Customer Feedback - Anglesey / Snowdonia Holiday Nov 2015


Well first of all I want to thank the self – named ‘Hamer’s Beaumaris 6’ (!) for being such a great group to work with during the recent week long Anglesey and Snowdonia holiday. It’s always a pleasure when such a lovely group of people comes together and makes running the week so much easier. A particular mention for our doggy friend Mabel who was lovely and amazingly well behaved!
We had a super time, despite the weather being a tad difficult for the last two days and I know that they all thoroughly enjoyed themselves and got a lot from it. See some of their customer feedback below.
Also one or two of my pictures from the week – it’s amazing how moody the Menai Straits can look in poor weather – including a couple from our fireworks shoot which was great fun and will now be a regular feature of this yearly holiday. Also a scan of the thank you card they gave me at the end – thanks folks

“I wanted to write and thank you for running the fabulous Landscape photography course in North Wales last week. You are a natural people person, a great photographer and an excellent teacher. The combination of these three enabled me to learn a great deal and have fun at the same time. Everything ran smoothly ……… the content of the course was perfect, the accommodation and food were also fantastic. I would also add that in terms of cost the course represented great value for money. Once again, many thanks.” David

“I would just like to say a big thank you to you for a wonderful week of photography. I have been on several photography workshops and holidays over the past few years with a number of good photographers, but I can honestly say that I have never learned as much as I did this week. The difference being that you are a good teacher as well as a good photographer and therefore able to help photographers to learn skills in a relaxed way. I will digest what I have learnt and certainly be back for more!!” Judy

“I would like to start by saying thanks again for the great workshop. It was excellent – thanks to your clear teaching – and mnemonic – I now have a clear strategy and approach for going out to capture landscape images, and for processing them afterwards (no more Photoshop-phobia!) - just need to get out there practising! It was a really good week – the locations were lovely, the group was great, the accommodation was comfortable and the tuition was excellent.” Jan

“I had a great time on the 7 day workshop based on Anglesey last week. I found it easy to learn and improve with the structure of each session and your easy teaching style. You enabled us all to progress in very difficult weather conditions and showed us many different types of location and landscape opportunities and a few new techniques. I really like the abstract nature of the Intentional Camera Movement images. I appreciated the Crib sheet, tips and Photoshop manual. You showed amazing patience trying to teach Photoshop on so many different computer systems and versions of Photoshop at the same time. That was truly heroic.” Lyn

“Thank you so much for a great week despite the weather in the second half. Your teaching was really helpful and I think I have learnt a great deal that now I can start to practise. It is a real talent to be able to explain things several times without making (me) feel an idiot!! I am looking around at the local landscape with composition in mind and plan a trip to …………. as soon as the weather allows. There were several penny dropping moments like the discovery of the difference between what you see on ‘live view’ and what you see through a viewfinder. Actually discovering the live view was also a revelation as previous camera always made you go through the menu and consequently I didn’t. I think I would really like to book a workshop with you again sometime soon. It was great fun.
Also liked the hotel and they posted a parcel that arrived late for me so top marks to them too! Very best wishes, Lynne.”
