I hired Robert for a private tutorial in product photography in order to improve our photographs for our e-commerce site. The course was excellent and well structured. We spent time going over equipment, lighting and post-production. Robert was able to tailor each topic to my skill level and offered unique advice to my situation whenever he could.
I highly recommend Robert due to the fact that he is both a fantastic photographer and a tremendous teacher.

I attended this course yesterday and had a great day! Even though it was absolutely freezing this didn't damper our enjoyment and learning experience. The day started with a coffee and a tutorial which incorporated Robert's really useful and clear notes (they tell you exactly what you need to know without all the jargon or being pages long). Then off we went to put these in to practice with a list of photos to focus on. 
I really enjoyed the freedom you have on this course, the walking pace is slow with no real time constraints meaning you can stop and take photos wherever or whenever something (or someone) catches your eye. All the time knowing that Andy is there should you need him and providing you with hints and tips as you go.

Finally the review in the pub!! Again relaxed with all your images on the laptop.
I am a complete novice to using a dslr and feel I can now move forward and feel more confident in getting better photography!

What an amazing class, I wanted to learn photography because I've struggled to understand it for such a long time but now after the class I can take photographs better than ever before. I was unsure if this was for me but I am glad I did it, it's for everyone.

I have never written a testimonial before but the help, support and training I have received from Robert Adcock has been so exceptional I felt compelled to write.
I have been interested in Photography for several years, I had a good camera but lacked the knowledge and skill to use it properly and was constantly disappointed, and frustrated by my poor images, to the point of giving up.
Due to acute anxiety, attending courses straight away would have been too difficult. Together Robert & I worked out a suitable training programme, which started with my assistance dog accompanying me whilst having one to one training sessions at Robert's studio, progressing as I gained confidence and camera skills to attending Robert's courses.
I have now attended several of Robert's courses, gone on his photowalks, learnt loads, had fun, met great people and now have images I can put on my wall.
Robert's patience, teaching methods, encouragement and ongoing support have been outstanding and truly valued. In a way he has opened up the world of photography for me and I can not recommend him enough.

We started in a coffee shop to go over the basics then set off on a great route around Penzance and the sea front etc. finishing off in a pub to review what we had done.

Robert was great, really approachable and friendly. He left you to get on with working the camera and photos out for yourself, stepping in where needed or offering some useful tips.

I really enjoyed the day and came away feeling very confident about using my camera how it should be used.

Phillip Greene

The course was very enjoyable. Robert was very easy to listen to and made sure that I followed all the main points before moving onto the next topic. We'll definitely will do another follow up course in October. Highly recommended.
