Photography Workshop Testimonials

Hi Ian,

Thanks so much for the beginners photography workshop in beautiful Bristol. I can't believe how much I learnt in just 3 hours, from becoming familiar with the settings on my camera to taking lovely (for me) images instead of random snaps. Your flexible approach and encouragement made me try all sorts of pictures and to experiment with the settings, light and shade, subject matter and perspective. I really enjoyed our amble around Clifton looking at things in new ways and taking photos from a different perspective, this has made the biggest difference.

I've found myself popping the camera into my bag and practising my new skills, and I'm even entering my village photography competition next month! Your enthusiasm for photography is infectious and I couldn't have found a better teacher.

Thanks again,
Helen

Testimonial from my Beginners photography workshop in Bristol.

"Today the 18th February 2017 I have just got back from a Beginners Introduction Course with Ian Wade. I am a beginner and wanted to progress from only using auto mode. We started at 07.00 in order to catch some dawn lighting. We went to various locations and the tuition was superb and built up in stages.

Nothing was too much trouble to explain and I now feel confidant enough to leave automatic mode and experiment with manual settings. Creating different effects using white balance and blurred foreground and backgrounds was covered.

Ian is vey patient, has lots of tips and ticks and his enthusiasm certainly rubbed off on me. He is very pleasant and easy to get on with too.I would certainly recommend this course. I really enjoyed it. Many thanks Ian."

Regards David
