"A lovely day with excellent tuition. I'm no longer overwhelming with my camera options and I now have a much better idea where I'm going with my photography. Such good value for money and Richard certainly delivers his offer of free post course support. Thoroughly recommended."
"I worked with Richard on a number of film and video productions as a cameraman (to his director), mainly in the 1980 and 1990s. Having also worked briefly with other film directors like Roland Joffe, Mike Radford and a number of TV directors, I can honestly say that being with Richard was more inspiring and enjoyable than any of the others, and I learnt more about the very craft I was practicing from him than I had thought possible. I actually turned down a potential opportunity to study cinematography at the National Film School partly because I was already regularly working with Richard on some broadcast project or other and didn't want to lose those contracts. There's never any fuss with Richard; his quiet professionalism, his knowledge of photography and his skill at converting ideas into images are second to none, and I wish I had a fraction of his people skills! This may not be a review of his photography course (which I have just chanced upon), but if it helps anyone decide to try his course, I can only vouch for his long-term influence for the better on my work as a cameraman."
"A relaxed and thoroughly enjoyable course. The Thames side location was perfect with really interesting subjects and viewpoints, which I would never have considered on my own. Richard was very supportive and encouraging, with endless advice and practical demonstrations as we went along. He has a real knowledge of the technical and artistic sides of photography and a passion to encouraging free thinking and having an individualistic style. A highly recommended course ."
"I had a wonderful day and came away inspired and excited about my upcoming trip to Kenya. I learnt such a lot about my new camera and some great techniques to try. Richard understood what I needed and never tired of answering my endless questions. An all-round excellent course."
