I enjoyed the practical shoots presented by the lecturer. So being part of the group in shooting and photo critics strengthens my photographic abilities.”

“This was my first experience of a course on photography so my learning curve was very steep. Gerhardt was an excellent teacher: he had the passion and the patience to inspire both enthusiasm and confidence. The course, so masterfully put together has opened my eyes to the wonders of photography: to the scope for creativity and originality within the landscape and it has made so much more aware of the beauty, diversity, colour, texture and tone of nature around me and what can be enjoyed through capturing this magnificence from behind the lens. I am completely converted to continuing to learn more about this wonderful art form; to be able to emulate the great masters and to find something beautiful in the prosaic; to learn to interpret a scene and look for the story in the composition. It has taught me to be so much more conscience of the power of light; to be sensitive to the play of light on shapes and form; to look more closely for texture and tone – photography is indeed a tale by light (Sebastian Salgado). Nonetheless, one needs to learn the skills and techniques behind capturing the best of what nature has to offer and Gerhardt has been superb at conveying the essentials in our efforts to take the perfect shot. An excellent course which has given me the appetite to learn so much more.”

“Where do I start? Great Course. Great Lecturer. I’m into Macro – so Landscape Photography scared me a bit because of too much information in my viewfinder… but now I feel a bit more confident. Looking at other Photographers work, why their photos work and then applying that as far as possible (as off course you need to shoot and shoot and shoot, i.e. it comes with time and experience) in my own photography. The outings were fun and feedback and help with post production afterwards very valuable.”

“Gained a whole new perspective of landscape photography, largely from a documentary style side. As well as to look at the smaller, intimate landscapes. Learned new editing techniques. Very valuable. Excited to take the skills forward.”
