THE SUNSHINE STORE
at the Pin Mill Studio
Really lovely gifts, homeware and accessories (and ice cream, fresh coffee, teas, hot chocolate and homemade cakes). With cosy tables inside and stunning views from our outside terrace.
I would like to say just how much I enjoyed my session with you at your Pin Mill studios last week. I found your relaxed yet hugely competent and informative approach to the complicated subject of cameras, composition and photography in general created an ideal atmosphere for learning
Just wanted to say thank you very much for such an enjoyable and constructive day last Friday. I was not quite sure what my daughters had signed me up for but the day exceeded all my expectations!
I really appreciated your patience and kindness, having always been shy to ask questions which I thought would sound silly. I feel I have got to know my camera better. You have given me confidence to be more adventurous and inspired me with your amazing work. I will highly recommend you.
I just wanted to thank you for a fascinating course last Sunday. It was so helpful to be able to speak to an expert and I'll be able to put what I learned to good use. The personal touch is something that no book can ever give and that is the true value of courses such as yours.
WHY VISIT PIN MILL
In an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty
Pin Mil is a beautiful riverside hamlet nestling on the banks of the Orwell, about 20 minutes drive from Ipswich or half an hour from Colchester
An unchanged landscape
Walk, sail, wander, paint, take photos, paddle in the stream or picnic. This beauty spot has been a bustling little harbour for centuries and has changed very little

The famous Butt is right next door to us, with its wide selection of real ales, fine wines and fresh seafood. The Arthur Ransome Walking Trail is a lovely riverside walk from our doorstep following the route of the children's classic We Didn't Mean to Go To Sea
