"Tell me and I forget.
Teach me and I remember.
Involve me and I learn."

~ Benjamin Franklin

Quote...

“Mark Banks is quite simply one of the best teachers of photography I have ever met. His secret is an apparently endless supply of patience, and an acute analytical approach to developing systematic problem-solving tactics in photography, which he makes effortless and fun to learn, whether in the field or in the editing suite. Mark’s artistry, empathy, kindness and charm mean he is always a joy to work with, or to be taught by.”

~ Joe Cornish

Testimonials

One-to_one Post Production

One to One Post-Production

Various Dates - This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

It can be very satisfying 'getting it right' in camera and Mark encourages this approach in his practical workshops. However, taking the image is only half the story. Due to the way that digital cameras render images, it is more important than ever to process them using specialist software like Adobe Lightroom in order to get the very best out of each image. Improving your post-production skills can vastly enhance your images but where do you start? 

Mark teaches post-production in a logical, step-by-step manner so that each participant leaves with a sound understanding of how to extract the very best from each image. Working on Mark's own 27" screen or your own computer, you will be guided on not only how to use Lightroom but more importantly, why and where to apply adjustments. Mark will also demonstrate his own personal workflow including importing images, cataloguing in a logical way, processing the image and finally preparing the image for print or web. If you live in the North East of England, Mark can visit you at your home if you wish.

A typical Lightroom day consists of:

  • A minimum of 8 hours tuition.
  • An introduction to the day to discuss your specific requirements (participants are encouraged to bring a small number of images either in print or electronically to help Mark understand the level you are currently working at and to discuss composition and technique).
  • Understanding the import feature in Lightroom
  • How to catalogue and file images in a logical manner within the Library Module.
  • Techniques used to understand what adjustments need to be made for each individual image - including tips and tricks - nothing is a secret!
  • Understanding colour.
  • Preparing your image for print using soft-proofing.
  • Basic understanding of the Print Module (Mark recommends a separate day specifically for printing as there is a lot to take in. Details about his printing masterclasses can be found here).
  • Lunch is included for participants visiting Mark at his home.

Travel:

Mark can travel to you if you live in the North East of the UK or you can come to his home in Northallerton, North Yorkshire to suit you.
