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
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
This course was excellent. Gavin provided detailed information on the technical aspects of beginning landscape photography, covering exposure, focus and other details. Gavin was adept at explaining the basics and provided excellent individual attention. His discussion of composition and photographic expression was also excellent, especially for a beginning course. I would very highly recommend this or similar course. It was illuminating even in the rain.
I travelled the 2 hours from Sidney for this workshop and yes, it’s a fantastic course which I highly recommend. Gavin is an excellent teacher and he gave generously of his experience and skills to everyone on the course. I learned several technical skills which I am very grateful for and which I believe will move me forward in the direction I wish to take my photography. Thank you Gavin, you are a real asset to the development of serious photography in this area and I will say so at every opportunity. Best. John McConnell. ( member of the Victoria Camera club)
