Photography Training for Hairdressers
Rachel went on a one to one photography course in a very cool hairdressers in Solihull. Gareth wants to take good pictures in the studio to use commercially, so he bought an Canon 1100D and, with our advice, a 50mm f1.8 lens. The 50mm lens was still in the box when Rachel arrived, so, with models due to arrive in the afternoon, and Gareth shooting on the green square fully auto mode, Rachel had to teach him how to use his camera properly in one morning. This was very pressured stuff, and Rachel’s experience teaching hundreds of photography beginners came into play.
Rachel did some depth of field exercises in the salon, and then when the models arrived could look over Gareth’s shoulder to help him with a few shots.
With Rachel’s guidance, Gareth took some astonishing photos in his salon. Don’t take our word for it – see what you think: There are more on our facebook page.
Rachel was thrilled with Gareth’s pictures, and came home tired but happy – Gareth is now able to produce professional-quality images in-house. This saves money and time, enabling him to get good pictures seen by clients and prospects quickly and cheaply. It’s all part of the Photography Made Simple mission to free photography from the self-serving mystique of professionals. Anyone can do this stuff, with a bit of guidance from us!
