I found Andy not only to be a skilled photographer and highly knowledgeable in post-processing techniques, but someone who gladly shares that knowledge. Andy’s ability to see the final image from the raw ingredients that nature provides is immense. Spending time with Andy has taken my photography to another level and I will be forever grateful for his patience, skill and dedication to my own personal development.

I first met Andy at a two-day Landscape photography workshop in the Lake District where he was the workshop leader. From the first meeting with the group, Andy ensured he prioritised peoples needs in terms of expectations of the course. His knowledge of photography is exceptional and this linked to the fact he is a very good teacher made the whole two days so worthwhile. Throughout the whole day-time, he would share information and tips for gaining better images. During the evening he was still generous with his time reviewing peoples work and giving advice.
I would advise anyone considering booking with Andy to just do it. It will be time well spent where you will learn and simultaneously have an enjoyable experience.

I have known Andy for several years now, ever since meeting on a Landscape photography workshop in Assynt, North West Scotland. He has now taught me on several workshops both in the UK and abroad.
Andy is an inspiring teacher, both in the technical aspects of photography but also in the even more important area (to me at least) of composition.
Andy really has the 'eye' for composition. I have found him superb at teaching the art of pre-visualisation. He observes potential compositions, finding the little details that make everything come together. He will stop to consider something as simple as a fence post and end up making something wonderful out of it.
In the field as a teacher he is selfless about giving hints, sowing the seeds of great photo ideas, advising on compositional approach, camera placement and framing. He knows how to make a photo look balanced.
Andy is very charming and has a great sense of humour. I cannot hesitate in recommending him.
