REVIEWS
The bad weather was the only thing that put a damper on the class. We went to a coffee shop and Daniel had a chat with us about the settings to use for landscape photography. We did get time after the rain stopped to take a few photos. Unfortunately some people had to leave but Daniel hung on and who ever wanted to take photos he was on hand for advice.

This was intended to be an outdoor event. Unf3the rain had other ideas so Daniel improvised and held the session in a coffee shop. He's a great teacher, patient, friendly and very relaxed. I learnt so much today.

Really enjoyed the event. Daniel was excellent at explaining everything with clear and concise instructions of what he needed us to do. Took his time to assist everyone on an individual basis. Would certainly recommend.
