Hi Adrian,
Many thanks indeed for the links and for the course which was very enjoyable and has certainly spurred my interest in getting back into photography.

Thanks Adrian,
Just to say thanks again for a cracking day on Saturday. We both really enjoyed it and learned loads.
Cheers Dave

Hi Adrian,
Thank you again for the excellent workshop last weekend. I have learnt so much and have been out today to practice some of the techniques you taught me.
Following your tuition on the Photoshop, I have purchased Elements 15 and have already had some pleasing results.
Today I took some photos from height overlooking Teignmouth seafront using the Aperture settings you showed me, and have compared them with existing pictures I have taken. The clarity and light is so much better with the new settings, Thank you.
Kind regards, Gary.
-
Hi Adrian,
Just to say thanks so much for yesterday, definitely for both myself and Pippa best day for several years.
It was not just the depth of your knowledge and ease of teaching but that you have inspired Pippa and given me and her a focus for many years to come.
Pip is already editing away this morning and both of us are still buzzing!!
Don't worry if I was not at my most chatty Being an engineer I like to understand all the technical side in detail so was concentrating on everything you were saying and trying to get it to stick in my head!
Best regards
Andy

Hi Adrian,
I would like to thank you on behalf of
myself, Roger, Ian and Martyn for a great days photography and
instruction on May 6th. The weather was just what was required and the
photo settings great. We enjoyed it so much that we are coming back in
October for an autumn session.
Lots of post processing to do now,
thanks again. Nigel.

Adrian
We had an absolutely brilliant time and Liza said on the way back that it was one of the best birthday presents she has ever had.
We will certainly be in touch again once we get back … with hundreds of raw files !!!
Cheers
Mike and Liza

Adrian,
I just wanted to say many thanks again for the photography day on Friday. I enjoyed the experience enormously, and I feel that my photography has advanced significantly as a result. It has brought me a much needed burst of light, for which I am most grateful.
Kind regards Emma.
-
Thank you very much for the course which I really enjoyed. I learned a lot and am starting to find my way around my camera which is great. Using RAW has also allowed me to take some decent images of my glass work which I can actually tidy (you are right jpeg is a nightmare.) I found the course addressed my needs as a beginner and the portrait session was very useful as it is not always possible to take landscapes. Helen
-
After a day on Dartmoor with Adrian I feel that he has helped me take my landscape photography to a whole new level. I have come away from the day feeling that I have learnt a lot and am now equipped to go out and shoot and process images that I can be really happy with. Adrian was very patient with me and I felt that I was able to ask questions to help develop my skills throughout the day.
Kind regards Jules
-
Hi Adrian,
Many thanks for your extremely informative and entertaining photo course. I took delivery of a polarising filter for my camera today and, even with only an initial review on a wet Monday morning, am very impressed with the difference it makes. I'm now looking forward to having a good play with this and the other landscape tips you gave Kate and me during the day.
I have identified what I think is a good site for a spectacular sunset picture looking towards the Great Orme in North Wales - all I now need is suitable weather conditions, and to be there with camera and tripod. Being North Wales, I don't have to worry about clear blue skies; they're a very rare event!
Again, we both found the day most enjoyable and stimulating, so many thanks.
Best regards - Steve W
-
Hi Adrian
Just to say again, thank you very much for an inspirational Dartmoor workshop yesterday.
My next step - lighter equipment! Thanks for all your advice.
Kind regards, Denise
-
Hi Adrian,
Re the photos from today I am pleased that I have some goodies. Thanks for the day, I enjoyed it and learnt a lot.
Kind Regards,
Bob
-
Adrian
Just a quickie to say ‘thanks for yesterday’ I am looking forward to working through my shots with some of the new techniques you passed on and also adopting a new, more reflective style whilst actually photographing.
I am not sure whether the mantra for the day was , incredible skies, wait for the sun to break through or scaffolding! Seriously, again thank you, I learnt a lot.
Regards Geoff
-
Adrian
Just to say thank you for the Dartmoor workshop I had with you last Saturday I found it all very informative
and now know my camera a lot better and am looking forward to trying out a lot of the techniques you showed me .Kind Regards Trevor
-
Adrian,
I speak for Steve as well with this, we had a great day, learnt a lot and enjoyed every minute of it (apart from Steve walking up the final Tor).
Our cameras are still set on RAW and will remain that way for all our landscape shots.
Thank you very much.
Pete
-
Hi Adrian, as a past pupil of your landscape workshops, I would like to say a big thank you for passing on your talent. Today I have a photo on a two page spread in Devon Life magazine's August issue. You taught me so much about my camera on your course, well worth the time & money. Thank you. Tina
-
Hi Adrian,
Thanks for a great Workshop on Thursday, we all enjoyed it very much, we have posted a few of our images to the Photographic Society group on Facebook and already getting some nice feedback. I am so glad you suggested Dartmoor, it worked so well in the sort of lighting we had that day and we are all very pleased with what we learned too.
Once again thank you for a very productive and enjoyable workshop on Dartmoor.
Kind regards Fran
-
Hello Adrian,
Thank you so much for the very enlightening and enjoyable tutorial day yesterday. Your idea of changing location was very wise, and did't we do well with the weather.... look at it today!!
Many thanks, Nagui.
-
Hello Adrian,
Thank you so much for a great afternoon!
You turned my camera from being a mystery to something I can work with!!
Thank you again, best wishes,Sarah
-
Dear Adrian,
I would like to thank you for a very instructive day, yesterday. Following on from your course last year it put the ‘icing on the cake’ and help[ed me to put into practice many of the points you had taught us last year. I now feel far more confident and shall certainly be putting the techniques into practice. I also enjoyed the day out viewing the wonderful scenery! If you decide to hold an instruction day for using Photoshop I would certainly be very interested as I am still struggling with it.
Kind regards and thanks Ron H.
-
Hi Adrian
Thanks for a great and very informative session and the many tips you handed out

