I recently attended a work shop with Aaron and would like to highly recommend his courses and travel experiences to everyone. Aside from being an outstanding human being, Aaron is also a wonderful teacher – patient, humorous, fun, funny, knowledgeable, adventurous, enthusiastic……it is a joy to be around him., to watch him at work, to take confidence from  his ease and good spirit. He’s a very present teacher too, not someone who is purely in the background observing his students, he takes time to make sure you have the  knowledge, including your settings and composition at a shoot. Aaron is also very open to feedback to help change and better his programs any time during a course. You can see how much passion on photography he’s got, he transmits it to you every day and that’s probably why his workshops are so good

Thank you, Aaron,  for all the planning and organising you have done to make this Tour such a success. I would heartily recommend any fellow photographers to take one of your tours and to enjoy everything they have to offer.

I have learn’t more about settings and have some great shots that I am proud to share. I think these types of tours are the way to go for Martin & I to travel as we love photography and you took all the stress out of what I think may have been a nightmare had we tried to do it on our own.

As a member of the Bali Tour July 19-25 2015, I must congratulate you both on the sharing of your skills with all tour members. The locations were great and you helped us all to achieve some wonderful images. Your guidance and caring attention to us was superlative.
I thoroughly recommend anyone thinking of joining your tour for it’s realistic pricing, awesome locations and your depth of knowledge in photography which you both willingly helped us to bring back some unique and exceptional images

I would just like to say thank you for such a wonderful photographic experience to the beautiful island of Bali that we recently returned from. We had the best time, and learnt so much, it was definitely a high point in holiday experiences we have had to date. The locations you organised for us to visit were absolutely stunning, the guide was gorgeous, and our accommodation was great. I liked the combination of professionalism and friendliness shown by yourself personally, and at all times we felt well looked after. I also enjoyed the freedom we had to go off and shoot at the locations wherever or however we wanted, but if we needed any help, tips or advice you were readily available to lend a helping hand. I found the information shared very generous, helpful and explained in layman easy to understand language.

Did I mention the fun aspect? We had so much fun and laughed often, I would thoroughly recommend anyone who has a passion for photography to take their next holiday in this way. To share with like minded people in such an environment is simply priceless.

Thank you for such a rich and rewarding experience.

What a memorable and exhilarating photography adventure we had. It was 5 days of fun, fellowship and some of the best landscape photography I’ve ever experienced. I had a fantastic time and I just want to say a huge thanks to you and Seng for sharing your photography knowledge and skills so willingly with us. I learnt a lot and I know that it’s going to help me develop my skills in this hobby that I love.

Thank you Aaron for a great Bali photographic adventure. I really enjoyed the time I spent with you and the others on this trip. I learned a lot from you and I doubt I would have seen any of these beautiful locations in Bali had I not taken part. Thank you for organising such comfortable, reliable transport. We had a great driver who knew all the right short cuts, and a heartfelt thank you too to our amazing guide, Dewi, we were so well looked after. Gunung Kawi remains my favourite location – you can sense the aura of majesty of the place when walking through there, truly beautiful and I hope my photos do it justice…. I can’t wait to get my photos onto my computer and start working with them. Thank you for the trouble you went to, to ensure we all had what we needed and we all are coming home with happy memories, tired legs and photos we can be proud of. Thank you.
