A couple of phone calls with Simon and three fantastic locations were agreed. The morning of the workshop I was a little disheartened by the weather, but Simon’s enthusiasm soon surpassed this. For me this wasn’t about coming away with outstanding shots but to have the confidence in the use of filters, long exposure and looking for great compositions. Simon's passion for photography is for all to see if you’ve watched his videos and I had a brilliant day, albeit 14 hours including traveling!

My wife gave me the day out with Simon as a birthday present. I have been interested in photography for many years but my results did not reflect my efforts. It is clear from Simon’s website that he is a very talented photographer and for an enthusiastic beginner like myself, it might seem a bit intimidating to spend a day with someone of his ability.  Right from the introductory call however, Simon put me at ease and focussed on what I wanted to achieve. We started early to catch the dawn’s light, taking some shots of St.Annes old pier which had never occurred to me that it would be worth photographing. Simon took me through some of the technical and composition aspects before we headed up to the Lakes. Because it was my particular weakness we concentrated on composition and he showed me how to get the best out of the scene and work with the light. My knowledge and confidence increased throughout the day and I felt really pleased with the results. In fact I was so pleased with the last shot of the day at Tarn Hows that I am having it printed and it will be proudly hanging on my wall at home. Simon is a great teacher and I now feel very well prepared to get much better results. More than that he has inspired me to get out there and do lots more. Well worth the investment.

Earlier on this year I was fortunate enough to be able to attend three days of one to one training with Simon in the Lancashire and Cumbria countryside. It did not take Simon long to ascertain at what level he should set the training and guidance at. Simon is very knowledgable, informative, friendly and easy going and I learned a considerable amount from him. Throughout the day he guides you through composition, camera set up, including types of filters to use and reviews the images taken. In my case he set me small tests towards the end of the day to see how much I had taken on board. I feel that my photography in general has improved since attending the one to one training. Overall, I was very impressed and thoroughly enjoyed the one to one training with Simon. Would I recommend the training to someone else? I already have. Would I use Simon's one to one training again, the answer to that is most definitely. I thoroughly enjoyed the three days one to one training with Simon and got more from the training than I was expecting. Highly recommended.
