"I cannot praise Sally's personal tuition course highly enough - I learned a huge amount in my 5 sessions including: theoretical aspects of photography. I now feel that I have the confidence to develop photography as a serious hobby. If you have an interest in photography but feel daunted by the complexities of your camera and want to develop some theoretical knowledge, then I can highly recommend booking tuition with Sally"
