Fundamentals of Photography
Stuart at Dreghorn Photography has been a great help to myself learning how to get the best use out of my DSLR in terms that I understand.
I have done a day class with him where he had a variety of people at different levels all with a wide variety of camera and I feel he was more than capable to help us all get the best out of our cameras in a nice simple manner. I then took part in a 4 day course which expanded my knowledge more but where I feel I have benefited most was in his one to one tuition where I can get the knowledge that suits me and my needs which does seem to be never ending!
Stuart puts you at ease with the camera and its functions, for me the best part is explaining it in lay mans terms, not trying to baffle me with terminology that I don’t understand, I think in such a specialist field is a rarity. Could not recommend him highly enough!
Studio Hire & Tuition
I’ll give you the short version of a long story here. I had spent some time looking for studio space to hire in Glasgow for a shoot that I said I would do. After trawling the internet I came across Stuarts studio, read the existing reviews and booked up.
I’m glad I did, I have a bit of trial by fire approach to my photography which is fine for landscapes and architecture but when someone asks you to do a studio shoot on limited time, things have got to change.
I asked Stuart for some of his time to help in an initial lighting setup and it grew into a bit of a one on one tutorial session which was excellent. Stuart helped me develop my existing ‘skill set’ which is mainly with speedlights and apply it to the studio environment which can sometimes look a little overwhelming.
This was the best couple of hours I have spent with my camera having not had any formal training. Stuart is very knowledgeable and great at explaining the nuts and bolts of what you want to achieve and I took away a lot from the time ( knowledge that is, not pinching the lighting gear!! ) I have moved on from my original plan of backdrop with two speedlights to a four light studio set up for the shoot, which is great. I now feel a lot more comfortable going into the studio tomorrow to work on the shoot.
I can thoroughly recommend Stuart and the studio, super helpful, really nice guy and I’ll be booking more time their to play with the studio lighting, its a new addictive and creative space for me to develop.
Five stars, dont hesitate to book!
Business / LinkedIn Headshots
Very good quality photos for a very good price.
Worked with us to get the best result and made the experience relaxed and enjoyable. Not an easy task when at least one of us hates being in front of a camera at any time.
Stuart made sure he understood what we wanted to achieve and the end products were spot on.
An excellent service from start to finish.
Fundamentals of Photography
Stuart’s half day photography class was oustanding, having been on two previous courses, Stuart made all aspects of what is often a minefield, light work in simple, easy to understand language for all who attended the course.
His depth of knowledge and un fussy manner made asking questions easy, particularly so for the beginners, in a class of photographers of all levels, were comfortable and at ease. Your depth of knowledge and uncomplicated explanations made the 4 hours fly in.
Thank you for this introduction, to the “Magical world of Photography!”
Fundamentals of Photography
I received this course as a gift and it has been the best gift ever.
The course is fantastic and I truly mean it.
At the course I learned things about my camera I never knew and how to take it off the dreaded “Auto” mode with confidence. So much so that I used the manual settings at my son’s graduation and what a difference to be in control of the camera and the picture.
All this was achieved through my course with Dreghorn Photography and I will be back. If you have a DSLR you need Dreghorn Photography to show how to get the best out of your camera, your hobby and your skill.
The course is taught very well with excellent inter-personal skills and set for all levels – highly recommended and if you haven’t booked it ………WHY NOT !!!!!
Walking Photography Tour – Night
I wanted to learn more about night/city photography.
Did 4 hour night walking tour – great locations and covered not, just what was happening there & then- but relating it to other situations.
It was not a ‘this is how you do it’ session…. more what do you want from this shot and how do you achieve it – allowing for each individual’s input and a more rounded learning.
I felt at ease, nothing was rushed and if you didn’t ‘get it’ first time round, Stuart was happy to go over it again. A very good confidence building session with a great instructor. Thanks Stuart !!!
I wanted to buy a photo session as a “something different” gift for my nieces birthday.
Dreghorn Photography was recommended to me and I’m glad it was. From the warm welcome by Stuart (owner and photographer), the complementary refreshments and comfy sofas to the wide range of packages on offer – including the optional hire of a make-up artist, I could not have been happier with my purchase.
My niece was treated with respect throughout and thoroughly enjoyed the pampering of the make-up artist Melanie and was made to feel completely at ease by Stuart (not always an easy job!).
When it came to choosing which photographs, Stuart offered advice and recommendations without any ‘hard sell’ which made it easy to pick the final selections.The end result was a fabulous set o photographs that we were all really pleased with and I will happily recommend Dreghorn Photography to anybody who listens.
