This camera course made everything simple to understand and it makes you want to take the camera with you everywhere. I will look at landscape scenes from a totally different perspective now.

This Photography course offered the perfect mix of theory and practical photography. It's a brilliant way to learn how to take perfect pictures. I would definitely recommend any amateurs wanting to learn how to use their cameras properly.

Tom Pugh

I will never use the "Intelligent Auto" again (Intelligent Auto it definitely is not).An excellent which easily exceeded my expectations.
Steve Parker 

I thoroughly enjoyed the day and after four years of owning a digital camera I've learned more in one day than I had in the previous four years put together. At last I understand what I'm doing and I look forward to taking much better photographs.

A fantastic day. I've learnt so much. Thank you Glen. I'll definitely be returning to do other courses as you explain everything in such a clear way. Really enjoyable. I really enjoyed the lunch too.
