….though I was not a complete novice, I approached the [beginners]course with a willingness to learn and was not disappointed. Even the very changeable weather could not dampen our group’s enthusiasm to learn from you and improve on their skills, a most enjoyable and informative course. Thank you.. - Ron Gibson, Perth

Such an eye opener! Effortless teaching and amazing knowledge of different equipment gave a great, comfortable atmosphere for learning and experimenting with the camera. My holiday photos have improved tremendously.............thank you so much for your time and patience Stuart. - Sue Parrott, Inverurie

Pleasure to have known you and honestly changed my life in regards to photography. Without the coaching I would not have witnessed some amazing things through my lens.- Brian Webb, Balmedie

Good luck with your move Stuart. It hardly seems 5 minutes since I was on your Falconry workshop discussing your extensive course I was thinking about going on. I remember you saying I wouldn't regret signing up and boy were you right. I would never be taking the photos I'm taking if it wasn't for you sharing your expertise during those 8 weeks. I have a lot to thank you for! Good luck with the move, I hope you and your family have a great time in Fife.- Stephen Dobson, Aberdeen.

I started off attending Stuart's one day course at the Huntly Falconry centre, at this time I had never had my EOS 60D camera out of auto. Found Stuart to have an easy going manner and to be very professional and knowledgeable. At this time I had just retired from the sea and was looking for a rewarding hobby.Had a great day with some of the best photographs I had ever taken.Then enrolled into his eight day course which was one of my best decisions ever. Stuart guided me through the complexities of camera settings to the stage where I now almost know what I am doing.At present I am doing the monthly on-line mentoring which I find is helping me greatly, and I would recommend this to anyone who has done a basic course.Just discovered Stuart is moving to the Central Belt area and would like to wish him well and recommend him to anyone wanting to get on in photography. - Ali Bain, Garmouth

I attended Stuart's intro to DSLR course and subsequently others, including 8 weeks, Falconry, Star trails and more. Do you remember that great teacher at school who had the ability to explain things in a way which allowed you to understand them? That is Stuart. He set me up nicely on my road to learning photography. He is a superb teacher, very professional, knowledgeable and importantly friendly and welcoming. I cannot recommend his courses highly enough. A must for anyone wanting to learn. - Stuart Laird, Aberdeenshire

Thanks Stuart for my 4 hours of light bulb moments, you've given me the confidence to think I might just be able to do this one day !! What a brilliant teacher 🤓- Cassie Lees, Aberdeen

Have done a few courses with Stuart now, all equally as enjoyable! Just finished a 1-2-1 tutorial session my friends bought me for my birthday last year. Having covered the 8 week course recently, it was a great opportunity to explore and expand on things learnt. Thanks Stuart :) - Nicola Jamieson, Portlethen