Thanks Adrian
And thank you for an excellent day on Saturday. I got to Irishman's Wall on Sunday
Best wishes and catch up soon. Ian
-
Hi Adrian,
I just wanted to say another thank you from all of us for the workshop on Saturday. We had a great time seeing new parts of Dartmoor and for the really helpful tips and suggestions you made. We all came away with something new we'd learnt so a big thanks for that.
Teresa
-
Hi Adrian
Many thanks for an excellent day yesterday. As I said, it was a completely new approach to photography for me. I am sold on RAW, at least for this sort of work. I was amazed at the detail I could recover from some of my files, especially the ones taken later in the day. Thanks again for all your help and encouragement.
Best wishes, Mike
-
Dear Adrian
Can't thank you enough for yesterday's workshop - absolutely cracking day - thank you so much for encouragement - was sat in kitchen at 3:00 am this morning writing down your valuable guidance lest I forget !!
Looking forward to next session. Andrea
-
Hi Adrian,
Thanks for a super day, your explanations of camera setups and knowledge of locations were superb. All it needs now is for me to practice what you have shown me. Regards to your wife and thank her for the cups of tea, most welcome.
Regards Sylvia
-
Hi Adrian,
Just to say thanks for a lovely day yesterday. I’m so glad we changed the date and it was definitely worth the early start! I think you must have organised those clouds too. I’m actually smiling at the rain today. I’ve ordered the software, tripod and polariser. You have definitely converted me to RAW and I’ve got loads of things to go out and practise now. Thanks so much. Hopefully I’ll come on a Dartmoor day sometime.
Best wishes Ali
-
Dear Adrian
I'm sorry not to have been in touch before to say how useful our morning's session was. The software was waiting when we got home, so I'll soon be practicing with that.
Thank you very much for spending so much time showing me how to improve my camera and computer skills. Could you let me have the details of the tripod and the filter you mentioned, as well as the extra lens you thought would be useful.Best wishes Margaret
-
Hi Adrian,
I'd like to express a massive thanks for the photography session on Friday, although I nearly lost my fingers in the cold, I had an amazing time and learnt a hell of a lot, especially to be patient!
Attached are a number of photos. They might not be up to your standards, but I'm chuffed with my start into the world of landscape photography. Thanks again, Ian
-
Hi Adrian
Firstly, many thanks for a brilliant workshop yesterday. I very much enjoyed it and learnt so much from you. I have been tinkering with some of the RAW files in LR today to good effect.
I have already ordered PS Elements 13 from Amazon and can't wait to get started with it; I'm in the process of ordering the step rings and ND. Thanks for the links, most useful.
No doubt there will be more I need to know soon so will be in touch!
Best regards Paul
-
Hi Adrian
Thank you for a great day yesterday. I really enjoyed it and I gleaned so much information from you.
Hopefully see you soon. Best Regards Derek V
-
Hi Adrian,
Just wanted to say thanks again for Sunday, Mum and Elana are really pleased with the photos they took and how much you taught them.
Thanks again.Siaran
-
Hi Adrian
Many thanks for such an enjoyable and productive day last Thursday;from an unpromising forecast we certainly got almost perfect photographic conditions. I have had a couple of shots printed and they certainly show off the Autumn colours. I hope you had a good day on Friday,I didn't make the Zombies in the end - a bit tired by the end of the day!
best wishes Anne
-
Hi Adrian
Thank you so much for a brilliant workshop yesterday, I so enjoyed it and learnt a lot too. To deal with three generations of women at fairly different stages in their photography was a big ask but you did brilliantly and we all came away enthused and more confident with landscape photography so a huge thank you once again. Val
-
Dear Adrian
Thanks for a very enjoyable and inspiring day out yesterday. Many thanks Barbara
-
Adrian
Thanks for a great day, full of helpful tips and great places to photograph. Mike
-
Hi Adrian.
The Course was very helpful to me, as was yesterday. Really enjoyed the day, practical application always drives things home much better for me. Hopefully we'll be as lucky with Weather when we do the Coast ! I'm looking forward to reinforcing things then, and learning more. Kind regards, Emm
-
Hi Adrian
I thoroughly enjoyed the full day on the Dorset coast. Adrian was so helpful, patient, very knowledgable and extremely informative. No time was wasted travelling (thanks for driving) as Adrian got to know our skill levels en route and chatted about photography's lol the way to our fabulous scenic destinations. A thoroughly worthwhile day and lots of ideas to go away and try. My Christmas list is sorted for accessories too!
Thanks again
Best wishes Celia
-
Hi Adrian
What an amazing day! l am thrilled to start a new learning curve! Thankyou.
Best wishes Mary
-
Hi Adrian,
Thanks once again for a fabulous day. I learnt so much and am definitely inspired now to go out and about with my camera again thanks to all the great ideas you shared. I've seen some of the techniques in magazines etc previously but struggled to follow them, in contrast you really brought it all to life and explained it so well that I feel much more confident that I can improve my images.
And also thank you for all the links you sent through, the Christmas list is well populated now (although the polarizer filter definitely isn't waiting that long!). Also added to my list is the hope I might be able to book on one of your Dartmoor workshops next year, hopefully I’ll be in touch!
Thanks again,
Lavinia
-
Hi Adrian,
Thanks for a very good ,full day out with enough information to take in to apply to my photography.
Great locations and a very pleasant and relaxing day.

