What our students are saying

This course has changed the way that I will take photos forever. Just one week in and I really do feel that my photos have improved dramatically and that I am so much more in control of the photos that I am taking.
– Nikki Gorrett

Absolutely loved it. Extremely professional yet friendly and approachable. Course material and videos are really impressive and helped me understand things I’ve read in the past but failed to really grasp. The only downside is that our course has finished. Massively enjoyed the last three weeks.
– Sian Whiteley

An absolute must for any parent who wants to get the best out of their camera. A real inspiration, the course left me with a greater understanding of my camera and the pictures I take and a real excitement to try out all I’ve learnt.
– Kate Newman

Well – I loved this course – spellbound throughout! Having had my camera for four years and never known how to use it – in four hours I do! That is amazing! You made something seemingly so complicated so very simple! Thank you so much for re-igniting my love of photo making.
– Shirley Cook

The course was EXACTLY what I needed. It explained the mysterious settings on my camera and has filled me with enthusiasm to try out what I’ve learned.
– Kate Popplewell

WOW! Mind-blown. Inspired. Completely and utterly buzzing. Best Christmas present EVER. If you want to create magic and be the keeper of memories, seriously, go on this journey. And no, I’m not being paid or in any way incentivised to promote the course. It just rocked my little world sideways as well as up and down!
– Claudia Holden

Amazing well run course. When you went through the theory it all made sense, and I was thinking oh this might work, but somehow as soon I started taking photos, it was like multiple lightbulb moments! Wow it works! Thank you so much! I would definitely be interested in a follow-on course.
– Laura McLennan

I feel completely inspired to take not just more, but *better* photos of my children, and to tell their story.  A fantastic course, well taught, with just the right emphasis on enough theory to understand the practical application of the camera and how to take that elusive picture.  Thank you Claire!
– Sarah Shelton

Loved it! The class and teacher was excellent. It was great to learn from someone who has the talent and knowledge but is not patronizing at all. So helpful and it was fun!
– Becky Francis

Everything was super professional. The training videos were excellent, the little booklets we were given were fab and the homework assignments were vital to what I learnt. I can see a big improvement in my pictures already. I can thoroughly recommend this course – I loved it!
– Kirsty Stone

I had been so excited about coming to one of these workshops. Claire had come highly recommend. Claire’s warm and personal manner had me at ease from the beginning and I felt I could ask anything. She has great understanding of not just the camera, but how to achieve stunning shots capturing the mood in a magical way. I can’t wait to start taking photographs using the techniques she has shown me.
– Michelle Cresswell

The course was brilliant, I did it last month and have learnt so much. I highly recommend it!
– Nicola Rathbone

I already knew my way around a camera but my photography focus up to now had been wildlife. The course worked at many levels and I learnt a huge amount about photographing my son. It also inspired me to get out my proper camera more often at home – I’d recommend it to anyone.
– Jenny Foster

I have already recommended the school to several friends, thank you for a brilliant day.
– Rachel Detnon

The class was really great for understanding what my camera is capable of and to make me take more time to try and get the photos I want rather than potluck.
– Amanda Spells

I thoroughly recommend this course to any parent who wants to take better photos of their children. Claire is an excellent teacher and was brilliant at offering tips to help me. Thanks so much, I had a great time and my photos already show such an improvement!
– Hannah Slater

The class was run in a friendly, relaxed environment with no pressure
– Adrian Standing

It was an awesome course for a beginner like me! It gave me confidence to try new things and made me see light in a very different way!! Thank you Claire, I really enjoyed myself
– Kara Sayers Wood

The class was very well presented. Thank you for an enjoyable and informative morning.
– Geoff Hunt

Excellent presentation, relaxed and to the point with straightforward explanations and reasoning.  I would suggest any level of photographer will benefit from the course.
– Dave Hiscock

I learned lots of new skills and came away feeling really inspired. I thought the relaxed environment was fab too. All the attention to detail really makes the course feel special and reflects Claire’s passion for her subject.
– Jo Upsdell

I’ve had so much fun learning how to use all the functions on my camera. Claire’s teaching is very friendly and personal. She has equipped me with the skills to understand how to take a much better photo of my family and the motivation to keep practising and improving. I thoroughly recommend a course with Claire and you will be able to see an improvement in your photos immediately! Thank you!
