Awesome. Such a lovely event. The walk was beautiful and I have lived in Bristol for over 20 years and didn't know the first bit of this route. The advice was great, made an immediate difference to my pics. Really useful tips. Would love to do more like this on different aspects of photography. The walk was kept at a pace for everyone and Jess was really keen to answer questions and very welcoming. Excellent value for money. Thanks Jess.
