Training with Damian and Lesley is great, its the most fun learning ive ever had and education has become addictive. The more courses/seminars you do/go on, the more courses you want to go on. (hope that makes sense lol) cu guys thursday for Mini Light-Maximum Effect workshop. Cheers or as damian would say ttfn Bryan he he
I would like to say that these two masterclasses were a complete and utter waste of time and I did not learn anything at all. Unfortunately that would be a lie :) Having now been to Mr McGillicuddy's classes I can honestly say it is the best £320 I spent since one night many years ago in Amsterdam...but thats a different story.
Really enjoyed the session damian, what a good venue, It made it very good with the banter along with your technique for us to grill you as much as we could to gleen the info.... Although the camera seemed to be switched off everytime you showed me the back of it lol.

Award-winning portrait photography - is it all in the genes?
120 Lichfield Road, Rushall, Walsall. Does the address ring any bells? Well, if not with you, it certainly does with many thousands of West Midlands families and hundreds of UK photographers who have been in some way touched or influenced by the photodynasty that is resident there.
Photo Quote: Photography, alone of the arts, seems perfected to serve the desire humans have for a moment - this very moment - to stay. - Sam Abell
