FEEDBACK from attendees of  Earthly Light Tuition and Workshops:


Pam M 2016: 

Hi Stewart 

Thank you very much for Monday we both had a fab informative day without being too much for our brains to take in, We'll definitely be recommending you to anyone else we know interested that might be in the future.  
Thanks for all the info attached too, you're just a wealth of knowledge & we're so glad we chose you to do our course with. 
Pam :)
Sam P & Alison 2016: 
Myself and my girlfriend just finished a half day workshop with Stewart, learnt a lot about my camera, composition, processing and about Aberdeen and Shire. He's patient, incredibly knowledgeable and very amicable which made it an amazingly worthwhile experience, would totally recommend to anyone wishing to further their knowledge and have a great day out, cheers Stewart!


Andrea D 2015:

Just finished a 6 week course with Stewart, and have really enjoyed it, given me a much better understanding of what my camera can actually do, rather than just sticking it on Auto all the time! Looking forward to continuing to take photos and visit some of the beautiful places you have mentioned. thanks very much Stewart.


Theresa S 2015: Hi Stewart, 

Thank you very much for everything, the great course plus all the info, also about D80!

Qianru Z 2015:

Stewart is a very professional photographer. I have attended five photography workshops taught by Stewart in Robert Gordon University and enjoyed it a lot. Stewart always makes workshop clear, precise. Through communication with Stewart, photography becomes more interesting for me!


Frank M 2014: Good morning Stewart,

Very many thanks indeed for all your input to a great weekend.  We both enjoyed ourselves, and I hope you did too.  I also learned a huge amount .... not least, how much I still have to learn!   It has also greatly boosted my enthusiasm, and now that I will (hopefully) have more time I hope to get out and about a bit more.


Brian T 2014: Stewart,

Many thanks for the Ullapool trip - all your guidance, help and instruction. Enjoyed it very much, learnt a great deal, and recalled some stuff I should probably have known. Thank you too for taking us to some brilliant locations. A sharp reminder to me of the beauty of the West Highlands.


Michael F 2014:Had a great one-to-one tutorial on using my new camera. Stewart was great (and very patient!) with me as I am very much at a beginner level. Look forward to putting your advice into practice. Thanks Stewart!


Sarah McA 2014 : Stewart wanted to say a bit thank you for coming in and running these really good photography classes.  I thoroughly enjoyed them and hope to never go back to automatic settings in my camera (just hope people have patience when posing for their picture).

Loved the photo challenge every week, it forced me to get out and take pictures and of things I would normal not think twice of.

Also the practical part of the class of actual using the camera helped me massively, until then I did not know how to change my ISO L


Sreeraj R 2014: Stewart

Thank you again for all the efforts and wonderful session followed by emails with video links.

I enjoyed the sessions and will definitely try out whatever I picked up. Better shots – hmmm let us see…


Giulia V 2014: Stewart,

Thank you very much for organising and running this photography class.

I found it extremely helpful and really enjoyed every part of it.

Hopefully there will be more opportunities in the future to take some photos together!


Dilyara I 2014: Hi Stewart,

Many thanks ! It has been pleasure to learn from you!


Ken W 2014: Hi Stewart. Thanks for a great day on seascapes and disclosing your favourite places. I had a great time. Regards Ken


Mike B 2014: Stewart I really enjoyed the workshop on Monday a beautiful day ending at the stunning Rattray Head Lighthouse, perfect. Thanks for the patience and tuition I learnt a great deal and look forward to putting this into practice and seeing the results in my images. Your Gallery is stunning especially the Scotland gallery you have shown through your photography what a beautiful country we live in.

Frank M 2014: Stewart, thanks for a great day out on Saturday.  The weather was rubbish, greatly limiting available options, but your enthusiasm and patience meant that we still learned a lot.  


Brian T 2014 : Good Evening Stewart,

Thank you for your email and pics.

Thank you too for a great day on Saturday. Enjoyed being out with you and Frank, and I learnt a great deal. Have spent a lot of time since trying to get to know my camera a bit better! Also have made a list of better, lighter wet weather gear!! Some research on a lighter Tripod!

Hope to do a further session ( on a sizzling May or Sept day ?).

Thank you,


Kristin H 2013: I just wanted to let you know that the picture successfully arrived and the person I bought it for loves it. Thanks again for being so helpful with all of the postal service hassle, and for the beautiful photograph.


Frank M 2014: Stewart, thanks for a great day out on Saturday. The weather was rubbish, greatly limiting available options, but your enthusiasm and patience meant that we still learned a lot.

Saeed S 2013: Thanks for the hard work and effort you put in delivering the sessions, I thoroughly enjoyed them and learned quite a lot about photography.

I wonder when are we going to have the level 2 course for the photography, is it next year ?


Ivan H 2013: I don’t want to go overboard with the gushing praise – but I got a lot out of the course.

Thank you for setting it up.

It’s a shame I missed the last 2 – but I have the notes

Now I have my new camera, I’m keen to get some use out of it.


Suzanne D 2013: Thank you Stewart! I so very much enjoyed the classes…and all the behind the scenes organization!  Your lessons introduced me to the ‘possible’ in photography…that I can take interesting / good photos with my own camera.  Taking special time out to learn how to use my new camera has prepared me well for capturing future special moments.  Thank you, thank you!


Jonathan W 2013: Great instructor and tuition, not to mention good feedback amongst the class members.


Luke B 2013: Thank you very much Frazer & Stewart for the excellent class! I enjoyed every session and learned a lot. I’m really appreciated the time you guys have put in to make this happen.


Gillian C 2013: Stewart,

Thank you ever so much for these classes I feel that a whole new world has been opened to me now I understand the technicalities of photography! I suspect I may spend many an hour now tinkering with my camera to get the right shot as well as fine tuning it post processing.

It was a thoroughly enjoyable course and it was great to see everyone get involved in the homework and see the differences in styles and perspectives – it really has made me change my way of thinking about images and what makes a good photo. Stewart your photos are inspirational – I now have a wealth of new locations to travel to and try to capture!



Oonagh W 2013: Thank you Stewart

It’s been a very insightful six weeks.  Looking forward to just getting out there with my camera and practicing.

You have such a great knowledge and passion for photography.  Thank you so much for sharing


Carla M 2013 : Stewart, I really enjoyed the classes! Very useful feedback, information on techniques and more that will help me to improve on my skills.


Samanatha W 2013 : Many thanks Stewart for organising and delivering a very useful course.  I really enjoyed it!


Mon S 2013: Many thanks to you. I thoroughly enjoyed 6 weeks of photography. Thanks for organising the event.

From just using camera at occasions, I am now constantly looking for subjects when I am out and about. I now carry my camera with me all the time.
