Spent a wonderful few days immersed in photographing the countryside. Have learnt so much and can’t believe the bird shots that I’ve taken were actually mine!!. John is a very patient tutor and we’ve had a lot of fun. So many birds to see and he knows where to find them. Can’t wait to go on another of his courses

Great photography again ! Redstarts in flight plus pied & spotted flycatchers and grey wagtail in garden – amazing ! Thank you John for your guidance.

SALLY  S  Farnham


A wonderful two days with John in his delightful cottage and location. And, a three inch fall of snow overnight, was a great bonus on day two. I learnt an enormous amount bird photography with a usful diversion to landscape as well. I also got some fabulous pictures, including an accommodating sparrow hawk. Lastly, great company and hospitality.

A delightful stay in  a beautiful site with plenty of good birds to practice photographing. A very comfortable house with the great hospitality of John.

He taught me an enormous amount about how to use my cameras and lenses to the best effect and get some stunning shots. I feel i have made another good friend in getting to know John.

We’ve had a brilliant time learning about photographing birds. John is an excellent teacher with a brilliant sense of humour...Spent most of the time laughing. Wonderful countryside and masses of great birds what a lovely spot the cottage is in, and photographing the amazing birds in the garden is a treat.

Fabulous time with a very patient teacher ! Loan of camera much appreciated.
