I would like to invite you to discover the power of high quality photography through my coaching program.

In these days, professional photography plays a very special role. She speaks to us in various social networks. It has gained its place especially in the online area and its relevance is becoming more intense every day. We communicate daily through photography, and it leaves a message in each of us.

Every important moment or interesting event is now captured in a photo. Especially in the economic sector, photography can hardly be done without. Almost every product is nowadays advertised through pictures, be it on online channels or offline on posters, flyers or product sheets.

A professional photographer has to master the art of manipulating the play between light and shadow and at the same time finding the perfect angle that allows all elements of an image to harmonize in such a way that the result not only catches the eye, but speaks directly to the soul of the beholder.

Individual coaching

In coaching I teach you how to use your existing knowledge so that you can get the most out of your photography skills. By making small adjustments and using tips and tricks that I have gathered from my experience over the years, a clear difference can be seen when it comes to the overall impression. You will learn how this new perspective will have a positive impact on your work.

I help you to discover your strengths and to reach your full potential by giving you concrete suggestions for improvement, recommendations and examples of how you can optimize your picture and recording skills.

Photography in coaching with Patrick is much more than training! It is an opportunity to recognize your own abilities and learn in which aspects you can improve. It contributed a lot to my further development as a photographer. Patrick helped me to rediscover facets of my own work and with his innovative ideas he brought my creativity back to life.
