David is a very good teacher - amazing
I took the beginner’s photography class and it was amazing. Very informative, but friendly for someone who is just learning how to use a DSLR camera. David is a very good teacher and he will make sure to give you all the knowledge and tips to start taking your own amazing pics. I really enjoyed my class and I hope to take more in the near future.

From ‘auto’ to manual 100% of the time
Had a great day, David was patient, enthusiastic and focused on what I needed. I went from shooting on auto to now being in manual 100% of the time. Great teacher and lovely person, can't recommend enough.

Truly the best photography teacher ever
David is a patient, inspirational, passionate photographer. It is so obvious that he wants his students to get the best from his teaching! Truly the best photography teacher ever who doesn’t ‘rant on and on’ about his own (fabulous) work but provides a bespoke service to each and every student. I can’t recommend him more highly!

Lots of incredibly helpful tips on how to take great photos
I had never held a DSLR in my hand. Honest! Definitely, a DSLR Novice here. But not anymore! He gave me lots of incredibly helpful tips on how to take great photos. There was very clear advice on composition, the exposure triangle, camera modes, metering and more. David’s handouts are incredibly easy to understand, they were absolutely perfect for me. He offers follow-up support too via email or over a cup of coffee.

Passion and enthusiasm for his work was infectious!
David’s passion and enthusiasm for his work was infectious! I’ve certainly learned so much more than I thought about my camera and photo composition. Can’t wait to sharpen my new found skills. Thanks David

A wealth of information about photography
David is a wealth of information about photography, the city and its historical roots. I gained great comfort with my camera as well as capturing some lovely pictures of this city.

The pictures I shot with David improved a lot
David is such a passionate photographer, you really feel he loves his work. With less effort (e.g. only changing the angle a little) the pictures I shot with David improved a lot compared to those I have taken.

I learned the fundamentals of using my camera
David is an incredibly interesting and passionate gentleman who clearly loves Edinburgh and Photography. I learned the fundamentals of using my camera and enjoyed a lovely afternoon discussing the philosophy of life, interspersed with detailed chats about photography.

The photos I took are amazing
I was fortunate enough to get David to show me round Dundee. I have an interest in architecture and I was blown away by his knowledge of the city. I only had my iPhone with me and the photos I took are amazing thanks to David teaching skills. Highly recommend his services.
