St Kilda photo workshop group

"From start to finish the organisation and the approach towards the group was superb. You appear to take great care in ensuring that those who you rely on to provide a service alongside you also take the customer's needs/comfort as paramount. The professionalism of Derek, Niki and Harry could not be faulted. They really did enhance the whole trip and quite clearly enjoyed being part of it.

"The quality of the tuition was absolutely perfect. You pitched the course in a manner that catered for everyone's needs. The dynamic between the two of you immediately set a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere which developed on many occasions into amusing and, at times hilarious, banter. This became infectious throughout the group.

"Prior to the course I'd had some concerns that my rudimentary photographic knowledge and experience may put me at a disadvantage and that perhaps I would feel awkward when asking simple or perhaps mundane questions. There was in reality never an issue with this, and I felt that any questions were answered with respect and in a manner that was easy to understand.

"I came away from St. Kilda having experienced some of the very best days of my life. For that I will always be very grateful to you for providing a truly unique opportunity for photographic enthusiasts. Your enthusiasm and professionalism was obvious and the support you so readily gave has certainly provided me with a renewed passion for photography."
