The Switch to Manual course was a very helpful one for beginners, and Richard does a good job of cutting through the photo jargon, explaining the concepts of manual camera operation in fairly simple terms. During the lesson we also got a wee tour of...More

The switch to manual course was a great experience and one I'd highly recommend! I hadn't had the confidence to go to manual and was stuck in auto...I wasn't getting what I needed from that. Rich's course showed me so much and gave me the...More

I had a really excellent session with Rich. I learned a lot about composition, was taken out of my comfort zone in setting my camera to manual and took some shots of Edinburgh that I would never have done before. I would recommend this to...More

Had a great class and introduction into the concepts for taking photographs under your own steam - "Manual". Highly recommend this class and looking forward to a few further sessions with Richard (a great and knowledgable instructor) in the coming months.

Highly recommend this workshop to anybody who wants to learn how to use their camera and how to take better photographs. Richard was very knowledgable, teaching not only how to make the most of your camera but the composition and final editing using Lightroom.

I thouroughly enjoyed learning how to use my camera and switching to manual. Rich is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about photography. He was patient and encouraging which was great for an absolute beginner like I me.

I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop. Although I knew the theory (aperture, shutter speed and ISO) I did not have the confidence to Switch to Manual. Nor did I understand the light meter or histograms. Overall I leaned allot and am now enjoying the M setting....More
