    Genuine effort and passion shines bright in this training. I have been for two Training events so far and was hooked after the first one! Thank you Jason. You are a star! I am looking forward to the upcoming more creative sessions. After all, in my opinion, photography is all about 'creating' our reality :)

    Jason u made us realize that knowing the technical stuff does help. 'Figures' are always appreciated. What I enjoy most is the infectious spirit and the fun that exists in the room. I feed off it.

    Brilliant stuff. Loved the advise of practice.any times it so happens that people walk out and forget. Might also be a good idea to emphasize on the theory during the planned workshops. Kudos again.

  • Jason

    I know benches are not comfortable... but there are simple things you can do to make yourself comfortable...

    Always sit up straight... it will help your back... and will help you stay alert...

    I so wish we had bean bags... :)

    March 9, 2013

  • Jason

    Anyone coming from sharjah?

    March 9, 2013

  • Jason

    New comers, do your research well, leave early to find the location and try to be there early.

    Look around in the comments, there are people coming from all directions... they can offer you a lift...

    You can reach me on[masked], if you need directions, but please note my phone will be on silent from 6 30 pm onward. Preparation is key, because my phone gets busy before the start.

    Seats do get filled up fast. Chairs and a couch are up front but have limited space... the only way to get them is to come early...

    I promise i will control my pace, but be prepared to be drilled with information, numbers, diagrams... elementary maths, physics ( a bit) and geometry. Making this interesting is my problem... :)

    Try and get your coffee before the session. The breaks will be limited to 5 mins... "life is fun... but it is never easy" :)

    Please state in the comments below, before the day of the training day, your starting point on the day of the training, starting time and your telephone number.
