  • "I was shocked at just how much you can learn in a day when you spend time with somebody who just knows what they are doing. Paul has clearly lived and breathed photography for many years now, he talks about it passionately and teaches in a manner that is easy to understand. He leaves you in no doubt whatsoever that when you leave the training at the end of the day you are going to be able to replicate everything you've learnt on the day on your own. He does this through practice and repetition, doing the same thing over and over again in different conditions, meaning no matter what lighting conditions you find yourself in, you know how to handle it. I was super impressed with the training session and leave motivated and inspired to keep learning more."

  • I didn’t know how to use my camera when I met Paul at the beach in Padstow. I’d tried watching YouTube and reading some books but it seemed like I already needed to know a bit about photography in order to understand what they were talking about. I stumbled across Paul’s website online and having read the many great reviews, signed up for a course. I’m so glad I did, within 4 hours Paul had explained aperture, shutter speed and ISO to me and I was comfortably shooting in manual mode. I’ll need to keep practicing to make it stick I know, but I feel confident now that I can progress with my photography and take full control of my camera rather than letting it do it’s own thing. Thankyou Paul for the great workshop.
