"Wow what an amazing experience,  I communicated with Paula via the website and email and I almost immediately feel relaxed, Paula was able to recommend accommodation near to the studio's.  So I arrived on the Sunday night. In the morning I was a little nervous as I did not know what to expect. Within moments Gary and Paula made me feel welcome despite being an hour early. The course was relaxed but professional. Gary was such a great guy he made the learning interesting and exciting. If you want to take that step on to becoming a professional photographer then Look no further. This is a true 5 Star experience right here.  Plenty of refreshments and an amazing venue. Hazlewood Castle and the model were brilliant and professional.   

Thank you Johnny & Chloe as well as the others"
Paul Streeter.

"WOW!!! What a fantastic course. I have just completed the 5 day wedding course with Gary and Paula at Shoot Smart. The amount of information shared with us was amazing. This really is the only course you will need to improve your wedding photography skills. The course is worth every penny, you will not be disappointed.
Gary’s easy manner, and the amusing way he delivers the course material is very inspiring. Paula’s input as the second shooter and assistant is also invaluable. Also Paula’s lunches are a real treat. What a fantastic team.
 

Thank you both for a wonderful week"
Keith Deamer.

"Attended the 5 day wedding and portrait course last week - amazing!!
I've been using a DSLR for many years however, learnt some really cool stuff & much needed back to basics!
Gary's style of training is fantastic! Makes it fun & easy to understand & Paula was great too! Oh, & not to forget the lovely & plentiful lunches! 🙂

Getting ready to book my next course"
Jags.

"I've just finished the wedding/portrait course with Gary and Paula at Shootsmart, and have been delighted with the results.

We were presented with a huge amount of information in a short time, but the way in which Gary delivers it makes it easy to understand and - more importantly - put into practice.  

Everyone on the course benefited from Gary and Paula's extensive knowledge, patience and tireless enthusiasm for photography.  A great venue, relaxed atmosphere, warm hospitality, plus some professional-looking shots by the end of the week - perfect.  

Will definitely be back for more"
John Newbury.

"I did both the Love Your SLR (15th March) and the 5 Day Wedding/Portrait Course (2nd - 5th March) and both were excellent. I bought my camera sometime last year and pretty much never used it as I didn't really know what I was doing. I'd read a couple of books in the past but nothing beats hand on experience and Gary give you that experience in droves.

From photographing items such as shoes, flowers, wedding dresses etc, to people in poses in a mock wedding at Ripley Castle (North Yorkshire), to people in a studio, to off camera flash location shoots around Elland, to using and understanding light meters, The list goes on and on.

I had a fantastic time at shootsmart and I would like to thank Gary and his wife Paula who kept us well fed and everything running to schedule, And Kelly who is their assistant/stand in model.

I can't recommend them highly enough."
William Callister

"I have just completed the 5 day wedding & portrait course run by Gary Gough and his wife Paula. I have been looking for a course such as this since being made redundant last year and to kick start my new career in wedding & portrait photography. I came across ShootSmart Photography Training, and after reading all the reviews decided to book the full 5 days (3 days wedding plus 2 days portrait). From walking in the studio on Monday morning to leaving on Friday evening, I enjoyed every bit and more. I have been a serious amateur for a few years and needed to fill in any gaps that I had in my technical ability, this course ticked all the boxes for me. You can read all the books and watch all the video's, but nothing beats hands on experience taught by a true professional photographer. Gary's method of teaching is relaxed, imparting years of experience in an easy to understand way. I now have a full understanding of studio flash ratio's and how to use my light meter the correct way. Gary's wife Paula kept things ticking along all week, and also kept the course members fed and watered.....A true family run course, which I would highly recommend to for anyone looking to improve their photography skills. If your looking for a photography course, look no further than ShootSmart Photography, you will not be disappointed."

Colin Sutcliffe

"I attended the 5 day wedding/portrait course in September and it was excellent. Gary is very good at getting his knowledge across, that along with his patience and sense of humor and linked with Paula's organisation skills and warmth, it made for a brilliant week which I thoroughly enjoyed.
I have learnt so many new skills including flash, posing, ambient lighting, timing, business management etc and also how to smile a bit more!
One tip I could give to anyone thinking about or attending one of ShootSmart's courses is to make as many notes as you can along the way as the knowledge I gained was immense.
Many many thanks to Gary and Paula, I couldn't recommend these guys more!"

""I recently completed the 5 day wedding course run by Gary and Paula, the experience from start to finish was superb, and very professionally run. The tution given was done in such a way that everyone in the group was relaxed and this enabled everyone to learn with ease. The course content was structured in a way that both experianced and beginners could learn together without any problems. The wedding venue of Hazelwood castle was the icing on the cake. I can recommend this course to anyone out there wanting to get into the photography business, as it not only covers the photography aspect but the business and processing sides. As a direct result of the course i have 4 wedding bookings already over the next 6 months. THANKS Gary, Paula and the rest of team""

"Just completed the 5 day course and loved every minute of it, this couple ooze inspiration, so being a complete beginner on the technical side of photography I came away with a wealth of knowledge and buzzing with inspiration, Gary and Paula couldn't have crammed anymore information into five days and couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating, I am now hoping to book the five day landscape course, I honestly can't believe how far I have come and delighted I stumbled across this training course to explore my passion for photography"

"Just returned from 5 Day Wedding and Portrait Workshop, run by Gary and Paula Gough, at Shootsmart. The atmosphere was relaxed, and the information was presented in a light hearted manner, with plenty of jokes and stories from Gary and Paula, which helped get the information across.One day was a mock wedding, held at the lovely Hazelwood Castle, with two lovely models, and plenty of posing and setup advice, and I've come away with some fantastic pictures, which if they hadn't come off my card I would never have believed they were mine.Other days were spent in the studio, outside with off camera flash and some amazing Photoshop sessions.I've come away with a lot more knowledge, and look forward to attending other courses. Definitely recommend the courses if you want to do more than point and shoot with your camera"
