Photography Study Support
I offer Photography tuition in theory and practice for all levels.
I hold a PhD in Art and Communication with Photography as my field of specialism and a PGCE teaching certificate in Post Compulsory Education.
At the same time I am a practising photographic artist with an interest in abstract photography. I have a comprehensive understanding of contemporary photographic practices and of theoretical approaches to the subject, and also have a strong technical grounding both in traditional and in digital processes. I am experienced in all stages of the development of photographic projects, from early conceptualisation through to printing and exhibiting.I have exhibited nationally and internationally in both solo and group shows. My selection for the Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2008 Exhibition in Liverpool and London is one highlight among them.
As an artist and teacher I insist on the highest professional standards and I emphasise clear and direct communication and honesty throughout.
I offer private lessons to photography students and any other individuals who would be interested in 'how to'/technical skills sessions or in developing a photographic body of work and would be in need for some expert advice.
I am passionate about photography and about teaching everybody to learn how to 'see' and 'think' creatively through the lens of a camera but also without it!
My academic support to photography students involves practical project development, essay and dissertation guidance and any other issues that a particular student might be facing.
Greek Language Tuition (MODERN GREEK)
I am a Greek native speaker coming originally from the beautiful island of Crete. I have been living in England for the last 18 years and I have been teaching privately for the last 11 years. I hold a PhD in Art and Communication and a PGCE teaching certificate in Post Compulsory Education. These qualifications provided me with a very good command of the English Language. I am very capable of playing between Greek and English and can help English speakers have a wonderful experience of my native language.
I welcome all to explore the magic of Greek language and discover a huge variety of English words that come from a Greek root.
