This photography course was fantastic. My skills improved dramatically as did my confidence which I attribute to the encouraging environment that was provided

The course was practical and “hands on”, and the theory was quite advanced but delivered in an easy to understand manner.


Not only have I taken away many skills, but also great friendships with people who share my passion.

I joined this course to learn how to get better photos of my grandchildren. Not only did I get that but no I’m earning good money in my retirement taking portraits and shooting model portfolios.


Waren has given me the confidence and the skills to really have fun with my camera.
