Charlotte Cowling

Thought I would just send your some feedback on the event I attended today at Calumet Drummond Street. Amazing. Apart from being a great photographer, John has the ability to teach too, able to convey complex issues in a clear and understandable way, which obviously requires great understanding of the subject matter. The structure and pace of the course was excellent, allowing time for questions whilst covering essential information during the day . Can’t believe I learnt so much in one day. And as a bonus John is such a kind, friendly guy whose enthusiasm is infectious. Well done Calumet for holding this seminar. Rating for course 10/10 – could not have wished for more in one day

Dot Ward

Excellent expert, could not convey his instinct for lighting enough, overall excellent stuff

Kenny Graham

John hosted a studio lighting course in August. Great course – John is amazing at getting across his knowledge – top guy!

I would really have liked to stay another hour or two to tap into your expertise and experience. I really want to say how much I enjoyed the course.

Philip Weir

The images I have obtained are far beyond my wildest dreams which really pays homage to your excellent guidance.  It was great to spend the day with such lovely like minded people and as a group I thought we all worked together well.  As I mentioned at the time, both the pace and level of tuition you give is spot on.

Hugh Waghorn

Thanks for a great day today. You had a great team there and the location was top class – I am sure I could spend a full week there and not exhaust all the potential shooting options …… and it goes without saying it was great to be able to call upon your knowledge and experience to both qualify my personal learning and also expand my knowledge and ideas through your insight

Jon Southcomb

Just a quick email to say a big thank you for all your hard work yesterday. It was just as you promised, a very interesting and rewarding day and whilst I haven’t had time to do more than unload the pictures to my PC, I have high hopes that there are some great ones there.  I really appreciate all the energy and enthusiasm you put into these courses and I hope that I will be able to retain all the knowledge!

Louise McDermot

Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed today’s workshop. John Clements was both engaging and informative and his relaxed style made everybody feel at ease and make the most out oftheir seminar experience. I had some doubts whether I would benefit much from the workshops, however within the first 5 minutes I soon realised that Johns experience and teaching skills was highlighting top-tips and important camera craft that will take my photography to another level.
