"Doing the DSLR Improvers course with Paul was a great experience.

The tips I picked up on the course have really made a difference in the quality of my photography – and the course enabled me to push my photography into new areas, including studio portraiture and HDR, which is really exciting!

I’d recommend this course to anyone looking to refine their camera handling and learn new techniques  - especially as you get the chance to ask questions and receive one-to-one advice." MK
