I had a wonderful time shooting with Lou. My shooting skills at night were minimal at best and I learned a ton about the perfect settings for crisp, ungrainy shots. London dresses to the nines for Christmas and I got some magical shots! Thank you, Lou!!

Despite the damp conditions, I had a brilliant evening of tuition, guidance, advice and support making a real difference to the images I captured (and will capture in the future). Many thanks Lou, thoroughly recommend this.
