1-2-1 Personal Photography and Business Tuition
All Things Photography and myself, Nick Stubbs, are now offering one to one, intensive photography and business training courses in Dorset.
I have found that after teaching many group courses over the years and a growing number of one to one photography courses, the people that attend the latter always leave that bit more informed.
Obviously, as a student, you receive 100% of my attention giving you a full, intensive days training on anything you want from the list below as I am able to tailor the course specifically to address whatever it is you are looking to learn. These areas include:
- Basic DSLR Training
- Advanced DSLR Training and Techniques
- Wedding Photography
- Stock Photography
- Lighting – Natural, Studio and Off Camera Flash
- Website Creation – SEO (Search Engine Optimisation), Internet Marketing Design
- Marketing and Advertising
- Business Advice and Management
Students coming to our one to one photography and business courses can “pick and mix” items from the above list and build the course around that. You tell me what sections you want to learn, along with current knowledge and experience levels and I will take you to the next level and beyond.
The course can be as long as you like, one day, two days or a week, it is up to you and how much you want to learn. Maybe you simply want to improve your photography skills with your DSLR or bridge camera? Maybe you are looking to make extra money by shooting stock photography? Maybe you want to start your own wedding photography business where most of the above would be useful.
Whatever you want to do, get in touch in the first instance and we can take it from there.
We have accommodation in Weymouth for you to stay in at the Beachcomber Guest House right on the beach in Weymouth and we have enough kit and studio equipment plus the beautiful Dorset coast to keep you busy for as long as you like.
Course attendees, if interested in these areas, receive included in the price:
- Wedding Photography Blueprint DVD’s – Value £75
- How to Sell Stock Photos eBook – Value £30
- The Business of Photography eBook – Value £30
- Free Access to ATP Members – Value £40
Here is what some recent attendees had to say about the one to one photography course:
“I recently attended a one day intensive course with Nick to help me develop ideas about setting up a photography business, learn more about shooting for stock and to generally improve my photography skills. I couldn’t have spent the time better. Nick is a fantastic teacher, patient, incredibly knowledgeable and really easy to talk to.
The day was entirely tailored to cater for my individual needs and learning requirements and we covered a huge range of areas from using off-camera flash to buying new kit and setting up websites. I came away from my course fired up with enthusiasm, with loads of new ideas, knowledge and determination. I can’t recommend one of Nick’s courses enough.” – Josephine Tunney, Glasgow
“Was brilliant to meet you and your family too, thank you so much for looking after us, it really was hugely appreciated.
I can’t tell you enough how much I enjoyed the course, it was worth the money 10 times over – really, really brilliant. I feel that I’ve learnt more than I ever could have hoped for and, even more amazingly for me – retained some of it! The one-to-one choice was definitely the right one for me. It was a real privilege to have a professional’s attention for two full days! I’ve come away feeling so ready for making the next steps in starting my business that finding myself sat behind my desk at work is very frustrating!” – Megan Turner, Lincoln
“I recently spent a fantastic day on a one to one photography course with Nick Stubbs. The day was tailored to my needs via a series of emails and a preliminary meeting and because of this I really felt I got everything I wanted out of the day. We managed to fit in a mixture of Q and A, demonstration and hands-on practical work and the opportunity to learn from such an experienced photographer (and good teacher!) was priceless.
In fact, I soon realised I should have booked myself on this course the minute I bought a DSLR. I left with a real feeling of confidence about not only the practical side of taking great photographs, but the direction in which I wanted to take my hobby in terms of turning it into a profession in the future.
Not only is Nick a great photographer, he’s also an enthusiastic mentor and a good guy to hang out with! ” – Ben Wasserberg, London
“I did a one to one course with Nick Stubbs which was aimed at getting equipped to start the foundations of my photography business. The areas we looked at were stock, business/marketing, weddings, a couple of other opportunities, and work flow.
I found Nick’s enthusiasm infectious and his sense of humour on a par with mine which made an intense day go by like a breeze. We covered all the topics I wanted and have come away inspired, confident and ready to invest my time and effort over the next few years to create a solid photography business.
If you are interested in any of his courses I would highly recommend starting with www.atpmembers.com and then getting in touch with him for a one to one or group course. Thanks Nick and I look forward to seeing you again very soon!” Todor, London
“Go on, give one-to-one photography training a try, it worked for me!
Having bought a DSLR camera and a selection of lenses last year I have struggled to really maximise their use and understand all the settings or even the basics. I knew I needed help to unveil this mist of confusion and to unlock the mystery of my equipment.
I had tried group training but the group was too big and I got lost in the variety of experience and came away none the wiser; so I opted for one-to-one training with Nick Stubbs, I liked his work and what he had to say about his training.
I spent the day really delving into exactly what my issues were and so really felt that the training was bespoke to my actual needs. My goal was to come away clear in the use of my camera and confident enough to shoot good pictures.
The training I received was well paced and matched my learning needs, Nick was observant and responsive to my questions. He showed intuition by spotting when I needed extra time on something in particular or a different explanation.
His training style was relaxed and easy to follow with a good ability to adapt and demonstrate points to clearly illustrate them. Additionally there were numerous invaluable hints and tips shared that will no doubt be used to full effect.
Nick is clearly well versed in the professional delivery of various types of photography and was able to use his experience to encourage and inspire me to persevere with hopefully turning a tentative new comer to digital photography into a professional photographer – one day!
At the end of the day’s training I came away with the mist lifted, the mystery unlocked and very enthusiastic to practice, practice, practice!
So go on give one-to-one training with Nick a try it really did work for me.” – Christine, Sussex
Due to the nature of these intensive courses and the full attention you receive, obviously we have to charge a little more than our group courses but I can guarantee you will leave feeling ready to let loose on the photography world! Each full day will last up to 9 hours with lunch included:
4 Hours – £250 (No accommodation)
One day – £450 395 (One nights B and B included)

Once the course is complete, you have full access to my personal mobile number and email address as well as full contact through ATP Members where you can even have your images critiqued professionally. If you are interested, please get in touch soon.
There is no time like the present to start to get more out of what you really love to do whether on a personal or business level.
All the best and look forward to meeting you,