Dear Adrian
Just wanted to say thank you for my and Tony's day across Dartmoor; great, loved it, and the scenery awe inspiring.
Kind Regards Janice McHardy
-
Hi Adrian,
Just wanted to say thanks again for the great day on Sunday, you made me feel really at ease and most importantly I really learnt how important it is to use a tripod and a polarising lens to get great photos!
Thanks again and look forward to the Autumn
Siaran
-
Dear Adrian,
Thank you so much for Friday. I had a great time and feel so much more confident and enthusiastic about my camera!! I have been playing around with both the camera and Photoshop. What a difference it makes feeling a little be more confident about what I am doing. I wish I had done your course when I first got the camera. Thanks again and hopefully see you in September.
Marie
-
Hi Adrian,
Firstly, many thanks for a great workshop day on Saturday. It was a really useful day and very helpful to have someone who knew where to go to get the best out of the weather and times of day. I'm really glad we decided to go ahead as we were treated to those superb skies after the storm. Look forward to meeting up when I get back from hols for some photoshop sessions. I'll drop you a line when I get back. Thanks again!
All the best Trevor.
-
Hi Adrian,
Just felt I needed to say thank you again for the day out in North Devon last week. I found it very helpful to revisit what was covered by the course I attended and Paul has discovered a lot about how to use his camera. I've only managed to look at a couple of your videos, they are very helpful and will get to the rest as and when I cover a particular area. Having Elements 12 makes it so much more useful in terms of following the videos you've provided on the CD. The CD is certainly an excellent learning tool to support the workshop day. I’ll have to start saving up as I would quite enjoy a workshop out on Dartmoor, maybe next year.
Many thanks for an enjoyable day, particularly as it was a long day and you had to do all the driving. Keith
-
Hi Adrian
I just wanted to thank you for a very informative day on Monday. I had such a good day and learned far more than I anticipated.
I will definitely book a one on one session with you and your suggestion of a day on Autumn makes so much sense. Just let me have a few dates and I will confirm.
Thank you again for a very interesting day. Best Regards Derek
-
Adrian
Thanks once again for an absolutely delightful day yesterday! I saw a
larger sample of Dartmoor's sights than I ever expected to be able to
manage in a single day, especially given the limitations of my bad knee.
On top of that, I took away several new skills that I'm diligently
practicing. Karen. (visiting from San Diego)
-
Hello Adrian.
Thanks for a great day out and to giving me a bit of a clue on the photo shop elements, the disk came in useful. May be the Wistmans wood photo has a bit to much colour in it but what the heck. With the photo of you I managed to remove one of the other people on the course. Hopefully I will have another day out with you on the coast in the autumn, towards Start Point maybe? Reg L

