4 Private Lessons

After being bought this package as a birthday gift, I was not disappointed. Two of the lessons were conducted in the house. The first was an introduction to my camera and all the settings and terminology I would need for my subsequent lessons. We then had two walking tours of Leiden. It was great to get advice right as you were taking the photos and then reflect on the image and try it again if necessary. The final session was an introduction to editing and what can be achieve after the shot. I’m so pleased I took the classes and only wish I had done them when I had first bought my camera. Harry was patient and happy to go through things again with me. He was also very flexible with times and dates with helped. I not only feel I got photography lessons but also a personal history tour of Leiden. I would recommend Harry’s lessons.

Oh, let me tell you, Harry is an absolutely incredible teacher! His patience knows no bounds, and his knowledge is simply astounding. I cannot emphasize enough how much I adored the walk around Leiden with him. Not only did he effortlessly unravel the intricacies of photography, but he also painted a vivid picture of the area's remarkable history. I was completely captivated, hanging onto his every word. It was an experience that left me utterly enchanted and longing for more. Harry's passion and expertise made the whole adventure truly unforgettable, and I can't wait to learn from him again.

Day and night safari booked

Harry is a great teacher. His no nonsense attitude makes a private class very enjoyable. I learned a lot. He learned me how to look differently to every day objects. How to get the most out of my camera and to get the best shot. I recommend both day- and night workshops if you want to grow as a photographer!

Another perspective of Leiden

This Photo Safari is worth every dime. Harry helped me with setting up my camera correctly for different types of weather and light throughout the evening. He is nice, patient, and very enthusiastic about photography. I feel like a few hours of walking around with Harry have made me a much better photographer. Highly recommend this experience to anyone wanting to learn more about photography both beginner and advanced.

lessons (beginners)

Harry is een uitstekende fotograaf die enorm veel over fotografie weet en het op een leuke manier kan over brengen. Hij is aardig en prettig om mee te werken.
Tijdens de eerste les heeft die perfect uitgelegd hoe de camera werkt en hoe je het op de juiste manier moet instellen. Dit is iets waar je als beginner nog wel moeite mee kan hebben, maar Harry legt het op leuke en goede manier uit. Vervolgens ga je samen met Harry de stad in om het in de praktijk te oefenen en te spelen met creativiteit in foto’s.
Ik heb enorm veel geleerd en het heeft ook een hoop mooie foto’s opgeleverd. Zeker een aanrader voor beginners.
