URGENT UPDATE – MAIL NOT WORKING FOR PAST 6 WEEKS

Hello there,

this is a BIG OOOOPS – I just received a phone call from a client asking why I had not replied to their email which they filled in on the website. Well there is a story behind that.

6 weeks ago our website was updated and actually moved to a new server. It seems during that move the contact me part of the website was not switched which means that if you have filled in a form on my website in the past 6 weeks I would not have got it.

Since the email from those forms is routed to our studio in box and we have been receiving regular email to this email box we had not noticed that the contact us forms on the website were not working.

We can only apologies for this and you can rest assured that someone will be flogged, hung, drawn and quartered shortly.

So if you have contacted is recently and not received a reply – please re contact us.

Sorry for the confusion caused during the site move.

David.

Photography Training Courses

Hello there,

Just a quick update, Over the winter months while things slow down a bit I offer photography training.  I have run courses for several years now and they always go down a storm.  I limit the people on the courses to between ONLY 2 & 4 to make them an almost one on one kind of feeling and to give you the very maximum amount of time going over exactly what you want to learn.

This year we are also offering ONE on ONE sessions at either your location (with expenses) or at our studio where we cover whatever it is your wanting to get covered – more details below