Hello Adrian
"I thought the pictures that I have taken in the past where good, but after the workshop my pictures are so detailed and balanced now as Adrian taught me so much" Simon H
-
"Adrian, many thanks for yet another excellent workshop on Dartmoor. Someone recently asked me why I kept going on your workshops (4 so far!) and I told them that I enjoyed being with you because you inspire me, you have endless patience when helping others, you are generous in your way of operating and providing advice and guidance, you know the areas we visit like the back of your hand and through attending your workshops my photography has greatly improved. On top of that you are easy to get on with so my days out with you are always very enjoyable, regardless of the weather! Best wishes, Tony”

Adrian
I am so glad that I gave my god daughter (Caroline) a voucher for her birthday for a half day with you. She took a long time to use it, but she had a great day and really enjoyed herself. Thank you. Alison
-
Adrian
Great day. many thanks. fantastic locations and weather !!. I have ordered the software and filter.
Many thanks David

Hi Adrian
Thanks again for a great workshop, I'm still amazed by how much I learned in one day and the videos and PowerPoint are great reference tools. Catriona
-
Hi Adrian
Many thanks from all of us for last Thursday, it was a brilliant day which we all thoroughly enjoyed, well done.
I've bought the Sigma 10-20 mm lens from Wex and received it on Monday. I had elements 10 so I've just upgraded to 12 and I like the layout of the newer version, not so cluttered with tools.
Once again, many thanks - we were talking about possibly doing one of your coastal workshops in the future so will be in touch when we decide to do this.
Best regards. Steph
-
Hi Adrian
Thank you for a great workshop on Saturday, its given me a lot of ideas and new things to try and I don't feel I have got to rush out and buy a new expensive camera to get the result I want. I have already been putting the new techniques to good use when I took the wife and kids to Combe Martin beach for Mothers Day. Craig
-
Hello Adrian
Thank you again for your great tuition and patience on Saturday. I was really pleased with the disc you gave me with all the information to help me remember! I have been on other photo days but none have ever given me information to refer back to. A great help. Regards Paul
-
Hi Adrian
Thanks for an awesome day. I really enjoyed it and got a lot from it. I am just about to order Adobe Elements. Dave J
-
Hi Adrian,
Thanks for a very good day’s shooting; We covered a fair bit of ground but it was well worth it to see the moor and get some nice shots. I thought you might be interested to see the panorama I did at the end on High Staple Tor. It’s made up of seven portrait shots with quite a lot of overlap. Don’t you think the group of rocks in the middle has a sinister presence in the picture or is it more benevolent like a sentinel? I think it looks foreboding. Anyway I am inspired to come back to Dartmoor and have another go soon, perhaps in November when there might be fog on the moor. Owen
-
Hi Adrian
Thank you so much for yesterday. The weather was devine and you taught me so much. I have found myself full of the photography bug again! I desperately want to show everyone what I did yesterday!! I really found you very patient and full of good advice. I am looking forward to using the disc that you also gave me. I have to say it was a very good idea of yours to give this to all your workshop attendees. Your knowledge of the places on Dartmoor that look great was impressive. I am sure that I will use all the new techniques you taught me yesterday all the time. You opened my eyes to what Photoshop can do, and I will now concentrate on also learning all the tricks of that program. I made you a promise yesterday, and I will certainly keep to it!! The Auto setting on my camera is now defunct!!
I would certainly recommend your service to anyone who wants to improve their photographic techniques. I had a great day!!! Best wishes Pam
-
Adrian,
Many thanks once again for an excellent day on Monday, I really enjoyed it and learnt an awful lot about cameras and photography.
