Once again, Ken and Glen were wonderful, I never cease to be amazed at their ongoing enthusiasm and delight at what is on offer and what they can find for us to photograph. They are both a credit to New Zealand Photography Workshops. Your administration support and response to queries is also commendable. The timeliness of responses and information is really appreciated.
