I have also had my images displayed in numerous magazines and wildlife calendars etc.
I have over the years attended many courses, holidays, and trips myself so I know it can be quite daunting when you set out to take your camera off "AUTO" and improve your photography. But you can take away the fear factor because with a bit of help, your perseverance and great subjects you can soon be taking brilliant photographs. If you come on my one of my arranged trips/courses you will come back afterwards with lots of superb photographs but also many great memories...
