Reviews for Jo’s previous sell out RPS workshops….
“I have had a great deal of feedback from the RPS members who attended the workshops and suffice to say it was a great hit with them. Many said that they were sceptical about using their phones for photography, but they were completely converted after Jo’s sessions. Without exception everyone admitted to learning a great deal.
"It was an excellent workshop and very well run by Jo. She is extremely helpful and is an excellent teacher. I thoroughly enjoyed the day."
