David Deal Jul 2024

Very enjoyable and informative. This course is a fun way of exploring the amazing possibilities a smart phone offers to folk who are interested in exploring photography. Strongly recommend this course.

Madeleine Perham Jul 2024

Fabulous, tons of practical tools with an emailed list afterwards and lots of personalised tips for an upcoming event where I want to take some photos

Victoria Bennett Jun 2024

The class was really enjoyable. The teacher was very good at sharing their knowledge and adjusted what they were showing us based on our questions. We covered composition, focussing, lighting, editing and an extra bit on how to blur water. Can't wait to try it all out on my next holiday!!

Denise Turner Jun 2024

Husband and son really enjoyed this and came away with a lot of tips for helping with their photography.

Cecily Roberts Jun 2024

Fantastic class with a really enthusiastic, knowledgeable, patient, and inspiring teacher, in a very small group. It's amazing how much we covered in just a couple of hours.

Cecily Roberts Jun 2024

Excellent small-group class with a friendly and knowledgable teacher. Good for learning new skills and polishing existing ones.

Kifah Arif Jun 2024

The workshop was a birthday gift from my nieces and nephews, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
The instructor was excellent, clearly explaining various techniques to use the iPhone for producing high-quality photos. We covered everything from capturing reflections on shiny surfaces to choosing the best scenic spots in Richmond, whether on the Green, in photogenic alleys, or in charming cafes along the river. At the end of the session, I was provided with a good photo editing app and a guide, which the instructor explained in detail.
I learned a lot about setting photo scales and manipulating different levels of light and color to achieve the best results. The workshop was definitely good value for money, especially with the added bonus of walking around Richmond, which helped increase my daily steps. It felt like getting a two-for-one deal! Another unexpected benefit was learning how to use an iPhone feature to enable voice control, allowing me to open the BBC Sounds app and listen to my favorite BBC Radio 4 programs

Joey Yung Jun 2024

Jet is professional and patient to answer all my questions! The tour was fun and I learnt super practical iphone camera skills.

Danielle McArdle Jun 2024

I had a great time and Jack was easy to chat to and laid back yet informative in his approach. Gave me lots to think about when taking photos in the future and accessible tips on editing. Would recommend

Robert Parker May 2024

Gail was really knowledgable and friendly and both of us really enjoyed the session. My daughter took some amazing photos and has been busy telling everyone who will listen about all the new features she learned about. We would highly recommend.

Riette Fulletr May 2024

Gail is a delightful teacher and the course was great fun. I learnt so much about my phone and fascinating details to improve my photography.
I strongly recommend a photographic safari with Gail.

Gill Shortt May 2024

Really enjoyed my wander round Richmond with Tim. He shared loads of new information and ideas with me to help make my photos more interesting. Can’t recommend this more highly

Smartphone Photography Workshop - Richmond-upon-Thames review by Gill Shortt - Twickenham

Liz Skinner May 2024

Really interesting and fun afternoon learning tips and tricks about how to make the best use of a phone.

Alan Siddall May 2024

I was bought the smartphone experience as a birthday present and didn't know what to expect. However the teacher Jack brought the whole thing to life for, he was very clear in his instruction and was never rushed. Jack was obviously very knowledgeable about his subject and made the afternoon an enjoyable experience.
The thing I liked most was that no assumption was made about prior knowledge, this helped me a great deal in the learning process.

Sarah Woods May 2024

Tim was incredibly knowledgeable about the many features and capabilities of the iPhone camera, and shared fun and insightful photography tips. I learned a great deal throughout the tour, and had a wonderful time exploring hidden gems in Covent Garden.

Asma Alhazmi May 2024

The class was very good, the teacher was very helpful and patient, she gave us some ideas that changed my perspective on photography and pictures. I like her

Paul Danny May 2024

Brilliant! Learnt so much in just too hours. Jet made the whole experience fun and educational and we came away with an arsenal of tips and tricks that will change our iPhone photography forever. You’ll never look at a puddle in the same way after the class. Every minute was worth it. Highly recommended.

