I met the criteria of “beginner” with little difficulty. Brand new to photography, and a first timer at anything close to a course like this, I was welcomed warmly by Gavin and even felt comfortable pulling out my “beginner” camera! Anyone wanting to learn the basic principles of capturing the beauty around us, needs to check out one of Gavin workshops. There were, quite obviously, experienced photographers there too, and I fully believe Gavin was able to add value to each individual. Note to beginners; you may get addicted and find yourself lingering in the camera section at every store after this! Thanks again Gavin, I’ll be back.
