It was well run and very informative. The follow up support, such as an email recapping the essentials, has gone above and beyond my expectations - it was alot to take in on the day so the emailed notes have proven to be very handy for me to refer back to while I practice on my own. Mark was very friendly and knowledgeable and his advice and help has changed the way I think about and work with my camera. 5/5 by Jo Worsfold 10-10-2020
