Here is a selection of comments I have received from people who have been on my Photography Course.
If you are interested in the course please see the news item giving you more details.
If you require any more information please contact me through this website. Thank you.

Many thanks for making me feel so welcome in your home. Coffee breaks were more than welcome and lunch was delicious. I had a really fantastic day! I learned so much. My camera has not 'worked so hard' since I purchased it! I now have the confidence to go out and take better photographs.All due to the knowledge and patience of 'Tez. Di.

Did the photography course with Tez a couple of weeks ago. Super day, learnt a huge amount covering all aspects of digital photography. Tez has a great amount of knowledge and is very clear and precise with his teaching. Also a very nice lunch. Thanks again Tez and Julie."

Just to say a big thank you for a very enjoyable day. Your teaching was very clear and concise with lots of tips to immediately get me thinking and improving the photos I take. I particularly enjoyed the morning session thinking about composition. The example photos you showed were really useful at demonstrating the theory side of the course. I had read about aspects you were talking about before but it never really stuck in my head. Following the course it all seems much clearer and I am inspired to get out and practice what I have learned.
Thanks again, a brilliant day course and I look forward to doing another day after I have had a bit of practice! Claire.

The photography tuition was great and I'll be recommending it to my friends.
I didn't realise I could get such good results through my camera.
Thanks again for a great day.
Ian


I found the course thoroughly interesting and enjoyable, it was great having one to one class as I felt I got more from it in terms of questions and answers, and going out taking pictures was a fantastic way to apply some of the theory. I would recommend it to any photographer wanting to start off or learn more about photography. Sarika.

We enjoyed a fantastic day with Tez on his one day photographic workshop.
The workshop exceeded our expectations in every way. Tez is a great tutor and showed us amongst many things, how to compose better pics, we learned about aperture, shutter speeds, timing and light, what to leave in and what to take out and what the symbols and switches on our camera are for..... we now feel much better equipped and very enthusiastic about going out and using our New Nikon camera.
The welcome was warm, hospitality (Julie's home cooking for lunch) was creative and yummy! hopefully we will be back for the next level course. Susan and Eddie.

Thank you again for my photography course. Having spent a full day with you, I now feel more confident, about taking photographs. I enjoy applying and being curious with all the information and techniques you taught me (and I promise I will no longer centre my subject!). My photo's have definitely improved and I feel very inspired to continue snapping (and reviewing!). Also thanks for the very lovely lunch, homemade cakes and drinks throughout the day. I would recommend this course to anyone interested in photograph. Tina.

I had a great day on Tuesday and I learnt so much.
Couldn't have asked for a better session. Ella.

Very interesting and enjoyable day,you pitched the content and pace just right.
Going out and putting into practice what I learnt with plenty of opportunity to ask questions was great. Paul.

As a keen amateur I really learned a great deal,particularly about composition-including overcoming old habits about framing the shots.
I enjoyed the structure of the day,with sessions on aperture and speed priority interspersed with photo processing.
One of the highlights of the day was Julies cooking and the soup,bread and cakes were superb.
All in all a terrific day and one that I have been recommending to my friends. Peter

Thanks for the introduction,it was just the kind of tuition I needed,after taking loads of photographs over the years that were pretty boring I can see that by using the guidelines you suggest composition becomes a lot more interesting.A great day. Rob.

Your introduction to apertures and shutter speeds etc was just what I needed and has given me the confidence to play around with the camera and experiment.
Thank you for a wonderful day,despite the weather. Lesley.

Having just completed a one day course on basic photography with you I just had to write and say a big thank you for making it a fun day despite the cold.
The theory was brought vividly to life by the practical session,a perfect balance.
I can't imagine anyone not profiting from this enjoyable day. Mary.

Overall the workshop was a really nice experience which I would recommend to anyone.
Very clear information on each element of photography e.g. DoF,leading lines etc. Oliver.

Thanks so much for the day.I would say that it was informative and interesting and that I really enjoyed it. Steph.

I found the course to be informative and accessible,pitched at the right level and brilliant overall.I will be recommending you to other people. Paul.
