BOOK A PRIVATE LESSON WITH DANNY
Why Choose A Private Lesson?
If you are looking to improve your photography or photoshop skills, then maybe one of Danny Irvine’s 1-on-1 Landscape Photography, Aerial Photography or Photoshop Lessons is for you. When Danny was starting out he found that learning from books or attending workshops with large groups was not the best way for him. What he did find was that when he got some 1-on-1 help it really made a difference. All of the attention was on him and all of the lessons were focussed on what he needed to learn. If this sounds like you, just pick which program suits you and hit the ‘Book Your Place Now’ button to get started.
Location Of Lessons
Landscape photography can be an amazingly satisfying way to spend your time. Capturing a beautiful beach scene or an epic mountain range can give you a real sense of adventure. Being able to capture the best photo possible is what we chase as photographers and booking a lesson with Danny will get you a few steps closer to being able to do that. We have some of Australia’s most beautiful coastline right here in my hometown. There is no way that we can’t capture some amazing photos together.
Aerial photography is magical in my opinion. The experience of being up above everyone and seeing things from an entirely new perspective gets me all excited. Depending on your style of shooting, you can create some really beautiful abstract images. The first step is getting up there and making sure that you have everything set and ready to go. Helicopters are not cheap so you want to make the most of it when you get up there. Theis aerial photography lesson will do just that. We’ll spend some time making sure you gear is set up right and then we’ll get the doors of the chopper and get up there.
Capturing the photo is really on the first part of the equation. If you truly want your photos to be amazing you will need to learn how to use some sort of post-production software to help you do that. Post-production is the darkroom of the digital age. Ansel Adams was a master in the darkroom and you must be a master of post-production. I chose Photoshop as I believe it is more powerful than the many other software’s that are available today. I will take you through my process step by step so you can see how it all works. You will leave with a great understanding of how to process your own image to make them sing.

What Our Customers Are Saying
Don’t just take it from us, let our customers do the talking!
“Hi Danny, I wanted to say a big thank you for the Photoshop Course. I was really impressed with the setup and thought the whole weekend was loads of fun. I learned heaps and it’s nice to understand Layers finally. Now I just need to find the patience to put it all into practice, as I have used Lightroom for so long, so the transition to PS will slow me down a lot. I know it will be wort it with practice”.Sonia - Sydney
“Hey Danny, I’m just sending you a big thumbs up for your Landscape workshop. What a weekend. I was really happy with how the whole thing was put together. I learned so much and so good to finally get my head around the whole exposure thing with f/stops and so on. All I have to do now is put it all into practice. I’m already looking forward to doing your next Photoshop Workshop”.Peter - Newcastle
