Student Testimonials

From Jenni, following a 1-2-1 session: "We walked, talked, laughed and most of all I learned so much from the fabulous photographer that Gary is. Cannot recommend enough..."


From Kevin, who reviewed his Mazzard Farm Beginners photography weekend on Tripadvisor: "Very friendly hospitality I cannot wait to have return trip on one of the photo safaris that they are going to be running. Photography training was with Gary and was first-class"

Questionnaire feedback from a student on a Beginners Photography Weekend: "You are an excellent trainer and clearly love what you do. I left knowing so much more and understanding so much more. An inspirational weekend!"

Questionnaire feedback from a student on a Beginners Photography Weekend: " it was an excellent balance of theory and then putting it all into practice. I thought it was a lot to cover in a single weekend, especially being aimed at beginners, but it all worked incredibly well"

Sue, from St Ives who attended a Beginners Photography Weekend said "I can thoroughly recommend this course with Gary – he is very patient and explains different processes very clearly. He has given me the confidence I needed to start to really enjoy my camera.  Gary has a wealth of experience and whether you are a beginner or just want to sharpen your skills or try something new then this course is for you"
