Running photography courses is my core business and I'm very passionate and enthusiastic about making my courses the very best they can be. I operate from my studio in Crowborough, East Sussex, which is right on the Sussex and Kent border. Direct rail link from London Bridge which only takes 1 hour and my studio is just a 1 minute walk from Crowborough station.
"Despite nearly 20 years of photography experience between us, we were both keen to improve the standard of our pictures, and Andy was able to bring a new perspective to the process, unearthing one of those 'eureka' moments for both of us that has already made a massive difference to the number of shots that work first time.
Andy's relaxed, uncomplicated approach cut through the fog created by years of reading articles and books on the subject, and gave us a new appreciation of the interaction between aperture, ISO, and speed, plus a master class on spot metering in challenging light conditions."
It's a busy time at the moment with people ordering photography courses as gifts for their loved ones. This is today's batch just off to the post office.
I've been busy producing the vouchers, the voucher wallets and packing them all together in lovely presentation gift boxes. The gift boxes have been really well received.
There is still time to order photography courses as gift vouchers and receive them in time for Christmas.
I have been running photography courses since early 2008 and my gift vouchers have always proved popular, whether it's for a birthday, anniversary or Christmas.
When purchasing gift vouchers you are obviously purchasing a service and not a physical gift as such, but when you part with money for a gift you want to be able to hand over something that looks nice to represet your gift. So this year I have added these lovely presentation boxes, voucher wallet/cards and gift vouchers so you have something special to give that special person.
Because I run photography courses for a living I am often getting asked for advice on what equipment to purchase, especially when it comes to cameras.
Sometimes this question comes from someone who doesn't yet have a camera at all or is looking to upgrade from a compact or bridge camera.
If you don't yet have a camera to speak of, maybe just a mobile phone. Then you will be facing the decision of which type of camera to go for. My advice is fairly simple, if you think that you might want to develop an interest in photography and produce some really good quality images, then it has to be either an SLR (Single Lens Reflex) or a CSC (Compact System Camera).
