A private tutor can help you efficiently and effectively document stories or get guidance and a second opinion on more experimental pieces of work. A popular option of photography is taking portraits of others. Portraits are useful for many people, for instance, those who have started a new business, need professional headshots for a job, artists, bands, models, actors and plenty more.
