Group Workshop Testimonials

"A friendly, informal, atmosphere aimed very much at the student no matter the level of expertise with on hand, available, and immediate support from Dave during the work sessions. As a Lightroom owner of a number of years and reluctant to get into it properly (mainly because I didn't really know what I was buying at the time) I found Dave’s no nonsense and pragmatic approach to be just what I needed to dispel any fears and kindle my enthusiasm for the software. The presentations and support were not OTT and were aimed at the beginner-intermediate student. Thoroughly recommended."

"Well planned and delivered, small group focussed overview of Lightroom which more than met my expectations. Would be happy to recommend a workshop with Dave to others."

"This was a top end experience, very enjoyable and Dave is very generous with his help and advice, he really is there for the attendees. The workshop venue is purpose built and very professional. I've been reading books and magazines for years but nothing came close to what I learned during the day. If I'd gone home after the first hour, it would have been good value."

"Dave is a very good communicator and I believe we all achieved what we set out for. This was a very good course, well taught and in good location, surroundings. Informal and friendly with plenty of opportunity to explore our own agenda."


1-2-1 Workshop Testimonials

"I can honestly say I feel I received a short masterclass in the Art of Long Exposure from capture to processing from a self-realised General in the field. The experience has opened my mind to a whole new area of photography and experience I had until today never even considered pursuing. After today I'm truly hooked!"

"This was not just another course on long exposure photography tools and techniques! I felt the presence of a master craftsman and was intrigued by Dave's step by step coaching method, as he walked me through the essentials of finding the balance in composition and shaping the light and movement within a scene. To have Dave as my coach was a real privilege. We had two one on one sessions in the field and behind his workstation, packed with creative tips, artistic inspiration and lots of 'aha!' moments on my part, as I briefly peeked behind the scene of Dave's creative process. He was focused and engaging but at the same time gave me the freedom to explore, to find my own style. I look forward to joining him again in search of light and motion."

"Brilliant Workshop which exceeded all my expectations, Dave's passion for his art shone through the whole week and made learning very easy indeed. I would recommend anyone interested in improving their own photography to look no further than Dave Bowman."

"Excellent learning environment with a calm and considerate approach. All questions fully answered. Confidence boosting!"
