“If I have any ‘message’ worth giving to a beginner it is that there are no short cuts in photography.” – Edward Weston

We love this quote as it really epitomises photography in a nutshell. There certainly aren’t any short cuts in photography other than to absorb as much knowledge as you can and then practise your craft. Over time it will become second nature and you will eventually be able to pass your experience and knowledge onto others who are interested in pursuing photography.

 I really enjoyed the workshop – both Paul and Helen are very patient but also very knowledgable and willing to share with the group. 


 The 1 on 1 workshop was amazing, well worth doing – Highly recommend. Paul & Helen are so nice & the attention to detail on how my EOS80D functioned was unreal!!  Arthur O

 Very good highly recommend it. Paul & Helen run a good interactive
session. Mohan S

 Good tour size this morning. Got a lot of useful advice from Paul and Helen. Another great experience.  Mario W

 Fantastic workshop, so much time and attention was given to each attendee. I would highly recommend this workshop to everyone. Each attendant was given specific information about their camera. There was plenty of time given to answer all questions and we were shown examples of all that we learned. Paul and Helen thought of everything, a nice warm cup of hot chocolate or coffee to start with on a cold morning and handing out lens cleaners before we started using our cameras. Thank you Paul and Helen, you have given me some great instructions to give me confidence and understanding to use my camera, especially on my travels we have planned.  Cynthia
