"Understanding and chasing the light is worth more than any camera in hand" — Vernon Chalmers

Photography Training Philosophy and Mission


As a professional photographer, educator and skills development facilitator my main priority is to provide a quality learning experience to the new and developing photographer in his or her photographic journey across the different genres I facilitate. 

The same professional standards apply for providing information and learning about Canon EOS bodies, compatible lenses, Speedlite flash and other camera accessories.

Over the past ten years I've had the privilege of assisting and training hundreds of local, national and international photographers, either via group workshops, during private one-on-one training lessons and / or online support on my website or via my Facebook Pages.

Moving from Left Brain to Right Brain Education and Training

It is my mission to assist the new and / or more experienced enthusiast and professional photographer with technical information and associated photographic techniques. It is essential for me that the student (over time) develop a true understanding of the journey mastering the art and science of creative image making (irrespective of Canon camera / lens).

My inherent training philosophy is that a major component of any level of learning is the provision of relevant information, answering learner questions and to facilitate (and demonstrate) photography learning outcomes until the photographer is comfortable in applying new information, knowledge and skills in the field.

No previous delegate or client should hesitate to contact me for any information or advice they may require in terms of current or future camera requirements and exposure / focus settings et al.

The majority of this information sharing sessions are via private email requests and / or Facebook private group postings and private messages.

Through the dedicated Vernon Chalmers Photography WhatsApp Business App I offer support and knowledge-based information on a private and one-on-one client basis.

Any new Canon photographer is welcome to browse my Vernon Chalmers Photography website and / or Contact Me via the website or my Vernon Chalmers Photography Facebook Page for more information about training with me at Milnerton / Woodbridge Island, Cape Town.
