    I really enjoyed my 2 hours with Emanuele who kindly changed the event to meet the changing difficult weather conditions. His depth of knowledge backed up his patience really helped me to better understand concepts such as separation. A natural teacher and person who builds confidence in the student, any time spent with him is time well invested.

    Excellent. Tutor started by explaining the theory of photography and then moved on to explain the technicalities of my camera, settings and how I can get a good portrait shot in sunlight and in shade. He has also assigned challenges as exercises for us to do based on our levels. All in all I thought it was a great use of a bright sunny weekend in Edinburgh. Thank you for organizing these workshops.

    I've been to a couple of meet ups with Emanuale and both were very enjoyable. His passion and knowledge is obvious, while offering a teaching style that's relaxed and encouraging. The photography challenges he gives you allow you to immediately try new things, get some feedback and ask/learn more if need be. He's taught me things I didn't know I needed to learn - for me that's an ideal outcome!
