The greatest thing a human soul ever does in this world is to see something and tell what it saw in a plain way. Hundreds of people can talk for one who can think, but thousands can think for one who can see. To see clearly is poetry, prophecy and religion, all in one.’ – John Ruskin
We’ve identified four key pillars of great photography; they are the best structure for the stable and efficient development of your Art, and you will be taught them directly during the courses. But whereas the Holistic Photography Essentials has to be incredibly intense and necessarily concentrated, the Holistic Photography Initiation is a complete course in mastering the Craft and Art; and in Learning to See.
The Holistic Photography Initiation aims to accomplish two things. First, to give you mastery of the photographic craft to a standard that’s better than 99% of people. Second, to give you control of your future Artistic development.
With bespoke tuition, you get what you want. The Holistic Photography philosophy gives you the best possible foundations and structure to build from. But we’re working to create your castle or palace; not ours.
You will learn the overriding philosophy of Holistic Photography. At its basis it is about learning to ‘See’; the camera is just a catalyst to achieve this, and the pictures are just beautiful by-products.
Each pillar of Holistic Photography will be thoroughly explained using the latest psychological learning techniques. You will not only learn the theory; you will practice katas and gain deep understanding.

The Holistic Photography Initiation will change your life because it will open up your way of Seeing the World. It gives you access to the incredible beauty that’s everywhere around us but is unseen by the majority.
For best results, most people like to join us for at least 50 hours of one-to-one tuition, composed of full and half days over a fortnight.
We can also put together a 30 hour intensive initiation over a week, or deepen the learning over a month or more.
One-to-one coaching is 50 Euros per hour when you book more than 12 hours, and €35 Euros per hour when you choose more than 30 hours, and includes ‘Photography: The Few Things You Need To Know’, all drinks, and two full years’ access to photography advice, feedback, portfolio reviews and unbiased equipment recommendations via email or Skype.
