Just wanted to drop a line, to Thank Peter & Wayne for a brilliant course yesterday LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHY COURSES - PART 1 @ Tynesfield, Bristol. I really enjoyed the well structured Course, they both made it very easy to follow and asking questions was not a problem at all. We were all made very welcome and given a full understanding of what is required or what makes a good picture, how to get into position etc, even the weather was kind to us and was a fun filled day. When out and about taking pictures they kept check on us, making sure we were ok and giving us new ideas to try out. After todays course I have found a new confidence in using my tripod, remote control and Filters of which I hadn't used before, so looking forward to putting all of these into practice and the tips that were advised. I have previously done DSLR/Compact System Camera Part 1 & 2 with Allan Frost and learnt lots, would fully recommend these courses to others and look forward to doing more courses with your group. I am now looking at the other courses available, and can't wait to book them. Michelle McKenna
Thank you for a really inspiring and enjoyable day today. I learned so much from what seemed to be a standing start but I realise how much I have to learn! I had been on a Level 1 introductory earlier this year and it was all theory - the practical aspects of this course made a huge difference. Once I am more familiar with my camera I'll book one of the more advanced courses so hope to see you again in the future.
This course exceeded expectation with it's blend of theory and practical delivered by a man who is so passionate about the subject matter that he crosses the borderline into obsession. But wow does it pay off. Big time. Keith's images are breathtakingly beautiful. His knowledge of the subject beyond the pale. His enthusiasm infectious. His willingness to pass his knowledge on a gift. This workshop should be high on anyone's list as the principles of composition and depth of field are invaluable to all photographic genre, not just landscapes.
I'd like to thank you for making the two photography courses which ran last weekend at Chirk and Erddig so enjoyable. I looked through all the pictures I'd taken when I got home and can honestly say that they included some of the best photographs I've ever taken! My enthusiasm has been rekindled, I've even put my EOS 20D up for sale and have bought a 40D (which I'd been toying with anyway).
Just a quick note to thank you and Andy for a lovely day on Saturday. It's a rare treat for me to get out with my camera, and I did enjoy the company and the opportunity to practice some landscape photography. I also thought the course was very well structured as well as being friendly and relaxing. It was a good reminder of many of the things I have forgotten and how much I still have to learn, but I will be as proactive as possible in the coming months to educate myself and try new things. Please let me know if you will be running any advanced courses, and of course I will look forward to seeing you at the Petworth House event.
