  • positive review  Would recommend the Fundamentals Workshop for anyone with digital SLR. The course uses both classroom and practical sessions to explain how to get the full and best use out of the camera. Craig delivers the subject with such enthusiasm.

  • positive review  What an amazing day spent at the Photography Workshop. I have loved photography for years, but could never venture past the Auto button! Craig simplified the mystique of photography and has given me the confidence to get out and really make the most of my camera!

  • positive review  I've been an amateur photographer for years but decided to attend Craig's "Photography Fundamentals Workshop” having purchased a new camera and not really getting the best results with it. Craig takes you through how the different functions on your camera affect the output and how to use this to achieve taking the photographs you want. This has given me the confidence to experiment with settings that I had previously avoided. I also realised that over the years I had misunderstood several functions, so it was good to learn their correct use. The workshop includes both classwork and practical photography in the local village so you can put into practice what you have learnt as you go along. Craig is very knowledgeable and I learnt a huge amount, I am very grateful and thoroughly recommend the workshop.

  • 5 star review  We had a great afternoon out walking with Craig in a great location. Craig was very interesting and knowledgeable about the area and the wildlife within it. Great to meet him again although he was a young lad playing in a brass band at my local Pig Roast when we probably met last. We will be back Craig if you are happy to take us walking again sometime. Thank you very much. Valerie with David.

  • positive review  Anne and I really enjoyed Craig's workshop. It was prefessionally designed and presented, very helpful and a lot of fun. We learned a lot and are much more comfortable switching off the "auto" settings! Highly recommended for beginners and those with more experience. Well done.