Alice Willett Green May 2024

Booked as a surprise for my husband’s birthday.
We use our phone camera regularly to take quick snaps of our toddler and dog.
Wow did we learn a lot
Our session was really informative and Jeanette super friendly.
Our pictures have improved greatly and the added bonus was we saw parts of Kings Cross & Coal Drops yard we didn’t know existed.

Rushika Perera Apr 2024

Amazing photography course! We learnt a lot of different techniques and received helpful tips and tricks. Super happy with the way our photos turned out. I would recommend this course to anyone :)

Yu Chen Gan Apr 2024

Brilliant, learnt good techniques for my upcoming trip. Jeanette was very patient and informative. Useful session.

Smartphone Photography Class: South Bank review by Yu Chen Gan - London

Ana Williams Apr 2024

Lovely teacher and learned a lot of really quick and useful new tools and functions to improve the quality of my photos that I didn’t know about. Would recommend.

Nathan Gregory Monks Apr 2024

Fantastic to have a walk around Manchester with a different set of eyes on, finding lots of stunning details you often walk past

Photography class review by Nathan Gregory Monks - Manchester

Nada Awad Apr 2024

I learned a lot with Tim's calm and clear teaching. I picked up some good techniques to enhance and better how I use my smartphone camera. The editing insights were also very helpful. All in all, great fun. Thank you, Tim.

Smartphone Photography Workshop - Richmond-upon-Thames review by Nada Awad - Twickenham

Jimmy Apr 2024

Had a great class with Jet, fun and learned a lot about how to get the most out of our phone cameras. Very accommodating with our toddler as well, would absolutely recommend.

Anonymised ClassBento student Apr 2024

I took Jet's nighttime/ low light photography class and it was great fun. I learned so much and took so many cool pictures and I cannot believe I'm using my original phone! I recommend Jet's classes if you want to learn taking better photographs with your phone, and at the same time discovering some cool spots in London

Phil Thomas Apr 2024

Brilliant 2hrs getting to understand my iPhone camera capability - mix of technical and creative guidance that was really easy to follow and put into practice around Covent Garden. Would recommend Tim without hesitation.

Inès Lesieux Mar 2024

Had the best experience with Jeannette and would've never thought I would learn so much within a 2 hours stroll. I'm a content creator myself, and I've been using my phone for the past 6 years to create, but her insight and experience were so enriching. From little tips to life-changing perspectives on photography, I could not recommend it more. Also, it feels great to be around such a kind and devoted human being. Left as inspired as ever. Thank you for having me!

Natasha Mar 2024

Brilliant class! Thank you, Jet - the whole team really enjoyed their time with you. In the words of one of them - “you’re a miracle worker!”.

Cyrus Bulsara Mar 2024

Great afternoon with excellent teacher Julie Elmes in Margate. She had researched how best to use my phone and I learned that it could do more than I thought. Lots of great learning on composition and how to set up your shots. Ended with very useful editing tips. Highly recommended.

Sean Anderson Mar 2024

Bought this for my Wife’s Birthday so decided to join in! Gail was truly outstanding - learned more in the first five minutes that I couldn’t believe. Came away having really enjoyed the morning- absolutely fab!

Photography class review by Sean Anderson - Oxford

Bettina Moltrecht Feb 2024

It was great fun and we learned lots. Have been taking amazing photos with my iPhone ever since. Would recommend.

Polly Morgans Feb 2024

This lesson was given to me by my children for my 60th birthday. I love taking photos but didn’t know how to use an iPhone camera to its full advantage. The lesson exceeded my expectations. Jet was a great teacher, she was kind and patient when I needed some extra help. She showed us how to take photos as well as how to use functions on the phone. I would absolutely recommend her and would do it again! Thank you

Stacey Feb 2024

I was expecting the class to be something fun and different but it exceeded all of my expectations. I learnt so much and came away with photographs I didn't even know I could take. Jet is such a fantastic teacher - so patient, professional and friendly. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone (local or visiting) for an incredible day out in London. You will not believe what your simple smartphone can do when it comes to taking amazing photos.

