Excellent Beginners Photography

Learned loads with Lou on the Beginners Course. I can't believe how much I learned in such a short space of time. Lou has an impressive knowledge base and she knew my camera inside out. I loved the short assignments which helped me immensely. It was an enjoyable experience to be taught by an expert like Lou. Thanks for a great day!

Great One to One Beginners Course!

I had a great one to one beginners photography course with Lou! She took time to explain all the contributing factors to taking good photos in different settings, and all of the features specific to my Canon 100D. I highly recommend this course. Thanks Lou!

Excellent Beginners Course

Great day and just what I needed to start me on the way to taking better photographs. Lou explains the principles of photography in a clear and easy to understand way. She gave me lots of tips to help me understand my camera and how to get the best out of it. I found buttons i've never even used. Given me a good understanding of my camera & it's functionality and how to use it a more creative way. I look forward to doing more courses now!

Beginners Photography

The Beginners Photography Course was a fantastic learning experience. The course was well paced and informative. Lou got me away from using Auto immediately and throughout the day opened up different parts of my camera so that by the end of the course I was using lots of settings and buttons which I previously was unaware of. The projects Lou set were fun and engaging. I am now eager to practice what I have learned! Thank you Lou.

Brilliant Beginners Photography Course

I attended the Beginners Course in December and I learned lots about my camera and photography. Lou's approach to teaching is fantastic as she explains everything in a very clear way. I loved the projects she set as they moved me progressively from knowing nothing to knowing and understanding a lot! Thank you for a brilliant day Lou.
