The best of Autumn 2018

We have been a bit quite on our blog recently due to photographing weddings, training photography courses and of course our autumn colour photo shoots. This year the colours have been amazing and we have been flat capturing loads of great shots at Batsford Arboretum and Notgrove Woods. In this blog we would like to show you our favourites from the year. 

But just before we do I would like to thank everyone who booked a photo shoot with us and we can’t wait for Spring to begin capturing more beautiful shots of the flowers. 

If you are interested in a photo shoot with us whether it is on location or at our studio in Bourton-on-the-Water please look at our packages via the link below.

We have received some wonderful feedback from our students too. Thank you for all coming and cant wait to see you on the next course.

“I would highly recommend Alastair! I did a full day beginners course with him the other week and he made it so easy and enjoyable, I learned so much. As a complete beginner I now have the confidence to use my camera to its best, no question was trouble. I am definitely going back to see him again for other courses.” Fruszina Fekete”

“Jessica my daughter, has learnt so much on photography training courses and has given her so much confidence would highly recommend as its a amazing way to introduce photography and learn lots of skills to enhance photography Many thanks” Natasha Crossman

“Awesome day! Thank you Alistair, for the fun, for the valuable tips you shared, for treating us like family, for reinvigorating my love of photography and for patiently listening to us whine about how cold and wet we were! You are much more than a creative photographer, you are a gifted teacher as well. I can hardly wait for the next instalment of my education learning all your photography secrets. Thank you and see you again soon. Bonnie McCant