Allison Best Feb 2024

Jet very friendly and despite being fairly savvy with my phone I still learnt some great tips/tricks which I look forward to putting into practice.

Definitely worthwhile even if you are not a novice.

David Jan 2024

The class was interesting and informative, with lots of personalised guidance throughout. The notes on how to use the app as well as reminders on techniques shared at the end are particularly useful too.

Caroline Jan 2024

I'm so impressed with the course! It's a pleasure looking through, and sharing, the photos I've taken today. Thank you

Dhawal Patel Jan 2024

A terrific day out with plenty of suggestions and ideas throughout. Explanations of how a specific perspective would function and in what situation. Followed by wonderful editing session where I learned so much about Snapseed

Rosie Leball Jan 2024

2 ClassBento workshops attended

Had a great street photography class with Jeanette. Learnt some great tips & techniques and saw a big difference in the end result. Jeanette is a fantastic teacher, would highly recommend this class.

Jackie Tapper Jan 2024

Gail was friendly, approachable and knowledgeable. She showed us a totally different perspective on how to take photos, using our existing phones but getting so much more from them. We thoroughly enjoyed this course with her, in particular the idea of using reflective surfaces and different angles.

Annalisa Fiorentino Jan 2024

Excellent, knowledgeable teacher and great location. Don’t recognise my own photos! Would definitely recommend.

Elena Borreani Jan 2024

I went to this workshop with my teenage daughter. We both really liked it and highly recommend it! The teacher is knowledgeable and patient. We learned a lot of tricks to take better photos and editing them. We are already thinking to book another workshop!

Chrisi Baetz Jan 2024

It was fantastic! Jet is so friendly, warm and knowledgeable. She provides great tips and makes it really interesting. She went above and beyond for us. My partner has walking difficulties and Jet offered a private session so that we could go at our own pace. No-one else has been so understanding and supportive. We greatly appreciate it and would recommend Jet immediately to everyone. We had a lovely time!

Verena Dec 2023

We went for our team's Christmas social and all really enjoyed the class. Very simple tips and tricks how to get the most out of your phone camera. We were all blown away by our own photography. I would highly recommend!

Jennifer Ryan Dec 2023

Jet is fantastic! The class was everything we hoped it would (except the icy London temperature). We learned some great tips and tricks that we will absolutely use going forward. I definitely recommend!

Susie Huntington Dec 2023

Our teacher was fab. She was very amenable to meeting in a slightly different location at KingsX than was first suggested. I organised this workshop for our work team - a mixed group of science and data nerds, hoping it would spark some joy, encourage our creativity but at the same time not put anyone off who might think they aren't very 'creative'. It certainly met those expectations. Everyone in our team really enjoyed the experience. I heard phrases like "wow, that's a real game changer" and we've since been sharing our photos of KingsX to impress each other with our new skills and know how. Even the office dog, who is very photogenic, enjoyed the experience and all the attention. I would highly recommend.

Smartphone Photography Class: King's Cross review by Susie Huntington - London

Heather Sanderson Dec 2023

Jeanette was fabulous, so knowledgeable and I learnt so much. Overall it was a brilliant experience and I can’t wait to practise all the new things iv learnt

Dalia Dec 2023

Super nice and flexible. Communication was great. We had a nice walk where she gave us several tips to improve our photos, from setting up your phone camera correctly, to learning how to look for the right light/reflections. At the end she showed us how to slightly edit our photos as well for final touches! Great experience :D

Julia Rychlicka Dec 2023

It was so nice to be a part of a Christmas Smartphone Photography workshop. Me and my daughter had a lovely time with Tim. He showed as tricks and help as set up our phones and give as some recommendations on apps which we could use. We had a tour around Covent Garden where we shoot beautiful pictures. Tim was very professional and patient. We have learn a lot, now we will shoot pro pictures on our Japanese adventure. Highly recommend

Aubrey Nov 2023

By coincidence had a one on one session with Jet. Really helpful, insightful and some great tips and tricks. My holiday snaps will look better than ever now!

Jessica Nastasi Nov 2023

What an incredible day spent with Jet. She was knowledgeable, fun, and adapted her session to our needs. We hope to work with her again soon. I wish we did this a long time ago Book her, you won’t regret it.

