DSLR Masterclass and 2 workshops in Oslo, Norway this May

I love Norway and am so pleased to announce that I will be doing 2 full day workshops and one evening masterclass in the beautiful city of Oslo.

The workshops are on the 19th and 21st May and the Seminar is on the 20th May, which is a breaking a lifelong tradition of never working on my birthday, but as it’s doing something I love you can all take me out and get me smashed afterwards! 😉

All the info you need including prices are on the official website. Click the image below to go there. But hurry! Booking closes on the 30th April and the workshops only have 20 places each. I am pitching these at intermediate level users. People who have already used the cameras but want to maximise their potential.
