This is my second photography course with Lou, having previously undertaken the beginners course a number of years ago. We met at the London Eye, during some pretty miserable weather - making for some great photography.

Lou is a knowledgeable, engaging and patient teacher who quickly puts you at ease. I have always wanted to do slow shutter speed photography but never had the confidence or know where to start. Lou set me on the right track, showed me the best way to set up and what to think about. We then had a great few hours walking the South Bank of the Thames taking different types of night scene photography.

I learnt so much and took some amazing photos along the way. I would highly recommend this, or any other of Lou's courses. Whilst COVID meant there were extra precautions to take (mask, sanitizer etc) it never got in the way of a great, interactive, practical course. Lou's passion for photography and to share her skills shine through it all.

Thanks Lou.

I gave this night photography tour as a gift to my wife and she has not been able to stop talking about how amazing it was.

From my perspective setting up the experience with Lou and the team was dead simple and they were very helpful with any questions I had.

My wife had an absolutely brilliant time and said it was as much a learning experience as it was a wonderful night on. She's constantly playin with her camera now and putting into practice all the things she learnt.

Many thanks to Lou for an excellent tour

So worth taking the few hours to spend with a professional photographer and teacher. Lou will have already scouted the best locations for those great shots. You will be able to concentrate on learning and practicing seeing "the light". Easy to reach locations and very accesible to public transport.
I will definately try the other offerings of tours by this company next time I am in London.

It was a great experience with Lou she is a fantastic teacher sitting down with me to see what level I was (beginner) and what did I know about my camera. I understand the principal of ISO, focus, shutter speed, and more as well as my camera workings far better with her. I have far greater pictures with her guidance than I would have on my own. I was going to wing it with what I learned on you tube (LOL). I am certainly glad I booked this trip. I will certainly practice what I have learned from her.
I would book another trip with Lou if I get a chance to come back to London.

I would highly recommend this and plan to do another one when I return to London. Lou was very knowledgeable and helpful in setting up camera for night photography as well as knowing great locations to get the best photos along the Thames River. I'm very happy with the photos I was able to take.

Thank you, Lou, for an excellent night photography photo walk and tuition.

It was a rather cold and overcast/cloudy evening, as we started out from Waterloo Station, and I had been thinking that there probably wouldn't be much chance of getting any great photos, however I actually got some really great captures of the iconic views around Southbank and Westminster.

Moreover, with Lou's thoughtful, extensive and hand's on tuition, throughout the photowalk, I really learned a lot about: my DSLR camera - I hadn't even known it had an electronic level!; how to make the best of my kit in low light; and how to use it at night for various types of shot. The time really flew by.

Really pleased with all the new skills I have learned.

Highly recommended and Lou is one of the best photography tutors I have met.
