“Elle’s classes are great fun; she combines a mixture of technical photographic knowledge, insight into composition and image structure with practical exercises which break the theory into manageable chunks. The hands on examples are imaginative and constructive, I have been taking photographs for fifty years and I’ve learnt more in my classes with Eleanor than I would have believed possible!” David Little
