Utterly fantastic!!! Any question you had about any aspect of photography Graeme and Christian could answer!!! if you didn’t quite understand they would take as much time as needed to help you understand!!! I went from shooting in very very very little manual to full manual! I now understand what each part of the manual settings does and how to change it to suit my style! I will be attending the next workshop for sure! and I recommend to everyone to do it!!!! it has taken my photography to the next level and they have helped me to achieve my long-time photography goal!! Thank you so much for your patience and knowledge Christian and Graeme! (Ashlea Bluett)

Just wanted to send a big thank you for making yesterday’s natural light workshop such a fantastic experience.I was quite nervous thinking that I would never be able to understand things in an afternoon, but you all explained it so simply (and helped where needed), that I feel confident to now take that knowledge when I’m out practicing.
