Getting off Auto

Jane is an excellent tutor & explains the subject really well. I’ve learned so much from the workshop & it’s given me the confidence to use a camera now in different environments. It was a fun day too & useful with all the feedback from the practical sessions. Thanks… Read more “Getting off Auto”


Food Styling and Photography Workshop January 2023

Thoroughly enjoyed Jane’s ‘Food Styling & Photography’ Workshop. The session was well planned, set at a good pace and had plenty of content, with tips & tricks along the way. Jane was very person-centred in that she met everyone’s different learning needs, whether that was someone with very basic digital camera skills (me) to another… Read more “Food Styling and Photography Workshop January 2023”

Love Your Lens Facebook group

Hi Jane I’ve just watched your video on setting goals and I was struck by how much effort and personal interaction you have with your group members! You can find many resources and YouTube help videos out there for everything but it’s very rare to find actual one to one comments and help. Then for… Read more “Love Your Lens Facebook group”

One to One photography lessons with Love Your Lens

I have attended 4 workshops with Jane and had a course of one to one sessions to improve my photography. During this time I have gone from ‘ all the gear and no idea’ to someone who now shoots in manual, getting the shots that I want. I would probably describe Jane as the ‘Fisher… Read more “One to One photography lessons with Love Your Lens”

Loved Jane’s Love Your Lens phone workshop! Jane is very friendly & welcoming – also an amazing photographer.

Had a fab afternoon with Jane in Chester getting to grips with street photography. We all started off feeling a bit self-conscious, but her friendly encouraging style soon got us into the flow.

I recently attended a product photography course with Jane and would highly recommend it.

Thank you, Jane Burkinshaw! You’ve taken me from having an expensive bit of kit in my hands, not knowing who is controlling who, wary of going off auto and taking terrible shots, to knowing a lot more about my kit and to taking shots that I’m now pleased to admit that they are mine. You’re a… Read more “One to one tuition”