Mimi Lau Oct 2023

Tim is a very nice guide and professional photographer, he taught us to see things differently so we can take unusual photos. He made good use of puddle and mirror to take reflection photos, he brought us to different signature places in Covent Garden, So we are like touring and learning photo taking. Definitely recommend this workshop.

Gillian Renouf Oct 2023

Excellent session, even though the heavens opened it did not detract from our experience at all. Jet was amazing - knowledgeable, attentive, friendly and really upbeat. The whole group had a very enjoyable session and all learned a great amount.

Ching Chrysanthou Oct 2023

It was a fun session, Jet made it interesting yet informative. Learnt so much and great timing before I head off to my holidays! Thank you

Rob Cooper Oct 2023

Jet is very warm and welcoming - and answered all my newbie questions. We got some great, immediately-useable advice and the quality of our pics has improved significantly. It's turned me from someone who rarely takes pics (as I don't think I take very good ones) to someone who's looking to apply what they've learned knowing they can take _better_ pics.

Given your phone is almost-always on you, I highly recommend everyone does this. Worst-case scenario - you'll have some good company while checking out a vibrant part of London. Almost-certain cenario - you'll do that and come away with several tweaks that will immiedately up your photography game.

Thanks, Jet! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

June Anderson Sep 2023

Glynis Beazley Aug 2023

Jet was brilliant. She was approachable and enabling. She gave us confidence and was a fount of knowledge. I particularly liked the way she taught us to see things differently, to tell our story through photographs. This will take a lifetime to master but I've started my journey already.

Maja Hecimovic Aug 2023

I enjoyed this class and learned some new tips and tricks when taling photos with my mobile phone.

Anonymised ClassBento student Aug 2023

Tim was a great teacher! We wandered around some beautiful parts of Richmond that we’d not seen before, and he taught us some great tips and info about the phone camera and about how to take more interesting photos. Thanks v much!

Lydie Janin Aug 2023

Tim was amazing. He gave me wonderful tips to improve my photos both while taking the shot (using the the angle and making sure the environment setting is optimal) and after with the editing. I have also discovered new parts of Covent Garden which I had no idea existed!

I highly recommend him! Thanks a lot


Nigel Doe Aug 2023

Even though I’m not a novice, I learned a lot from this morning’s smartphone workshop with Tim in Windsor! Not just about my phone’s capabilities but techniques, composition and editing which Tim explained clearly. Varied photo opportunities with not too much walking in between. A fun morning! Highly recommended.

Smartphone Photography Workshop - Windsor review by Nigel Doe - Slough

Julie Babai Aug 2023

Jeanette was a welcoming tutor, putting us all at ease and ready to learn. I think the knowledge gained in the first 10 minutes introducing just some of the iPhone camera features made it feel value for money but by the end of our 2 hours we were amazed, so lucky we will be getting notes to remind us of everything learnt. Don’t hesitate to book, you will not be disappointed

Smartphone Photography Class: South Bank review by Julie Babai - London

Sandra Nwajiaku Aug 2023

2 ClassBento workshops attended • 2 reviews

Jet,( teacher) was patient and enthusiastic and made it all really simple and straightfoward. Encourage me to think about he shots took, to be curious and see scenes, even the ordinary as potentially different , magical in a way.
The venue was excellent - actually a private session cos just me. Great as I had not been past London Bdg to Shad Thames for a while .
I was so amazed by the close camera work using a particular lens for the phone , the ability to focus , create spectacular images. Textures, taking pics with the phone upside down. :-) :-)

And then she showed me the ability to edit said pics using 'Snapfeed' app - I'd been doing it all wrong - #mindblown, I have now graduated from a point and shoot person to using my phone to take pics in a completely different more effective way

Also really appreciate the superhelpful notes that were sent.
Total recommend the session

Smartphone Photography Class: London Bridge review by Sandra Nwajiaku - London

Tammy Seymour Aug 2023

We were pleasantly surprised to find that Gail was hosting just myself and my husband on this workshop, having had our booking elsewhere cancelled due to lack of interest. Gail was very friendly and knowledgeable. We had a lovely tour of Banbury, got to grips with the functions of our phones and consolidated it all while editing our pics over a nice cuppa. Lovely couple of hours spent learning something new, that we’re confident we can build on, with support from Gail if we need it. All in all, a great workshop, we would highly recommend it.

