    It was a slow start as only two of us attended and no model was available. However the energy and enthusiasm from our tutor was immense. We did manage to find a model who happened to be walking through the Abbey ruins with her own photographer and we asked if we could join them and they agreed. This is where our tutor came into her own, her direction and attention to detail was outstanding . She was keen to view the images we had taken and provide support for further development . I think we were luck to have her presence as a tutor .

    This photo was taken on my Sony Xperia 1 iii smartphone at Virginia Water Pavilion Lake. After a long walk around I managed to be at the perfect spot to capture the golden hour at 18:40 on 5 September 3023. I took this shot to represent happy times with your loved ones. I edited the shot slightly with lightroom to increase the white balance and bring out those gorgeous colours. After a busy period at work this was just what I needed.

    I?m was born and raised in San Francisco and now live in Uganda, working as a professional photographer and safari guide. This lioness is one of the most beautiful creatures I have ever encountered. She was resting high up in a tree at Murchison Falls, in the northwest region. Before taking this photo, she roared at me, baring her sharp canines. It was a simple warning not to overstep her boundaries. The lioness had some cubs located at the base of the tree so she was protective of them. Th
