Our teaching style is one of clarity and simplicity, how to be flexible and adaptable so that if you find yourself with only a compact and no tripod in Venice at 2am you can still achieve a stunning photograph. A quality compact set on a low ISO setting and firmly embedded in a beanbag using the self timer will take a brilliantly sharp image.