I'm looking forward to getting back to elements on my computer at home to practice some of the techniques and see whether I managed to take a decent picture during the day. I have been out several times since trying to find some lovely spots - I enjoyed Buddleigh Salterton.
I'm in the West country quite a lot so I look forward to the next time I can arrange some time with you to learn the next stages of technique. Thanks again. Jonathan
-
Hi Adrian, Thanks very much for the workshop on
Saturday. It was a real education watching how you 'work' a location,
finding the best images. Your advice was really valuable, especially
regarding merging layers and panoramic photography. Chris P
-
Dear Adrian
Thank you for a wonderful photography course. I have learnt a lot from it.
I am attaching my first trial of bracketing. I took a few bracket photos on the way home. Once again, thank you.
Best wishes. Karen L.
-
Hello Adrian.
Again wanted to say thank you for the workshop on Sunday 21st July. I certainly learnt some additional aspects of photography and some other controls on the camera.
The process documents you put onto my memory card came out fine. And I have finally had a chance to look at my photos and managed to stitch a few together, and must say very impressed with the results. Still yet to go through the merging of the 3 shots taken from bracketing and the other processes you showed us.
One of the best workshops I've been on so thank you. Possible NY on the cards in a couple of years time. Kind Regards. Jo P
-
Hi Adrian
Your workshop was really informative and fun. In particular, the post-processing advice and guidance on panaramics was great and will certainly improve our pictures. We were very pleased with our waterfall photos. Thanks for a fantastic day and for driving us to some beautiful locations. Corinna and Richard
-
Hi Adrian
Just a quick e/mail to say a huge thank you again for a really enjoyable and informative photography workshop on Dartmoor today we both really enjoyed it and learnt so much.
I am really looking forward to playing about some more. I do have Adobe Photoshop 7 on my laptop which is great :-)
Thank you so much again.
Helen
-
Thanks for a fab day on Wednesday. Will look forward to the PDF. It was a really good day that we both enjoyed. We have some good photographs thanks to you. Will now use a tripod more and not use automatic. Thanks once again. Would recommend a day with you to anyone who needs to learn about photography. I may see if I can come down for a couple of hours so you can show me some tricks with my computer. Maggie
-
Hi Adrian,
Thank you for the PDF's, I have only had a very quick scan through whilst at work this afternoon, but they look brilliant. Thanks again for Saturday, it really was a good day, Dartmoor is truly a wonderful location and I will definitely be re-visiting in the near future. Having now had a chance to review the shots from the day, I have got some really nice images to work with. I feel I came away having really learnt more, not just about how my DSLR camera works but also some real pointers on techniques as well and I will be out again as soon as possible to try them out. I have already ordered a copy of elements 11 and can't wait to have a play with it. Regards Michael
-
Hi Adrian,
First and foremost I just wanted to say a huge thank you for your workshop on Saturday 25th May. Mike, Trev and I enjoyed it immensely and learnt so much that we were like excited kids chattering away on the journey home. Not only did we get to visit some gorgeous parts of Dartmoor but we also got to improve our photography skills along the way. I couldn't rate your workshop high enough and so once again, thank you. Teresa
-
Hi Adrian,
Thanks very much for Saturday, really enjoyed the whole day. Who would have thought there was so much content with just a few trees, a gentle slope and a truly wonderful sky, learnt so much about composition and light. The Photoshop session at lunchtime was really good, lots learnt and put into practice on Sunday after that wonderful end to the day on Kilve beach. The waterfalls near Watersmeet were spectacular, got some really good shots and again learnt a lot, this time about shutter speed and the use of ND filters. Once again, thank you for a really great day. Graham
-
Hi Adrian
