Thank you so much Dion for another great photo excursion. Very well thought out though flexible and as usual you were on hand to offer useful tips and helpful advice.
Great to use the Kase filters again too!
Thanks Dion for an amazing workshop, you have helped my confidence grow on the technical side of using my camera once again. I have some lovely images now to look back and remember the experience.
Your Guide: Dion Hitchcock
Dion is an expat Australian based in London, United Kingdom. A prodigious traveler, after visiting 40+ countries he decided it was high time to learn about photography so he could better document his travels and quickly caught “the bug”. He became involved in several camera clubs assisting them running workshops and now runs his own, including in the UK, Iceland, and his home country of Australia. A qualified pharmacist, he’s now swapped helping patients and teaching pharmacy students for helping clients with both the technical aspects and artistic side of photography. Although an unconventional transition, he sees this as a natural progression as both of his parents are artists who instilled in him an appreciation of the beauty of the wondrous world around us.
