My ambitions are pretty simple. I like to eat good food, walk around London, and take photos of the stuff I like. (I have this parenting gig on the side that is marginally fulfilling.)
I gave up hauling my dslr around with me a while ago; too heavy, too obvious, and too much effort if I’m mosly taking photos that are consumables, viewed on a tiny screen. So, those of you that have read my Instagram bio realize that all of my photos are shot with the handy phone in my pocket. It’s an amazing tool, and I’ve learned a lot about what works with mobile photography and what doesn’t. There are definitely a few key changes you can make that drastically improve the quality of your photos, and I like chatting with people about it – there are no big mysteries!
Many people have asked me about filters, cameras, where to go in London, how to take better photos, and now I’m offering one-on-one sessions where we can talk about all the things, chasing carbs and facades together! A 2-hour session with me starts with an hour of photo walk in a cool London neighborhood, while we discuss mobile photography. The second hour we will find a cozy coffee shop to review photos, talk Instagram, and discuss the details of editing. It will also be an opportunity for me to review your Instagram account and give you some feedback.
The goal is for you to walk away with photos you’re excited to share on Instagram, gain a better understanding of your phone camera’s capability, and build confidence in your own style and focus. Most importantly, you'll get to see firsthand how many croissants I can eat.
These two hours are easy to customize to suit your needs and interests*. It's also possible to double up and book a walking workshop with a friend (or a nice stranger). Each walk will be different, depending on the information you provide while booking. The starting location for your walk will be provided via email, and my availability is shown on a calendar once you select the type of walk.
Alternately, if you'd just like to discuss your Instagram profile and strategy, I'm available for 1 hour consultations. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about the walks, or if you're interested in an option or a date that's not listed below.
UPDATE: During December and January, I will only be available for Instagram consultations.
*Please note: this is NOT a guided walking tour of London. I can’t provide you with accurate historical information, but I will most definitely find pop culture references only tangentially related.
