  1. Nicola salt

    Absolutely fantastic day. Helen was able to recognise our own individual strengths and abilities and adapt our learning to this and build on the previous knowledge we had. She took us out of our comfort zone too.

      Thank you for the great review Nicola. I’m so happy that you enjoyed it and found it worthwhile.

  2. Kelly-Marie Smith

    Honestly the best course I’ve done for myself. Before doing this course I was a point and shoot (auto) user,no matter how many YouTube videos I watch I couldn’t get my head around aperture, iso and shutter speeds and how to use these to get the best photo. The sheer thought of using my camera in manual mode was enough to make me put my camera back in its bag. Since the class I haven’t used my camera without it being in manual mode and I’m loving it!
    The course is a fabulous relaxed and friendly environment with all the information you need to get you on our way!
    Helen not only explains it in such an easy way to understand (no scary photography lingo here) in the morning, but also takes you out to get on with it taking photos of actual subjects in the afternoon, teaching you composition, white balance the correct lighting etc.
    If you are interested in learning the basics for a beginner like me (also a keen mummy with a camera) then your in the right place and you won’t regret it!

      Thank you so much Kelly-Marie. This has made me so happy. Everything that you’ve said is exactly how I planned the day to be.

  3. Amy

    Helen was fantastic and the course was the perfect mix of relaxed and informative. I learnt so much that I’ve been able to apply to my photography since. Thank you so much for a fab day.

    • Helen

      Thank you Amy, you’re welcome. I’m so glad that you’ve been able to progress so quickly. Sometimes I think you just need someone to help explain it in a simple way.

  4. Helen Bonar

    The best photography course I have been on. Helen’s relaxed but knowledge style had us all at ease from the start. I started the day win the camera in auto before arriving and ended on manual and haven’t looked back. Helen explains things in a simplistic way, which really helped me get my head around things. I’ve signed up to online photography courses in the past and this is by far a much better interactive session where you can put what you learn into practice with expert advice and supportive course delegates around you. Great value for money, and I would definitely recommend. Thanks Helen

    • Helen

      You’re such a natural Helen, I think you’re going to fly now that you are using manual mode. Thanks so much for your kind words, it really means a lot.

  5. Mark Wright

    A really enjoyable and informative photography course! Helen managed to present the course to all different levels of ability in a fun and simplistic way, so it’s easy to pick up and apply all the different techniques, I think my wife needs to attend one of the courses now ?

    • Helen

      Thank you Mark, I really appreciate the great review. Definitely I’d love Mrs W to come along to one of the workshops!

    If you are a, beginner and want to know how to use your camera this is the course for you.
    Relaxed, non-technical approach to using a camera properly along with advice and techniques about taking good photographs.

    • Helen

  7. Sue Stannard

    The course was very enjoyable and informative. It enabled me to understand some of the settings on my camera and know how and when to apply them to achieve great pictures.
    Helen was very knowledgeable and gave guidance in a very relaxed , friendly manner.
    Would definitely recommend this course.

    • Helen

    I’ve always been interested in photography but the first time I have taken a course. I honestly didn’t know what was what on the camera. Helen explained everything in a straight forward way. We then had the opportunity to put our cameras into action photographing the models. What a great way to compound what we learned earlier in the day. I’m going to be using my camera regularly now to get the best shots I can. Practice makes perfect. Thank you so much Helen for sharing your time and knowledge.

    • Helen

      Thanks so much Angela, I really appreciate you taking the time to leave me such a lovely review. I’m so glad that you enjoyed it. Let me know if you have any queries as you get to grips with your fantastic camera.

    The day was excellent, Helen is a great teacher who made what initially seemed quite scary really accessible and fun. I would recommend her to anyone. She is warm, approachable and really knows her stuff. I learned loads and came away having achieved far more than I was hoping. Her young models were excellent and the whole process was relaxed, fun and informative.
    A brilliant day with a brilliant teacher

    • Helen

      Thanks so much Michael, what a lovely review, hugely appreciated. It was so great to meet you and I’ll pass on your comments to the models.
