"I have just completed the beginners course on the weekend and found every aspect to be of the highest level. Paul is a teacher of photography who has a passion of the subject that he wants to pass on to all who attends his courses. The class room theory is delivered in a relaxed atmosphere and blends easier into the afternoon practical session resulting in some spectacular photo being achieved by participants. Can’t recommend this course highly enough and will be doing the advanced course as soon as I return from overseas. Thanks Paul."

− Greg Beahan (Beginners photography workshop)

"Fantastic workshop – very hands on with learning how to use my camera, and with the small group Paul was able to assist one on one as necessary, which was great! Thoroughly recommend it for anyone wanting to get the best out of their camera."

− Tamara Wilson (Beginners photography workshop)

"Great course for beginner’s. Easy and relaxed learning environment. Can not rate this course high enough. I will be back for another course in the near future!"
