'He created a lovely relaxed atmosphere in the group, in which we could all learn how to improve our photography. He took us to some lovely places where we could get some great photos & paced the holiday well. We never felt rushed or bored. His evening critiques of our work were most helpful, & his film shows fascinating. We came away having learnt a lot whilst enjoying a lovely friendly holiday.'
