Testimonials & Reviews 

some of the feedback from attendees of my workshops

Dear Paul,

I just wanted to write and say a big thank you for the course you held on the 12th May.
For saying I didn't know how to switch my camera on !!!!! I came away inspired :0)
We both thoroughly enjoyed the whole day and will be booking part 2 shortly.
My camera is now with me all the time and I am trying to put into practice what I learned on the day, my poor dogs run a mile when it comes out as they are fed up of waiting whilst i fiddle with the settings - lol.
I have attached three pictures of my dogs which are the best I have ever taken. I realise that I forgot to change the exposure compensation on my Chihuahua one !!! I am really proud of the fluffy Shepherd one though.
Thanks again for a fantastic day.
Sheila Morrison [Nikon Coolpix P300]


Hello Paul,

I did enjoy the course yesterday - I had forgotten how technical photography can be! Am now booked for the part 2 on 9 Jun at Attingham, so will see you then. 

Sandy Simpson [Fuji Finepix S9000]


Hi Paul,

Thank you for a fabulous day at the West Midlands Safari Park on 25th April. My dad and I thoroughly enjoyed the day and my memories of the day will remain with me for a long time.

I am really pleased with some of the photos I took and attach a few which I thought you might like to see.

Sorry its taken a while to send these to you. The day after the photography day I fell over and I have broken a bone in my arm so the last couple of weeks have been a bit hectic. So relieved it didnt happen before the photography day!

Thanks again for a wonderful day and all your help and guidance.

Kind Regards
Sarah Marriott [Fuji Finepix HS20]


[VIP Photography Safari] Hi Paul, thanks for a great day yesterday, had an amazing time with you and the other guys; I learned a lot :) 
Thanks Emma

[The ICC Birmingham Portrait using Home Studio Lighting & DSLR Part 1 & 2]
I really enjoyed myself this weekend too, and learnt new skills!
Your courses are efficient, clear and enjoyable. Thank you for the opportunity.
Looking forward to seeing you on another one soon. 
Nora


[The ICC Birmingham DSLR Part 1 & 2]
Thanks Paul, I thoroughly enjoyed both days.
I found the difference between the days interesting.
Day one gave me the impression that I was grasping what the camera could do. 
Day two taught me that on day one I didn't know how much I didn't know - but I finished the day with a much better idea of this, and provided a guide of how much work I need to do.
I'll be booking a private tuition day with you for lighting / flash. 
Charley


[The ICC Birmingham DSLR Part 1]
I enjoyed your course on Saturday very much so thank you and
I will now be booking your Portraits with Home Studio Lighting course.

Cheryl

[The ICC Birmingham DSLR Part 2]
Hi Paul, I found the course yesterday really informative and will be booking your Birds of Prey photography course that you referred to. 
Nigel



Hi Paul,
Portraits using Home Studio Lighting workshop.
I just wanted to say thank you once again, I found the course very informative and helpful. I have emailed the other members of my degree course to recommend your courses. 
Jason Shippey


Hi Paul
Re; Birds of Prey workshop Brockhampton estate.
I would just like to thank you for an exhilarating day yesterday enhanced by the fantastic weather. Apart from your sound and illuminating instruction, I thought that Trevor and his birds were absolutely unforgettable, something I have not had the privilege of experiencing previously.

I've attached an image of the day - my one reasonable shot of hundreds - definition lost at extremes I know , but one "I will put up on my wall." 
Denise Ryan

Thank you for such a great workshop today at Attingham Park - I thoroughly enjoyed it and learnt so much more than I thought I would! It is now great to be off 'automatic' and be more adventurous! Now all I have to do is practice! 
Henrietta Taylor

Just want to convey to yourself how much I have enjoyed your 2 part course set at Attingham Park.
Your presentation was spot on and I came away with more than I ever thought I would learn from a basic course.
Although I have only had my D90 for a few months what I have gained from your course has taught me more than Nikons manual will ever teach me!
Looking forward to booking myself into your composition course.
Steve Hamilton

I must say that what you taught us in the 3 workshops that I have attended has proved invaluable to me and I have been implementing it frequently!
Mehida Jaffer

I just wanted to say thank you so much for the one 2 one course yesterday. I have been given renewed confidence in my ability to take photographs with a DLSR. It was obvious as soon as I arrived that I still had oodles to learn and you set me right as soon as we began! 
I had a fantastic trip to Australia a real holiday of a lifetime and boy did I take photographs.......
It really made a difference and I felt much more confident when I was using the camera.
Tracey Lott

I recently came along to your DSLR part 1 course at Attingham Park and wanted to say thank you and that I enjoyed the course and got a lot out of it.
Dan Williams

I was at the course in Bewdley a few weeks ago and found it very enjoyable and feel like it has given me a good start with a DSLR. 
Laura Mattison


I would just like to say how I enjoyed the course "Explore your DSLR" last Saturday at Packwood House. I feel much more confident in operating my D70s and can now practise what I was taught on that day. I will see you next year for the second part.
Thanks for today. I really enjoyed it. Have submitted a few images to the competition!

Many thanks for the interesting course at Coughton Court last Saturday.

I have really been enjoying my photography since attending the DSLR Part 1 workshop, and look forward to learning a few more techniques on Part 2.

I will have completed the SLR courses part 1 and 2 by the time I attend the Birds of Prey day - but imagine I will still need quite a bit of support! I'm really excited about your workshop - I love birds of prey and once I can remember all that I have been shown with my Canon 450D I'm sure I will love that too.

I had a great day and learnt a lot, especially after switching to aperture mode, from manual. I have always shot manual from my first DSLR, and never considered anything else. I take a lot of photos in the industrial environment of the machines we produce. I have just taken some of a laser marking machine this morning (in Aperture mode) and it was much easier, as I could bang the ISO up to get the correct shutter speed.

I just wanted to write to say how much I enjoyed the course on Saturday. I have learnt heaps, and am now much more confident at having a bash at changing the various settings. I will definitely be booking the 2nd part of the course in the near future.

We had a great day and it was fantastic to be able to have a try with your camera.

I am emailing you on behalf of my Dad and I. We both really enjoyed your close-up and macro course and learned a huge amount. We hope to go on another course soon.

Thank you also for your advice on which course to book - it was a very useful chat this morning.
