I attended the private winter Slovenia tour. I didn't need a photography teacher but wanted a local guide that... understands the needs of landscape photography, hence the choice of a photography tour. I am very glad I choice Matthew. He was punctual and patient (we drove to the same locations several times during the short tour as per my request). The tour was organized perfectly. Will definitely think on taking future tours with him.read more

I joined Matthew Storer and Maurice van den Boogaard in December 2019 to Tromso, Norway. With the hopes of capturing... the nothern lights for myself.I had basic photography knowlegde about shutterspeed, aperture ISO settings and 4-5 years experience with ''average holliday shots'' with occesionaly a picture that I might really like. So, I borrowed a tripod, got myself a wide-angle F2.8 lens and for the first time put the camara in manual. Matthew has a very calm, easy to understand way of teaching, and gives you advice, one step at the time for the current situation. 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. I must admit, that due to the short-daylight hours, freezing temperatures and ofcourse waiting for the best northern light conditions. (And dispite the extra Sami experience) There are a few dull afternoons/evenings, Matthew Storer made great use of this time, to teach the basics of post-production edditing. So no time wasted there and one very large bonus.Also his post-tour support for eddition 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!read more

Last December I went to Tromsø with Matt and Surviking for a low-light photography tour, hoping to catch the northern... lights. While patiently waiting for the lights, we visited many great locations to practice the skills required to capture them, and then spent some time learning more about post-production to get the most out of our images. 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 in such a short period of time. 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 night photography skills (you might even see the northern lights on the way)! It was truly wonderful, thank you.read more

I attended the Northern Lights tour to Tromso last December. 7 years ago I did a basic photography course, so I already... knew a few things about photography. But this was a special trip for shooting in low light. I have learned a lot. How do I use the ISO, the aperture, shutter speed and how do I determine the best composition. But also a lot about post-processing (the magic word of the tour😄). Matthew was a great teacher and gave me a lot of information to take home and learn. Thank you very much!read more

Having attended one of Matthew’s photography tours in Slovenia, I can’t recommend them highly enough. Throughout... the tour, Matthew was very professional and patient, a great teacher with a lot of knowledge and a passion for teaching. With the knowledge and experience gained through the tour, the change within my own photography has been massive, which will be beneficial going forward. As for the locations visited on the tour, each location was stunning and not only provide many different images but also shows just how incredible Slovenia really is. Even the accommodation that Matthew provided during the tour was superb and couldn’t have asked for anywhere better. Overall an amazing experience and worth all the 5 stars and more.I certainly aim to join Matthew on another tour in the future!read more

Private landscape tutorial was really amazing. Learned a lot of new things out in the field. Starting by how to prepare... for an adventure, how to select your destinations for good images, actual composition and technical advice while taking images - all these aspects gathered me some nice images to take away from the workshop.read more
