James Casey, Educator.

I love teaching, I really do. Its what I was born to do.

My areas of specialisation are Digital media, Art & English language (EFL)

I teach photography both digitally and traditionally, I also teach filmmaking and animation. These areas of specialisation all beautifully marry the arts and the sciences, both of which I have a great interest in and bring to all of my practices.

These disciplines benefit from the user having a high level of knowledge of the industry toolset whilst maintaining the flexibility to parse data between different and new workflows when required.

I not only operate with his skills as a practitioner, but bring these philosophies into my teaching.

Over the course of my professional career I have taught an enormous range of students and groups. These include children of all ages (I carry a current DBS) the elderly, non-native speakers, teachers, heads of departments, Business professionals. (Both senior and junior) and the general public.
