    The perfect course for me, I’m one of those who have been stuck on ‘auto and scene’ modes for years. This course really showed me what can be achieved with just a little bit of knowledge. Lou took the time and care to explain the basics to everyone in the group without us

    Thank you for you fantastic feedback. Really pleased that our teaching moved you immediately away from using Auto and Scene modes. You can now change the way your photos look and achieve outstanding results. Wishing you the very best with your photography.

    A thoroughly enjoyable, informative and educational beginner's workshop. Truly hands-on. I learnt so much about the camera and photography basics - much needed. Lou's knowledge of all sorts of cameras is really good! I liked the teaching style and the range of topics covered.

    I inherited a camera and had no idea what to do with it, so I chose this course because it was good for complete beginners. It was a great course - I learned so much in the five hours and I've been happily playing about with my shutter speeds, ISOs, white balances and apertures

    Delighted to hear that you enjoyed our Beginners Photography Course with Lou. It's fantastic for us to know that you are controlling shutter speed, aperture, ISO and white balance and are confident using your camera's manual settings. We thoroughly enjoyed sharing our skills with you and look forward to working with you again on another course soon.

    Just a quick note to say thank you very much for a highly informative course. I feel a lot more confident now as I think I understand a lot more about my cameras functionality and the inter-relationships between the various functions. A lot of practice is now required to make it
