Individual Digital Photography Lessons With Mark Holmes

I have been teaching photography classes in San Diego since 2007 and am the author of Digital SLR Photography for Dummies eLearning Kit. For people who have a busy schedule and just can't make my regular workshops, I offer individual and private digital photography classes in San Diego, tailored to your specific needs. Please book well in advance to avoid disappointment.

My digital photography classes are aimed at people who don't like to read camera manuals or don't want to sit at a computer to learn digital photography. Sometimes you may have a particular problem that you can't seem to find or understand the answer to. Maybe you aren't happy with your photographs in general and could use some encouragement and positive criticism. In these cases, nothing can replace individual tuition.

Some of the people I have taught individually range from people who just want to learn their new camera, to professionals who need to improve their digital photography skills.

The subject varies depending on your needs as a photographer and I am happy to discuss with you a lesson or course of classes that best work for you. Some of the subjects I have taught include:

  • Getting to know Nikon, Canon, Sony, Olympus, Leica, Lumix, Leica and Pentax cameras, whether DSLR, mirrorless or point-and-shoot.
  • Outdoor portraits or studio lighting
  • Off-camera flash
  • Infant and family photography
  • Travel and wildlife photography
  • Event photography
  • Product photography
  • Sports and animal photography
  • Low light photography

Private Photography Classes For the Busy Individual

I offer individual instruction on all aspects of digital photography. We can often cover a lot of information and techniques in individual sessions, which make them good value for money.

Tuition fee is $85 per hour, when held either at Balboa Park or downtown. A second person may attend at half price.

Tuition fee for a class at your home is $150 per hour with a two-hour minimum.

Classes are for adults only.

Pros: If you wish me to attend and help at one of your commercial shoots, the cost is $300 per hour with a two-hour minimum.
