“Emily has really enjoyed the course - and we’ve been super impressed with what Emily has accomplished. At last - someone in our house can finally use our camera with great results! The way the course is structured is superb, really focused & clear - thank you!” - Michelle

“Thanks a lot, I thoroughly enjoyed the course and learnt a huge amount of information about my camera and its settings” – Ziggy

“Molly really enjoyed the course and had great fun coming up with ideas each week and then executing them. I'm really proud of her for her efforts and she has produced some really lovely photographs. I think she will have a lifelong passion for photography as a result.” - Andrew

He liked how the session was structured and felt that everything had been explained much more clearly than anything I had managed before!! And thanks for helping him further develop his interest in and understanding of photography. He asked for a book on Brutal Architecture for Christmas - new one on me - but I feel the assignments encouraged him to appreciate more of what's around him and see things in a different light” - Solon
