The day started drizzly and didn't improve but that did not dampen Neil's enthusiasm. We didn't have far to walk to get some very good shots of the deer, due to the weather and lack of walkers/dogs. Neil was always on hand to guide us to the best shots and give advice of post-processing to achieve better images. I'd never have thought about de-haze but it's made a big difference to my images.
A really enjoyable weather despite being soaked through and I'm already thinking about next year!

Really good day. Weather was rubbish, poor light and then started to rain, which gradually became heavier. On the positive side, there were fewer visitors to the park, so the deer were very easy to find. Neil was brilliant! Good fieldcraft skills in tracking and getting in front of the herds and very helpful in making suggestions on what camera settings to use in poor light. Thoroughly enjoyed the course, well done.

My first Nikon School experience was truly rewarding! Ricci and Neil, the moderators, were exceptional. They not only answered all our questions with enthusiasm but also made sure to create a welcoming environment for amateur photographers like me. Their genuine passion for teaching was evident throughout the session. A special shout-out to Rachel Bigsby for inviting me. I'm already looking forward to attending more sessions in the future !!

I like that there are two hosts and its good to see difference in their views at times. Generally, this is a very helpful course for new Nikon users like me. I enjoyed the session.
REVIEWER: Ramchandra K.
Good location and plenty of deer to shoot close to the meeting point, latter party due to inclement weather and lack of dog walkers. Good introduction on lenses and camera settings for the shoot. Lots of suitable Nikon kit to loan if needed. Misty and rainy conditions were challenging but turned out better than I expected. Got some good shots despite the conditions. Good debrief and Q&A time later over coffee.
REVIEWER: Stephen P.
Firstly, the course concept itself it's great, a live Q&A which helped a lot of people including myself. Neil and Ricci were also very patient, they answered every question in detail and if you still had a doubt they would explain until you had a clear idea. Their knowledge is very good, they answered both gear and practical questions in a way that everyone would understand and also gave useful tips. Overall, it was a very nice experience and I can't wait for the next session! 100% recommend it

I did all five days of this course. Each day I took new skills away from it. Neil and Ricci made everyone feel welcome and at ease. There were no silly questions. My composition has improved so much just by going over the simple steps they went over. I learnt new ways to take landscape pictures that I would never have thoguht of on my own. The other delegates on the course had different experience levels which made the conversations really interesting. I can't wait for my next course.

A good blend of challeging locations a weather conditions to overcome. Help was always on hand from the Nikon team.
REVIEWER: Trevor K.
Good locations, good tutition, good level of knowledge from the Nikon team. The locations as always weather dependant and you need to be flexible with the changing weather and location. Good knowledge of the local area by the team.
