Alan is not just a good photographer but a fabulous teacher as well.Very helpful with his accurate and honest advice. You can tell he is passionate about what he does and one can feel it , that's what I liked the most about it and his knowledge which he is ready to impart to amateurs like me. I had fabulous 3 days of 1 to 1 with Alan and learned a lot from him. I would definitely in the future love to learn more from him. Thanks Alan !!

An excellent introduction to photography
Alan's beginner class was really informative and I learned a lot. It has inspired me to use something other than 'Auto' on my camera and I hope to attend some of Alan's classes in the future to improve my photography.

Christmas Photo Walk
Christmas Photo Walk through Lapworth on a lovely frosty winters day, Took us through some lovely British country side looking at various photo opportunities from landscape to close up shots, ideal for all levels with a friendly group of people and a pub lunch, The day photo walk really opens your eyes to what you can photograph. Would recommend to all.
4-week Beginners course - HIGHLY recommend
I enrolled onto the 4-week beginner's course with Alan, run from Kenilworth. I had attended a prior 1-day course with another company, and so my expectations were set around what I had experienced. However, after attending this course I was truly blown away.
Northumberland November 2016
Joined Alan and 4 others for weekend in Northumberland. A great experience in every way. The details about where/what we photographing were excellent and included weather forecast, tide times as well. We covered lots of locations over the 3 days. Got lots of really good tuition and loved the feedback sessions (on the days photos) in the evenings as it was dark early.
Something for everyone
I joined one of Alan's groups as a complete beginner, not even knowing I could take my camera off auto settings. Over the last year I have learnt so much from how to use the settings on my camera and the technical aspects of photography to now learning about photo composition and enhancing photos in Lightroom. I would recommend Alan to any level of photographer, he really does have something to offer everyone who wants to learn more.
Great weekend in Northumberland
Friday through Sunday, some great locations and a different eye on them too, rather than just the usual 'tourist' shots Good cottage to stay in. Adaptable to conditions and what people wanted to do.
Fantastic tutor - workshops very worthwhile
I have just come back from a weekend workshop with Alan Ranger - great experience and well planned to make the most of the light and conditions. Good size group (5) so there were others to learn from but with plenty of dedicated time from Alan when requested. Will definitely go on another workshop and would highly recommend to other photographers
Excellent class. Well paced, informative and inclusive
Very Clear and Informative Overview Session
Attended Alan's "Get off Auto" session in Kenilworth ,which provided a great overview of photography, informative, clear, with an engaging presentation style. Would recommend.
Batsford Autumn Workshop
Thanks alan. I was made to think more about what I wanted to capture and why. Also I learnt some more about my cameras functions and how they can help to make a better photo. I was good to discuss photography in general to help me in the future.
Alan, instantly made us relaxed and got us all in the mood to look for good subjects. The day was full but well paced and we covered so many topic and had load of technical help too.
A really easy guy to get along with.

A fantastic day workshop
I attended one of Alan's workshop at Batsford arboretum. Had a great day and came away with many new skills and ideas, which I feel will give me something to think about, build on and improve my photography. Only 4 of us, so a nice small group with plenty of one to one tuition as needed.
A lot of emphasis was placed on observation and carefully choosing and thinking about what a shot should show and say, and trying to develop an eye for an interesting picture (Rather than just point and click); we experimented with taking shots for colour, landscape vistas, and close up macro photography of leaves, flowers, and fungi.
In conclusion; a fabulous day, with good company in a beautiful location, and I would have no hesitation in recommending.
