  • “Thanks so much for the course, it was amazing… can’t wait to put your suggestions into action. The course was so professional and the ideas so well organised I loved it. It’s totally changed my photographic life!”

  • I’d like to let you know that I really enjoyed the two hour photography workshop on Monday evening! Although I’ve done one other 3-day workshop…and I’ve tried to teach myself a bit from books, I came away from your workshop with a real sense of “aha!” Now I get some fairly basic things that I’d been approaching wrongly (important basic things, like ISO!!) I found your teaching style worked really well for me 🙂
