Individual Coaching


» deutsch

Group workshops are great, but sometimes a custom-made individual coaching session is exactly what you need. Get that refresher or something that's tailored exactly to your needs.


Q: How many people in an individual coaching session?
A: Just you. Or you and a friend or partner. Or you and a spouse. I'm happy to extend the session to two people at no extra cost.

Q: In which form will an individual coaching session take place?
A: I do live sessions that take place face to face. I can also hold an online session via Skype or Google Hangout.

Q: Where does a face-to-face coaching session take place?
A: You can either come to the Viewfinder Villa in Hannover, Germany, or I can come to a place of your choice. Depending on distance and schedule, travel and accommodation cost might apply. With enough lead time, I might also be able to do a session in conjunction with my travel plans (see my schedule here)

Q: How long is a coaching session?
A: The minimum face-to-face session length is half a day (online can be shorter). A full day is better though and there is no real upper limit. Private photo tours to a destination of your choice are another option. So is a coaching weekend for your photo club or a tailor-made workshop for your corporation. Let's talk.

Q: What topics can you cover?
A: If it's related to photography, it's within my scope. The range goes from photography fundamentals to portrait photography, street, architecture, landscape or studio photography, effective use of flash and event photography. Post production and digital workflow, controlling light and shadow, image composition, color management and printing. I cover film photography too. Not sure what you need? Let's find out together.

Q: What languages do you speak?
A: I'm a native German speaker, I'm fluent in English.

Q: I'm a beginner. Does an individual coaching session make sense for me?
A: Especially new photographers tend to form early photography habits that get in the way later. With an individual coaching session you can learn the basics and get on track for an excellent photographic development in the future.

Q: How much does it cost?
A: Each coaching session is individually tailored to the needs of the recipient(s). It's impossible to give you a definite price, but ping me and we'll figure it out.
