    Excellent course
    Bought a mirrorless camera 18 months ago, delighted with results, but somewhat frustrated by automatic settings so took with DSLR Photographic to unlock the latent potential. The course delivered beyond expectations and rekindled my interest and appetite for photography. Delighted.
    Hi Gerard, Thank you very much for posting a review of our Intensive Photography course. I am really glad you enjoyed the day and learnt how to use your camera to its full potential! I hope you've also received follow-up notes and book recommendations. If you ever need any help with your photography or advice on camera lenses for your Canon M50 - just let me know! Have a great weekend! Roland Studio Manager

    Fantastic beginners course
    Absolutely fantastic course. I was gifted a new camera for Christmas and was struggling to pick up the basics- this course was increíble and has taught me I a day what would have taken me months to read up on. Giorgia was amazing, super knowledgeable and friendly. Really fun day out.
    Hi Katie! Thank you very much for leaving a review of our Intensive Beginners Photography course. I am glad you enjoyed it! I hope you received the follow-up notes. I will pass your lovely comments to Giorgia, I am sure she will be pleased :) If you would be interested in learning more, especially putting it all into practice outdoors, I highly recommend our Creative Practice sessions. Or, if you would like to learn more advanced topics - the Intermediate Course is the best, We are not running them right now as we are waiting for warmer weather, but we have sessions scheduled in March and April. With best regards, Roland Studio Manager

    5 stars and course was worth every penny
    So I attended the intensive beginners class, I take photos regularly, but really never took the time to learn my settings, the teacher was great, without a doubt I’ll be back to do the next lesson, honestly the teacher takes time to explain every question you ask, the day is planned out really well, I’m glad I spent the money on this course, there’s also live examples and you get that personal advice on the course from the teacher whereby they actually show you how to use your own camera. Great company and thank you. I’ll be back to attend the next level very soon Definitely well worth it.

    Travel Photography course
    I loved joining the Travel Photography course taken by Rob - in spite of a damp and cold day we all had the best time and learnt a lot with loads of tips. I feel more confident about being able to take more interesting shots. It was really worthwhile doing the course and I would thoroughly recommend it.
    Hi Jo, Thank you very much for posting a quick review of our Travel Photography course. I am really glad you enjoyed it, and I will pass on your kind comments to Rob. Yes, I am afraid the weather is not always pleasant, but I hope that this will only work to your advantage. Next time you are travelling, you will know how to approach every kind of weather condition and how to use it to get better pictures. If you have any questions, would like some camera/lens upgrade recommendations, or travel gear - feel free to email me! With best regards, Roland

    Fantastic course, my photography moved up a level 👌
    I did the Creative Practice course with Katerina. Something that I hadn't understood previously suddenly clicked and I felt like my photography moved up a level. The course was great. Loads of tips and advice, feedback and was impressed she knew more about my camera than I did. Definitely recommend and hoping to do intermediate course as well. Many thanks
    Dear Andrew, Thank you so much for your wonderful review! We're absolutely delighted to hear that your experience with our Creative Practice course and Katerina helped elevate your photography skills. Katerina is indeed a gem in our team, and her deep knowledge and passion for photography are truly infectious. We're thrilled that her tips, advice, and feedback have been valuable to you. It's fantastic to hear that you're considering our Intermediate course - we're sure you'll find it just as enlightening and beneficial. We can't wait to welcome you back and see how your photography continues to evolve. In the meantime, keep exploring your creativity and capturing the world through your lens! Best wishes, Roland Pokrywka Studio Manager DSLR Photography Courses

    Intensive Beginners Course - Recommended.
    I attended the Beginners Intensive Course having been given a voucher by friends for my birthday…they chose well! The 6 hours fly by and cover a lot of new ground for people like me who have shot on Auto all their lives. Our pro Aga presented everything in an engaging way, giving the 5 of us plenty of time to complete the practical exercises that followed each section of listening. I have a second voucher for the Intermediate course and look forward to visiting Wimbledon Art Studios again for that next year…when I’ve taken 000’s more pics on manual!
    Hi Ian, Thank you for sharing your experience with our Beginners Intensive Course. It's fantastic to hear that the session was time well spent and that you're now confidently stepping away from Auto mode. Aga has a knack for making complex concepts accessible, and I'm glad you found the balance of theory and practice to be just right. Keep capturing the world through your lens, and we can't wait to welcome you back for the Intermediate course. Here's to thousands more manual masterpieces! Warm regards, Roland

    The Best Photography Beginner Course
    I decided to enroll in the Level 1 Intensive Beginner Course here as I am going to India and wanted to learn more about how to use my DSLR camera. It turned out to be the best choice I made this year. The tutor, Aga, was amazing—very friendly, experienced, knowledgeable, and incredibly helpful. I will definitely go back to take the Level 2 course.
    Hi Aspasia, Thank you for such a glowing review! It's fantastic to hear that the Level 1 Intensive Beginner Course has been a highlight for you this year. Aga will be thrilled to know her guidance was so valuable. We're excited to see you again for Level 2 (Intermediate), and we can't wait to hear about your photographic adventures in India! Warm regards, Roland

    Amazing communication and care
    The communication and attention to details have been wonderful with Roland so far! He made sure the gift voucher arrived on time and he even gifted a photography book just in case the delivery of the paper voucher would have been delayed. Looking forward to starting the intensive digital photography full day course! Marta
    Hi Marta, Thank you very much for the kind words! I'm glad the voucher and book arrived promptly for Giacomo's birthday. It's important to me that your experience is seamless from the start. Excited for Giacomo to join the course and dive into photography! With best regards, Roland

    Highly recommend
    I did the intensive beginners course. Really useful, clear course. Will be taking many more and hopefully much better photos - and no longer on the auto mode! Helpful, patient (I struggled) and friendly instructor. Small group of 4 of us meant that we all got lots of attention. Highly recommend, when I have practised what I learnt on the course I would definitely go back to do something more advanced.

I attended the beginners course and wish I’d done this when I purchased my camera 3 years ago. I now understand what all the features and functions are on my camera. I don’t think I’ll be using the auto preset again! I would definitely recommend this course to anybody who is starting out on their journey with a DSLR camera. Many thanks to Aga for a well run course, your patience and answering every question that was fired at you.

Really grateful to Roland who recommended me the Product Photography course with Katerina.

The experience has been truly remarkable, and I can’t thank Roland enough for pointing me in this direction.

Katerina’s expertise and teaching style have been nothing short of amazing. She has not only imparted valuable knowledge but also shared countless practical tips that have greatly enhanced my understanding of product photography.

I have already noticed a significant improvement in my photography skills.

Thanks to Katerina for leading the foundation course in DSLR cameras. I had been nervous about switching from Auto mode to Manual. Although I knew there were things to consider, Katerina taught us in such a way that it all fell into place and I understood the concept.

Katerina was more than happy to answer what were probably very basic questions from the group and I for one, have now got the confidence to move to manual mode and enjoy my hobby of photography even more.
