I started the course with little confidence in my photography skills, however week by week the confidence in my ability has grown, nurtured by an excellent tutor. Not only has it given me a greater appreciation of photography, it has allowed me to explore and find my creative side. Its a great course and I'm looking forward to progressing onto the improvers course.
I came on to this course looking for something new to learn and found my whole outlook to life changing for the better. The course has been wonderful in its delivery, full of enthusiasm by a tutor who obviously is passionate about the field he works in. This was also demonstrated to us by his ongoing support for us in and out of the classroom every week. I feel that I have a healthier way of seeing and valuing my like after this course and for that I am grateful. Looking forward to next term
