Hi Andy, I don't think I've put my camera down all week. Your teaching method is fantastic and my brain seems full with all the information you crammed into it. I've even shared what you taught me with some of the students where I work. I've already got plans to practice lots and I hope you'll take me back and teach me more when I've got some better photos under my belt. Thank you, I learnt a lot and unlearnt many bad habits quicker than I imagined. Would you Recommend Us YES

I just want to say thank you for the fantastic photography lesson. I had plenty of time to practice and learned a lot from one day. By the end of the day I was much more confident using my camera off auto. Thanks again for an informative and enjoyable day. Jennifer Would you Recommend Us YES

Hi Andy, The one to one lesson is a great way to learn as you go along at a pace you are comfortable with and have plenty of time to practice. I certainly learned a great deal in one day and as a result get a lot more from my camera. Best wishes John Would you Recommend Us YES

Andrew, just wanted to say thanks for your days tuition. The basics you showed me in using my camera off 'Auto' gave me a great deal of confidence, and I've been playing with my new camera ever since. For those reading this, I enjoyed your very relaxed style of help, nothing too stuffy, and I cannot believe how quickly the day went. Great value as it's one to one. The ability to take clear pictures of flowers will help me massively at my nursery, and you're always welcome to bring people here! Many thanks, Ian Would you Recommend Us YES

Having purchased my first camera trying to find how it worked alone seemed to prove harder than I thought. After coming across Andy's website I decided to do a 1-2-1 day course with him to get accustomed to my camera.
Andy was a really nice guy, laid back with an excellent approach to teaching. Reminding you when you had forgotten things but allowing you to make your own mistakes to understand more. He explained perfectly how everything worked in terms of shutter speed, aperture etc and how that would change depending on your surroundings.
I now feel so much more comfortable using my camera and producing much better quality photos and what to look for in a photo to get nice shots. I can certainly say it was certainly a great investment for me as now I am happy to go out with my camera having a bit more knowledge of whether my shots are going to come out as I see them with my eye. I learnt that theres really no need to click shoot 1000x but more so wait for the right time and click it once.
Andy was a very knowledgeable guy and you can tell he has a vast amount of experience in this field. For anyone who has come across Andy's site and is thinking about taking the course I would 100% recommend it regardless of you level of expertise. Big thanks mate for helping me out, loving how I feel more comfortable with my camera.

I recently had a 1-2-1 day with Andy. It was a great day and so helpful! Andy is a great guy, friendly, and has a passion for teaching photography! You are given lots of information throughout the day, but its put across in a way that you actually take it all in! You get lots of practice during the day that by the end it all starts coming naturally! Thanks so much for your help mate and I'll definitely be booking back in for another session in the future!

Just spent a day with Andrew on his 1-2-1 course and had a great day. I was unsure in using Digital cameras but with Andrews knowledge by the end of the day I felt very confident due to his experience. the day went very quickly but well worth the cost. being i am nearly 70 didn't know how it would go but felt at ease from the moment we met. From the day I was able to to set up my second camera two days later and had a very good day taking great photographs. Many thanks Alan Would you Recommend Us YES

I treated myself to a one to one photography course with Andy on 14th March. We met at Brocks Hill Country Park on a chilly but bright day. Andy immediately put me at ease and asked me exactly what I wanted to get out of the day. He was extremely patient and explained how to get the best out of my camera in a very easy to understand way. There was a lot of information to take in but because we kept repeating the rules but in many different and interesting ways it all went in. It was an excellent day, one I would recommend in an instant to others, and I look forward to continuing to improvement. Thank you Andy !! Would you Recommend Us YES
Bruce 5 Star Rating *****
Did the 1-2-1 course and found it incredibly helpful and explained in a non jargon and simple way to understand. Andrew managed the content, the locations and overall structure of the day really well. The only thing he couldn't organise was the weather as it poured down! He has left me motivated to practise and learn more to get the most out of my camera which is even more than I expected from the day. I would highly recommend Andrew.

