Katryn Jones - Skomer Island July 2012

We had thought and talked about going to Skomer for years - and now, thanks to a very generous gift organised by our newly weds Megan and Robin, we have finally fulfilled our goal. The visit lived up to all of our expectations : unexpectedly good weather, posing puffins, good company and excellent photographic tuition! Having guaranteed places on the boat to Skomer, and not having to get up at silly o’clock, was a huge additional bonus!!

Andy’s photographic tuition was excellent. He had the added difficulty of having to pitch his teaching for a wide range of abilities from extremely experienced photographers, to people like me (Kat) whose technical knowledge extends mainly to the "auto" button! Andy was extremely patient … and it was a good thing I took my camera manuals!!

There is something to see and photograph round every corner on the island, and the day was very well organised to offer all members of the group the best opportunities to get the shots they wanted.



The puffins are amazing, obviously they have all attended RADA!! And it is impossible to look at the photographs without adding captions. The variety of wildlife on the island is stunning, and you need to keep your eyes open at all times. Having advice as to what to look out for, makes such a difference.

Sadly, well focussed flying puffins, and fish filled beaks were beyond me on this trip … though I had a couple of near misses … maybe next time!! My finished photographs don’t do Andy’s tuition justice, but I had a wonderful time … and I can’t wait to come back and have another go at it …. I will try and practise using some more functions on my camera before I come again.

Thank you Andy.

Meirion and Katryn Jones
