    The Night Photography Course was fantastic. I was so impressed with the results in my photos that it was hard to believe that I had actually taken them. The skills that I have taken away from this course will be invaluable. I would highly recommend it to anyone wishing to learn the art of night photography. Thanks Paul for a brilliant evening and passing on your skills and knowledge to teach others.

    The Night Photography Course was brilliant. I learned a lot of new tricks and have now started shooting in Raw thanks to Paul’s advice. My friends were also very impressed with the pictures I posted on Facebook.
