A 3 hours class is a minimal for a beginner to really master his/her camera and to answer to main difficulties (blurry or too bright, too dark images).
A 2 x 3 hours course is minimal for a beginner to really master his/her camera, to answer to main difficulties, and to be able to take the right decision in front of different type of subjects (sport, portrait, landscape…) and situations (indoor, outdoor).

Private Classes Rate
For sure, the hourly rate is higher than my usual 9 weeks / 25h Group program, but the 1 by 1 (or small group) figure helps to compress the time by only dealing with topics that matter to you the most, adjusting the content of the class for you to save time (and money).

A private photography class is a perfect birthday gift and a shareable experience for a couple.

If You can concentrate your participation during a weekday (2 x 3 hours), I can easily set up my schedule for it and give you a discount, as follow :
2h = 750 RMB / 3h =1100 RMB / 4h = 1450 RMB / 5h = 1800 RMB / 6h = 2150 RMB.
– Example: 1 day 3 hours morning Class + 1 hours= lunch break + 3 hours shooting walk in the afternoon = 2150 RMB (instead of 2400 RMB)
(As many companies are offering budget for their employee’s training, we can produce Fapiao if you need so, but there is 5% tax increment n the total price)

To divide the cost, for this individual price you are welcome to invite one friend, who is willing to learn the same subjects for free. This is a great formula for couples, mates or colleagues.

During my class, I am motivating the student to get out of their comfort zone to start new things creatively and technically. Stan in action.

If you want to share your class with 2 people or more, we will discuss the overall rate.

Sample Program (2 x 6 Hours program)
To save cost, you can just pick up the topic you like the most…
1 – Theoretical and practical training on Camera preset, set up and adjustment according subject, lighting environment and creative idea. Understanding ISO, Aperture and Shutter speed. How to use the Quick set up menu, to choose the best Shooting Mode, best exposure metering and Best focus mode.

The famous Brand hired me to teach its staff how to take interior and exterior shots of the store.

I worked on a very interesting project for the famous Spanish clothe company Zara through Inditex head office.

A very unique and interesting project with the following content:
