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.

I had 4 private lessons with Harry - 2 at home and 2 foto walks in Leiden. He gave good instructions, everything was well explained. Harry is very knowledgeable and willing to give you as much information as possible .

I'm happy with the result and highly recommend lessons with him.

Workshop Nighttime Photography

On a cold evening in March, Harry Otto, instructor, and I myself set out for a three hour long workshop on nighttime photography in the center of picturesque Leiden. We started when the sun had just set, so the sky turned darker and darker as we progressed, and we even had a nice moment of ‘blue hour’. While wandering around, choosing different spots to set up our tripods, Harry taught me a lot about the technical aspects and the more artistic aspects of nighttime photography. Because the workshop was one on one I got constant attention and advice and could ask all that I wanted. I learned a lot that evening and had some nice pictures as a result. After this workshop I’ve been able to put in to practice what I learned, which has resulted in decidedly better nighttime pictures than before.Harry is a relaxed and knowledgeable teacher. Highly recommended!
