Peter said: Very many thanks for all your help and advice yesterday - I learned a lot! We achieved what I was keen to get through on the high key front. I tend to be fingers and thumbs with the camera, and the insight that you click the 'dials towards the camera for more light' was a eureka moment. I'll spend time practicing in the dark getting to particular camera settings without looking! Claire was an inspired choice as model and I sense I'm going to see quite a lot more images of her in your portfolio! Anyway it was altogether a most worthwhile and enjoyable day, for which very many thanks.
lan said: Hi D. Thank you for a fantastic 2 days. Loads of top info, new skills learned, inspiration & thought provoking ideas.
Chris said: Thanks for the the bespoke training day. I expected my expectations to be exceeded, but you even exceeded that! Your enthusiasm, technical expertise and creative marketing solutions are brilliant. Your generosity and willingness to share this with me is very much appreciated and will be greatly valued for a very long time.
Tina said: Thank you to you and your team for pointing me in the right direction and giving me the tools and confidence to value my work more! I've just had a very good viewing using the projector and the order value is nearly £4000! A big thank you to the LC team."
Cocoon Photo: Back from 2 fantastic days training with Damien Lovegrove. Wow… there certainly are some fabulous images..feel so inspired! If you're looking for training, inspiration, advice I can't recommend Damien Lovegrove enough!
David said: I had a couple of amazing days with tonnes and tonnes of consideration & patient tutoring from Damien. Also a big thanks to both the models for their patience. I learnt LOADS and feel that I will be back for more in the not too distant future :)
Bjørn said: Many thanks for the two inspiring days in Bristol. The job I did the day after returning, was done under terrible conditions (rainy, dark and freezing cold). But thanks to what I experienced in Bristol, it all went well and the girls I photographed really had fun. So, again; thank you. The time and money was well spent!
Simon said: I would like to thank you for your guidance on the 1 to 1 session yesterday. It was a really enjoyable experience and I certainly learnt a great deal under your guidance. It has given me a lot to think about, and opened up a range of potential shooting scenarios for me. Having started working through the images they all look great, even the ones in low light! Look forward to attending another training day with you again in the future.
Steve said: I thought I’d just drop you a line to say what a truly inspiring day I had last week! I learned an unbelievable amount and came away with some awesome pictures. Once again thank you for a memorable and inspiring day.
