Important announcement

After nearly Eight Years of running photography courses,  Di and I have made the difficult decision to close our small business down.

Sadly for us (and I think for photography in general) not enough people want to take their photography beyond the limits of the mobile phone.

Di and I would like to give sincere thanks to the 5000 plus people that have taken part in the classes. We hope that you continue to enjoy the wonderful world of photography.

After a couple of months of backpacking in SE Asia and doing a lot of photography I will be doing a major update to this site with the aim of making it a valuable resource for anyone learning photography. Please check back around March 2017.

Thanks and Best Wishes,

Andy & Di Piggott

The day was fantastic! I am a beginner and went with someone who has some prior photography knowledge. We both came out of the session feeling that we had learnt a great deal and that the session presented great value for money!! Thanks for a wonderful day!!

Hi Andy, I enjoyed the class on Saturday so much I am still buzzing about it today. I had no idea I could learn so much in one day, and I'm more impressed that I am able to retain most of what you taught us, which I'm putting down to your teaching style (certainly not my memory). It was a fantastic day, I've already recommended it to several colleagues. Thanks so much. Gail

It was a very informative class for a complete novice like me! I have definitely learnt a lot more about my camera compared with before the workshop. It is also very reassuring that Andy likes my camera. Thank you.
