Now, this is an interesting concept on offer if you're looking for some photography tuition. How about hiring the tutor and you get to choose the location or destination that you would like to go for your lesson. This is how Professional Photographer Mark Rayner conducts his "Tailored Photography Adventure".

This is a great idea as you might have always wanted to go to a special location at a certain time to photograph a sunset, sunrise, particular rock formations, landmark or anything other. Why not grab a couple of friends and spread the cost and learn together.

Lessons are offered at all levels, so no need to be shy and if you're experienced, you might be surprised at just what else you might be able to pick up and learn. There is always another level to reach in photography. You might discover a setting on your camera you didn't know existed or how it worked. Discovering new tips or techniques may assist you with your photography practices.

So, who is your 'Tailored Tutor', Mark Rayner?
An AIPP member (Australian Institute of Professional Photography), Mark is an experienced wedding and portrait photographer who also has a commercial client list. He is also an expert in digital post processing. As a relaxed and easy communicator he is easily able to impart his expert knowledge to the benefit of his participants.

What else does Tailored Photography Tuition offer?

Digital post processing workshops. Mark, an expert digital workflow process guru, runs small workshops for up to 8 people. They are good value and you get to learn simple and effective processing techniques like "how to add punch" to your photos. Programmes used for processing include Bridge, Camera Raw and the use of Lightroom. Generally held at Newstead House, Brisbane. Find further information here.

Courses include options like, Mountain to Beach (Sunshine Coast), Australia Zoo, Mountain Experience (O'Rielly's), a half day focus on Macro workshop, (Mt Cootha) and a night time 'city light' option. You will learn, have fun and be leaving with more skills and ideas to put into your own photography practice. View the article on Trekabout Photography workshop and courses here.

Weekend and extended workshop options are also offered ranging from 3-8 days, including destinations such as Girraween National Park amongst granite landscape and abundant wildflowers.

In summary, there is so much experience, knowledge, hard work and destination research that goes into all that is offered between Mark from 'Tailored Tuition' together with 'Trekabout Photography workshops and courses' (with business partner Michael Snedic).
