I had a wonderful session with Guy who took us through theory and then took us near spots around Southbank to practice what we have learned. I have taken a similar course before, however this time, with Guy's explanation, the concepts were much clearer to me after 2 hours. Guy also encouraged us to know own cameras. He taught us how to make the night shots better and also some clever tricks to make shots more creative. Would highly recommend this course to beginners and anyone who wants to know a trick or two for better night shots on tripods.

I have thoroughly enjoyed both the day and night photography courses that Penny has. Both Penny & Guy were excellent teachers, especially for a novice such as myself, but there were also experienced photographers in the class that got to learn new things as well so the classes really cater to all levels! The knowledge and support was exceptional! Thank you again!

I learned how to use the four main functions of the camera, especially to create certain effects like painting with light. It was great to hear Penny's explanations of the functions and how it all comes back to the photographers' preference! Very thorough!
