Frequently asked questions.
FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION
Interested in enrolling in my masterclasses? Here is some more detailed information regarding the more common queries I receive.
What do the masterclasses cost?
Each masterclass costs $795 AUD (plus Paypal fees) for 10 hours of personalised, one-on-one tuition.
Which masterclass is right for me?
Advanced High-End Beauty Retouching focuses on a very meticulous level of detail control. Suited to specialist retouchers, if you want the most precise mastery of details in your retouching, this is the masterclass for you.
Advanced Editorial & Fashion Retouching is perfectly suited to photographers who process their own images, and focuses primarily on achieving the highest possible quality colour and tonal finish.
How long do the masterclasses go for?
Both masterclasses run for 10 hours.
Do I have to do the masterclasses in one sitting?
Not at all! In fact, I’d strongly advise against it!
Then how are masterclasses run?
I suggest breaking the masterclass up into five two hour sessions. This way you don’t get overwhelmed with too much information.
So does that mean we do one class every day for five days?
It’s entirely up to you, though I prefer limiting the number of sessions to two per week. This way, you can practise the techniques we cover in each session for a few days, in your own time, in between sessions. This works great if you have any questions over the techniques, as we can cover them in more detail in our next session.
Can I customise what you teach me?
You certainly can. As long as it can be covered in 10 hours, you can pick and choose individual sessions from both masterclasses, to tailor your learning experience to your specific needs.
How can I pay for the masterclasses?
Payments are processed via Paypal, which will attract minor additional Paypal fees.
But I don’t have a Paypal account!
In many instances, you can make a payment via Paypal without having an account. Contact me for more information.
Is there a student discount?
If you can provide me with a scan of a current tertiary/secondary student identification card, I’ll happily add another two hour revision session to your schedule, at no extra cost. That brings your one-on-one tuition time with me up to 12 hours!
Can I enrol in both masterclasses?
Absolutely! Many people choose to enrol in both the Advanced High-End Beauty Retouching and the Advanced Editorial & Fashion Retouching masterclasses.
Is there a discount if I enrol in both masterclasses?
There is! If you enrol in both masterclasses at the same time, the fees are lowered to $1395 AUD (plus Paypal fees).
How are the masterclasses delivered?
Via Skype screen sharing. You can view my desktop directly as I deliver each session and step you through every technique in meticulous detail. This enables you to ask me questions whenever you need and provides a level of learning interaction that a tutorial DVD cannot replicate.
What hardware/software do I need for the masterclasses?
You’ll need to be running Adobe Photoshop CS3 as a minimum, as well as Skype along with a reliable internet connection. While I teach with the Mac version of Photoshop, it makes no difference if you are Windows based.
I’m interested in enrolling, what is the next step?
If you’re interested in my masterclasses, I’ll invite you to have a conversation with me over Skype before you make any decisions. Not only is this great for you to meet me before you decide if you want to enrol, but it’s great for me as well, because I like to find out as much as I can about how you currently work, and what the most important things you want to learn are. This is the first step in tailoring my masterclasses towards your particular needs.
I have more questions. Can I contact you directly?
