Your camera course Gift Voucher was truly a great birthday present & I enjoyed every minute. The wonderful pictures I took can only be a testament to your great teaching skills. I've already recommended you to family & friends.
p.s. please say a huge thanks to Jacqui for tea, cakes and lunch.
I learnt more in the first two hours of this course than I've picked up myself in 10 years of photography.Very helpful and practical. Paul Walker
This is my third course and once again an excellent session at the right pace. After each course I have seen a steep improvement in my photography and I know this course will prove to be the same. Only problem is you want to do another course as soon as Glen shows you what else is achievable.
Hi Glen. A brilliant Day!
I can't believe how much I've learnt in just one day and how good my pictures were. Thank you again for such a brilliant & professionally presented programme on Saturday.
I'm delighted with the amount of knowledge I came away with & that I even managed a couple of professional looking photos . Having received this one day course as a birthday present, it was the best present I had this year. Carol B.
A much needed course for me to learn how to use my camera in the best way .Everything was explained very plainly and I would be interested in attending further of your photography courses. Ian Harding.
Hello Glen. It goes to show it's never too late to learn. This 75 year old fellow has had a most enjoyable & enlightening day.
A wonderful photography course with excellent one to one tuition to help me pursue my personnel aims of moving subjects and focusing on difficult objects like flowers and getting the background blurry. I feel much more confident using a wide variety of settings on my camera and I'm very pleased with my pictures. Thank you!
This photography course was a lovely birthday present from my daughter. I've had a wonderful day and I feel a lot more confident in using my camera. I now know what to look for when taking pictures and how to spot different compositions. Glen was very good at explaining and showing us different ways of looking at things.
Very informative course which enabled me to understand the "black magic" of my DSLR. Eddie Wall
Excellent balance of tuition and hands-on advice. Roland Stringer
A friendly and well paced photography course. Most imporantly no-onefelt stupid asking what may have seemed simple questions. To top it all it was personalised to each person individual camera. Kenneth Darling.
An excellent course with clear and concise training. Everything was explained simply enough even for me to understand.
A really well thought out & presented camera course and the practical tips in the field were great. The Picasa demo was really worthwhile and a lovely lunch too. I need to start saving for a DSLR now. Damien Skinner
Even in the worst weather conditions possible Glen managed to get us taking photos and even more remarkably they turned out pretty well which is a testament to Glen teaching. Duncan Bennett.
