Matt is such a great teacher and makes the process so fun - he knows how to break everything down and explain it in layman's terms, I never thought I would learn so quickly! Thanks, can't wait for the next one!

Matthew is a wonderful teacher with an incredible eye for photography and I would highly recommend his workshops, whether you're a beginner or advanced and looking to learn more on style and composition. He taught me as a beginner and I now always attend a workshop before I travel to a new destination to learn new tips for shooting in different locations. Matt is incredibly knowledgeable on the technical side, whilst sharing his passion for photography and his love of exploring new and interesting places. In London we explored some of the most iconic sites alongside hidden wonders in the heart of the city. I particularly loved a sunrise workshop when he taught me (very patiently!) how to capture the changing light. I couldn't recommend Matt's photography workshops more highly!

This class was great! When arriving Matt, the teacher, immediately made everyone feel welcomed and relaxed, talked to us all about previous photography experiences and so immediately you could see this was going to be much more interactive than other classes i’ve been too where it can be a bit more lecture-style. There was a clear structure to the class, I particularly liked the focus on panning from a technical standpoint but also the lessons about sorry telling in the market were very helpful to know how to create unique shots. The location was also perfect and clearly one Matt knew very well! I now feel completely confident with my camera and can’t wait to get out again and use the techniques I learned!
