Kind Words

I recently had 2 one-one-sessions with Catherine to learn how to use my DSLR camera and get off the auto setting. Catherine has an obvious passion for photography which is reflected in her own photos but she is also very warm and patient as a teacher and this helped build my confidence in using the camera. She found some fun ways for me to practise taking those ‘blurred’ action shots which I’ve always wanted to learn about. Can’t recommend Catherine highly enough
