Thanks to Olympus for an excellent event and to Robert and his crew for all their help during the day. A great way to learn. - David Smith

I just wanted to take this opportunity to say big thank you for a very enjoyable course, I found it thoroughly interesting as a beginner when it comes to properly lighting scenes and subjects as well as how you manage the workflow with insights into the way you manage post processing. I must admit I had no idea what to expect originally. The day was very good at giving me lots of ideas and things to work on in the future as well being as I said fun and enjoyable in the way it was presented. Also to give me more confidence in portrait work as well which I have needed to gain. It was good to meet everyone else in the course and see how they also approached the situation. Thank you again for your time and effort. I will drop you a separate email directly to discuss some of the questions I had for you, I promise there will not be too many. - Fraser Catlin
