What past students have to say

“I highly recommend Kate for a photography training session, especially if you are anything like me and unaware of your cameras functions.

I was devastated when lockdown cancelled a pre-booked newborn photoshoot of my new arrival. I’ve had my DSLR camera for a 6 years but never learnt any of the functions, just using the camera pre-set features in the hope of getting good shots. I tried taking some newborn photos myself but wasn’t getting the results I wanted.  The session with Kate and her support and guidance following was brilliant. Her natural teaching style and knowledge of photography meant that I was able to learn quite a few new skills in photography and in using my own DSLR camera during our session. 

I will be forever grateful to Kate for the knowledge. I now have lovely newborn photos to cherish always and also the confidence and skills to take good quality photos of my family as we grow.”
