RATING: 5 of 5

"Criss-crossing London to photograph some iconic landmarks in low light was a fascinating session. The classroom teaching at the start got me ready to capture some great images. Ricci was very knowledgable and professional and gave me the confidence to try all sorts of shots. A great evening. Thanks so much."

Great low light evening in London

REVIEWER: Colin W.

RATING: 5 of 5

"Ricci led a really great evening, he set out some clear guidelines to achieve creative shots and what we could expect when out in the streets. The group had plenty of time at the various locations to experiment with different settings. Ricci was always on hand to lend his knowledge and expertise. I was pleased with some of my shots and I planning to hit the streets again to improve my technique."

Great opportunity to practice long exposures

RATING: 5 of 5

"My third session with Ricci and again I found him a great tutor - clear, supportive, fun, helpful and keen to make sure everyone got what they needed from the evening. A brief intro at the school with most of the time spent out and about in great spots around London getting light trails, lovely views on the Thames etc while learning about long exposures. Excellent! Thanks Ricci"

"I had a great time on this course playing with an area of photography that I haven't done before. Ricci gave a really useful intro in the classroom before taking the group out on the road. He spent lots of time with us and gave great feedback. I'm glad a I brought a range of lenses to play with including my fish eye lens. Now if only we could bar cars and trains from a couple of bridges :-)"

A great introduction to low light

REVIEWER: Ryan M.

DATE: NOVEMBER 2019

RATING: 5 of 5

"In a word, excellent. Ricci was informative, approachable, helpful and a great trainer for the course. I particularly enjoyed the structure of the course, the brief technical introduction, followed by 3.5 hours of walking through central London, stopping at a half dozen or so well selected locations with a variety of compositions to try out. We had plenty of time in each of these in which we could find some special shots and Ricci was always on hand to offer suggestions and advice."
