Private Photography Lessons


Private Photography Lessons with My Friend Teresa Photography!

Our private tutoring is for photo-enthusiasts of all ages, skill levels, and camera-types who want to expand on their photography skills with individualized instruction in their home or our Studio.  Photography lessons are best used for individuals who thrive with hands-on instruction outside the classroom environment.  Whether you’re looking to overcome a creative roadblock, or just needing a kick-start on the basics – our private lessons are customized to your interests.  Excitement for photography builds with every lesson as we master new skills, take on new challenges, and work to improve both technically and artistically.

Who can participate?  Private tutoring is available for ages 11 and up.
If you are a professional photographer, or aspiring professional photographer then please inquire via email about our professional mentoring and internship opportunities.

How much does it cost?  Individual private lessons are $100/session.  3 -session packages are $225 ($75/lesson) and 6-session packages are $420 ($70/lesson).

What is included?  Each lesson is 1 hour in length and can be held at your home or our Studio in Cary.  Included are individualized lessons – customized to fit your current learning needs.  Our hands-on approach means lessons are a mix of teaching, practice, and review of latest work.