Many thanks for a lovely workshop last Thursday. We really learnt a lot especially about filters and low light. Brian enjoyed it a lot too as he has e-mailed us saying how much he had enjoyed the day and the tuition. Regards Hans and Mary
-
Hello Adrian
Thank you for a really great South Devon Coast Workshop Day on Saturday. It was an amazing day, the locations you took us too were both beautiful. Your willingness to help, encourage and give photographic advice is so appreciated and I learnt so much. I am really happy with the many photos I took during the day and will now process according to the great PDF you have also taken time to make, to help further the learning experience.
Will chat with the 'photo group' and we will hopefully be signing up for another workshop later in the year. Best wishes, Yvonne
-
Hi Adrian
Firstly, thank you SO much for a fabulous day on Friday. I really enjoyed myself and have learnt so much about my camera and landscape photography that I didn't think possible in such a short space of time. When it's convenient would you be able to give me the names of the places we went to as I'd like to go back to practice some more and my Dad keeps asking me where we went (he even got the road atlas out yesterday!!!). Anyway thank you again for a fantastic day. Sheridan
-
Hi Adrian,
Thank you very much for a superb day, I felt it was a great way to bring together my own learning and also all the techniques you covered in the 6 week course I did at Otterton Mill.
Your knowledge of Dartmoor, Passion and Dedication for photography added a very special ingredient to the whole day. I am working through the shots I took on the day and keep thinking I must have picked up the wrong memory cards (I am still gob smacked);) There are a lot of keepers there for sure. Brett and David were a pleasure to be with and I think we will be keeping in contact as well, please keep me on your mailing list as I will be definitely up for further workshops.
Best regards. David M
-
Hi Adrian,
A belated thanks for the great workshop on July 21st, Belinda, Rose, Jo and I all had a great time and learnt so much. John T
-
Hi Adrian
Thank you for a wonderful full day on the moor yesterday. I went as a complete beginner on "Auto" and left understanding my camera, the techniques, composition and post processing. I have photos that I just can't wait to have printed and get onto my walls. Not only is your knowledge of photography outstanding but also your knowledge of Dartmoor and the great locations it holds. I would recommend this day to anyone who wants to learn the secrets of taking great landscapes photographs. Truly inspiring.
Many thanks Brett J
-
Dear Adrian
Thank you for an amazing time on Saturday. I set out wondering how much I would manage to learn and ended up amazed at how many significant things I had learnt. Thank you for the steady way you taught us so much. The first hour or so at Mamhead really opened my eyes to getting amazing photographs in really low light and the session at lunchtime on Photoshop was worth the day's fee all by itself. Mike
-
"Hi Adrian
I'm sure Mike and Gerry will agree that it was a hugely productive and enjoyable day ... and excellent value for money - especially with all these resources added in.
Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed yesterday. Before the workshop, I was feeling as if my photography had reached a bit of a plateau.
Yesterday was just fantastic ... really inspiring ... I am still on a high and buzzing!!
It was exactly what I needed to get me excited again about my photography and opened my eyes to lots of new possibilities.
Really enjoyed working with you ... and hope that we will be able to keep in touch" Pete S
-
"Hi Adrian
Thank you so much for another really good workshop. I'm doing a lot of editing and wish I'd heeded your advice to only take a few - but good
ones. It's good practice though. Thank you for your advice on the printing which has helped. The web
site address you gave me also had some excellent advice on printer profiles etc." Jill
-
"Hi Adrian, Thanks for a Great day Yesterday it seemed that The weather was smiling on us" Phil
-
"We had a fantastic day -we're both very inspired-so thanks very much again" Sarah and Richard
-
"Hello Adrian
