Where you'll be

The beach at Bournemouth and the seafront buildings all have their own unique photographic possibilities. Take a gentle stroll along the promenade and allow the sea air to work its creative magic. Before long beautiful images start to reveal themselves. I love to pass on my photography experience to beginners and enthusiasts and help them gain an understanding of their cameras and the process of making memorable images.

John’s photography experiences are really great. He has a real sense for what makes a good photo and is able to adapt to different scenarios. Previously he did a good job with SLR photography but this time I was interested in phone photography and he adapted to that in an excellent way. I would thoroughly recommend John’s experiences as he has a great eye for what makes a good photo.

As a trainer I can say: "A workshop is a complete success if you as a participant completely forget that you have paid money for it". As I am a complete beginner, John explained my camera to me (it lives!!!) and explained the most important functions with illustrative material. Then we went looking for a motive, he knows of course great photo motives... implemented what we had learned and discussed the image composition. All in all, I felt like I was walking along the beach with a good friend... Thanks John, for this wonderful experience!

I booked this for my 12 year old son who had just received a professional camera for his birthday. John was great with him. Very patient and knowledgeable. He came away from it feeling much more confident about his skills.

John's passion for photography was contagious. I was amazed how much I learned in the two hours. It was a great balance of explaining how to use the camera and then immediately putting that new knowledge into practice. I was thrilled with how my photos turned out. Now just to remember what I learned.... I guess I'll have to come back!

Had a lovely time with John, had an evening session which meant I captured a different perspective on the normal picture you normally take. He was patient and very knowledgeable. Thanks John
