I really enjoyed this workshop with Matthew. It was so good having his expertise pointing out best shots/camera settings etc. I got some fantastic photos which I wouldn’t have got if I was on my own walking around Richmond Park. It was such an enjoyable day and learnt some new techniques. Thanks Matthew!

Ally Cologna - 9 August 2023
Fantastic evening in Richmond Park. Matthew took the time to help me - a complete novice with both camera and subject. I felt included and helped even though there were some very experienced photographers present. A very friendly atmosphere and a great introduction to wild life photography. I learnt a lot in a short space of time.
William Vojkovic - 3 June 2023
Had a great evening in Richmond Park and was reminded why I enjoy photography. Matthew is a great teacher and the session catered for both beginners and more experienced photographers.
William Lillis - 19 May 2023
I have recently attended both the London St Paul's and Tower Bridge early evening class and the Richmond Park wildlife and sunset session. Both were excellent, the classes were relatively small and Matthew managed to get around everybody and made sure we understood the points he was making. It would be fair to say that the class was mixed ability but this did not detract from the session. Regardless of what level you are at Matthew gave everybody something to work on. I would happily recommend Matthews classes to other photographers.
Mark Rowlands - 16 May 2023
This was my second course with Matthew and I can recommend this. Matt gives everyone attention irrespective of their experience , skill level and equipment and you will leave a better photographer than when you started.
David Gervais - 2 May 2023
Perfect photography session in Richmond Park, Matt makes it very easy with clear and precise explanations as well as great tips on technical matters and composition. All of it in a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere!
Nigel Attenborough - 25 April 2023
Thanks to Matthew, I learnt a lot about wildlife photography in just 3 hours. His technical advice and ideas on composition were first rate. Despite being new to this type of photography I got some pictures I am very happy with. At the same time, Matthew managed to deal with a group ranging from beginners to experienced photographers. Altogether an excellent workshop.
Michelle Humphrey - 25 March 2023
Informative and educational few hours, I came away with more understanding of the workings of the camera, thanks to Matthew.
Mark Bennett - 19 February 2023
I spent an excellent afternoon in Richmond Park on one of Mathew's photography workshops photographing nature. He has fantastic delivery, and his enthusiasm for photography and nature is utterly contagious. I would highly recommend his workshops.
AnneMarie Impey - 22 January 2023
Matt was very patient with me, an absolute beginner & has given me enough information & confidence to work on producing some great photos.
Nicholas Bowman - 3 December 2022
Matt provided first cla ss guidance on a misty afternoon/evening as we walked around Richmond PArk. The deer obliged by standing and sitting as a herd. Matt's good humoured, easy-going approach made the afternoon all the better. He went through the camera settings as necessary, and provided guidance on getting the best shots. His own enthusiasm inspired us all. And I'm very pleased with the images I took. Highly recommended!
Dan Waller - 30 November 2022
The greatest compliment I can offer is that I re-booked the same course a few weeks later - so happy was I with the photos I took! Suffice to say, Matthew is an easy-going, inspiring teacher, who pitches the workshop just right, whether you are a newbie, an enthusiastic amateur or a pro. Plus, his knowledge of the park and a seeming sixth sense to know where the stags were going to be made for a brilliant workshop.
Natalie Williams - 10 November 2022
Fantastic workshop - Matthew has so much knowledge and made it a great experience.
Mariyana Tasheva - 5 November 2022
As usual, wonderful workshop with Matt. This is the second one I have done with him, and strongly recommend him. He is a pro in what he does, a very easy-going and patient guy who takes the time to explain to everyone about photo techniques, gives enough time to everyone to practice, it's like a walk in the park with a friend, who teaches you photography :) Thanks Matt!
Stuart Carter - 3 November 2022
I've now done two photographic days with Mathew and they were both great. Mathew is knowledgeable and encouraging. These days will benefit Beginners and experienced photographers.
Simon Prutton - 26 October 2022
The Richmond Park session was my second outing with Matt and I’ve recommended him verbally to everyone who will listen. He’s patient in teaching you techniques and will likely show you things you didn’t know your camera was capable of. His knowledge of Richmond Park, and the behaviour of the deer, allowed me to get all the shots my skills allowed…and the same was true on Skomer Island, which was my first trip out with him. If you’re in any doubt about buying into one of his photo tours, don’t hesitate - you will not regret it.
Steven Wilson - 26 October 2022
Yet another great session with Matthew. Informative, relaxed and most enjoyable with the added bonus of seeing some amazing wildlife. Thanks again 👌
Steven Heathcote - 25 July 2022
Very enjoyable tour of Richmond Park together with useful tips for all levels of photographer. Matt was friendly approachable and knowledgable, familiar with all the camera systems we had between us. The tour/class was a bit pricey but good quality.
Edward Ninham - 17 July 2022
A really interesting, helpful and enjoyable class at Richmond Park. There was a broad range of abilities in the group, each with different cameras and lenses (particularly focal lengths), but Matt supported everyone well to ensure everyone was learning and improving
Leah Pullen - 11 May 2022
Great good and found it very helpful
Ollie Sidwell - 4 May 2022
Matt was great. We were entry level camera users and he was very helpful, knowledgeable and gave us plenty of tips!
Mia Buerk - 30 January 2022
Loved this walk in Richmond Park with Matt. He lead us around the best spots and gave us lots of tips for how to get some fantastic shots. I enjoyed it very much and would love to attend more of his trips in future.
Mathias Marteau - 28 January 2022
I highly recommend this workshop, I'm a rookie in wildlife photography. Thanks to Matthew and his precious advice, I have now a better knowledge of my camera and how pictures should be taken. So don't hesitate to book, Matthew is a great teacher
Andrew M - 20 November 2021
A very enjoyable three hours. Learned lots of interesting tips about how to use my camera, and had a good chance to enjoy the wildlife of Richmond Park. Recommended.
Sam - 30 October 2020
I had a great afternoon Photography lesson yesterday in Richmond Park. Matthew was great at explaining and giving tips to take great photographs that I will definitely use in the future. I highly recommend it. Thanks again Matthew.
Ella - 10 September 2020
Matthew has a great teaching style. I learnt loads and picked up some great tips. A really enjoyable and informative workshop. Thanks Matt
Oliver - 17 August 2020
Really enjoyed the evening and learnt really useful skills that I was later able to use to get the images I wanted, especially around focus and framing. Matthew has clearly put a lot of effort into learning about a variety of cameras to make sure he can help people with theirs, especially as the menus can be pretty confusing. Matthew is also really helpful, approachable and easy to talk to. It was easy to socially distance as appropriate, with a few glances at the camera to help guide the session. Oh, and of course I ended up with some good photos to top it all off.
Rachel - 28 August 2019
This was a great experience. Matthew was a fantastic teacher with great knowledge and experience in photography. His technical instructions were very clear and easy to understand and he gave brilliant suggestions about composition as well as tips and tricks. Richmond Park was absolutely beautiful, stunning landscape with lots of deer as well as swans and birds. Got some great photos and learned a lot!
