Previous providers of these courses have spent far too much time on unnecessary camera settings and constant adjustments. This course is so much more practical and I learnt a huge amount. I would highly recommend anyone interested in photography to get on one of these courses and you will surprise yourself how quickly your photographs improve. Glen’s a great tutor who delivered the course content in an easy to understand and relaxed manner.

Margot Leach

Fantastic photography course. Glen is a brilliant teacher and the course was not only hugely informative but great fun. I learnt so much about camera settings, including things I didn’t know existed. Excellent tuition which covered both technical and photographic aspects. Terrific value.

Jon Mosely

I can’t recommend Glen’s courses highly enough. I learnt so much in a day and came away confident to try out all sorts of shots. I feared it would either be superficial or information overload but it was neither – instead perfectly pitched.

Annie W.

I’m on an Art Foundation course at Loughborough University and since attending Glen’s beginners course I feel my photography has improved greatly and I am much more confident at altering my camera setting quickly. My tutors said that my photographs were as good the third year fine art degree students! I look forward to attending another one of your courses over the summer. Annie.

Matt Letts

I’ve spent three years at university and I’ve learnt more in 7 hours on Glen’s course than I did at university. I learnt how to adapt lighting techniques, pet photography and portraiture. It’s been a big help learning about tips and tricks on photography. Thank you for your help and the jacket potato. Highly recommend the course to learn about photography!! 😁

I loved everything about this course. Glen was very patient and was always willing to answer the dumbest questions. I thoroughly enjoyed putting the theory into practice during the practical sessions. The course also had nice food in comfortable surroundings in a delightful village. Thank you to Glen and Jacqui.
