Having done an Intro course with Rod last year, I booked a 1-to-1 session to consolidate and develop my skills. I was particularly keen to improve my composition skills and to understand/try out the use of filters. We had a great day at Haweswater - dodging the people and (mostly) the hail showers! Rod is an engaging, enthusiastic and patient teacher and I learnt a lot. The follow-up materials are a fantastic resource and Rod is also happy to answer the inevitable Qs that arise. Highly recommended! (Oh, and COVID-safe!)

A friend and I spent a day around Ullswater learning photography skills with Rob. One of us (me) very much a beginner with no clue how to get out of auto mode, my friend much more experienced but looking for new tips and skills. Despite our different levels, we both got so much out of the day. Rod is a wonderful teacher, explaining things in an easy to understand way, and demonstrated hot to twiddle and press all those knobs and buttons so it made sense. I've come away not just with more confidence but also loads more enthusiasm.

Rod was amazing! He got me off automatic settings and I haven’t looked back. After one day I am confidently setting up the camera depending on what I want to achieve and what the conditions are! I really feel that I am now in control of my camera and not the camera controlling me. And the pictures speak for themselves! Thank you Rod! It was a great day and we’ll definitely be back 😀.

I joined Rod on one his photo tours and had a fantastic time. With his intimate knowledge of the Lake District we visited so many areas I had never seen before whilst moving at a pace to take in and photograph at leisure. We had chance for sunrise, sunset, fells, tarns, waterfalls, abandoned buildings, the list goes on. As well as the expert driving and anecdotes Rod’s subtle tuition and guidance Enhanced the experience. Thoroughly recommended.

I thoroughly enjoyed the groups company and it was my pleasure to show you around the variety of landscape scenery that the area has to offier, including a numer of the hidden away gems. Hope to see you again in the future all the best, Rod

Inspirational, Rod welcomed two novice photographers into the Lake District and left us with a thirst for much more. I can honestly say I will never look through a viewfinder the same again. From braving to move off the 'P' button to Aperture and Shutter buttons to composition and a story. I couldn't recommend this birthday present more (to give and accompany!) Thank you Rod.
