I just wanted to say thank you so much for such a great beginners course yesterday, I really had the best day.
Your style of presentation suits me well, and I appreciate that you gave us all time to understand the concepts and then put them into practice. I can't wait to keep going and hopefully get this knowledge into my subconscious. I will definitely be seeing you at a follow up course.

Highly Recommended.
Paul is a man of great patience but best of all he has tremendous skill as a teacher.
His ability to explain things clearly and simply means you will walk away with so much more knowledge and ability in a matter of a few hours. Paul is also very generous with his time and knowledge in offering advice on suitable cameras and equipment to buy based on a person's needs and budget.
I have now attended a small group workshop for beginners and also a one-on-one private tuition - both of which have been fantastic. I look forward to attending the Beyond Basics Workshop in the next couple of months.

Paul is amazing. I've done two courses now, and will definitely do more.
He is very knowledgeable, and will answer all your questions, takes the time to familiarise you with your camera, and explains concepts in a way that is easy to understand and that sticks with you.
He has been very responsive to email queries and provides excellent advice. Highly recommend.
