The course was so interesting and helpful. The location is stunning and Laura and Sue were so friendly and even baked gluten free biscuits and provided me with a wonderful home cooked gluten free lunch.

Dear S00edge, Thank you for your lovely review, as we make all our lunches and refreshments from scratch each day it is not a problem at all to cater for specific dietary requirements. We'd love to have you back again soon, perhaps 'Take Interesting Photos' next time? All best wishes, Laura

I booked this course for my daughter’s 15th birthday present. She has just returned from the most amazing day with Laura!!! She has enthused all the way home about how lovely Laura was and how much she’s learnt. She even brought home a framed print of an incredible photo she

Dear Pathfinder, Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a kind review. Your daughter was brilliant, just soaking up the knowledge, I think young people are primed to pick up new skills easily. We often have young people in the studio on our photography courses to count towards their skill section of their Duke of Edinburgh awards too. We'd love to have her back in the studio anytime, perhaps she'll try 'Take Interesting Photos' next and then on to 'Mastering Manual Mode'? All best wishes, Laura

Dear Sarah, Thank you for your kind review, we love to make sure guests feel looked after so it is brilliant to hear that you want to come back. Perhaps you'll try the 'Take Better Photos' day or the 'Mastering Manual Mode' course next? Hope to see you again soon. All best wishes, Laura

The one day course was excellent. I learnt a huge amount and had plenty of opportunity to practise, with the benefit of constructive, thoughtfu feedback on my efforts, The setting is beautiful and course participants are made to feel very welcome. I look forward to returning.

Dear Dean, Thank you for such a lovely review, we try to make the studio as welcoming as possible as we find that it creates a better learning environment.

I had a lovely time at Shore Cottage Studio with Laura, Sue and Kris. I attended two courses on separate days in May and June - Getting Off Auto Mode and Mastering Manual Photography. Laura presented the courses in a non-technical, easy to understand and jargon free way. She is

Dear 123DH, Thank you for your kind review, the 'Get Off Auto Mode' then 'Mastering Manual Mode' course combination is a good one to take you from zero to full proficiency in using your camera in just two stand alone day long sessions. You should be very proud of the progress you've made over the two days. We'd love to have you back in the studio later in the year, perhaps you'll try 'Take Interesting Photos' next? All best wishes, Laura
