Group Workshops
Good Morning,
Thank you for the group photo, much appreciated.  I enjoyed the day.  I do almost all my photography on my own and it was nice to see other people working.  The workshop brought things together a bit for me.  I think I don't pay enough attention to detail, with the composition or the kit I'm using.

Thanks again Peter Jones

Hello Noel,
Exposure Compensation has certainly made a difference. I have been out and about locally and have had an enjoyable afternoon today around Eccleshall and as far as Market Drayton and the Shropshire Union Canal there and at Tyrley Locks and have had some pleasing results.
I received your Staffordshire in Photographs Book today and it has given me some thoughts on local locations although many I am familiar with.
I do intend to join the Stafford Photographic Society and hope to attend the Presidents Evening on 3rd Sept.
Many thanks for your help and I look forward to seeing you soon.
Regards Geoff

Many thanks Noel.
I have so much enjoyed visiting you this morning and for your helpful advice. I look forward to seeing you next Tuesday with my camera and then I am sure I will learn a great deal more about the capabilities of my camera and more important show me how to operate all the various settings because I have to confess I am scared to touch things because I may do something stupid and jeopardise using the camera which seems to operate generally satisfactorily.

Thank you so much for the time you gave me yesterday. I am looking forward to spending some time Photoshopping. I will see you in September at the photo society.

Hi Noel 
Many thanks for the session today . It was really useful and I learnt a lot. I am busy trying out my new skills – I certainly have plenty of material to use! Hope you enjoy Northumberland. 
Best wishes

I have really enjoyed our sessions – and now have all your “nuggets” written up into an excellent guide for the future. 
It’s up to me now to get some practice in and see what I can produce. Will be in touch if and when I’ve identified where I need some extra mentoring. 
Best regards

Hi Noel - Successful Workshop
Thanks very much for your time on Saturday - my head is still buzzing! It was absolutely excellent and I'm looking forward to booking up a session at The Roaches with you. 
Kind regards
