Having done a few workshops with Melvin in the last few years, I was keen to try a new location. I settled on Harris and Lewis. The accommodation for this workshop was superb and established a great base on Lewis. Despite challenging conditions at times during the week Melvin got us to some terrific shooting locations, his extensive knowledge of the Islands very apparent. Indeed, adverse weather conditions resulted in cancellation of our ferry and I was appreciative of Melvin’s coordination en route to move us seamlessly to an earlier ferry. Where weather conditions were poor, Melvin’s editing sessions were very helpful and provided new learnings to apply to my image editing.
Melvin was on hand at each shooting location and provided assistance on techniques and composition, which was welcome.
In summary, a hugely enjoyable workshop in a stunning location, which brought a great deal of personal learning too. Excellent.

Just returned from a wonderful trip to the Lofoten Islands with Melvin Nicholson. I managed to get my arrival times a bit mixed up, but Melvin was kind enough to pick me up ahead of schedule, and recommended a restaurant for me to eat and wait for him. We stayed in a large 7 bedroom house which was conveniently located to all the best photography spots. Poor Melvin was still suffering with a chest infection but still managed to drive our group around the island, provide us with expert advice on how to capture the sights in camera, and to stay in good humour! When there was a break in the weather, we managed to see and photograph the Northern Lights. I have to say that Lofoten is simply stunning and I would love to return to explore the rest of the islands. Thank you again Melvin for looking after us.

I went to Lewis and Harris for nearly a week with Melvin . My photography has improved quite significantly as a result. The knock on effect was for me to buy a better camera, a Sony A7, to keep pace with my own skill improvement!

Melvin is passionate about photography which is infectious but he always has time to help and teach to those like me. The group was great and has continued after the workshop. Melvin had a part to play in this as well.

Booked onto his one day Salford Quays workshop straight away and learned more again.
Have now booked with Melvin for Lofoten in 2023.

He has a lot of repeat customers which speaks for itself

This was my 4th trip with Melvin Nicholson, which says something! Melvin guides you through all the logistics pre travel. Then the days of the workshop are packed with locations. Melvin can’t control the weather but he does minimise it’s consequences, making sure you get a memory card full of images to take home. This trip is real value for money, the accommodation is warm, cosy and rustic. Being in a house has real benefits allowing everyone mix easily sharing their knowledge and experiences at the end of the days shooting. Melvin is full of advise and information and very knowledgable about the area.

I would go again.

This was my first Photography Workshop with Melvin. The accommodation used was well placed for all the locations we visited and the itinerary well thought out and flexible if the need arose. Detailed tuition was available when needed, and Melvin took the time one evening to show me his processing workflow with one of my images. This was invaluable, as was the demonstration of a different filter system which I now use. Excellent workshop!

This workshop to Northumberland was my second visit to this part of the country and having Melvin's experience I was able to get my better photographs than I did when I visited on my own.
Melvin has his own unique style and his enthusiasm never waned despite the weather not playing ball at sunrise or sunset, until the very last day when we were blessed by a magnificent sunrise at Bamburgh Castle.
Melvin gave me the confidence and knowledge to switch from always using Aperture Priority to going Full Manual among many other snippets of advice during the workshop.
All in All a very enjoyable experience and look forward to Iceland next year with Melvin and maybe something before that.

I have been on various photography workshops with different leaders, and Melvin ranks as one of the best! Although the weather was (typically) wet Melvin's intimate knowledge of the area meant that he could adapt the programme to find locations that were best suited to the conditions. The accommodation he arranged was a top-class self catering house which was spacious and very well provisioned. It was ideal for relaxing and allowed us flexibility for catering when we didn't feel like eating out in the evenings.
I would certainly recommend Melvin, and will be looking to book future workshops with him.

Fantastic workshop. Fantastic Workshop Leader. Highly Recommended.
Melvin took excellent care of all his clients, starting with fantastic accommodation, a planned itinerary, comfortable transport, complete with snacks and hot drinks. Melvin was the perfect host!
Looking forward to my next two trips with Melvin!

I have just returned from a wonderful workshop to Southern Iceland with Melvin and group. Even though I’ve been home nearly a week, I have still have the sense of excitement when I see my photographs. Melvin took us to the most beautiful places and we stopped for photo opportunities, which added to the excitement of the day. I feel that I have learnt so much in 5 days, (I am a beginner) and Melvin helped me out when I had technical difficulties, by lending me a camera, which was a wonderful gesture. The trip, Melvin’s warm manner, professional advice, itinerary, choice of hotel/restaurants and the other group members, made this a magical and memorable trip for me. I will return, both to Iceland and other trips.

This is my first visit with Melvin, both Iceland and Melvin put on a fabulous show, Iceland does not disappoint. Melvin is funny always positive and his workshop is informal. Some suggestion is to offer single occupancy rooms and better time keeping, however that did not in anyway impact the trip which I have fully enjoyed and would repeat again
