Private Canon Camera / Photography Training Cape Town

Photography Training / Workshops Cape Town
I regularly facilitate private Canon Camera and Photography tutoring / training sessions in Milnerton, Cape Town.

Tailor-made (individual) learning programmes are prepared for specific Canon EOS DSLR camera requirements; with the goal of providing a better understanding of EOS camera menus / settings, the exposure triangle and various photographic genre applications.

Any Canon EOS body / lens combination is suitable for most of the training sessions. During initial contact I will determine the learner's current skills, Canon EOS system and other learning / photographic requirements.

Training / demonstrations are done on the client's own Canon EOS bodies attached to various Canon EF / other brand lenses covering wide-angle to zoom focal lengths.
