A thoroughly enjoyable day’s photography whilst learning new techniques. Nigel is a very approachable tutor who pays close attention to the needs of every photographer on the course.

I attended Nigel’s course on low light photography and had a very enjoyable evening in Exmouth. Nigel started with an overview of getting off the auto setting by adjusting the aperture and shutter speed. He showed us how to photograph boats and architecture around The Point to create that WOW factor. As sunset approached we moved onto the beach and got our tripods and neutral density filters out to capture stunning images. We then walked back to the harbour area to take long exposure photos. I was very much a novice in using my camera and Nigel very patiently adjusted the settings for me to ensure I didn’t miss out on these opportunities. Many thanks Nigel!

I have always struggled with low light and dusk/night time photography on my mirrorless Sony A6000 camera. Nigel helpfully provided good insight into how to improve my techniques and learn more about the camera options. The course covered later afternoon, dusk and sunset photography (at scenic Exmouth) and then over to Budleigh for some fully dark night-time shots. It is a lot of trial and error but I feel much better informed. Though a later night than planned, it is a course I would thoroughly recommend.

Had a great day with Nigel. Came away from Lyme Regis with some renewed enthusiasm and good ideas to try out. Thoroughly recommended!

I thoroughly enjoyed the Bantham workshop in April. So good to benefit from Nigel’s local knowledge and tips on the day to help make our images tell more of a story. The pre-workshop briefing sheets were a helpful foundation, a great group of fellow photographers, and some gentle critique of our efforts from Nigel afterwards made the workshop well worthwhile. So, the real test, has it made me a better photographer? Well I can genuinely say I’m thinking more about what I’m seeing through the lens, and getting more pleasure from the results.
