Pallanne, Midi-Pyrenees, France

Thanks very much for portrait photograph course yesterday.
I really enjoyed all the content and picked up an amazing amount of information in a very short time.
Your open friendly approach was well complimented by your massive technical and professional experience.
Thanks for all the extra tips and tricks you gave us in relation to photography in our business.
After an hour or so drive up to you, croissants and good coffee where a real bonus.
Lunch was excellent so thanks to Julia for making us feel so welcome and relaxed.


Masseube, Gers, France

I can highly recommend Colin’s day Portait course.
A great day spent dusting off my camera skills, under Colin’s expert guidance .
A very warm welcome, from Colin and Julia, and their two Labradors. A fun day, lots of delicious food, a fair bit of giggling and of course learning some new skills in their beautiful new studio space.
