Lecture Testimonials

Thank you very much for coming to Swavesey Camera Club to give your splendid talk "Depth of Feeling".
I know from my conversations with members in the coffee queue that if was very well received.
Your approach to photography is refreshing and certainly gave me some food for thought.

With thanks and best wishes.

Really enjoyed your talk last night and I think you will note from the audience response

I undertook my commute today with renewed interest and picked out several of the sites you highlighted!

Thanks again and with best regards

Thank you so much for tonight's inspiring talk at Edmonton. Your enthusiasm
can across and I'm sure will have prompted our member to get out to take
photos for their own projects.

Nick Clark
Programme Secretary
Edmonton Camera Club

Thanks for the talk, I for one really enjoyed it and I think most members enjoyed it and found it to
be a 'breath of fresh air' - so unlike any other speakers we have had. Thank you.


Stowmarket Camera Club

Thank you for a thought provoking talk this evening in Godmanchester.
I am a 'new' photographer who has lots of photographs that I have taken over the years.
I learned a lot this evening, not least, don't throw photos away or 'delete' !
Looking forward to looking at your website and hearing more about your exhibition later in the year.

Kind regards
Godmanchester Photographic Society

I just wanted to say thank you for the excellent talk you gave to us at the Stowmarket Camera Club the other week. 
I really enjoyed it, it was like a breath of fresh air.  You have certainly encouraged me not to get
too anxious about rules and technicalities, and trying to take the perfect shot all the time. 
It makes it much more fun and adventuress when freed from these constraints -
and I really don't mind if I don't win any competitions!!! 
All the best with your exhibition in Cambridge.

Kind regards,
Stowmarket Camera Club
Thank you for the interesting talk you presented last week at Nazeing , very informative

Mike Wood

Many thanks for your email this morning and for visiting us last evening,
 it was a most interesting talk with as you say a different perspective in the line.
Many thanks again for visiting us and for certainly being one of the clearest speakers we have had.

Best regards
