"Sean is extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic! He explained the intricacies of my DSLR camera in a way that was much easier and accessible than the camera's manual, gave me tips on how to get the best out of it, and I came away with increased enthusiasm to simply have a go!" "


"Although I have studied photography, Sean’s skill is in making sense of it all. The course is educational, but in a friendly, inspiring and enthusiastic way ~ it was hard to end it actually!"


"I’ve always been a bit nervous of my camera until I did Sean’s one-to-one course. He gave me a lot of confidence to use it and taught me a lot of worthwhile information, both about the camera and photography. I’m really pleased I did it, thanks a mill"
