Client Reviews

“I just finished Carla’s photography course such a great class in Manchester. Carla is a really good teacher and always happy to share her vast knowledge and experience! I would definitely recommend the course to all beginners and improvers, thanks Carla!”

Laura Bridge

Just finished the beginners photography course and would highly recommend. Great course to start you off on how to use your camera and all the different settings with how they interact. Carla’s really helpful throughout the day, and especially in the afternoon whilst taking shots around Manchester.”

Adam Dale

Great course from Carla. Learnt how to use my camera with confidence. Spent the morning learning the key techniques and the afternoon practising them. Carla taught us how to use the camera and how to take more interesting photos. Great tour of some good spots of the NQ.”

Evie Brockwell

Just finished Carla’s photography course, I turned up knowing basics and finished with more knowledge. I now know things I didn’t know before about the settings etc. I would highly recommend this course, lovely lady with a lot of photography knowledge and can’t wait to see the plans on an advanced course!”

Laura Oxley

“Currently doing Carla’s photography course. Excellent value for money and carla is a great teacher – really gets you to think about things in a different way. Would highly recommend!”

Nicki Lodge

“Carla, I would just like to say how much I have enjoyed your Photography course. Although I was use to most settings on my DSLR I never had the confidence to go fully manual till attending your course. This coupled with explanations about composure etc has opened a whole new world up for me and my camera. I attended my first ever night shoot with no flash and totally in manual mode with results I could have only dreamed of before.”
