I've Received A Gift Voucher, What Do I do Now?

I hope you all had a great Christmas and you're looking forward to 2015 as much as I am!

In the last couple of months I've been sending out Photography Tuition Gift Vouchers to lovely people who were giving them to lucky photographers all over Essex (and beyond), and you were one of those lucky people you may be wondering about the best way to go about using them - well here's what you do...

The voucher entitles you to a 4 hour tuition session, at a location of your choice.  If it's in the Brentwood/Billericay/Chelmsford area, there are no further costs involved, if you'd like to meet outside these areas, I will make a small charge for travelling.

Have a think about what you would like to cover during your time with me, and start making notes of any questions you may have, to ensure you get the most from the session.  Decide what time of year would suit you best, don't feel you have to use the voucher straight away. If you want to wait until Spring or Summer, that's fine - your voucher is valid for two years (check the expiry date on the bottom left-hand corner).

Give me a ring, or email me, to arrange a date, time and location for your session.  Feel free to discuss anything at this time, as it's better that we both know what you would like to get out of the tuition before we get started.  I am available most days of the week, but please be aware that I run workshops and also work for Essex Wildlife Trust on certain days, including weekends, so you may need to be flexible with your chosen date.

I can cover all sorts of requirements during these tuition sessions, whether it's getting to grips with the basics of your camera, or how to approach composition, or more specific themes like close-up or macro photography.

The whole point about 1-2-1 tuition is that you should get as much as possible from the time you have with me, so make sure you ask lots of questions, take lots of notes (even if they're just taken mentally), and above all enjoy yourself!