Highly recommend this if you want to learn some new trick to get the best from your smart phone and see London in a new way.

Dom Owebsy Jul 2023

Tim was a lovely teacher - really nice, very patient, informative and helpful.
The course was based around 2 things - how to use the iPhone photo app better - which enabled us to learn some really useful tips to take interesting photos and he also showed us some fun editing tricks. A good afternoon!

Photography class review by Dom Owebsy - Twickenham

Carole. Truet Jul 2023

Lovely photo safari with Jeanette.
I had a lot to learn starting from the very start and she was at the same time professional and friendly in teaching me the basis and giving me plenty of tips. I definitely recommend this workshop and would myself do it again in the future as there is so much more Jeanette can teach me.
Thank you

Natalie Ainsworth Jul 2023

The course was great and Jet provided loads of helpful hints and tips. She was good fun so it was a very enjoyable afternoon. I know so much more than I thought I would now.

Photography class review by Eniko Szatmari - London

Laurie Stephens Jul 2023

Excellent experience - a real eye-opener in terms of both the use of the iPhone camera / photo apps and also how to identify and take more creative, interesting photographs. Gail was a great tutor - knowledgeable and personable, and knew the area well and was able to make the most of our time (even the eventual rain!).
My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our morning and got so much from it - I would highly recommend this course to anyone who routinely uses their iPhone camera!

Brianne Evans Jul 2023

Really enjoyable course. The route was well planned, we learned a lot about how to use our iPhone cameras, and we got to enjoy a bit of central London. We would definitely do this again.

This was a standout of our time in London - don’t hesitate to book this!

I absolutely loved this class and learned so much! Jet is an excellent teacher and clearly passionate about smartphone photography. She helped me set up my phone to get the best from it and then we went on a very interesting tour of Soho, China Town and Carnaby Street, stopping along the way to take different shots. She gave me so many tips on looking for different perspectives, setting up shots to tell a story, playing with camera angles and using the settings to get different effects. We ended up in a coffee shop where she taught me various ways to edit my photos and I'm so happy with the results. I can highly recommend this class and I'm already looking to schedule another with the same teacher.

A really fun and interactive experience. My photos turned out great! Great way to learn how to make better use of your phone camera and discover a new part of town through a different lens (literally!)

Super informative without being overwhelming. Practical tips for framing photos as well as how to use my iPhone camera settings, editing on the phone and within an app. I really enjoyed it and would highly recommend it to anyone.

Maria Alvarez Feb 2023

The teacher was incredibly friendly and full of energy. She gave us lots of great advice while we practised our photography skills and kept checking in to ensure we were doing okay. Her explanations were easy to follow and understand, and I could retain the information for future use.

The location of the course, Southbank, was perfect for learning different techniques, as it had a bit of everything. The material provided by the teacher after the lesson was really helpful and meant we didn't need to take notes.

I think this experience is great value for money, and I'd highly recommend it to friends and family.

Hi, we hugely enjoyed the festive walk with the smartphone! So many hand tips and ideas on how to improve photos and create really great new shots! Who ever knew that smartphones can do so much?! The teacher was super friendly and provided great tips for us at a perfect pace and the right level!
The walk was finished with a lovely drink in a pub nearby and a chat on editing!

We are already looking forward to another class! Thank you J&A

I participated in a smartphone photography tour with Jeanette, A charming instructor with a desire to guide and explain in detail the possibilities of using a mobile including processing and editing over a cup of hot coffee. The weather was wonderful and allowed for fascinating photography, the results are interesting and instructive.
At the end she send us by email all the documentation of the training, well done

Jet was a fantastic teacher! Lots of energy and very flexible to what my wife and I were interested in.

