Student Testimonials

Having spent over a year using my camera only on full auto to take photos I decided I needed help to figure out all the settings I should be using.

I'm so pleased I did. This photography course explained all the settings and all the best picture composition tips I needed. Glen ensured no one left without all of their questions being answered- including me.

Hi Glen "Thanks for a most enjoyable and informative day, It answered all my questioned plus many more. Considering lunch was included I thought it was really excellent value for money."

David Stone

Hi Glen. I'm just dropping you a note to say how much I enjoyed the course today. You answered all my questions and gave me the confidence to go out and use my camera properly. Today has turned my box of expensive gadgets into top class photography equipment. Thanks!

This has been a great photography course and I know I can now take proper photographs instead of just snaps.

Highly Recommended.

Ivan Last

A good balance of technical & practical information with enough detail for the more experienced camera user without losing the beginners interest. A great course for getting the best out of my DSLR.

Iain Carpenter

A Fantastic Course. I now know how to use all the functions on the camera I didn't even know were there. I really enjoyed the course and learned a lot.

I have enjoyed the day. I need to get out now and take hundreds of pictures to get it to stay with me.
