“I was slightly anxious before my session with Jess, as I have no experience in photography at all beyond taking snaps! I had watched some short videos on how to use the camera (I had never used a DSLR either) and I was convinced I would be using the pre-set settings. But I was delighted that Jess told me we were going to learn how to use the manual settings, learning from scratch!

It was brilliant. Jess took me for a cup of tea and went through all the settings and gave me cheat sheets to help me remember. But by far the most helpful part was having a go. Having the privilege of having a photographer of Jess’s quality helping me to understand the camera, light and framing was wonderful. Who knew that I could take pictures like those?

Since my session I have continued to practise and I am determined to improve. I’d like to get back to Jess to learn some more new skills!”
