Paul proved to be a knowledgeable and accomplished photographer, keen to guide and offer advice rather than instruct. I did learn a lot. The hides were extremely hot, as was the weather, but the locations and the birds were something else. From the moment we were in the first hide (quality shots of Rollers and Red-footed Falcon to the time we left the last hide at the end of the tour, beautiful birds were in abundance. I have too many keepers and need another hard drive! In conclusion, my best bird photo holiday to date – so good I’ve booked a slot on next years tour.”

“After spending a couple of days at Paul’s excellent little owl hide in Yorkshire I was able to put together a great portfolio of images of the little owls displaying many forms of behaviour. I also had the added bonus of photographing the chick. I would recommend it highly to anyone wanting to photograph little owls. Paul is an all round good guy to boot.”

“It’s now 5 fantastic photographic days with Paul and many more days to follow. On each occasion he has put me in the right place at the right time, for me to capture the image. Easy bit right..! If you’re sat in the house watching NatGeo wild with your camera in a bag, stop, email Paul and get out.”
 
Scott Ward, South Yorkshire

“I must admit to being a bit nervous at the thought of spending the day with a professional photographer as I am a total novice, but Paul is very easy to be with. He taught me a lot and by the end of the day I had photos I am proud to display on my wall. I also understand more about my camera and the art of photography. My next course is already booked!”

Julie Butterworth, West Yorkshire

“A big THANK YOU for the day you spent with Wayne and Kevin. They both really enjoyed the whole experience and came away feeling they had learnt a lot. Thank you for giving them a special day out with their cameras.”

Jan Shipard, North Yorkshire

“Paul spent the entire day with us from early morning to sunset. Paul’s enthusiasm really shines through..”

Janet Matthews Lane, West Yorkshire

“Thanks for a great day out in the wonderful Dales! I learnt several new techniques which I wouldn’t have come across anywhere else, so this day was such a valuable experience! It was great to visit different places to get the most out of the landscape, each time practising Paul’s top tips!

Lucy Clews, Lancashire

“I had a great day with Paul and learned a lot. Even as an experienced photographer I picked up many tips and tried some new techniques too..”

Nik Goulthorp, West Yorkshire

“I went as a complete beginner, keen to learn some basics in wildlife photography that I could take away and expand on. Paul’s teaching skills, knowledge of photography and the structure of the day were absolutely fantastic! I learnt such a lot about camera settings, light and composition. After just one day, I felt I was no longer a beginner! I thoroughly recommend doing a workshop with Paul, whatever stage you are at.”

Sam Bell, Nottinghamshire

“Paul has a professional and enthusiastic approach to his work. The many tips and techniques he showed me were invaluable; I’m already looking forward to my next photo shoot..”

Tim Percharde, North Yorkshire

I couldn’t believe the abundance of wildlife and how close we got!! Thank you for the technical bits… they have given me the confidence to try new things. Thank you once again.. oh and for lunch!!

Caroline Huber, North Yorkshire

“I would recommend Paul, to anyone interested in gaining more experience in digital photography. Paul is prepared to show you everything to do with taking good pictures, from setting the camera up, composing the shot, and telling you how your picture could have been better taken…

David Link, West Yorkshire

“As a beginner you helped me with camera set up and composition which enable me to get superb owl pictures. I will definitely be booking another workshop!”

Steve Evans, West Yorkshire

 “I had a great day and learned so much about my camera and came away with some fantastic shots. I’ve already booked another workshop..”

Rick Forster, Lancashire

“They are the best wildlife photos I have taken so far.. no exaggeration! I’m absolutely delighted. I learned so much from you and am still on a high from the day!”

Rob Dutton, West Yorkshire

 “Thanks for an enjoyable day. The birds were stunning. The merlin was beautiful, and your setting inspired.”

Bob McMaster, West Yorkshire

“Dawn and I want to thank you Paul for the brilliant time we had photographing birds of prey. The welcome to Ben’s place was warm, and, with their knowledge of the birds and your expertise at photography, the whole experience is to be recommended. We would love to join you again.”

Dawn & Julie Butterworth, West Yorkshire

“Paul has been scouting different areas of Yorkshire for years, and knows many great places for wildlife. The moors above Reeth proved a happy hunting ground, with plenty of grouse appearing, posing, and entertaining with their amusing calls. The day started early-ish, at 7.30, but it was worth it in order to get the morning light and a period of the day when the grouse are more active. Paul took care of all the driving, motoring up and down the moor, stopping when photographic opportunities presented themselves, and effectively using the car as a mobile hide. It’s a wonderfully lazy way to do wildlife photography, but when the birds come as close as they do to the car, why not? It also makes life easier as the grouse, while more jittery around walkers, seem relatively relaxed around the car.

There were opportunities to get the classic shots of grouse in the purple heather, strutting around or with just their heads bobbing out, as if checking for predators. Others could be found posing on the drystone walls, and as well as the individual grouse, we came across large family groups – more than half a dozen perched together on a wall on the horizon at one point, later an even larger group right by the roadside. All in all, it made for a great day’s photography..

Craig Lindsay, Northamptonshire

“Hi Paul. I had a great time and learnt a lot, which was what I wanted. Really pleased with the day. I enjoyed your company just as much and have now subscribed to your blog. I will join you again in the future.”

Richard Hopkins, West Yorkshire

I would just like to say, that I thoroughly enjoyed my photographic day out with you, the locations and advice were spot on. I am already using some of your techniques…”

Brian Jacques, North Yorkshire

“Just a very quick note to day thank you for a great day,  very enjoyable, and very informative and very inspiring  –  really enjoyed it.”
