Frequently Asked Questions

Everything else you need to know before getting in touch

WHERE DOES THE TRAINING TAKE PLACE?

Training takes place at my studio in Edinburgh. The studio postcode is EH14 1NL and there is free on street parking. 

The studio is a 5 minute taxi ride from Haymarket Station for those who prefer to travel by train rather than drive.

CAN I REQUEST TRAINING ON SOMETHING SPECIFIC?

If you are booking 1-2-1 training then I am happy to tailor the day to suit your level of experience and preferences.

If I think I am not the right fit for your needs I am happy to recommend other experienced trainers whose style may be a better fit for yours.

HOW LONG WILL THE TRAINING TAKE?

It is a full day from 10am until 4pm with a break for lunch. If we happen to run over that’s not a problem, I want you to have plenty of time for hands on experience and to ask questions.

WHAT DOES HTE FOLLOW UP MENTORING CALL INCLUDE?

We will typically schedule this for a month after your training so you have time time book in some models/client sessions. I can then look at your most recent work and provide feedback on progress, suggest tweaks to refine your posing and lighting etc. I can also answer any questions that pop up after the training, there is always something you’ll forget to ask on the day!
