Course Feedback:


“I just wanted to say thanks so much for such a great course on Saturday. I really got loads out of it. From knowing very little when I arrived to leave excited, informed and just ready to enjoy and have “confidence with my camera” as you promised at the start of the course.”   Jill White, Ewelme, Oxfordshire


“Fantastic course today. I thoroughly enjoyed it. You’re a very natural trainer helping put people at ease.    Like I mentioned I did a course about 18 months ago, but (to Dad’s amusement) ended up on Auto again!  Not this time, I feel much more comfortable with the settings you showed us, they make much more sense this time – so thank you 🙂  What other courses do you teach?”  Lindsey, Oxfordshire


“Thank you so much for yesterday, I thoroughly enjoyed the course.    I looked at my manual and managed to move my red spot easily.  I have already taken pics of the kids and am really pleased with them.  I’m really looking forward to getting started with control of my camera!  Thank you so much, you were very inspiring and motivating”!  Mandy Smith, Oxfordshire


“I so enjoyed the photo course last Saturday afternoon and learnt a lot.  I must say I was very sceptical when you said “After today you will not be using your cameras on automatic ever again”.  Do you know what?    Jackie, I will never again use my camera on automatic again.  I just know I won’t”.   Sarah Reeves, Oxfordshire


“I just wanted to send an email to say a great big thank you from both Kieran and myself for the course on Saturday.  We both really enjoyed it, felt totally relaxed there and got loads of useful hints and tips out of it.  We feel so much more confident in getting out there and making the best use of our cameras.”   Beverley McDonough, Bicester


“Would just like to say thank you for a brilliant course, I have took a lot away with me to improve. I would be very interested in learning more.  Thank you”.
Ryan Healing, Carterton


“Thanks for a great lesson on Saturday I learnt some sound basic knowledge which is already making a difference to my photography, which is making me want to go out and take even more pictures and get as much experience as possible!”   Scott Williams, Bulford


“Just wanted to say a Big Thank you for the course yesterday. I took some shots of the family as soon as I got home and already felt much more confident setting up the camera and results were so much better than I have managed before.  Great tip was using black & white in low light. Our living room is dark anyway and more so once the sun has set. Upping the ISO gave me some great pictures without the need for a flash.  Once again, thank you so much. I will be keeping my eyes out for more courses with you, especially the Wedding Photography one”.      Mike Ling, Oxfordshire


“Thank you for a very enjoyable afternoon last Saturday (People and portraits beginners’ course).  Like most other people there I have a fairly decent camera but have rarely taken it off the “auto” setting and although I have achieved some reasonable results this has been more by luck than judgement.  I now have a greater understanding of what the other settings on the camera do and how I can use them to get better
results.  As, if not more, importantly I now have an understanding of how light, background, angles etc. can help or hinder me in my quest to take better photographs of people”.     Jon Smith, Oxfordshire


“I attended one of Jackie’s photographic courses.  Introduction To DSLR Photography.   The course was well planned, with a variety of different subjects to photograph. The subjects were chosen in order to emphasise the various functions of the camera and to get you using them!   Jackie guides you in a very logical, step by step way, using plain English; so that you leave feeling confident that you too can take great photographs and know how to store and edit them for easy retrieval.  No more wandering about with the camera permanently set to auto for me!”     Fraser Hamilton,  Oxfordshire
