Had a great day wandering around a very quiet London with Cande. The best time to go and visit the City before the tourists return. Here are some pictures from the day.
Just completed my first residential course in the New Forest. Stayed at Chilworth Manor and great locations in and around the New Forest including Salisbury. Here are a few of my pics taken on the new Fuji X-T100.

With the relaxing of restrictions around Covid19 we are hoping to be able to offer courses again soon. This of course depends on government advice.
From the 4th July we should be able to offer our 1-2-1 courses, 1 day courses and Fotowalks. Once the guidance is issued from the government and we have a clearer picture with regard to the position for hotel bookings we may be able to offer some UK based residential courses later in the Summer / Autumn. At the moment overseas courses for 2020 seem unlikely due to travel restrictions but we are hoping to offer new dates for 2021.
Check out our website www.fotocourses.co.uk for the latest information and new dates. Website update due end of June.
