‘Having ‘dabbled’ in photography since age 14 with film cameras and now in my late sixties, I felt somewhat offside in the digital camera age & had almost lost interest in the hobby. I saw a course advertised with BSOP and spoke to Kam who advised I commence with Phase 1 (the starter). Despite initial misgivings at having to start at the beginning, I soon realised that I had forgotten (or never knew) a lot of the technical stuff as from the first lesson we were on a steep learning curve – no time to get bored and with Kam’s instructions ringing in our ears “Turn off flash….no more auto”!​

I certainly know a heck of a lot more than I did at the beginning and it has awakened my interest in taking photographs, increased my confidence levels and encouraged me to tackle subjects that previously I would not have contemplated...
