This course was excellent and I learnt an enormous amount. I now feel really confident and cannot wait to go out with my camera and really enjoy it. No more auto settings for me.

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.

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.

Denise Connor

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.
