I practised all that I learned on the way home. Motorways are not the most exciting subjects I know, but Sally would have been proud as none of the shots were over exposed or grainy, unlike all the other photos in our family albums !

I have been out twice with Sally. She taught me how to use manual rather than Auto that I was stuck on ! She is a very good teacher and full of good advice. Looking forward to more photo shoots and more advice
— Suzanne, Newcastle upon Tyne
First time shooting manually at Houghall Woods, Durham. Thank you Sally
— Carole, Billingham
I attended the ‘Industrial Decay’ photo shoot in May and had an excellent day of photography. Sally has a fantastic knowledge of photographic techniques, composition and technical know-how and everyone in the group learned a great deal. I started using Sally’s suggestions and have seen an immediate improvement in my photographs. While it was a guided walk, we were free to explore and use our individual creativity. It was a really enjoyable day and I would highly recommend attending one of the events.

Thank you for yesterday, I thoroughly enjoyed it

Our son was given a camera for his 13th birthday and it stayed in the cupboard for three years. Having booked a holiday to Montenegro we decided to unearth it. We struggled to make sense of the manual and booked a beginners course. I can’t tell you how much I learnt ! Thanks !
— Kate, Darlington
To be honest, the time just flew by and 5pm came far too soon. I enjoyed it so much I have rebooked Sally for a one to one session to build on my existing knowledge.
— Paul, Yorkshire
An excellent night. I was challenged but felt I learnt some valuable tips and enjoyed discussing the images with Sally afterwards
— Stan, Newcastle
Sally explained things very clearly and her feedback was constructive and supportive. I learnt a lot, thank you
— Wendy, Haltwhistle
I’ve had a nice camera for ages and was really cross I didn’t know how to use it, so it stayed in the cupboard until my husband bought me a voucher. I can’t tell you how much I learned, Sally is brilliant at explaining it and now I get it
— Jess, Stockton on Tees
