I had a 1:1 Pembrokeshire photography workshop with Drew Buckey, which was a birthday present from my mum and sister. To give a bit of background - I am an amateur photographer and a beginner really, I’ve had a real camera for about 2 years and haven’t received much in the way of tuition before. Very much been trying to learn myself and watching YouTube videos etc. Drew is really friendly and easy to talk to, he’ll answer any questions you’ve got regarding photography and has loads of useful advice. Ask whatever you need, he’ll help. Having a workshop with Drew was something I’d definitely recommend to other photographers and if you’re like me and relatively inexperienced a workshop with Drew is worth every penny. I feel like the way I look at composition has changed and I have a greater understanding of things I’d already read about or watched online, but understand much better. Also how to use certain things better! The main thing I got out of this workshop was improving my composition. It’s so important to get this right and I know I’ve made lots of mistakes along the way. Sometimes I’d get frustrated because I couldn’t see why my compositions didn’t work. Thanks to what I learnt from Drew I could immediately see what was going wrong and how to create stronger images. Of course the next part is practice, you can’t expect to be better overnight. But the knowledge I’ve learnt from Drew will really help me in the future. I’m already looking at things differently. There was a setting I had switched on I didn’t know anything about, nor did I know I didn’t need it. This was also useful to learn as it’s saved me a lot of time with future shots! I’ve also learnt more about light and how to use light in my photos, also things to avoid shooting depending on the light angle. Perhaps one of the best things was getting to try some Lee Filters, Drew is an ambassador for the company. Wow is all I can say..! Forget the screw on’s you can buy from Amazon, you’re wasting your money! The Lee filters are expensive, but getting to try some really opened my eyes to what is possible with them and they allow you to be even more creative. The following day I went out to practice and was instantly disappointed without the filters, they really are a must have. Drew gave me some discount codes which was really kind and will be a big help for me buying some. We had differing weather throughout the day, sunny skies to start at West Angle beach, followed by rain and hail at Martin’s Haven which forced us to break for a bit. Then we were treated to the most epic and moody sunset at Marloes. The soaking we endured was worth it! Overall I had a fantastic day, learnt a lot that will really help me develop as a photographer, got to try a full range of very expensive filters enabling me to see what is possible with them and came away with some photos I feel very proud of. Thanks Drew for a fantastic day!

We had a lovely day out with Drew in glorious Welsh sunshine. He has immense patience and is a superb, gentle teacher. He knows an immense amount about birds and we were just sad we were unable to do his puffin workshop.

Drew is extremely knowledgeable and easy going, he had no issues with the amount of silly questions I asked especially being a below average amateur photographer. We set out a game plan prior to meeting and on the day visited a few locations working through different techniques, settings on the camera, things to look out for and what makes a good photograph. I really enjoyed the day and learned so much. I recommend anyone at any level spending time and learning from his vast knowledge

A friend and I went on one of Drew's trips to Skomer last week, delayed from last year thanks to Covid, but it was worth the wait. Skomer is a wonderful place, full of wildlife, but principally the Puffins of course, the first time I've seen them. Drew organised the whole trip, all we had to do was turn up, and was wonderfully knowledgeable, both about the island, its wildlife, and of course how to photograph it. Very highly recommended!

Spent a great day on Skomer Island with Drew on his puffin photography workshop. The experience was amazing and I learnt a lot about shooting birds in flight that I can use in future photography projects. I was really hoping to capture a puffin in flight and, using Drew's teaching and advice, managed to come away with several pictures that I was very pleased with.
