  • "Participating in Paul's photography course was a game-changer for me. Despite my efforts to grasp manual settings on my DSLR through various methods, it was Paul's teaching that made everything click. His approach to explaining and demonstrating photography was incredibly effective. The real value came from applying these lessons through repetitive practice in the field. Thanks to Paul's guidance and a unique formula, what once seemed daunting is now second nature. I'm confidently using manual mode, a skill I attribute entirely to Paul's exceptional tutoring."

  • "Paul's photography 1-2-1 photography course really improved my product photography. Before, if I am very honest my photos weren't great, but after spending a day with Paul, I learned so much. We focused on white background ecommerce and lifestyle photography. Paul shared his own tips and tricks being very honest about past mistakes he'd made, which was super helpful. Now, I feel confident I can do it myself. I definitely recommend this course to anyone looking to get better at photography. Paul's teaching is easy to understand and really useful."
    Tyler Bennett - Bristol
  • "I was thrilled to receive a gift voucher for one of Paul's photography training sessions. My friend and I are both beginners and we gained so much from the day. I used to only shoot in automatic mode, but now I understand how to use manual settings, balancing aperture, ISO, and shutter speeds. The hands-on learning was far more effective than any online video or book I had tried before due to learning the theory and then putting it into practice immediately with practical exercises. It's amazing how much I learned in just one day with Paul."
    Emily Parker - Bristol
  • "I recently attended a wedding photography workshop with Paul, which was both fun and really educational. The day was set up like an actual wedding, complete with bride and groom models. We took preparation shots at a hotel, ceremony shots at a church, and then headed to a country house's stunning grounds for portrait photos. I learned how to use the manual mode on my camera, a skill I'll definitely keep using. This workshop has already helped me book a few weddings – it's been an amazing investment in my photography career."
