“ This was an excellent evening - we covered a lot of ground and David is a great teacher. He started with the basics and then, leading us through lots of practical exercises to illustrate points, built on these basics in a way that was both logical and intuitive. I've always shied away from using flash, but by the end of this evening I felt I had a good grasp of the use of flash lighting and the possibilities it offers. I also appreciated the notes to take away. Thank you, David - I will definitely sign up for some more of your sessions while I'm in town! ”

“ Nice, relaxing way to improve one's photographic skills with a photographer who has the skills and patience to help people with their photography, regardless of where they're at with it. He really figured out what was most useful to tell me, given the knowledge I already have/ don't have, but didn't overload me with too much info. Really got a lot out of my first meetup with David and hope to atttend more. ”

“ I've attended three of David's workshops and have learnt so much from all three. The flash lighting I & II were fantastic in that the concepts are introduced and then applied straight away in practical exercises. I had only just bought my speed light but David explained everything so well that I am now much more confident in my new skills.! I also attended the daylight portraits by natural light and David's explanations of looking for light, composition and framing are great. All in all, David is a patient teacher and explains concepts really well and then puts them straight into practice. Great value for money. ”

“ David runs a very informative evening answers all questions clearly I enjoyed the fact the group was kept to max of 4 attendees. David understands the topic and conveys it to each student with lots of patience. I was lucky enough to use one of David's spare speedlites on the night as I have not purchased one as yet, know I can purchase with confidence. I would recommend this course to anyone wanting to discover the correct procedures for flash photography. regards John ”

“ Absolutely excellent! David reads up on everyone's flashes beforehand so no stone is left unturned. He is a fantastic teacher - I didn't think so many things could 'click' with regards to understanding flash and lighting in just two hours - and he goes the extra mile (I had the unbelievable luck of my speedlight actually breaking at the hot shoe at the very beginning of the class: David luckily had the spare and even did research after the workshop as to how I could go about fixing it / getting a replacement part). Many thanks, I will definitely be signing up for another of his workshops very soon. ”
— Michelle M. on Oct 16, 2014.

“ Well structured evening, the exercises were ideal to come to grips with how the mix of ambient and flash light affects the outcome. Learned heaps, discovered some functions I never knew existed and put them into practice. If you're on the fence about going to this workshop - do it! you'll find it cash well spent. ”
