Private Photo Lessons From Edward August Photography

Private lessons are a personalized photography class designed around your needs and learning pace. We will discuss the topics you would like covered as well as those you may not be aware of that will help you with your specific area of focus in photography.

Over the last 19 years I have photographed a wide range of subjects including events such as weddings, baptisms, senior photos, anniversaries, World Series, and Super Bowls.

On my own time I capture time lapses, landscape and macro pictures simply because I really enjoy doing so. It also allows me to continue to sharpen my skills in multiple areas of photography.

All of the above are categorized and edited in three different software programs, Adobe Light Room, Photoshop and Photo Mechanic. I hold lessons in each program as well as almost any photographic category.

The goal of private lessons is to get you more familiar with your camera and the areas you use it in. I want you to feel more comfortable adjusting various settings so that you have more control over the images your camera produces. Understanding why you need to adjust a setting is just as important if not more important than knowing how to do it.

I approach private lessons by first determining your photographic goals. From there I assess your skill level so that I don’t waste any of your time by explaining things you may already be aware of. I’ll ask you what topics you are looking to improve on and then we will begin addressing some of the issues you’ve been experiencing.

Ensuring that you are understanding the information that I provide for you is very important to me. I like to work at your pace and go over settings more than once if needed. I want you to be excited to use your camera.

Lessons can take place at any number of locations. I can come to you, we can go out and take pictures while learning, or meet for a cup of coffee while discussing photo tips and tricks. I’ve even attended sporting events to “teach on the spot” for past clients who’ve had kids playing various sports.

Private lessons are scheduled based off of both your availability and mine. I have available times between Monday and Thursday and limited times on the weekends.

Whether it's photographing your kids at birthday parties, taking marketing shots of your company's product, or capturing live sports, I can help you get to where you want to be with your photographic skill.
