“The only way that we can live, is if we grow. The only way that we can grow is if we change. The only way that we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open. Do it. Throw yourself.” ― C. JoyBell C.

"Understanding and chasing the light is more valuable than any camera in hand" — Vernon Chalmers

Vernon Chalmers Photography Training 
Milnerton, Cape Town and Cape Peninsula

Over the past ten years I've had the privilege of assisting and training hundreds of local, national and international photographers, either via group workshops, during private one-on-one training sessions and / or online support on my website or via my Facebook Pages.

As a professional photographer, educator and skills development facilitator my main training priority is to provide a quality hands-on learning experience to the new and developing photographer in his or her photographic journey across the different genres I facilitate.

It is my mission to assist the new and / or more experienced enthusiast and professional photographer with technical information and associated photographic techniques. It is essential for me that the student (over time) develop a true understanding of the journey mastering the art and science of creative image making (irrespective of Canon camera / lens).

My inherent training philosophy is that a major component of any level of learning is the provision of relevant information, answering learner questions and to facilitate (and demonstrate) photography learning outcomes until the photographer is comfortable in applying new information, knowledge and skills in the field. 

No previous delegate or client should hesitate to contact me for any information or advice they may require in terms of current or future camera requirements and exposure / focus settings et al.

The majority of this information sharing sessions are via private email requests and / or Facebook private group postings and private messages.
