What a fantastic day! Extremely well structured with outstanding shooting and learning opportunities. A perfect balance between practical workshop, advice and instruction. Ricci is a font of knowledge and always on hand to help and advise. Great opportunity at lunch too to discuss and compare experiences with other delegates. Final icing on the cake was the chance to use other lenses that Ricci had brought along to help future equipment considerations.

It was interesting and engaging to listen to the personal stories of Carolyn. First I expected a kind of lecture about how to make portraits, but actually her method of telling how she does and did it was more interesting. Learnt a lot and I’m very much inspired to create my own projects. Thank you.

A fantastic overview of this lighting technique which also allowed me to try a Zfc Nikon mirrorless camera for the first time as well as a flash system for lighting & a couple of different lenses. As a new photography student contemplating which kit I will be investing in, this was a great opportunity. A model & studio set-up were provided along with excellent instruction & we also did an exterior set up. Printing out an image at the end meant we saw the entire process which was really helpful.

Not a course but a talk given by Carolyn Mendelsohn as part of Photo London at Somerset House. Carolyn talked about her process and in particular her project 'Being Inbetween'. Anyone familiar with her work will not be surprised to hear that the talk was inspirational, laced with humour and often very moving.
REVIEWER: Jonathan G.
Incredibly inspiring listening to Carolyn about her work and the stories behind it. She has such a great energy, and has already inspired so many children to be creative and use photography not only as an art form but as therapy too. Fantastic to hear how she takes her wonderful portraits and how she gets the best out of her subject matter.

Very good day. The bird handlers, aside from being both informative and entertaining, were clearly experienced in setting up opportunities for photography and Ricci helpful in getting the most out of each situation. Loads of opportunities to put different techniques and handle different situations throughout the day. From close up to static and birds in flight to woodlan locations with challenging light. Each one was well briefed and had plenty of time to get a range of images.
REVIEWER: Simon W.
An amazing workshop for anyone loving wildlife photography. The location has a series of great backdrops giving you plenty of options for composition, and with Ricci to hand to help with camera settings your guaranteed to go home with a great portfolio of images. Sharing the day with other like-minded photographers really helped as you share experience and ideas too
REVIEWER: Neil H.
very well organised, non-stop action with experts on the birds and cameras. Got the chance to practice the camera work needed for fast moving birds even in low light conditions. Memorable day.

This is the first time I have done one of Nikon's experience day's.
I have to admit I was not disappointed, Ricci and the staff at the centre were more than willing to help you get the best out of the day.
