right?!?) but less quick to invest in quality training.  If there is one thing I would tell myself if I could go back in time and tell myself one thing when I bought my first camera - it would be "get some quality training".  You'll find the more you learn, the more you understand even beyond what you have learnt, and your photography will improve exponentially.  Trust me, you won't be sorry...

Photography Training for Building Your Business

Our photography training sessions are an ideal way to build your business by learning new techniques and creative styles to add the wow factor to your wedding photography, and learning them in a practical way that can actually be applied to your business and events, allowing you to create your own stunning wedding photographs in the real world.

Why Our Training is Above & Beyond Other Photography Training

In a nutshell: we are an active and successful full-time wedding photography studio - and the overwhelming majority of the imagery you see on our website are REAL CLIENTS at REAL EVENTS. As such, you can trust that the techniques we use and knowledge we impart are based on 'actual weddings' with 'real people', garnered from regular interactions with real people. This means the things we teach are 'achievable' in real world scenarios, not just with models in perfect-scenario duck-shoots and plenty of time, things that you'll never be able to reproduce with real clients at weddings or commercial client shoots.

Training with us is training with international level photographers who are still active in the commercial world of making money by making photographs for real clients, as such we know what works and what doesn'tWhat sells and what doesn't.  And more importantly, we know how to give you the skills you need to advance as a photographer / business, not just photography-hacks that look pretty on your camera's back-screen as well as business gimmicks that don't last beyond a year or two.

Topics Covered

Basic Photography

Whether it's learning the fundamentals of digital photography, figuring out the menu system of your DSLR, or mastering the art of composition - we've got you covered.  Take that huge leap from battling with your little mirror-box to creating the purposeful and fantastic imagery you want to.

Wedding & Event Photography

Widely seen as the most diverse and one of the most difficult styles of photography, weddings and events demand a lot of an artist when trying to tell yours and your client's story in the most impactful and artistic way possible.  Dive into the incredibly fulfilling field of wedding and events with confidence by mastering the basics.

Lighting in Photography

There is a saying that to non-martial artists a 'black belt' means excellence, whilst to any martial artist worth their salt they know that a black belt is still a beginner belt.  They've learnt all the basics, but now the long road begins to master them. So this is true of photography, learning how to use a camera and having all the gear as well as a working knowledge of art and composition in photography is only the beginning...  Only by mastering lighting, will you master photography...

Whether it's Off Camera Flash, reflectors, scrims, or even just an iPhone torch, there's a lot to learn but once you've mastered lighting in photography - you'll make that leap from 'taking pictures' to 'making pictures'.  From the nervous-ness of hoping you will make nice photos, to the confidence of delivering professional results no matter what situation you are faced with.

Business & Branding - Taking Your Photography to the Next Level

Maybe you are thinking of taking that next big leap in your photography journey, or perhaps you already have a photography business and want to compete at a higher level, or perhaps you are already established but are looking for a refresh in what is a stagnant market of imitators and hacks.  We've got you covered.  Get in touch so we can help you by giving you the tools and advice you need to make that next big step...

Posing Real People & Working with Models

Unfortunately real clients are not all fully trained professional models with years of posing experience and camera confidence.  Indeed, we find that most models are nowhere near that level either.  As a photographer it can be incredibly frustrating to achieve the results you want when working with real people and even models.  Most training out there deals with what pretty pictures can be made but don't delve into the far more useful skill of communicating and working with a subject to achieve the imagery you want to achieve.  Contact us to discuss training in one of the most crucial yet neglected fields of photography.

Photoshop & Lightroom Editing

Don't let your software be a bar between you and the results you want, and definitely don't let image editing take away any more precious time of your life from being with your family and friends than it should.  Whether it's Lightroom workflow, the fundamentals of image editing, to learning how to make advanced photoshop edits quickly and easily, we've got you covered.

Note: The above topics are starting points for your learning adventure, and there are many facets to the art of photography that are all intertwined in various ways.  As such the above are just broad starting points, so if there is something else you have in mind do get in touch today!
