WOLFWERK Education

Photography classes, mentoring and coaching

I have been teaching photography classes at the Australian Centre for Photography for over 7 years and for over 3 years at Sydney Photographic Workshops. The experience  has been rewarding. Also lectures during the Head On Photographic festival in past years as well as talks at the MCA (Museum of Contemporary Art Sydney) and at ACMP (Australian Commercial and Media Photographers) 'Trampoline' events for emerging photographers have kept me in touch with fellow photographers.

When I started out in photography I was lucky to work with mentors who guided me along the way. Through assisting full time for 5 years I met some of the greatest commercial photographers in the industry. I expanded my network to other creatives who reviewed my work and helped me develop my style.

Sharing my experience and knowledge of photography and the industry with beginner to advanced students in an approachable way is something I enjoy. I also offer photography tuition for beginners and tips for established photographers to finesse their portfolios or projects. For most students their sessions have been a game changer and catalyst for change in their photography practice. They have turned into confident and passionate image makers developing a deeper understanding and fulfillment in photography.

Photography Classes: Game changing business growth

"I approached Fiona in 2012 for help with my business and a portfolio review. Fiona was incredibly helpful and generous in sharing her expansive knowledge of photography and the industry. I was able to implement her suggestions straight away; her help was a catalyst for change in my business. Since I sought help from Fiona my business has grown and I am a much more confident image maker. I can't recommend the help fiona gave me highly enough - it was a game changer."
