    Last year I went to Tromsø with Matt for a northern lights photography tour. While patiently waiting for the lights, we visited many great locations to practice the skills required to capture them. I learnt so many post-production tricks that I know I will use to better my photography in the future. This was mainly due to Matt's endless patience in answering my questions and his commitment to making sure I learnt as much as I could. His skills are evident when he answers any photography related question and as a result, I'd recommend the trip to anyone wanting to improve their photography skills! It was truly wonderful, thank you.

    Matthew has a very calm, easy to understand way of teaching, and gives you advice, one step at the time. He does this without forcing you to do things a certain way and is also truely interested what you want to accomplish as a photographer. Matthew made great use of any spare time during the tour, teaching 1-to-1 post-production editing. Also his post-tour support for editing pictures is simply amazing and I think its likely that I will try one of his other landscape photography courses in the future. Thank you!

    Gerben Ganzevles Review

    I joined Matthew Storer in Tromso, with the hopes of capturing the nothern lights. I had basic photography knowledge about shutter speed, aperture and ISO settings. With 4-5 years experience of ''holiday shots'' never thought I would be able to capture night image. However, After Matthew's teachings I was able to capture some images I have always wanted!

    Matthew was a great teacher and gave me a lot of information to take home and learn. Thank you very much!
