Read What People Say About Fototripper

I spent an evening with Gavin while on Vancouver Island. It was well worth it. I am still a beginner when it comes to taking photographs. We discussed aperture, shutter speed, and ISO among many other things. He helped composed some pictures and what things to do to improve those compositions. He taught me and then had me teach him what I had learned. That helped solidify the information and he guided me as I taught him. I was not afraid to say ‘I don’t know’ when he asked questions, which he appreciated so he knew if I was grasping it. We took a lot of pictures and discussed them. He was patient and reassuring during the entire lesson. The entire evening was well worth it.

Bruce Chapple

Overall another excellent workshop taught by Gavin. We started by reviewing the basic concepts of HDR photography and then proceeded outside to to practice. Under Gavin’s supervision we took several sets of bracketed photos with our own cameras and then returned to our laptops to process the images using a couple different HDR software applications. The instruction was clear and specific to our cameras, computers and HDR software. The cost of the workshop was well worth it. Thanks Gavin for another great learning experience.
