What Our Workshop Participants Say…

“Awesome workshop taken by two great guys, really knowledgeable, helpful and approachable. I learnt more about landscape photography in 8 hours spent with Sam and Mark than a whole year reading photography magazines. I would highly recommend attending any of their workshops as it is time and money well spent. Thanks again.” – Craig H

“I can’t think of a single thing which would improve the experience. I think the tutor/attendance ratio is perfect. I’ve been on trips where I was the only one and its too intensive with no time for experimenting. Too many people though and you don’t learn enough especially if you’re a quiet type. Thank you Sam and Mark.” – Laura H

“A great workshop by two great guys who are passionate about what they do. Thanks for an excellent weekend.” – Alex

“Thourghly enjoyable day. From my very basic start point I picked up loads of tips to make my enjoyment of photography move forward. The others on the workshop were good company, and ready to help me making it a great day.” – Richard

“Attending this course was a great experience, I found Mark and Sam great to work with and both were very helpful and knowledgable of the landscape and photography. The post processing workshop was very informative and enjoyable. I would be happy to recommend and attend a further course.” – Mark O

“I was an experienced, but not very expert digital photographer, my son thought it time I learned to use my expensive camera and gave me this course as a birthday present. He was so right with a focus on the essentials and gentle guidance from Mark and Sam my photography improved beyond measure. Wish I had done this years ago!” – Mike B

“I was a bit apprehensive before the course, would it be too technical or “nerdy”? for an absolute beginner. The friendly approach soon put me at ease. The information was easy to understand and was clearly explained. The group was the optimum size for that personal touch. This course has given me enough knowledge and the confidence to be able to really develop what I know. Will now be a pleasant and fulfilling hobby, thank you and keep up the good work” –  Barrie C

“Best christmas present I’ve ever had! loved every minute of session on saturday (even the weather). The photoshop and Lightroom session on Sunday was also well paced and will make me start using Lightroom. the course has made me enthusiastic about my DSLR camera after getting lazy with my phone camera. Will be coming back next year for the Malham day. Thanks Sam and Mark for a great day” –  Kevin N

“Very useful day – exactly what I had expected and hoped for. A fresh look at my photography. Thank you” – Malcolm J

“A very professional and exhilarating experience. A real eye opener to techniques for both in the field work and post production. The guys work really hard to ensure you get the best out of your day and assist you to look in very different and engaging ways at both the large vista and the macro. Mark and Sam have put a lot of worth while effort and planning into this 2 day workshop, and their enthusiasm to assist you through their professional world of photography, making things as simple or as deep an understanding as you need it to be is just great. The supportive literature has been well thought through, is interesting and varied, and has a respected and rightful place at the forefront of my much needed DSLR manuals. In 2 days I felt I had personally come on leaps and bounds, Mark and Sam have certainly created a workshop here that other professional photographers will find very hard to beat!! Thanks” – Robert D

“an absolutely outstanding day. Ive learned two or three specifics about photography that will have a lasting impact. Sam and Mark bring 1st rate professional experiences to the day, that will change the way anyone approaches taking photographs. The additional processing half day adds the ‘cherry’ to the cake. I was really happy with my results until I realised how a few seconds and mouse clicks could push them to a higher notch on the impact scale. Overall a great experience. Thanks” – Allan D
