The event was good and I liked the informal approach to teaching and learning. Questions through conversations gave a clarity to some things you wanted to know but didn't know how to ask.

This was so good. I learned so much and tried things I hadn't before - like photographing in manual mode, which turned out a lot less scary than I imagined. I am really pleased I went It was a lovely friendly grouo. Great teacher in Martin, as he builds confidence and keeps it moving forward throughout. He really does make it fun and goes the extra mile.
