A very pleasing testimonial

I was lucky enough to have been given the 4 hour Cotswold tour with Tony (The Picture Taker) for my birthday. Being an avid wildlife photographer, I hadn’t taken any landscape shots really for a number of years and a long time before I knew anything about photography. So this made me excited but very nervous about doing this, but rest assured when I showed up Tony put us all (there were 3 of us) at ease.

The day started with a sit down with a coffee in a local café, and we all talked about the cameras and lenses we use and what type of photography we like to take. This was not a brag about your photography skills session, but a chilled out way that Tony could get an idea of skill levels (or lack of in my case) and equipment so that he could tailor the session accordingly to make sure that everyone felt happy that they could all get some nice photos.

There were 4 locations we went to with all 4 being different and Tony made sure that he went over some ideas on what to look for and showed us some particularly beautiful scenes to capture at each location. He checked the photos we were taking, explained how you could improve, compose, frame and how to adapt depending on the equipment you had.....I say this as I don’t have the best lens for landscape but Tony definitely made me feel comfortable with what I had and made sure that I got some photos I am now proud of. 

 

Throughout the whole time we were out, Tony was answering every question we asked and was sharing his knowledge and love of landscape photography and at all times made us feel comfortable and relaxed whilst giving us this masterclass.

 

A brilliant tour of the Cotswolds for beginners and experienced photographers alike and a definite must for landscape enthusiasts and lovers of the Cotswolds.
