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
3rd Nov 2016
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.
I also learnt a lot more about what my camera can do in terms of settings, exposures, focusing and light metering. I thought I knew my camera fairly well, but now can get so much more out of it.
In conclusion; a fabulous day, with good company in a beautiful location, and I would have no hesitation in recommending.
Excellent information into using a camera

Alan made the class easy to follow and provided exercises that made me want to go and try them out immediately! Alan is enthusiastic and very passionate and that makes this class more interesting and exciting. I was surprised with the amount we covered considering the price. Absolutely amazing! I totally recommend it to everyone!

The introductory course was well structured and gave a great overview of photography.
It had a broad focus, so not just about the technical camera settings, but more about the planning and design of what you're trying to achieve.
Alan was clearly very passionate about photography, seeing it as an art form and expression of yourself.
Enjoyed the three hours and gave me exactly the introduction I was looking for.

I have just attended the 3hr beginner course and found it excellent. The delivery and passion for photography shown by Alan was evident throughout. I found the session informative and enjoyable and thoroughly recommend this course to anyone interested in starting a photography journey. I am looking forward to attending more courses and seeing where I can go.

I attended one of the bluebell workshops run by Alan. Not only was the location stunning, we also had it to ourselves. The maximum number of participants is 6, varying from complete beginner to the more experienced photographer, meaning that every one of us had plenty of individual attention tailored to our own particular requirements. Alan s style of teaching is relaxed but very informative. Would highly recommend this and other workshops which Alan organises.