Booked a 1-2-1 course as I wanted to be able to take my dslr off auto mode. Had a great day and learned a lot, Andrew was very knowledgeable and gave me a good understanding of the technical terms. I left the session much more capable than I had begun and have been practicing skills daily since. Thank you Andrew

I had a thoroughly enjoyable day and enjoyed the course and tutorial given by Andy, I would recommend the tutorial to any camera enthusiast who wants to learn more about how the camera works in manual mode. I will be having more advanced tutorial from Andy in the very near future
Chris Oakley 5 Star Rating *****
I did the one to one photography course recently and found it not only really helpful but a fascinating insight into the world of photography. As I am just starting out it was a great platform for me to build on. Andy manages to ascertain how quickly you pick up new ideas and makes sure that you get the most out of the course whatever level you are starting out at. The best part of it all though was being able to use all of the information from this course to get some nice shots on holiday! Hopefully will just be able to keep practicing to get better. Thank you Andy
Gillian 5 Star Rating *****
Having bought myself a new camera that I was struggling to get to grips with, I googled photography courses and came across Davina-Andrew photography's one2one courses. I felt this would be the better option for me due to the way I learn. It was definitely the right decision!! The course was aimed at me and my camera. Andrew showed me how to get the best from my camera, going at my pace and allowing me to practise, make mistakes and learn from those mistakes. By the end of the day I had a much better understanding of how the camera works, although I have to admit my head was swimming a bit with all the information!! I went out the next day and practised what I had learnt and came back with some much better quality pictures, which friends on facebook also commented on. I now need to keep practising until it becomes second nature!! All in all it was a great day and I am very grateful to Andrew for sharing his skills at a level that was right for me - far better than sitting in a classroom!! Thank you!

I never wrote any review before, however I was so impressed with Andrew's 1-2-1 session today and I have to write it the first time.
I did not expect much initially from the first lesson, as I am an absolute beginner as I know nothing about using the DSLR. However at end of the day, I am filled with all the knowledges that is necessary to get me start. The day was flying so fast because Andrew's teaching was very engaging and he made the complicated things so easy to understand and I thoroughly enjoyed my lesson. I would recommend him to anyone I know for sure!!! Best money spent!

For my Beginners One to One Course with Andrew I spent the day at Abbey Park in Leicester. From the start he makes you feel very relaxed as he sits you down and explains how the day will work and the basic features of your camera and how to use them. Then he takes you off to show you how to use them all in practice. I had previously only ventured off of Manual mode to take a few exploratory long exposure shots, not really knowing what I was doing. Needless to say, most of these were rubbish and either blurry or overexposed. With his personal tuition, I now know what I was doing wrong and how to correct the issues. My photos as a whole have now improved considerably knowing which settings I should be using for certain conditions. Technical terms are explained in a simple fashion so you understand what they all mean and do. I would 100% recommend these courses for beginners and also for more experienced photographers who think they know what they are doing. I guarantee you win learn new things and improve noticably. The instruction is simple, clear, patient and clearly coming from an extremely knowledgable and passionate tutor. I will definitely be booking another course in the future when I am at a standard to learn more advanced techniques. Jon Berry (July 2017)

Fabulous day! Myself and my mother in law booked Andrew for a day course. Really doubtful how much I would learn as other classes and teachers hadn't been the best. Andrew was fantastic we had a good laugh, mostly at my mother in law ha ha!! He was patient and explained everything at our pace. Oh and we found our legs! Apparently you also need to move closer to objects when taking pictures‚ I speak for both of us when I say we had the best day and I've learnt so much, I'm off auto and excited about the prospect of putting my new skills into practice! Thanks Andrew.
Helen Cartwright 5 Star Rating*****
I was given a camera for a Christmas present, I really was not sure how to use it.I was able to turn it on, turn it to auto mode and take shots I was not happy with. Without knowing what anything meant, all the numbers, different settings too many buttons. After a day with Andy I know how to take an 'exposure' of something that will remian still, and something that is moving...but most importantly to me, taking three or four of the same thing with different settings to capture the best results. His teaching methods were outstanding.A fantastic day!
I now look at the numbers (taught) and know what they mean and how to use some of the functions of my camara. (Remembering to choose the shutter speed!) Thank you so much. I am going to book another course once I feel I have mastered this stage.
Sally Coles 5 Star Rating *****
Comment : Would thoroughly recommend Andrew`s course for beginners. I learned so much in just one day, and feel much more confident now to make use of the settings on my camera rather than relying on the auto ones. Andrew explained the processes in a way that novices like me could understand, and by repeating the exercises several times, I had the chance to practice things and consolidate the learning. He also helped me make trigger notes so that I feel confident to move on alone, and he highlighted the areas where I need to concentrate so that nothing gets forgotten. I feel really hopeful that my future photography efforts will show a great improvement!
