I was treated to a training course with Paul as a Christmas gift. Paul was very good at explaining how to use my camera and the various settings to achieve different effects. I have a lots of lovely photos from the day and a much better understanding of photography and my camera. He is very knowledgeable. I highly recommend his courses.
