I wanted to say how much I enjoyed the York one-day course on Monday.  Using the filters and experimenting with long exposures was an excellent experience.  With the small group we all got terrific one on one time with you and benefited greatly from your advice.  I was particularly please with the help you gave me in getting used to my new camera.  I also took some – to my eye anyway – great photographs.  Thanks again and hope to work with you again.

I attended a York workshop with Chris, on a gloriously sunny late Autumn day. The atmosphere was relaxed and informal, and I felt I could ask any question, however basic. Chris took us to a variety of locations presenting challenges in composition, focusing and aperture selection, and gave us a structure for dealing with each challenge. He gave guidance and made constructive comments about our choices of composition, without stifling our own ideas or creativity. Chris talks about photography in a way that makes it accessible ­ not shying away from the technical terms, but de-mystifying them in a refreshing manner. A thoroughly enjoyable workshop, I know I will use the techniques I picked up to improve my photography, but most of all to continue to enjoy it. Karen Coombes
