Inspiring Creative Photography Course

I attended the Creative Photography Course in January and found it very exciting. I enjoyed the experience of learning how to see in a totally different way. Lou guided me out of my comfort zone into taking very different types of photos. I enjoyed every minute of the course and recommend it to anyone who wants to change the usual way they take photos. Excellent day.

Creative Photography Course

I did the Creative Expression Photography Course and really enjoyed the experience. The course helped me to improve how I compose a photo and how I look at things in general. Lou was great in helping me to look at my surroundings and interpret them in a creative and unique way. She has lots of great ideas and showed me different ways in which my photographs could and can look like. This was an eye-opening experience. It has changed my photography for the better. I shall definitely consider booking another course.
