What photographers say about our courses
David Long- "I just wanted to say a big thank you for yesterday, I had a thoroughly enjoyable day and learnt a lot.I'm not quite a workshop junkie but do love learning and have attended a fair few! I do have to say that this is probably the best session that I have been to. What shone through was the quality and attention to detail throughout the day from the venue, to the models to the quality of information/instruction and the opportunity to learn and shoot - you both did a fantastic job!"Matfen Hall is only 17 miles or half an hour North West of Newcastle making it an ideal location for a course. Exit the A69 at Heddon on the Wall and pick up the B6318, just before the Three Tuns public house, heading west towards Chollerford. Continue on the B6318 for seven miles; the turning to Matfen is on the right. From the A68, join the B6318 heading east at the Stagshaw roundabout, two miles north of Corbridge. Follow signs to Heddon on the Wall / Newcastle; the Matfen turning is on the left after two and a half miles.
Barry McCullock- "Brett. Just a massive thanks to you and Kristie for making todays shooting the most truly eye opening experience in every sense. The models were superb and helped make it massive learning curve in such a short time and done in the best of atmospheres. Invaluable."
Stephen - " My mind was blown away with the information and have already started ordering new equipment to get practising!!! I had a fantastic day and thought it was extremely well organized. Brett you were very inspirational and the information I hope comes in very useful for my future weddings. Kristie thanks for your kind hospitality it was very much appreciated and holding the flash all afternoon. I got some great images and loved every minute. Thank you again and I will be n touch soon Brett for some one to one training but think the day of shooting sounds good. "
