Louise Morris is one of nature's natural teachers. In her case her instinctive sense in photography and technical knowledge gives meaning to the phrase the art of seeing. She will guide you to framing shots in a unique way but at no time be condescending or haughty, as so many artists can be. A privilege to learn with her.

I learned a huge amount from Louise. I started my photography a few years ago and because of Louise's amazing and insightful tuition, I am now better equipped to carry out my shoots. The detail in which she was able to help me better understand both the technical and artistic side of photography was fantastic. She helped understand how to solve issues I was experiencing with lighting, positioning, composition and my camera settings, amongst other things. I love that she believes it is not always about the equipment you are using, but more about how you are using it. I thought at one point I may need to change my camera to get better results, however Louise helped me understand that this is not always the case. Sometimes it is just about a few setting changes, moving your position and the light you are working with. Louise is extremely patient, kind, thoughtful and a joy to be around. She always helped me feel at ease. I would recommend her all day long! Thank you Louise for helping become a better photographer.
