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!”

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. “

We also reserve the right to cancel any workshop if there is insufficient demand, especially if it means that our costs would be higher than our income.

If we have to remove a date due to this reason then we will look to book your place on a further course with similar content.

Under the cancellation act you do have 5 days to cancel your place after booking , after that cool off period the above applies.

Moving Forward

  • ANDY FOUNTAIN - Hi Brett and Kristie , Thank you so much for the fantastic day you arranged for Rachael and myself on Monday.  It was one of the best training experiences I have had as a pro photographer and we came away feeling confident in knowing how to drive the business on.  On the way home Rachael said we would be booking a course with you guys on a yearly basis and for her to say this is a big turn around. I think she really saw the benefit in having days like this. Thank you so much again for a life changing tremendous day.”
  • MATTHEW STAINER - "Just a quick note to say thank you for a fun, relaxed, informative, inspiring and a well fed day of top notch training. You have a great set up and love your studio and I would love to think that in a few years I might be somewhere up to where you are right now”

  • Peter Williams
    Just thought I would drop by and say how helpful I found your instructional DVD. I have my first wedding to do in a few weeks and your DVD has given me a great insight into how I should expect the day to go. I found it full of useful advice and I am sure I will watch it over and over again between now and the big day. So thank you for giving me a spoonful of your knowledge! Thanks again, Pete
