Learning photography is…
…to observe, explore and interpret the world we live in and to share these images with others.
If you'd like to learn more about photography, we love to share our passion for photography and the knowledge and skills we have gained over the years.
Individual photographic tuitionWhile doing an on-line course or attending a group workshop can be very fun and informative, it may not answer your specific questions and needs. Each person has a different level or experience, a different camera and their unique approach and application for photography. Or you may be planning to buy a new camera and want to understand which camera and accessories are best going to fit your needs.
Alan is the more technical half of Vibrant Imaging and is great at helping people understand their camera (and the manual) and how to get the most out of it.
Perri is the editing and composition guru of Vibrant Imaging and will help you to fine-tune your artistic vision and get the very best out of your favourite images. So come and invest some time with one or both of us.
You’ll find its a really cost-effective way of fast-tracking your photography skills and vision.
For tuition at our home at Uki we charge $60 per hour (2 hour minimum)
For tuition at other locations we charge $80 per hour (2 hour minimum and extra travel charges may apply depending on location.)

The course was fantastic and opened my eyes up to a range of techniques and ideas. Alan & Perri take beautiful photos and have an extensive knowledge and an inspiring passion for photography. If you are looking to enhance your photography skills, I would recommend one of their courses."

When I travel I often spend hours photographing, birds being my favourite subject. My partner kept telling me I shouldn't neglect the basics of [digital] photography, and honestly, I tried, but one paragraph of a camera manual already made my head spin, so for years I was in denial of every technical aspect of photography and was consequently “rewarded” with flawed pictures: slightly blurred, slightly overexposed, just good enough for an obligatory slide show at a family gathering. This went on until on our recent Australian trip a friend from Adelaide suggested that I'd contact Perri and Alan Wain about a photography course. At that point we had a brand new camera with a nice lens, but most of the shots I made were still far from perfect. For a day both my partner and I were tutored by Perri and Alan. I'd pictured myself nodding off while lectured on topics I inwardly refused to understand. Instead, I was taken on a field trip and showed how to use a range of camera features when and where I needed those. The timing made all the difference. We had a great day, and I still remember what I learned, and use it ever since.
