“The London workshop was amazing! It was exactly what I needed to learn the basics of photography. Matthew is really friendly and a great teacher. While I was getting to grips with the basics, there were others in the group with a lot more experience, but he gave us all individual attention. A great teacher for all levels. I absolutely loved my day on Matthew’s course and would recommend it to anyone!” Freddie Waters
