It is because of you that I am a strong and confident person today.

And that person is you.
Happy Teachers' Day!"
A small handfull met for morning coffee in storm, rain and 5c to walk the city. We started with a coffee and ended off with a coffee - and felt really proud we had done something productive despite the weather.
"I know there is not much change for you to read this but i wanted to thank you for your masterclass. I have took it to inspite me and since then, i have the feeling my photos are so much better and i am so much more proud of my work! This all because of your inspiring work and words during your masterclass
You were the voice i needed to hear to start evolving in my photography."
"What a wonderful present to give to anybody who wants to experience the joys of photography and art. I have repurchased your complete package from overgaard.com even though I have a number of your materials already! I am sure you have refined it over the years.
"I took your masterclass many years ago now, and I am still applying those principles learnt when I wear my camera."