We got lots of tips on how to be phone camera pros (quite a few we hadn't thought of) and how to go in afterwards to edit.

Would recommend!

Amazing class. Even if you use your smart phone everyday to take pictures. There is always something on your camera which you might not have known about. This is what I learnt on the course and I had taken some amazing images. Thank you so much for this enjoyable experience.

Was a very lovely experience and a nice chat about photography habits - can recommend it !

Chris Kelly Oct 2022

The class was great. Jet is a good teacher and Kings Cross provided opportunities fo all kinds of different things to be photographed. What we learnt was a few apparently quite simple rules and techniques. But they greatly improved our photographs. Jet kindly promised to follow up with some written material so that we do not forget what she taught us.

Jeanette was friendly and professional throughout the class. My sister and I went together, and we were delighted to be told on meeting Jeanette that our safari would be just for the two of us. We were given the option to do our safari in the City or Brick Lane, and we chose the latter. Within the first five minutes Jeanette had shown us things on our smartphones that we were unaware of, and showed us how to look at things in a different way. We learnt new techniques throughout the safari, using these new skills to create images we were really pleased with. The whole experience was fascinating and fun. I became totally absorbed learning how to control light, contrast, home in on detail, blurring and, afterwards, over coffee how to use an edit programme. Fantastic! Smartphone 'snaps' became images that were really interesting and creative. I would really recommend this class to anyone with a smartphone. Thank you, Jeanette.

Jeanette was absolutely lovely - showed us a lot of great tips both for phone photography and editing. She was able to modify the class slightly for both of us - one an iPhone user and one with a Samsung S7. They were tricks that we will definitely keep in mind and have already started using - highly recommend for any smartphone photographers! Attaching one of the pictures from the class here.

Zoe Knowles Sep 2022

Jet was fantastic! I didn’t expect to see such a difference in my smartphone photography skills after just one class, but Jet has made me a true believer. She taught us how to properly frame and take photos and adjust the lighting, and then how to edit them properly. 10/10 would recommend!

Jeanette was amazing and thorough with her explanations, and she was very attentive to all the details.

Highly recommend as a super fun activity with a friend or a partner

We had a private smartphone session with Jet. Her communication was fast and she was very punctual meeting at our chosen place. The whole arrangement was very easy to do.
Jet was a lovely lady and we both learned lots of fantastic tips. She was easy going with a lot of patience and made us feel at ease. It was a lovely way to spend a couple of hours mooching around London, learning how to use our smartphone cameras. Thank you Jet.

I absolutely loved this course. My husband bought it as a private gift for me, and it was such a lovely afternoon. My goal was to
Learn a few simply techniques on taking great photos of plated food, restaurant interiors and home cooked meals. We not
Only had a great meal and got to walk around Borough market, but also took some great photos and makes some nifty edits. Jeanette taught me some really nifty skills using Snapseed and Instagram and just the simple iPhone Camera on how to take great pictures. She was also very conscientious of time and teaching me as much as she could in the 2 hours we had available. She was also lovely company, very warm and friendly.
Overall, well worth the time and money, especially if you are a novice at food photography and editing.

Thank you so much. We are a group of friends in a team at work who chose this class for purely fun and learning to help our individual photography efforts. Really lovely, chilled session, easy to follow and very engaging. Loved seeing London which is familiar and learning some great ideas and tips for better photography. It's given me new inspiration for using my iPhone for even more creative results. Particularly liked the editing sessions. Thank you. Cliff

Hi Jet

All the group had such a fabulous time! Personally, I am so gutted that I couldn't make it in the end. You taught them all such valuable tricks when using their smartphones. They all loved following you on screen as you went around London showing them the different ways that they could use the camera on the phones and your infectious enthusiasm rubbed off on them all - they were all practising at home afterwards! Thank you for being such and enthusiastic and inspiring tutor.

Jo Avery Feb 2021

We all enjoyed the tips and tricks given by Jet for taking better photos. Exactly what we were looking for and with the added bonus of touring Camden - a trip down memory lane. Jet was brilliant, really enthusiastic and very good at describing where to find features on our different phones. Would definitely recommend.
