I'm one of those people who points a camera on automatic settings and knows nothing about my camera ... and just what more I could do with it. So, this year I decided it was time to find out more in the hope that I could start taking better photographs ... and to know what I was actually doing. My main aim initially was to make my photographs sharper. The 4 hours I spent with Mike exceeded my expectations. Mike is a great tutor ... and very patient. He made me think of the Strictly Come Dancing professionals who have to be so patient and encouraging, in many cases, to complete beginners. Anyway, I'm definitely taking better and sharper photographs; feel a little more knowledgeable; feel challenged to think, in some ways, differently about composition, and feel I've been encouraged to learn more. So thank you Mike.

My daughter arranged this one-to-one photography class for me, during our recent holiday. Mike has just started up, after COVID19 had forced him to wind down for the spring. Accommodating to social distancing and having to deal with rain and wind, Mike was able to think on his feet and provide excellent photographic advice, accompanied by entertaining chat and a walk to the falls. This was not the easiest circumstance for him to get going with the photo classes again but it was a really valuable session, with a combination of affirmation, helpful tips and things to do to improve my photo-taking. I would love to return for a further session, preferably (but not necessarily) in sunshine. I then arranged some rock climbing for the family, under Mike’s excellent - if challenging, tutelage. Thankfully the weather was better that day.

I thoroughly enjoyed a great day out with Mike providing one to one photography tuition for an absolute beginner. Despite the very cold and windy weather we toured round some on the highlights of the Yorkshire Dales stopping at various points to allow me to photograph the wonderful landscape. At all times Mike encouraged me to 'do my own thing' and then he would point me in the right direction enabling me to learn from my mistakes. I am now much more confident in not using 'Auto' and being able to think more about the picture I am going to take and how this will evolve. We spent time at Mike's home reviewing the days photographs and showing me how to improve them on the computer. I was so pleased with the photos I had taken, much better than anything I had taken in the past and I will definitely put into practice everything Mike taught me. An excellent relaxed informal day and I would definitely recommend a day out in the Dales with Mike.

Had An excellent day with Mike seeing the beautiful Yorkshire Dales. If you are a beginner or more advanced this is a great experience. Mike went over the technical aspects of my camera and settings and also showed me tools for composition. We covered a range of subjects from waterfalls to wild life and landscapes. It was an enjoyable and interesting day.

My enthusiasm for photography has always far exceeded my ability, so being given a full day with Mike as a birthday present was a great opportunity. Mike is based in a beautiful part of the Dales, close to some really good photography locations. So we spent a day going from location to location, with excellent photographic potential that Mike's practical tips and advice helped me make the most of. I will remember and use a lot of what I learned on the day, and the opportunity to fly a drone was just fantastic. Thank you Mike, I had a really great day which I would thoroughly recommend to others.
