Last night, Melvin 'Zoomed' in to our camera club (ADAPS) virtual meeting to present his much anticipated talk on Scotland. What an amazing evening, well worth the wait and excellent value for money, lasting 2 and a half hours. There was a choice of presentations, but we opted for the one on Scotland, as it was the one place we might actually get to visit in person this year 😊 Melvin's enthusiasm was infectious, his knowledge faultless and his photographs were of course inspiring. It was one of the best club evenings I've been to in a long time (including Pre Lockdown when we were meeting in person). If you're looking for a great speaker for your club or event, then I highly recommend Melvin. Feedback received from other club members: - Last night’s presentation was amazing, thoroughly enjoyed it 😁 - Some excellent images, there! - He was brilliant, i'd have to say he was the best speaker I've seen ever. Thank you for having arranged it. 👍👍

Another great workshop with Melvin, this time to the San Quiricio d'Orcia area in Tuscany. A first rate hotel with great facilities (not that we found a lot of time to use them), the hotel also had the advantage that it was within a short drive or even a short walk from some of the iconic sites for great photography in the region. We photographic at all the great spots and even managed to get mist in the valleys for our early morning sunsets. As ever Melvin was great fun with more enthusiasm for photography than many people. Overall it was a great 5 days and I look forward to the next trip with Melvin.

Not long back from a fantastic day's photography in the Lake District with Melvin. This was my first time in the Lakes, and I had spoken to Melvin about a few specific images I was keen to capture, and then left it to him to fill the itinerary for what was a very full day. We met at 9, and went through all day to Sunset - so great value for money. Melvin's knowledge of the Lakes meant that we went to places at the perfect times in terms of light, and he knew the optimum places to park to ensure we were on location quickly. Melvin's knowledge of the area and also his appreciation for what the microclimate there is doing is invaluable - as he was able to quickly adapt the itinerary as the weather changed during the day. Undoubtedly we packed way more into the day than I would have managed on my own and we visited several locations that were totally quiet and devoid of the sometimes large crowds - perfect for both photography and in these strange Covid times. My wife joined us for the day - a non-photographer - and whilst she was initially concerned she would be bored, Melvin is a great host as well as fantastic photographer. She thoroughly enjoyed there day too - seeing a huge amount that we would otherwise never have found. From a photography perspective, Melvin gives you as much tuition / support as you need. In my case, he let's me set up, compose, and dial in all camera settings / filters etc, and then gives helpful hints and tips to improve the above - tweaking, adjusting, advising in a manner that means that I am confidently creating great images which are improved further by Melvin's technical and creative mentoring. I will undoubtedly be booking on more trips with Melvin !!

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

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.
