With a huge range of different types of camera, let alone all the various brands, it's no wonder that people often ask what's the best camera for them to buy. There's no simple answer to that question though, as everyone's needs, wants, and hands, are different, so I've put together this general advice which might help to narrow down your choices, and be a bit more prepared for the decision you're about to make...Read More
A short article with tips about how to set up your camera's exposure, and why you can do it this way, so that you will get correct exposures for shooting the moon.Read More

The enquiry arose after I posted a particular photo, and was later clarified as "I've got the same equipment as you, but things never come out as sharp as yours", or words to that effect.

I have attended two courses with Daniel
"I have attended two courses with Daniel, looking at coastal and macro photography. Both sessions were very well organised with a class session followed by outdoor practical work. Daniel is very patient and takes time with everybody to ensure that each person understands how to achieve good photographic images for the relevant topic. The courses are priced reasonably and more importantly are very enjoyable." Marguerite via Trustpilot
Another great day spent with Daniel
"Another great day spent with Daniel learning the basics and how to control my camera. A very informative day presented in an easy to understand format. Have read about aperture, shutter speed and ISO but never really understood it. This workshop gave me a much better practical understanding of how these work together. Have been out practicing today doing everything in manual mode and really enjoyed experimenting. I will get a lot more pleasure from my photography now that I know more about what I am doing. Would highly recommend this workshop." Steve via Trustpilot
Until today I had no idea what I was doing
"Until today I had no idea what I was doing with my camera and how to use it. Thanks to Daniel everything now makes sense and it's now down to me to practice what I have learnt. Thanks for a great day and giving me that photography bug even more!" Steve Leeds via Trustpilot
Fantastic 1 to 1 private tuition with Daniel
"Fantastic 1 to 1 private tuition with Daniel. After a year of ‘playing’ about with my camera I needed to be taught some of the basics, Daniel made this simple to follow and demonstrated as he went along. I feel like I’ve picked up some handy tips and will definitely put what I have learnt into practice as soon as this rain goes away!" Cassie via Trustpilot
"A very enjoyable experience, walking from Blackfriars to Westminister Bridge. Although I have walked along this route at other times, Daniel gave you an insight into seeing things with a photgrapher eye. He provided helpful advice about the settings to use, giving you a chance to try different ways of capturing an image. He also responded to any queries of how to shoot particular scene."

Great Session Top Tuition
"My husband and I attended the Know The Basics workshop. It was a very enjoyable and informative day. The session was interactive and set at a good pace. Daniel’s friendly presentation was very effective with an excellent supporting booklet. We now have the confidence to use our cameras competently and enjoy our photography even more. Totally recommend Daniel to help you wherever you are on your photography path." Julie Rose via Trustpilot
