One-on-one training: we visit you

Available throughout the UK at your office, studio or home. You’ll be learning using your equipment and your images, in your own environment.

Who’s it for?

  • Professional photographers who need a proven digital image workflow
  • Emerging photographers who want to get to grips with image management and processing
  • Enthusiasts – serious amateurs who want to achieve great results
  • See the testimonials section for some examples

What does the training cover?

Every aspect of digital workflow, from capture to final output (exhibition-quality prints, online galleries and websites, submission for publication or stock) and including colour management. We speak with you first and deliver content that’s useful for you. Call us on 0333 577 5703 or e-mail us and we’ll discuss topics and the emphasis you’d like placed on each.

What image-processing software do we teach?

  • Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC and Lightroom 6 (all recent versions)
  • Adobe Photoshop CC (including CC 2017) and CS 6
  • Phase One Capture One Pro (recent versions)

What do we need from you?

  • An environment in which you won’t be interrupted too often.
  • A chair for the instructor and a chair for you.
  • A desk-and-chair arrangement that will allow both of us to get a good view of the computer display.

Anything else?

  • A recent Apple Mac or Windows PC. 16 GB of RAM or more, ideally.
  • Working copies of the apps (Photoshop, Capture One, Lightroom, etc.) that we’ll be using
  • A source of your own images to work on. Ideally, some raw files should be included but we can take photographs to obtain raw files during the training, if needed.
  • A digital SLR or similar.
  • Your printer, with ink and paper and clean nozzles, if we’re covering printing
  • A card reader or USB cable to hook up the camera and the computer.
  • Enthusiasm and lots of questions!
  • You’ll do best if you have time soon after the training to practice what we’ve covered

What do we offer?

  • Digital workflow training that’s based on what you need to achieve
  • A pace you’re comfortable with.
  • A friendly approach. No rush and a minimum of techie jargon.
  • Information on colour management, workflow, processing and print.
  • Remote and local software support for photographers

Lightroom 6 and Lightroom CC.2015 courses in London

Almost all our work is currently one-on-one training and support for photographers but if you’d like to attend a class, write (or use the contact form) and we’ll add you to the mailing list we maintain for group lessons. Bahi delivered popular courses on colour management for photographers for DMIC at the Ravensbourne campus in 2013 and 2014. Bahi also occasionally delivers a course at Four Corners Film — they have a newsletter that’s worth signing up to.

Photoshop training, London

Bahi delivers an occasional one-day Introduction to Photoshop course for up to six attendees. It’s held at BECTU’s training premises in Clapham, a three-minute walk from Clapham North tube station. We ran the course twice in 2015 and again in April, 2016. More information on the BECTU page for the course. We’ll update this page when we schedule the next session. It is now delivered using the latest version of Photoshop CC, on Apple iMac desktop computers.

Availability

We’re taking bookings now for personal tuition for June and July, 2017. Training is available on the following applications: Adobe Lightroom 6.x, Lightroom CC 2015, Photoshop CC 2017 (and other recent releases) and Capture One Pro (versions 9 and 10). The areas we’re asked to cover most often are: photo organisation (importing, filing, cataloguing), post-processing/development, general workflow, colour management, general retouching and the preparation and production of exhibition-quality archival prints.

Call 0333 577 5703 to discuss content or send us e-mail. We don’t employ any salespeople so if we’re not out training or teaching, you’ll end up speaking with us directly – we’re always happy to hear from you and we don’t make follow-up sales calls.

Photographic groups and collectives

If you’re part of a team of photographers, we’re always happy to arrange group training and follow-up support. Please call or write to discuss.
