Thanks for Saturday, the day cleared up my questions on how to take photos in that kind of situation. I left early as I was very tired but I counted it as a successful afternoon.

Beginners Workshop was fantastic. Well-paced to ensure that a large amount of information was imparted whilst moving along at a good rate and keeping everyone moving along. The teachers are very clearly experts in photography - but what's more their passion for teaching is very clear. Have no hesitation recommending.

I am very pleased that I attended the basic photography workshop with Daniel. He was splendid with his enthusiasm to share his knowledge. The course really helped me to understand the nuances of photography. Highly recommend the course for anyone. SPW has a number of different courses. I am very sure that I will go back to them for more in due course of time.

Before starting the course, I had a basic knowledge of photography already but often was unable to translate what I saw with my eye into picture form. Glenn, our course leader week by week rebuilt my understanding from the ground up and made me much more confident in taking the pictures I wanted. Highly recommended course!
The beginner course was very good. I learned so much about my camera and how to take photos like a pro;) the teacher was very good, patient and fun! A lot of quality for a very fair price. Lovely people and relaxed atmosphere

I recently completed the beginners photography course. 8 weeks ago, I had a camera and only knew how to use one button. Now, I feel really confident turning my camera to manual mode and being able to get a shot that I can foresee in my mind, as opposed to clicking and hoping for the best. Daniel is a great teacher and very encouraging. To anyone considering this course, I highly recommend. Side note: If you take on this course, do not be discouraged by the first two to three weeks of content. I never thought I was going to get my head around ISO, Aperture and Shutter Speed but by about week four, it clicked for me and I'm sure it will for you too!

I’d been photographing as a hobby for 5+ years and decided to do some courses to improve. You’re learning from people who have done photograph their entire life and their knowledge is unbelievable. They also create an interactive environment so you make some friends along the way too.
