‘Really great course which teaches you everything you need to know about your DSLR camera and how to get the most out of it. I went there because I use photography for work, but after the course, I really wanted to take up photography as a hobby, it was just so inspiring!’

‘I was really pleased, I came away from the day with all the fundamental tools to inspire me to use my camera properly and get off the auto mode. Our tutor was fabulous- enthusiastic, patient, explained everything really well and made the day fun. Highly recommended to anyone wanting to move up a gear in using your camera and being more creative behind the lens.’
