Courses run and created by Tracey herself.
It is possible to take a course with Tracey in person. However if this is not an option for you then downloadable PDF versions of the courses and Online Portfolio Reviews are also available.
Tracey’s experience includes a degree in photography, more than 10 years of shooting pictures above the water, and 5 years underwater. She has won awards on underwaterphotography.com and Silenty 4. You can find examples of her work published on the underwater photography guide and a selections of dive shop and resort websites.
These are designed to be personal, flexible and suited to all levels of photographers. During dive Tracey will not bring her camera, just a slate and pencil. This ensures the attention is on the student and helping them to get the best possible pictures.
For many people, visiting Bali is not an option. To solve this problem Tracey is re-writing her courses as downloadable PDF files. They contain in depth knowledge of the chosen subject, example images, bullet point lists and subsections. The courses are easy to follow and make a good reference material to find information quickly.
The benefits of PDF files that you can save the file to your phone, tablet or computer. If you prefer something physical it is also easy to print out. Later on your dive trip you can refer to this document with no need for an internet connection.
New courses will be released each month so be sure to check back regularly or sign up to the Newsletter to get updates directly to your email.
If there is something you would like to have a course about or if you have and questions about these course please send a Message.
Do you have some photos you would like to get a professional opinion on? Any pictures you have taken above or below the water, from anywhere in the world, and no matter how old; Tracey is more than happy to have a look at them.
Please have a read through the following recommendations for photography courses with Tracey Jones.
Donovan participated in a few specialty courses with me. Due to his limitation of time I combined exposure, focus, strobe position and raw vs jpeg into one hour. Focusing on just the key elements relevant to Donovan.
For our second lesson Donovan wanted to learn about Adobe Lightroom. Again he only had one hour to spend on this, so we went through the Lightroom app. In addition I provided material for the full Lightroom course to read once he was back home in Hawaii.
This is what he had to say:
“I would like to recommend Tracey Jones as a photography instructor.
In preparation for my recent trip to Bali I bought a new underwater camera.
This camera required more in-depth knowledge about Photography principles than I had and even after taking a PADI Underwater Photography course, I still was not quite clear about correct F-stop / aperture settings, shutter speed,ISO, lighting and strobe placement and other skills.
Sitting with Tracey for 1 hour cleared so much of my understanding of these topics up for me. She is very good at setting a pace for learning , exactly from where I was at and her written materials on these subject (her own course literature) had such concise wording and graphical examples that I left that 1st hour much better prepared for the next day of diving and UW photography.
I sat with her for another hour a few days later and we reviewed my pictures and she gave me good feedback about their composition, focus, lighting etc.. but the topic of that session was Adobe Lightroom and she showed me the basics of the software in such an approachable way that I left very confident that I could refine my images for presentation. Again, her course material on Lightroom was the take-away gem for it proved very valuable in teaching me other aspects of the software and as reference material for my photo editing work.
I highly recommend Tracey Jones for any coaching or photography education work!Regards, -Donovan Tyler”
