Photographic Day


Welcome to the student page

The majority of the photographs taken here were by students attending the beginner's day, most starting off with very little knowledge of photography - Well done everyone, I think they're brilliant pictures! Anthony Cullen

Quotes from students

Below I have listed some of the quotes students have given me after completion of the course.

"Many thanks for a very informative and extremely enjoyable day. I really felt that I learnt a great deal - particularly with regard to composition and manual settings. I will now be able to make more use of the functions on my camera - some of which I had no idea existed - and hopefully create some more interesting photographs. I was very pleased with my print - the black and white option was perfect".
Sandra Clarke

"I found the whole day a wonderful experience. I learnt a great deal. Anthony spent a lot of time explaining everything, making it all very easy to understand.  I have been photographing since I was 8, but never really fully understood about exposures etc, but I do now! Pin Mill is a truly wonderful place to visit, and the pub lunch was delicious. Can't wait to go back for the Intermediate Day".
Jayne Burton

"I thoroughly enjoyed the Beginners Photographic Day at the end of Sept, your introduction was both fascinating and inspiring, sharing you work and discussing the composition just reiterates the skill required to be a great photographer. Lunch was fantastic and a nice opportunity to chat to everyone else on the course, in the afternoon your explanation of working with Photoshop was clear and concise".
Rachel Warner

"I came on the beginners course in May 2008 having no real knowledge of how to use my DSLR which I received as a Christmas present. After attending the course I found that I had a much better understanding of depth of field and aperture. A lot more thought goes into my photographs now and I love nothing better than just going off with my camera and seeing what I can create. I had a fantastic day at Pin Mill and would definitely recommend that anyone who has a digital camera and is a bit nervous of it to attend one of your courses for some expert tuition. In fact, one of my friends already has!".
Katie Millar

"I thoroughly enjoyed my time with you, and despite my initial nervousness I had a fun and relaxed day.  Only yesterday I was looking at the image I had framed from the day and thought 'wow...I took that!".
Gael Pryce

"Really enjoyed the day and am dropping hints to my husband to see if another day can be my next birthday present!".
Julia McCully

"I just wanted to thank you for a fascinating course last Sunday. It was so helpful to be able to speak to an expert and I'll be able to put what I learned to good use. The personal touch is something that no book can ever give and that is the true value of courses such as yours". 
Rob Atherton

"Thank you for a most enjoyable day on Saturday. I thoroughly enjoyed the day and thought it was very informative & really interesting. I feel I have really benefited from the day and feel more confident with the camera & its functions / programmes. I also learnt a great deal on composition. I was very pleased with my print. I also really enjoyed the meal at ‘The Butt & Oyster’. I will contact you in the New Year with a view to booking the intermediate day".
Simon Horswill

"We both had a wonderful day and learnt so much. In fact yesterday we went up to Aldeburgh to see an exhibition about Orford Ness
(superb), then fish and chips (you cant be in Aldeburgh without them), and then had a foto session on the beach. We have both uploaded the results and cannot believe the improvement in our work. There is still a way to go but you have given us the confidence to play around with our cameras. Now all we have to do is to be brave with Photoshop!! Thanks so much for helping us".

Ann and Brian

"I just wanted to drop you a note to say thanks for a great day last Sunday. I found the day very informative, the pace was great, nothing was too much trouble and I really liked your style.
Thanks again, a great day.".

Andy Batchelor

"Just a short email to express my thanks for the course on Sunday 29th. The information and presentation were absolutely excellent and pitched at a level that I think everyone went away with a good insight of how to increase their skills. In particular, I thought the section dealing with Photoshop was invaluable both on a level of how to manipulate existing pictures, but also on how to take the shot to give the best possible starting point. Despite having to travel back to the midlands the same evening, I felt sufficiently enthused to work on some of the shots I took earlier as soon as I got back. You have given me back the enthusiasm to really try to work to improve my photography which I think I was beginning to loose.
Many, many thanks for a really great day.".
