"I just wanted to tell you how wonderful the trip to the Flinders Ranges was for me. I can not thank you enough for your patience and tutoring during the trip.

"I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the two day “course” I attended last week. You took me to some wonderful places, gave me some really clear helpful guidance in how to improve my photo’s, gave me an opportunity to see how some larger format equipment works and last but not least were great company for the two days – Thanks!”
John Alexander – Individual Photographic Tuition
A weekend with Len Metcalf at the Waratah Street Studios in Katoomba, in the stunning Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area. Here you get individual attention and we can work on the skills you identify. Photography technique, post processing, and printing. Bring a friend and save.
"I spent two full days recently with Len, learning to use a Fotoman 617 panoramic camera and an Ebony 4x5" view camera.I had never been to a photographic workshop or had any photographic tuition, and I really wasn't too sure what to expect.
Len impressed me with his extensive knowledge and mastery of various photographic techniques.He communicated well and was flexible enough to accommodate any request.I would have no hesitation in recommending Len to anybody wanting to take their photography to the next level, and with the added bonus of the Blue Mountains as the setting, you couldn't really ask for more." - Richard McLean
Len has been mentoring photographers for the past twenty years. Working on their photography aesthetic, photographs, technique, presentation and businesses. Len offers short two or three hour intensives and/or ongoing regular sessions. Regular clients understand the importance of having a critical and encouraging eye pour over their work giving feedback from the heart.
”I found the mentor sessions incredibly helpful and Len very insightful. Prior to this my photo-taking had been rather haphazard and I had difficulty critiquing my work. I now concentrate when I go out with my camera, visualise what I want in the photograph and more often execute a striking image. I also feel more centered on what I hope to achieve from my photography and on what appeals to me as a photographic subject. This has rekindled the passion that first made me take up photography and led to the freedom of having more than one project on the boil at a time – keeping the momentum and enthusiasm alive for each one.” - Cynthia Coghill
A mentoring program to take you to that next level. Imagine being inspired to work on your own photographic project. Printing your work regularly and presenting it for valuable and informative supportive feedback.
Over a year on nine separate Sundays, this is the program that will push you further. Unlike any other photography workshop, this program is unique.
"Dear Len, Thank you for your time and wisdom this year. Your guidance has been invaluable. It is always a pleasure to be taught by you." - Monica Bailey
