Teacher was great, super passionate about the subject and made everything so interesting. And very knowledgeable and encouraging. Top quality materials.

Tahira Manzoor Mar 2024


Had a great time learnt a lot about life drawing, time flew by. Super enthusiastic tutor and a great model …

Dean Forrester Aug 2023


Venue was really cool however I did not receive the instructions in an email for how to access (maybe some technical glitch).

The teacher was great and very empathetic to students needs. Good quality materials provided.

My main criticism was the day lacked enough actual practice and exercises for drawing. Maybe a bit too much talking at the start.

Kap Varma Jul 2023


Had a great time learnt a little not just about Macro photography but photography and camera in general. James our trainer was very good with a relaxed, engaging easy style. The venue was the right size for the audience (2)
Suggestion would be

A. Outline the days agenda at the beginning
B. C9nfirm prior that food and drink (not water) is not provided. Bit that there are a wealth of local eateries available.

Graham Elliott Jul 2023


Great course, teacher and location which is near the train station and plenty of places to eat for lunch. Location had full facilities with free tea & coffee throughout the day, the course room was the perfect size for our group of 3 people. I learned a lot from the course especially about communication with the model you are photographing in such an intimate manner, we went through all aspect including several lighting techniques to achieve the effects that we wanted. I thoroughly enjoyed the day and would not hesitate to recommend and or attend future courses. I was so pleased with the images that I took and it has given me the confidence to try out this genre in real life.

This class is a must for those new to photography. The instructor, James, was very knowledgeable and explained things in a way to make it easy to understand. There were lots of opportunities to get out for practice and James made time to stop and see how we were getting on with each practice session.

Now I just need to practice what I’ve learnt!

Elizabeth Mitchell-Yankah Jun 2023


We had a great time. The teacher was encouraging and helpful. She made sure we had fun and did a great job at incorporating additional dancing props to keep interest piqued and broaden our learning.
Great value for money. My friends and came for a hen celebration. The teacher did well to keep us all focused.

Holly was a brilliant tutor, i learnt so much in the 2 days and she was very informative for my specific photography needs. I have picked up techniques i never thought i'd know about and i left the course with some of the nicest pictures i've ever taken.

Deirdre Broom May 2023


Better cleaner venue found it quite intimidating .
Content wasn't clear and my style was clearly different from the majority and I felt it was not conducive with class content .

It was a relaxing class. Teacher explained the technique very well. As a newbie to drawing, it was an enjoyable experience

Teacher was great - Easy going and professional Venue not the most accessible or easy in terms internal stair case a d codes etc

Alicia Alvarez Oct 2022


Amazing experience. Our names were not on the list but someone on the phone sorted it all out and guided us to the room. You need to go through different locked doors to get to it if you're late. Don't be! :)
I really enjoyed the class because the teacher is very eloquent and charismatic.
I learned about the work of different artists and got to play at making marks that initially looked like nothing and then became a patern.
It was interesting to see the work from others in the class and using different techniques that helped me to feel liberated. You can keep all your drawings. It's a good idea to go with someone you know but you can meet and chat with others either way.
I recommend this class for a couple to do something different together or someone to have a "child like" experience and let go of self-judgement for a little while.
Thanks to the teacher and the organisers.

Imogen Oct 2022


What a great teacher Tim was! Super patient and flexible, but gave us loads of food for thought and nice loose tasks that we could turn into what we wanted. It was really interesting to see what other people were doing with the same task, and just a really friendly and relaxed environment. I've already recommended it to friends!

Fleur Turner Oct 2022


Fantastic, I had the best time and learned a lot, great teacher. Thank you very much

Rebecca Andreis Oct 2022


This course went beyond my expectations! The lessons were very practical for aspiring photographers, especially if one wants to stick to the field of professional photography.

Steve Neal Oct 2022


A great day! The teacher managed a superb balance of informality with structured sessions making it easy to take on board. Being guided through the effects of moving and modifying the light(s) was a real help as was the difference in using strobes and the available window light. The model was brilliant, and *very* patient whilst I learnt the importance of rapport/dialogue (should be obvious really but with my head full of camera settings and lighting easy to forget!).
Plenty of practice to be done, and I now feel more confident to work with studio lighting.
