"I'd just like to thank you very much for the information and advice you gave me during todays workshop at Bempton, I've reviewed the photo's and there is a 100% improvement in the results ... I think your advice regarding exposure compensation was spot on …£45.00 well spent after the hours of turmoil and frustration!!"

“I thought I was proficient a wildlife photographer but a day out with Steve has taken my work to a whole different level. His knowledge of location, behaviour, ISO, exposure and speed has helped me expand the scope and bounds of my skill set exponentially and on top of this he is a really nice bloke. All in all a cracking day out. Thanks Steve”
