Below are just a few testimonials from some of the people who I've had the pleasure of teaching. Please feel free to read them and if you've attended any of my workshops and would like to add one I would greatly appreciate it.
“Our team had the privilege of taking a photography class with Adam as a team building activity. From the very first planning call to throughout the actual day of experience, Adam was excellent to work with. His passion for photography and skillful way of teaching, contributed tremendously to an incredible day of learning the fundamentals of photography and practicing it on our own in downtown San Francisco. Each member on our team walked away with a new skill set that could be applied at work but also in our day-to-day lives! Thank you Adam for a unique and very fun experience!”

“I have had several sessions of photography tuition with Adam Jacobs and he has been consistently brilliant as a tutor. He knows his subject so deeply that all his explanations are incredibly clear, with none of the obscure jargon that some photographers love to use. He is extremely patient and makes sure that his students do the work so that they are confident of understanding all that he has explained. Adam is experienced in a whole range of photographic disciplines too, which feeds into his knowledge – including sports, food, portraiture, corporate, fashion and landscape, to name just a few. He can bring prepared course notes – useful for bigger groups - but also tailors tuition to specific needs. He offers advice on photographic kit too and follows up with links to useful websites. And to cap it all, he has great stories about the work he has done! I would recommend him unreservedly.”

I’d been keen to re-kindle my interest in photography for some time when I was gifted a private lesson with Adam. I had no idea at the time that it was going to take place remotely. I was a little uncertain as to how it would work. In fact, to be honest, I was doubtful. However as it turned out, I couldn’t have been more wrong! Adam is a really excellent teacher - both enthusiastic and inspirational. I’ve now had a handful of lessons which have all been really impressive and my photography has come on leaps and bounds; I couldn’t believe after my most recent lesson that it had lasted three hours without a break! The whole experience has been outstanding and I can’t recommend Adam highly enough.

"It has been a great experience to meet Adam and I have learned a few of his personal techniques that will improve my photography. He is a very knowledgeable teacher, thorough with his explanations and extremely patient…He makes you feel comfortable asking questions, explains things very simply and makes difficult concepts seem really easy."
Paul, Clifford Chance.
Adam puts you at ease and within a few minutes of the first lesson I was hooked. Each step was fully explained in a way that is easily understood and you quickly realise the camera isn’t as complicated as you first thought. The photo outings were great and put what you had learned into practice and the results were amazing...I would recommend his workshops to anyone of any ability or model of camera they use without hesitation”

“I learnt more in two hours than I had through countless hours online and reading through photography books. One on one time with a seasoned professional meant I picked up some great tricks and I’ve already booked my next class. Highly recommended.”

“Just to say how much I enjoyed today's class, the hour flew by, and some of the information must have sunk in as I found myself looking at things from a photographer's perspective when I headed back to the office!”

"I really enjoyed the workshop that I attended. Adam has got such a nice nature and he gives you encouragement to try different things. He has a great teaching style, creating a relaxed and fun environment. The classes were pitched at the right levels with a good mix of theory and practical making it easy to learn new skills. "

“Brilliant course – I now understand the fundamentals of photography and finally know how to use my camera properly. By the end of the course I was taking photos on the manual setting. Adam is a great teacher – would thoroughly recommend the course.”
