This was my first photography workshop and I couldn’t ask for a better experience. Gavin was personable, enthusiastic and very helpful. We had photographers of every level and he spent time with each of us helping with whatever was needed. His lessons on focusing and composition were invaluable. We had post-processing sessions everyday to help us take our images from that day from OK to WOW. Thanks Gavin!

Fantastic as always! I had a great time and really appreciated the patience Gavin showed as we worked through our compositional and technical challenges. I would definitely take another Fotitripper course. Oh wait… I already did. See my Oregon trip review soon. Spoiler alert. I thought it was great too. Just a lot less dry than Moab! Cheers

Thanks Gavin! Great Instruction. Information was clear and easily understood, with a great relaxed atmosphere. Lots of encouragement with suggestions to further excellence. Really appreciated the tailoring of information with one on one instruction to all skill levels. Even if you are familiar with your camera and the technical settings there is still something for you.

Gavin provided a lot of information about taking HDR shots. We worked through several examples and I gained a much greater understanding of when HDR should be used. I’m looking forward to trying the techniques we covered. Thanks for the seminar, it’s highly recommended. Jack

I really enjoyed the workshop and found you to be an excellent teacher. It is unusual to find a teacher who is both fun and manages to impart the knowledge is such a good way. I learned a lot from this workshop and look forward to taking more workshops from you

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

Hi Gavin – I have to say how much I enjoyed the workshop on Image Post Processing. I came away feeling much more confident and ready to tackle Photoshop head on. You are a terrific teacher with so much knowledge to share. I’d write more but I’m now going to open Photoshop to work at remembering all I learned yesterday!!! Look forward to much more participation in the future. Thanks for everything. Shelley H.

Gavin provides a lot of excellent instruction on how to get the best results from HDR Photography. As a novice photographer, I was able to grasp his concepts easily and process my images to produce photos that looked lifelike. A great method for landscape photography when you are having to shoot under conditions that may otherwise result in a poor overall picture. Thanks, Ken

Last Saturday Gavin held a Landscapes workshop in Bowen Park in Nanaimo. The workshop was intended for beginners and not so beginners, it was a good mix. Gavin’s knowledge, patience, enthusiasm and willing to help one by one to obtain superb photos made this workshop highly recommend, I am very pleased with the results, finally I will have good use of all the functions and settings in my camera! Thanks again! Ozzie
