I had a great time, it was informative and fun. I am currently doing my diploma of photography via correspondence and this workshop gave me the opportunity to have hands on experience with some of the modules i am learning. Would not hesitate to do this or any other course with venture photography again, loved it. (Craig Tonkin)

Attended the Natural Light Workshop on Saturday. What a fantastic day we all had. Seng’s method of teaching would suit any style of learner. Both informative and information rich and super practical experience with two great models. Would recommend to anyone wishing to expand their knowledge of camera techniques.
