Photographic Day
"I would like to say just how much I enjoyed my session with you at your Pin Mill studios last week,
I found your relaxed yet hugely competent and informative approach to the complicated subject
of cameras, composition and photography in general created an ideal atmosphere for learning."

Alan Elliott (click to read more)

"Just wanted to say thank you very much for such an enjoyable and constructive day last Friday. I was
not quite sure what my daughters had signed me up for but the day exceeded all my expectations!
I really appreciated your patience and kindness, having always been shy to ask questions which I
thought would sound silly. I feel I have got to know my camera better. You have given me confidence
to be more adventurous and inspired me with your amazing work. I will highly recommend you."

Heather Havers (click to read more)

"Your relaxed and very practical approach made the day highly enjoyable. The difference a relatively
small amount of Photoshop made to the finished photographs was incredible but I also took away how
a little bit of pre thought and composition coupled with a practical camera set up made the initial
photograph that much better."

Martin Lack (click to read more)

"I gave my husband Tim a course with Anthony for Christmas. He learnt so much and they have kept in touch. It was therefore natural for me to ask him to take pictures for my forthcoming book. The designer, the publisher and the author are thrilled with the photos!"
