Average customer rating for this course:
"What a pleasure it was to attend this talk with Tom Mason at Nikon's beautiful Centre of Excellence - imagine a subterranean lair full of all the best gadgets Nikon has to offer and you wouldn't be far off. The kitchen even has a yellow and black kettle with salt and pepper shakers to match! I attended the Coffee, Cakes and Cameras session, which provided everything you'd expect from the title and more. It's superbly well run and Tom Mason was a truly inspiring speaker."
"Very well organised, easy location to get to from the underground. Staff welcoming and ready to receive me. Venue ideal. Great coffee and cake. Tom Mason was awesome, a relaxed very informative style made the time very enjoyable. After the talk able to stay and speak informally to Tom. Great value, will do this again. "
"Easy walk fro Oxford Circus underground. Excellent meet and great. Friendly and helpful staff. The presentation by Tom Mason was excellent and covered a wide range of subjects. The subjects were pitched at the right level. He certainly knows his stuff. Brilliant methodology of flow from the first image through commercial to his own project work. A man of great passion and belief, could have listened to him all day. His images were totally amazing."
"I enjoyed the course as an interesting overview of Wildlife Photography from a professional. I understood the key messages on not looking for quick results and to be sensitive to the animals and birds and their habitat. I am keen to try my hand soon."
"Tom Mason was brilliant, good technical explanations, seems to have the ability to talk photography on all levels. Neil was the perfect host as ever, making everyone feel welcome and at ease. I had recently bought a new camera and whilst travelling to the course realised a fault had developed with it, the staff identified the problem for me, wrote a letter for me to take to the London branch of the retailer I had purchased it from authorising them to exchange it. Brilliant customer care."
