“The four days I spent with Geraint made for the best photography workshop I’ve ever attended. He was generous with his time and even more giving with his knowledge. His patient, supportive approach created a learning environment where I could proceed at my own pace. We explored some wonderful locations and were able to interact with a number of colorful characters. Mark van Doren said, “The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery.” That’s a perfect description of what Geraint does”.
