  • "I contacted Paul with a view to learning how to use my camera on Manual mode and finally get myself off the auto mode which I had been stuck on for many years. I had tried so many times to learn from Youtube videos and magazines how to do this and it just would not click in my head so when I met Paul in central London I was a little sceptical that I'd be able to learn it in a day. I was wrong, I learnt in 4 hours what had confused me for years and we spent the rest of the day practicing it all and learning about how to compose a great photograph too. Paul clearly enjoys teaching photography and has complete confidence in his abilities to help people learn and understand new concepts. Easily the most fun day of photography I have had for a long time!"

  • "This photography course with Paul was great, his approach to teaching is hands-on, making complex photography concepts easy to understand. I really enjoyed the practical sessions which took place in various locations around London and not only improved my technical skills, but also my creative eye. Paul's feedback throughout the course was constructive and personalized, pushing me to think differently about pre-existing ideas and perceptions I had. The course was well-organized, inspiring and extremely beneficial. It's definitely boosted both my personal confidence using my camera and my general photography skills. I would certainly recommend the course to others and am sure to book on another course with Paul once I have had time to practice everything I learnt."
    Kimberly Taylor - London
  • "My company enrolled me onto Paul's 1-2-1 photography course with a view to us doing our own in house product photography rather than using an agency. I'd attempted to try some photos on my own prior to the course and just didn't have a clue how to get them looking professional despite us paying a lot of money for a professional grade camera. Paul talked me through all the camera settings and then introduced me to the world of lighting which was a game changer and instantly made the photographs look much better. His teaching style was relaxed and he has an ability to ensure I understood everything and remembered it afterwards. I was very impressed with this course and was quite impressed with just how much I managed to learn within a single day."
    Brittany Lewis - London
  • "Participating in Paul's photography course was so helpful to me as we focused on street photography, which I was very nervous to try on my own and hence hadn't tried before. Paul guided me through the busy London streets, teaching me how to capture the shots I wanted without being obtrusive and upsetting people. His hands-on approach not only improved my technique but also my confidence in using my camera in public locations. This experience has deffinately influenced my approach to street photography, encouraging me to explore more and fear less when it comes to capturing life in the city. Thank you Paul for helping me take my first steps on what I hope will be a very rewarding journey."
    Megan Clark - London
  • "We hired Paul to come into our business and teach 6 members of staff how to take better photographs for our social media channels. Our group was a very mixed bag, with some people knowing how to use professional DSLR's and others barely knowing how to take a photograph on their phone. It was very impressive to watch Paul teach the group in a clear, concise and easy to understand manner. Nobody felt like they couldn't do anything he explained, the beginners learnt so much and the more experienced people even more! This was due to the fact that he managed to spend so much time one on with people as well as explaining things as a group. Everybody got out of it what they needed and our social media photographs are already so much better than they were."
    Gerald (IAG) - London