Thank you very much for a brilliant day yesterday. I enjoyed it enormously and learned such a lot. And wasn’t the weather amazing. I shall definitely want to go on another of your workshops. I know I said Dartmoor, because I like Dartmoor so much, but I think the coast one will be just as good and will push me out of my comfort zone.
Will you please put me on your waiting list for the coastal one, as well as the Snow Alert?
Thanks too for the PDFs. I’ve had a very quick dip and they look extremely helpful. I shall look forward to looking at them properly." Linda
-
"Hi Adrian
Just like to say many thanks for a really enjoyable day on Saturday, I learnt a lot from you, particularly the use of the tripod, and found it very simulating working in a group of like minded people.
Saving hard now for a decent tripod and the Sigma wide angle lens." Regards Graham
-
"Dear Adrian,
Thanks for a brilliant workshop on Dartmoor last week. Aperture is very good except for two things. No layering facility and no stitching for panoramas. I'll go for photoshop soon." Best wishes, Chris
-
"Adrian
Thanks for a great day out on Thursday. Weather, company and food were good. I learned so much on the day from you and will be back for more and will be booking to go out with you again next year." Michael B
-
"Thanks for the workshop on Friday. I really enjoyed it and learnt a huge amount. Fingers crossed that this will translate into better pictures" Charlotte
-
"I had a great morning with Adrian on Dartmoor. As someone who only had past experience with film photography and compact snapshots, I realise now that I could have continued to waste time missing great landscape shots due to poor technique. Not only did he explain the fundamentals of camera work, but gave me invaluable advise on equipment and optimising the results with software. I was so enthused I was back on Dartmoor the same day to attempt to catch the evening sunset… " Jerry
-
"I learned more from one day with Adrian, than from all the books and magazines I have read in 12 months. He is patient, easy to understand, and an inspirational teacher! Thanks for a memorable day" Roger M
-
"Thanks so much for all the info and thank you once again for such a marvellous insight into Dartmoor.I enjoyed yesterday so much and have been up since 6am this morning going through the photos." Ken J.
-
"I enjoyed the workshop immensely and I learnt a lot (and/or was reminded of a lot). Please let me know dates for the Dartmoor workshops as I almost certainly want to come again" Jill V
-
"Hi Adrian,
Just a quick Email to say thank you very much for Wednesday. It was a great day out on the moor, and I have come away with an improved knowledge of landscape photography and photoshop. Also a big thank you for the PDF files, they will no doubt come in very useful." Richard.
-
"Hi Adrian,
I would very much like to thank you for our Exmoor and North Devon workshop last Friday. I feel that I learned a great deal and have also discovered some lovely new landscape photography locations.
Please continue to include me on your email list as I would definitely like to attend more of your workshops in the future." Helen
-
"Hi Adrian
I thoroughly enjoyed the ‘half’ day on Saturday and as always learned a lot, thank you for making it so enjoyable. Sue definitely enjoyed her Birthday present. If you get a chance to send me a copy of the picture which you took of us both on the shoot that would be great as a momento. I am constantly watching your web page and can appreciate and understand more, thanks to all your guidance over the times I have been out with you, there is always something to learn. I will get in touch when I have the cleaning kit and arrange to get my sensor cleaned. Thanks.
Best wishes and happy shooting!" Teresa
-
"Hi Adrian
Just to say huge thanks for a great workshop last Friday. Your Photoshop session has opened up a new dimension as to what I thought was possible. I can also now make sense of Scott Kelby's book on Elements and have made a start with the material from Friday. First impressions are the results look very promising and the sea thrift images that you set up for me look stunning. I've just taken the first steps with my website and have signed up with clickpic. I'll try to get to grips with the basics but before I get stuck (and I will). I'll contact you for your expertise, say a half day workshop on this and Elements?

