I have a passion for both photography and teaching. With over 25 years lecturing experience in higher education – I have developed successful methods of teaching photography to all levels of ability and age in a relaxed, informative and fun manner. Whatever camera you own (iPhones to dSLR), I will help you to significantly improve your photographs from understanding key compositional rules to mastery of the numerous controls on your camera. I hold both group classes in a variety of beautiful locations and also 1-1 tutoring on specific genres. I am based in the Western Cape of South Africa, just 15 minutes from Paarl and Franschhoek.

Learning with Paula gave me the confidence to just go out and take photos whilst enjoying myself when doing so!

I completed the ‘introduction to photography’ course with Paula. I learned so much about the use of my camera in such a short space of time!
