I can honestly say I have always been scared of cameras and now feel able to combat those fears and take beautiful photos of my items.

Photocraft Shropshire 2013

I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed the course. I feel really inspired!

One of the surprising and wonderful results from the course has been the new supportive network I now have with my fellow attendees. It’s been great fun sharing tips, results and equipment queries with them

I have learnt so much.  I feel like I have you all to myself whilst watching/reading the daily lessons.  So pleased I signed up!

This course is a revelation to me and I'm amazed at how much I'm enjoying *not* using that wretched AUTO button. Great teaching Lyndsey, thank you so much.

Many thanks for the course. I have learnt more than I had ever expected and I will never look at a camera in the same way again!

I've learned more in the first 5 days than I ever have photography wise doing the Photocraft course!

I'm beginning to feel sad that the course is coming to an end.

As well as giving me practical, technical skills, the course has made me take stock of what I want for my business and how I want it to look. Lyndsey has encouraged me to strive for the best possible image for my business and through doing the course I have been reminded how much I love what I do.

I can't thank you enough, your course was the single best thing I've done towards my business so far.

Thank you for a lovely day, the setting is so beautiful and atmosphere so relaxed it was like a spa day!

I feel refreshed going back to my business with new found enthusiasm, knowledge and creativity.

Cannot wait to start the next lesson! I love waking up, doing the mundane school run then rushing back through the door like Christmas morning to unlock another lesson!!

I definitely felt emotional reading the last lesson of the online course, it's been such a journey but so rewarding.

I really wish I'd been able to take this course years ago when I first started my business!

The knowledge I've learned was invaluable - I have no doubt that I will make more sales and get more exposure from the massively improved product shots I can now take. I've had a DSLR camera for years and never had a clue how to use it on anything but auto!

I decided to do the Designers & Makers course after going to a workshop run by Lyndsey where I learnt more in an hour than I'd ever learnt about photography.

The 5-week course didn't disappoint.

Your business needs this!

The best two day course I have attended in a long time and one that my business will benefit from.

My confidence has soared!

Since completing the Photocraft course my confidence has soared and I can actually find my way around my camera settings now.

I look at the world in a completely different way now, and can see potential photo shoots in every location I visit.

I appreciate colours much more and especially enjoyed the colour trend section and product placement for the perfect shoot.

Lyndsey did a brilliant job of simplifying it and I finally feel like I have a good understanding of the technical bits and bobs. The forum interaction by Lyndsey and the other group members was really great and just as valuable as the lessons themselves. I loved all the suggestions for styling photos and presentation - really simple and useful tips!

Thank you very much - I wholeheartedly recommend this course.

My idea of taking a good photo before this course was simply aiming and hoping for the best. Now I have a better understanding of what my camera can achieve and with a little bit of planning, I can get professional results without having to pay professional fees.

Book today, you will not be disappointed.

Lyndsey's teaching style is extremely accessible, simplifying the complexities of photography techniques and enabling you to understand how to achieve the best images for your products.

I highly recommend the course - it is invaluable for anyone wanting to learn how to take their own quality pictures of their products.

I have fallen in love with colour and styling and I'm so excited about building my brand.
