Expo­sure Ther­a­py’s pri­vate pho­tog­ra­phy lessons are pre­cise­ly tai­lored to teach you what you want, wher­ev­er you want. Select a top­ic from any of our reg­u­lar work­shops, or sug­gest your own.


About our private photography lessons

Every per­son learns pho­tog­ra­phy in a unique way. Those that pre­fer to learn online can face con­tra­dict­ing advice from dubi­ous sources. Although reli­able resources exist, you have to find them. Books offer a wealth of accu­rate infor­ma­tion but lack hands-on guid­ance and can’t address indi­vid­ual con­cerns or points of con­fu­sion as they arise.

Expo­sure Ther­a­py’s pri­vate pho­tog­ra­phy cours­es are in-per­son, one-on-one class­es cus­tomized to your learn­ing needs. You’ll have your pho­to teacher’s com­plete atten­tion and be able to ask ques­tions as they arise and receive swift respons­es. We can cus­tomize your pri­vate pho­tog­ra­phy class to your spe­cif­ic needs, or it can fol­low one of our exist­ing pho­tog­ra­phy lessons plans.

Some stu­dents pre­fer an expe­ri­en­tial pho­to ‘safari’ where they learn new tech­niques or hone exist­ing ones prac­tic­ing in the wilds of the urban jun­gle. It’s your per­son­al course and learn­ing expe­ri­ence, and you call the shots.

How it works

We’ve worked hard to make book­ing a pri­vate pho­tog­ra­phy les­son with Expo­sure Ther­a­py smooth and has­sle-free. Here’s how it works:

  1. Select the dura­tion of your per­son­al les­son.
  2. Explain what you’d like to learn, pro­pose three appoint­ment times (in order of pref­er­ence), and include your desired loca­tion in Toron­to or the GTA.
  3. Enter your pay­ment infor­ma­tion and place the order.
  4. We’ll reply with­in the busi­ness day to con­firm our avail­abil­i­ty and ask fol­low-up ques­tions, as need­ed.
  5. After con­firm­ing the top­ic, appoint­ment, and loca­tion, we’re set and ready to go.

We’ll issue a refund for 100% of your pay­ment if our sched­ules don’t align.

Available topics

Our per­son­al pho­tog­ra­phy lessons are flex­i­ble, and you can select from a vari­ety of top­ics. For exam­ple, if you pre­fer a struc­tured expe­ri­ence, choose a per­son­al les­son based on one of our exist­ing work­shops (101–203). Beyond that, a per­son­al pho­tog­ra­phy les­son can fea­ture any top­ic you want. Some ideas include:

  • How to oper­ate your cam­era (menus, mode dials, but­tons, chang­ing lens­es, etc.)
  • Improve your trav­el pho­tog­ra­phy
  • Adobe Light­room: pho­to orga­ni­za­tion and image pro­cess­ing
  • Read­ing a scene and inter­pret­ing light
  • Long expo­sure class: tech­niques and prac­tice
  • Expo­sure tech­niques for dynam­ic and high-con­trast scenes
  • On-cam­era flash pho­tog­ra­phy class­es:  tech­niques and oper­a­tion
  • Off-cam­era flash pho­tog­ra­phy class­es: (stu­dio strobes, mod­i­fiers, etc.)
  • Exter­nal light meters for dig­i­tal or film pho­tog­ra­phy
  • Equip­ment con­sul­ta­tions

We’re more than hap­py to con­sid­er dif­fer­ent sug­ges­tions. How­ev­er, since our goal is to pro­vide you with a qual­i­ty learn­ing expe­ri­ence, we only teach top­ics with which we’re entire­ly famil­iar.

What to wear

Much like our stan­dard work­shops, our pri­vate pho­tog­ra­phy lessons fea­ture out­door exer­cis­es where you learn to apply the the­o­ret­i­cal con­cepts into prac­tice. Mon­i­tor the weath­er fore­cast and ensure you dress appro­pri­ate­ly for the conditions—especially on cold days.2 Please note that the lithi­um bat­ter­ies pow­er­ing your cam­era may exhib­it dimin­ished pow­er out­put in cold con­di­tions. When sub­ze­ro air tem­per­a­tures are fore­cast for the day of your work­shop, we rec­om­mend bring­ing two or more cam­era bat­ter­ies.
