  • 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.

  • positive review  What a wonderful experience! A great one-on-one workshop for me, a luxury, but I learned so much. Craig is a wonderful teacher and mentor, everything is very easygoing and very well explained. I would highly recommend Crag and his workshop! It is a great way to learn the more 'complicated' issues on a DSLR, well they turned out not to be so complicated .. Fun day... am now of France to put the knowledge into practice! And Craig, hope to see you soon again for a follow up!

  • 5 star review  Very enjoyable and informative day.....Craig was a great teacher and I am now way more confident about not relying on Auto mode and to actually use my brain! Thank you for a lovely day of learning... Caroline (28th May 2018)

  • 5 star review  Had a fantastic day with Craig and our small group of 6 people. Craig is a very patient and informative teacher, nothing is to much trouble. The venue was great above a bar/cafe so refreshment and food easily available. Spent most of the morning in the classroom (hall) and then went outside to practice what we had been taught. Lunch then back to classroom for more theory. Then out again to take more photo's. At the end of the day I had learnt so much about my camera that I didn't know and now have the confidence to go out and try to take better pictures. Really good value for money we started at 9.30 and finally left to go home at 6pm! Thank you Craig.

  • 5 star review  Had a fabulous day with Craig and a small group of people yesterday. It was a fun, educational day. Craig explained things in a way that was easy to understand (for a complete novice) and I learnt loads. Just need to practise now and hope to have a follow up class in the future 😉Thank you so much Craig and hopefully we will be able to join your next nature walk
