Professional Development - Learn to make pro video with your smartphone

I offer professional development courses and training to professionals who want to learn the latest multimedia and mobile video skills.

Media professionals and journalists from across Europe come to study with me in one-on-one workshops.

Typically these professionals already have an approved grant for professional development or have a training stipend from their employer.
