Our contact courses are shown in the table below this text.

Each course on offer is broken-up into segments so that you can grasp and then master each core concept without information-overload.

As each new concept is imparted, you are given ample opportunity to do practical assignment work to cement the techniques involved.

Teaching sessions for part-time contact courses take place by arrangement to suit your schedule on weekdays, in the early evenings from 5.30 or 6.00 pm to 7.30 or 8.00 pm, Saturday mornings 10-12 or on Sunday afternoons between 2 and 4 p.m. The longest part-time course involves 4 sessions of 2 hours each. Thus your investment in time is roughly 8-10 hours.

All contact training is on a one-to-one basis.

At the end of some of the courses you are asked to present a portfolio of work that demonstrates your understanding and application of the concepts taught. Upon presentation of a successful portfolio, you will be awarded your course certificate. (Portfolios are retained for quality assurance records).

In summary, perhaps it is apposite to quote a past delegate about our approach. (See more feedback via the feedback button above)

"I was expecting tons of jargon and had visions of having to brush off my rusty old high school mathematics and physics knowledge. 

I was pleasantly surprised at the easy understanding and warm-hearted approach I encountered. You made it all so easy to understand and gave great practical advice from start to finish. I especially value the individual one on one approach. 

Perhaps you should not advertise photography courses.

I think you should say you give a course in what actually matters.

Using only the things that matter and leaving your mythical camera engineer (Mr Yakahisha or whatever you call him...) to do the rest I am getting consistently great results and the value for money you offer is amazing.

I am so happy I found your academy. Thank you."
