Chris Gorman Drone Tutor

I found the course very helpful. It was just what I was looking for as an introduction to the concepts of drone photography. I think Chris Gorman is an excellent tutor – he explained things well without talking down to participants like me who came to the course knowing relatively little about the subject. I very much appreciated the hints and tips Chris provided.

Royal Photographic Society Participant.

Spent 4 hours with Chris and learnt so much! Flying all sorts of the latest drones from DJI and talking lots about photography and how to step up your ‘drone game.
