Kingfisher Special Photography day
I had already completed the Landscape photography day some time ago, so I already felt comfortable that I would receive excellent tuition in a friendly atmosphere. The Kingfisher special day totally exceeded my expectations.
After an early start I was driven to a stunning location. Every effort had been made to ensure that we were as comfortable as possible in the hide. Tea and wonderful homemade flapjacks (thanks to his lovely wife, Alison) in plentiful supply. It was a one to one day, and Jack's knowledge of my own particular camera and photography in general is just fantastic. Coupled with his friendly patient, genuine style of teaching I learnt so much on the day.
I felt that Jack really cared that I managed to achieve the best shots I have ever taken that day without impacting the wildlife negatively . His ethical approach to the wildlife is refreshing and something I will carry with me in my hobby as well as the technical knowledge he passed on. He is very much a "positive feedback" sort of a coach - great if you lack confidence or feel a bit out of your depth with all those technical terms.
I'll certainly be back for another course.
