  1. Hi
    I came on your course at Ilam which I enjoyed. I did feel that much of the technical content was not of use to me. I have looked at the content of the Brian Griffin workshop and much of it seems to be the same. Are you planning any more advanced workshops?

  2. Martin says:

    The description for the Environmental Portraiture/Brian Griffin workshop is very general. It will be very different from the Ilam experience, including looking at lighting and working methods. We are also open to ideas, so if there are any specific areas that you would like to cover let us know. We will also be giving different talks at the same time so people can choose what they want to attend. It means that regular attendees get more choice and won’t have to sit through the same thing twice.

    Send us your ideas/requests.
