This was the first course that I had attended on Photography and being a ‘beginners’ course it was ideal for me. The tutor Andy was very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful and made you feel at ease on the first session. It was a small group which I personally prefer, we covered lots of interesting topics, we were shown/demonstrated lots of different photography equipment and a big advantage for me was being shown the menu/setting on MY camera. This enabled me to be more familiar with my camera, especially when on my own, which in turn gave me more confidence and knowledge to use it.

We were given a small task to take away and complete each week and also took photos during the sessions, both of which Andy would give his honest and constructive feedback on. These exercises greatly helped me to understand the good/and not so good aspects of my photography which in turn was a very valuable ‘hands on’ learning experience.

I learnt lots about different aspects of photography from the course, also provided was an online folder which you could log into to refresh yourself on any details of the topics covered. This was very useful and will be great to look back on when needed.

This course was just the introduction I needed and it gave me a clearer understanding of photography. I would definitely recommend it to anyone and I am keen to continue to put into use all that I have learnt. This course has given me a great enthusiasm to pursue my interest in photography.
