Finding your voice - Online custom photography and styling course

Photography is a journey. It is a visual story-telling. Just like the English language has 24 alphabets, from which we can weave stories, emotions, communication and everything we want to express. Similarly, in photography, we have the camera and the lens from which we can narrate our visual stories.

Why do we need to narrate stories? We are natural storytellers, have you noticed how you narrate a small incident to your best friend, it is like a story. Starting from your voice to facial expressions to the words.

Why do some photographs look so beautiful and tend to be like by everyone? There is more to the photograph than the objects in it, something that touches our emotional core. This visual communication is called visual storytelling.

How do you find your voice? Just like you, your voice is unique too. We all have a face, hands, legs but yet no two people are the same. Even identical twins have different likes, views and so many things that make them unique. What is your visual identity?

Learn how to find your voice as you take your work to the next level. Food photography and styling can be intimidating with camera settings, lenses, light, styling, storytelling, colors, composition,  framing, angle, the possibilities are endless. I hand-hold you to find your own style, from camera settings to styling, to lighting and editing. Photography has brought so much meaning in my life, it really is not rocket science, I would love to share my passion with you. It gives me great joy to see you hone your skills and find yourself through photography.

Each class is custom built for your needs, it is not a one size fits all. I make the time to custom design the class by asking you the right questions. Each class is 75 min long and is conducted via Skype/Face time. US$95/class. List of classes open from Feb-May 2019
