"More enlightened and capable"

24/05/2021
Morning Chris,

I just wanted to say thanks a million for a fantastic couple of days. I really enjoyed the workshop experience, the tuition, welcoming hospitality and the great food, but most of all, a really good time.

You took me to some cracking locations and gave just the right amount of guidance when needed. I have been on courses where the leader might have well been taking the picture themselves ('do this', 'do that') but your style is very comfortable and it was easy for me to understand what you were looking to achieve. I don’t think I will ever shoot in more challenging conditions but I have learned a huge amount. Not only about techniques but also composition and how to get the best from the coastal conditions.

Thanks to you and Sam for welcoming me into your lovely home and for the five star treatment. Your B&B/residential concept works really well and I felt totally relaxed and very much at home.

The time in the studio was invaluable and my working knowledge of Photoshop has increased immeasurably. Some really top notch advice on how to refine a photograph without impacting on its integrity.

You have a real talent Chris and a passion for what you do. You clearly love the Cornish coast and the enthusiasm you have for it can only rub off on people like me.

I'm looking forward to processing more of my images over the next few days and will send you some. Overall, I feel I am a much more enlightened and capable photographer than the one I was when I turned up on Wednesday. I will definitely be back in the winter to shoot seascapes in totally different conditions.

So thanks again for a great workshop and I will catch up with you again soon.

Cheers

Garry
