    I would like to thank you for your well run course that I participated in last Monday evening. Glenn was an excellent communicator and expanded my understanding of basic photographic techniques very quickly into a useful set of techniques. I would gladly recommend your company to all budding photographers.

    Awesome experience at Vivid 2016 opening night. Learnt a lot about night action photography, tips and tricks, and functions of my camera I wasnt familiar with. Ben was a great guide – informative, thorough and challenging. Highly recommended for beginner/novice like myself and Vivid is a great medium to capture.

    The workshop was brilliant! Ben was a very patient and informative teacher and Vivid a great backdrop! Really learnt an amazing amount and would thoroughly recommend it to beginners or just anyone as a refresher. My children gave me a gift voucher .. what a great gift! Thank you and hope to enjoy more workshops.
