That's well spotted, Bob. I'm definitely interested, but for me it would have to be after Christmas/New Year. Still, I see the offer is valid until May 2013. This could make a good forum meet, booking as a group. Anyone interested?

Yes i would be - again it would have to be after the holidays, but if we could find out more details and how to get the same date for a group booking perhaps, it could be a good deal.

Re: 35 half day portrate course

My apologies.............in my opening post I said the course was near Hitchin. It's actually in Cheshunt, Herts.

Hope you can all get a group booking. I note there are contact telephone numbers on the website and I'm sure they can help.

Hitchin, Chesunt - probably about the same distance for me.

I'll see how many are interested then get in touch with the company.

Hi John, Did you get much response to this?

Re: 35 half day portrate course

Thanks for the reminder, Steve, it had slipped to the back of my mind. Unfortumately, following my Christmas spending and having to have the boiler and cooker repaired within the last month, it looks like I'll have to pass on this one myself.

No problems John. I am quite interested in doing this myself so might go ahead and book a course. Thanks

Re: 35 half day portrate course

Too far for me, but, if it helps, a friend and I did one of these at a Bird of Prey centre this year. One of the best days of my photography life so far

Bit of a drive for me also. I also saw a Wildlife Photoshoot experience on Travelzoo that looked really interesting, I think this may be the same one you mention.

Edit: By the way, absolutely superb shot. Think you may have sold me the course.
