Review: I’ve been on two courses with Elly now and would highly recommend them to anybody interested in furthering their camera skills and keen on introducing imagination into their photos, from beginner to more experienced photographers. I’ve learnt new techniques and skills and on top of this developed a lot more confidence as a photographer with Elly. Her approach to instructing is relaxed, down to earth and friendly and very encouraging whilst giving constructive criticism as well. All the right ingredients to help you learn and improve. ~ Phil
