This was an excellent hands on course. Gavin provided timely advice based on the individual’s level of experience. This beginner course provided the fundamentals of landscape photography in detail. Both Gavin and his partner were extremely patient with this participant who had camera gear that just was not co-operating on the day of the course. I am more than happy to recommend Gavin as a very knowledgeable and gifted instructor. It would be a privilege to take another of his courses. Advice to the wise be sure that camera gear is functioning and do not forget to take your sturdy tripod. Thanks Gavin

Another great session Gavin! Got to work immediately after I got home to anchor in the great work flow demo you gave us and to see what I could do with some of my past favourite shots. What an incredible difference! Definitely keen to take that upcoming print course now that I can tune some of my shots to a level I would be proud to display anywhere. Cheers! Sean
