We are a company of trained, experienced and practicing photographers. We are also seasoned teachers. We studied and taught at photography schools for years on end and now are helping, in small steps, to endorse a School of Photography of our times. The end tail of 20th century saw technological advents (notably digital cameras) that blurred the line between the Photographer and the average individual. We, in paying homage to the legacy, aim to contribute to legions of up and coming buds whose work and leisure in taking pictures will shape the 21st century photography. We foster photographic craftsmanship by sharing our technical forte with raw talents from all walks of life. We then mentor our clients toward intellectual mastery of the Photographic Arts and the capacity to shed the Paradigm Old in constant renewal. Our foremost service is photography training, one-on-one or seldom through group classes. We deliver private tutoring sessions at our clients' location and convenience. We are a for-profit company. We offer private premium photography training at rates that are only comparable to those of crowded classes in vocational schools. Some of our clients may be eligible for student loans.
We also assist our clients with other aspects of photography practice. This may include offering expert opinion (or undertaking) on choosing the right equipment, photo shoot planning, lighting and styling, photo editing, quality printing, publication, art direction and managing presentation, gallery exhibition and online or press distribution. Our clients include both photo enthusiasts and the aspiring photographers.
We design photography-training packages to accommodate our clients' intent and budget. We assist our clients to choose the best quality camera /equipment for their intended use and within their decided price range. We provide basic to advanced training on our clients' own cameras in one-on-one session(s) at their convenient time and location. We offer continued support to those clients' who choose to take better pictures, edit photos for better prints and /or properly format photos to be posted on the Internet. For those clients who are professionally inspired we offer long-term syllabus-based photography training that leads to a college diploma and /or professional recognition. We also have extended packages that prepare our clients to enter photography programs in colleges and universities if they so incline.
