We’ve had a great time... thanks to everyone who attended the Inspirational Days
and made them a resounding success!
Comments from some of the photographers who attended...
Worked with Mark on a photography tutoring project today, fantastic guy and very
professional! I'm sure everyone learnt a lot from today including me. The
project was well organised and structured. I saw some great shots from quite a
few photographers, looking forward to see the rest! Had a lot of fun and I
highly recommend Mark!"
Thanks again for today:) Linda
Hi Mark, Just a very quick hello to say a very big thank you for all the work at
yesterday's seminar. It was great to be able to share in all the knowledge and
laughs in a time when all photographers seem to be putting up barriers, thanks
again. Hope to see you at some other event in the near future.
Many thanks again Alasdair
hi Neil, Just a quick note to thank you for the excellent day yesterday. Graham and I both came away with renewed enthusiasm for a very busy wedding
season this year. It was lovely to spend the day with fellow photographers and to come away with
some fresh ideas with regard to the use of available light etc. We also enjoyed Mark's take on lighting location portraiture - fab! Both you and Mark delivered the presentations in a refreshingly light hearted
way, which just added to the enjoyment of the day and Charlotte in particular
was an absolute joy to photograph.
Thank you. Trixie
I attended the inspirational Day in Kent which I thought was fabulous. The
guests speakers where "inspirational" by showing new methods to take
photographs such as using studio lighting and varying poses. They were also
both very helpful in answering all manner of questions. Although I have been a
photographer for over 20 years, I still picked up some really useful tips. It
was also a great opportunity to meet other photographers. All in all a
brilliant training day which was set in a beautiful location with wonderful
lunches and tea breaks too. I would thoroughly recommend these days which are
fantastic value for money. Helen
Neil, thank-you again for the day at Maidstone which was inspiring for all three
of us. It was also educational and a great day out from the office / studio for
us all. Thank you too for allowing our Work Experience student Ruben to come
along. Kind regards Andrew
Neil: Thanks very much for the 'Be Inspired' day at Maidstone last week. It was
an excellent day and I picked up lots of ideas from the presenting
photographers as well as the other delegates. I thought the contrast of the two
presenters styles and appproaches to photography were excellent to see side by
side. The models were amazing and Holly really made the day for me - I have
never worked with professional models before and it was very enlightening to
see what a difference it was to working with normal clients. Regards, Steve
Just a note to say how much I enjoyed the Inspire Day at Duxford. Both of you shared an enormous amount of information which was invaluable. Kind regards, Belinda
Hi Mark, just wanted to say that I really enjoyed the day, and did indeed find
I've had my head buried firmly in tutorials since that day, and then one of the
best shoots I've
ever had in our studio - you guys have really made me want to up my game!
Hope to meet you again further down the road, kind regards, Jerry
Hi Kev, quick note to say many thanks to both you and Mark for a great day
yesterday. Really interesting. Speak soon, Dave
Enjoyed Liverpool Kevin, thanks very much ! Truly inspiring !!! Gary
Today was really great, really enjoyed it!!! Thanks so much, Julie
Just a quick email to say how much I enjoyed the Inspirational Day at Liverpool
with Kevin, Mark and you guys from GFSmith. Well presented, good selection of topics and great fun. Big thank you to you all for arranging it, book me in for the next one!
Kind regards, Luke
Just a quick note to thank you for yesterday. Its nice to have some 'time out'
and get to talk with professional trainers like Kevin and Mark. Both who,
although have different styles are interesting to listen to. These training
days can only help and increase the quality of photography in general and I
know GF Smith are keen on this. Well done, thanks again. Laurence
Just a quick note to say thanks to all the team for yesterday. I found it to be
most enjoyable, both Mark and Kevin have given me ideas for my work as well as
going over the techie bits. If you are doing something like this in the future
please keep me informed as we would make a point of getting to the event. Thanks, Alan
The photography day was very well presented, and the numbers attending were just
about right. Any more and it would have been a bit crowded. The venue was fine
too and the amazing weather, with easy parking. Well done! Best wishes Robyn
Well done to all involved putting this event together. Nice to see a company
investing in photographers. (I know we paid to attend this training day). I would definately attend future events that offer training in specific areas. I got a great deal from the day and had alot more time to look at GF Smith
products. The local rep Nik is spot on. Dedicated to his role and attentive and willing to help. Customer service is
very very important to me and I have no doubt at all about the level of service
that I could expect to get from Nik and team, I hope to be able to grow my
relations with GF Smith in the future. Steve
Cheers Kevin, thanks for a great inspiring day. Always something new to learn!
Thank you for great seminar. I’m very lucky to join it! I’ll contact you later again:-) Michi
Just thought I would drop you a line to say a big thank you for yesterday. The
Inspiration Day did exactly what it said on the tin! Learnt so much and I'm
still buzzing from it! Kevin & Mark were just great and really made a funny double act. Let me know when the
next one is!
Best Wishes Christine
The GFSmith sponsored "Be Inspired" day did exactly what it said! It was really
inspiring. Can't wait
for this weekend's wedding to try out some of the 90 degree controlled lighting
and dramatic posing.
Thanks for all you put into the day. Belinda
Thanks for today, as usual it was very informative and fun.
Thank you for looking at my work, I'll definitely be looking at doing my ABIPP
this year and as
I said, listening and learning from you has changed my photography and my
business over the
years for the better.
Thank you. Martin
