Back to school

NPhoto - - Over To You -

I would like to take a few lines to praise Nikon School, not just for the wide range of cour­ses and sem­i­nars they of­fer, but for the pro­fes­sional way they go about it.

I re­cently at­tended a Low Light London ses­sion; not only did it pour down all evening but the tem­per­a­ture dropped to zero, while the fa­cil­i­ta­tor bat­tled on re­gard­less. Now, the weather is what it is and Nikon School, of course, aren’t re­spon­si­ble. So imag­ine my sur­prise when I re­ceived an email of­fer­ing me a place on a fu­ture ses­sion at no cost. They didn’t have to do that, and the sub­se­quent ses­sion was ex­cel­lent.

Sep­a­rately, I booked my­self on a Cof­fee and Cakes morn­ing with wildlife pho­tog­ra­pher David Yar­row. A week be­fore the due date I dis­cov­ered I would need to be in hos­pi­tal. The staff at Nikon School im­me­di­ately of­fered me a re­fund or a place on a fu­ture ses­sion, which I ac­cepted. But that’s not all! When I fin­ished my stay in hos­pi­tal I found a copy of David Yar­row’s cof­fee ta­ble book of some of his best work wait­ing for me. It is so large it must have cost nearly as much as I paid for the ses­sion to post it to me! They al­ways go the ex­tra mile.

At­tached is an im­age from the lat­est course I at­tended with Nikon School [see be­low]. I hope you like it, and if other read­ers want a re­ally good day out with like-minded pho­tog­ra­phers in an in­for­ma­tive and en­joy­able set­ting, then give Nikon School a try. Tony Baker, via email We work with Nikon School a lot and know just how ded­i­cated they are. It’s great to hear you’ve had such a lovely ex­pe­ri­ence, de­spite the set­backs.
