“Many thanks again to you and your staff for an excellent day yesterday. I thought the organisation and content were outstanding, and I thoroughly enjoyed my day out. Still looking forward to seeing what I have got on my memory cards. Lots of work ahead!”   V.P. (Benenden)

“Thank you so much for the workshop. It was really well organised, you really did think of everything, down to continuous refreshments, to total guidance and advice on the photography. It was also brilliant the way you got the sun to shine! Looking forward to the next one, so shall be saving for a more professional camera ! ” Mrs Denise Mulholland (Beckley)

“Hi David, Just a quick note to say thanks for a very informative and most inspiring day.”  Gary Browne (photographer for the kent Messenger Group)