"Thanks for a really good day. I thoroughly enjoyed myself, especially the rough seas and the tuition of how to get “soft” water (not forgetting the odd shoulder to lean on!)" June

"Very many thanks for a great day out yesterday.
It was good to discover hitherto unknown photographic venues and to learn some new techniques. You are a patient teacher, as well as being good company" Stuart B

"I had a fantastic time and learnt so much. I was a complete novice and now I am more confident with my camera, the settings and have learnt (with excellent guidance) how to take advantage of locations and weather patterns in a way that I had no idea I could
The most important thing though, is that Adrian researched the weather and put the quality before the time slot, and changed the time to get the best pictures-very much appreciated. I would really recommend it to anyone at any level as I saw the progression of the novice and the more advanced, to much less novice and even more advanced.
Thank you again for all your patience and support - I am so so so proud of my pictures with all credit to your expert guidance" Noo

"Thanks for the workshop on Saturday. We had a particularly good day. Great planning and watching the weather, it made the day for me. Good choice of locations and flexibility to the conditions.
I noticed that the help/training is really not in a ‘do it like this’ manner, I observed that you give most information in a ‘relevant’ chat kind of way. Its really low key – you don’t realise how much you are learning. I particularly liked the locations especially Westcombe Beach – it was stunning.
Coming away with some ‘keepers’ is a real buzz, I think we bored Jacqui senseless when we got home. It is a real inspiration to know you can do it!
I don’t want to speak for Noo, but…..there was a girl with a brand new camera and not much experience and she took pictures that looked like a pro. We have an addict!
Thanks again, really enjoyable, inspirational and fun….we will have to do it all again." Cheers Tim

"It was a very enjoyable and informative day visiting some stunning locations. I thought I had a good idea about composition but I learnt additional tips and hints especially on sight lines and reflections. The introduction to filters was eye opening and after Adrian's coaching I'm more confident in moving away from the 'Green Box' setting." Steve H

"Really pleased with the day. The easy pace for a beginner like me was just right. Learnt a lot." MC

"Hi Adrian, thanks for a fantastic day out on Wednesday. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole day and picked up a lot of useful tips from you, in particular compositional techniques. You suggested that when my wife saw the days photos her jaw would drop, well that was a massive understatement. She is convinced that you gave me your memory card to bring home." Ian

"Just a note to say thanks for a fantastic day last Sunday. We really enjoyed it. Hopefully we will have some good images for next years competitions. Hope you have recovered!" Best wishes Hans and Mary

"Hello Adrian
Just to say I really enjoyed Sunday and once again gained so much from the day. Hopefully I will be able to do some more in the future!"

"I felt blessed to have spent a whole day on Dartmoor with Adrian. His technical knowledge plus boundless enthusiasm for the art of photography were inspirational. I returned with a new found understanding for the working of my camera, how best to utilise sunlight in photo's plus the complimentary power of computer software. His advice on gearing up for a lifelong enjoyment of photography is tried and tested and extremely helpful. Thank you Adrian for an illuminating and fulfilling day." Best regards Mike S

"Thank you for an excellent day on Saturday. Not only did you impart a great deal of instruction and information, you did it in a very relaxed and informal way. I wasn't bombarded with jargon and unnecessary technicalities - we just got down to the nitty gritty of taking a good photograph. The day was very informative, hugely enjoyable and I learnt a great deal." Mark

"Thanks for an excellent day yesterday. The weather was very kind to us and your timing of the tide at the various locations was impeccable! The Photoshop session was very interesting and I am determined to master it!" Michael B
