Online Photographers Training
Reach your potential from the comfort of your own home.
Spaces are released every week in a rolling month-by-month format.
If the calendar below doesn’t allow you to select a date or change months, it is because all future one-to-one spaces are booked out. In peak season for workshops and speaking internationally, spaces are fewer and as such there can be long waits for the next rolling opening to show. If you check back here on Friday evenings, the next available Friday’s space may have opened up.
About the one-to-one range:
Whether you are brand new to Adobe Lightroom Classic or you’re looking to up-skill your workflow in Adobe Photoshop, if you have a laptop and are ready to improve, we’ll probably work well together!
To complete these sessions, you’ll need a laptop, Adobe programs (Lightroom Classic and/or Photoshop), a reliable internet connection and a RAW file that is technically sound (sharp in the right places!).
We’ll connect initially on Zoom and then you’ll allow Jess to have remote access to your computer via Teamviewer (also free). This allows us to very quickly and very easily control your screen to show you a particular tool or technique instead of continually saying “up a bit, a bit more, to the left” on repeat!
By the end of an editing session, you will have, completely solo, completed specific editing techniques to add dimension, flair and finesse to your own work. You can opt instead for Jess to work on your file whilst you take notes, it’s up to you!
“I’ve used Photoshop for 12 years, Lightroom for over 7 years and edit most days of the week in some way, shape or form! I have great success using this format for editing tuition online!”
Editing one-to-one results below. 1hr. RAW to jaw-dropping!
An enormous field to cover but in brief, individuals usually choose this option if they are starting a photography business and want to get off the ground well, or if they have an existing photography business that isn’t performing particularly well.
Usually, we cover business structure, pricing, IPS, marketing, SEO, social media, portfolio reviews/strategies for growth and product choices, but really this can be anything you need it to be.
“As well as having operated a successful photography business for over 6 years, I also handily have a CIM Dip in Strategic Marketing and regularly work on both small and international scale marketing and strategic business projects for both photography and non-photography businesses.
The largest budget I’ve ever personally managed for a single campaign is £250,000. Return on investment and profitability for you is a priority for me.”
Portfolio Review (Deep Critique) One-to-Ones
Whether your goals are to take amazing photographs of your children or to win an international photography title, this one-to-one option has the capacity to give you specific, actionable pointers of what you can improve to get to the next step.
Usually, we look at your portfolio or the results of a single shoot – a collection of images (10 minimum, no maximum!) – and critically assess them against each other and your goals. The images could be RAW files, finished pieces or something different entirely.
This isn’t always an easy listen, but if you come in with an open mind and grit to improve, you’ll take more away from this one to one option than probably any other. Remember, Jess will be honest and frank – prep yourself with a notepad and pen beforehand.
“Although not a seasoned print comper, I’ve had a pretty solid season in 2020 taking the top awards with multiple organisations in both monthly and annual awards with pets and other subjects too. I have an eye for fine detail and my microstock background has left me with an uncanny ability to spot technical faults. I try to be kind and fair with my portfolio crit and it is always about how to improve, not what you’ve done wrong.”
Excellent. Very helpful.
I asked Jess to review my most recent portfolio shots in order to get an expert view on the level of my work. Jess gave me detailed feedback and very useful guidance on how and where I could improve.
A very worthwhile experience. I expect to book another review when I have enhanced my work. Thanks Jess.
1-2-1 business session
Thanks Jess for my very first 1-2-1 with you. I needed help with a special project I am trying to get sorted, and you have been a massive help! Already booked my next 1-2-1 and can’t wait, but I will have to! The next available one was February next year 👀
These sessions sell out like hot cakes haha, and I can see why!
Thanks Jess, I feel so much more confident with your advice and help 💗 you rock!
THIRD One to One
It’s my THIRD one on a one with Jess, and if this doesn’t say how much I love my sessions with her, I don’t know what will!
The first two times were a half day in person 1 to 1 from Jess. And third a online 1 to 1 editing.
and because I don’t live in the UK, we had to do it through zoom.
I highly highly recommend it to anyone interested or considering. Jess ALWAYS went above and beyond what she is supposed to do each time and even went past the stipulated timing.
She also has so much patience. I feel safe being around Jess, I never feel judged or feel silly asking her questions. And that says alot!
I know after every session, I will leave being more confident and motivated about improving my work and that’s why I just keep booking sessions with her! It’s the BEST money I’ve ever spent. (not even equipments, but this!)
Great business one to one
I had a business one to one with Jess to get some feedback and ideas. I came away with so many things on my to-do list! Thanks so much Jess,
it was money very well spent!
Honest and valuable feedback
Jess gives honest and valuable feedback based on your preferences whether you take photos as a hobby, or run a photography business, or you plan to submit photos to photography competitions. I have already achieved several successes in different international competitions following her advice.
