Sean is an utterly brilliant teacher! I came to the course with a camera I had borrowed, with little knowledge of how to use and no knowledge about photography apart from point and shoot and hope for the best. At the beginning I was feeling anxious and nervous about my lack of skills but within a very short space of time Sean made me feel relaxed and raised my confidence that I can do this! He has this great knack for inspiring you and gently pushing you to try new things whilst supporting your learning with where you are currently at on your photography journey. I love the way that Sean talks to you and not at you and shares his immense knowledge in such an easy to understand way, a true teacher! I felt I could ask any question and know he would give me another piece of the puzzle that I could easily understand and build my knowledge. You couldn’t help but get caught up with Sean’s passion and enthusiasm for photography. By the end of the lesson I was amazed within such a short space of time what I was able to achieve with Sean’s teaching and support.

Thoroughly enjoyed myself and learnt soooo much. Also tried new techniques that I would not otherwise have attempted. Sean is an excellent instructor - clear, patient, calm, encouraging and with lots of practical tips and suggestions to improve our photography. Spending the morning with a group of like minded enthusiasts was an added bonus. I'll be back for more. Many thanks to BM Photographers and Sean!

The biggest THANK YOU!!! To Sean Stark. He went above and beyond his duty. I have learnt so much that I even can't describe it in words. Sean is a great teacher, full of knowledge, passion and patience. Thank you for providing such a great opportunity for people like me, who has no knowledge but willingness to learn and passion for photography. Kind regards Maria Gajewska

This is my 2nd workshop with Sean J Stark and I have thoroughly enjoyed them both. Sean does a great job of explaining things and goes above and beyond to help with the individual issues of each member of the class. He is always encouraging with his comments.

Thank You so much to BM Photographers and Sean who lead our Meetup. I had a wonderful time and learnt so much - and made some great photos of the mist and cloud swirling around. Sean was respectful and encouraging and so generous with his knowledge and time. We got rained out half way through so we retreated to a coffee shop where we viewed our photos on Sean's laptop and got some great feedback from Sean. It was also great to see photos from the other participants to compare and contrast what each of us had captured and get feedback from one another as well as Sean.

Sean was really great at explaining a lot of technical stuff and help us with our camera settings. He went above and beyond expectations when it began to rain we sat down in a coffee shop and he critiqued our photos and gave us very helpful tips.
