I tried on several occasions to organise a bespoke tour with this company. Each time I contacted them I had to follow up for a response some time later. They did not follow through at all and subsequently I gave up trying. Very poor service from a company with otherwise great reviews.

We are extremely sorry for your negative experience with us. The company owner had a period of ill health, in which time the business was not running at its optimum . Thankfully, normal service has been restored.

I went on Mark's workshop on Saturday 23rd February 2013. I would thoroughly recommend anyone wanting to learn more about photography to go on one of these. Perfect for me as it has given me the confidence to now keep my camera on manual mode and experiment with aperture, shutters speed etc. Mark is really good at explaining all the technical aspects that can put the beginner off. His passion and love for photography and sharing this with others shines through. I'll certainly be signing up for any more workshops Mark offers.

Mark taught me & group how exposure worked and how to understand the camera. Also composition and professional tips.
Lots of info. Thanks to Mark for his patience and great insight.

I can only echo what everyone else has already said. Mark is a wonderful teacher, and a really nice guy too! I had been looking to make the jump from (amateur) portrait photography to landscapes - and Mark made me feel like I could most definitely do it. It's a brilliant wee day out, and I can't recommend it enough.
Highly enjoyable, incredibly informative, and paced to whatever level you happen to be at. If you already have a decent understanding of the principles of photography Mark will use the time to take you further.
If you're a beginner you will feel liberated by the knowledge you are going to leave with.
Switch off your pre-sets and have fun!

Thank Jen L
