 I wish I had enjoyed this kind of opportunity earlier in my education, and I would recommend anyone to attend. In comparison with long-term education, this kind of intensive workshop offers a more practical insight on certain aspects, and has allowed me to get feedback on specific areas of my practice.

It was an amazing experience, and though possibly the most difficult four days I've had in showing my work to others and getting feedback etc, since starting university, I do not regret being involved and appreciate even being considered for the course. It was an invaluable experience to hear the tutors feedback on both my own work and others, and to see where the other participants were in their own careers, a few years down the line from my own. It was also good to hear how the tutors get on in their lives and how they got into photography themselves.

Great! I would like to thank Asmara and the Noor photographers, Nikon and everyone

else at Noor for putting this on. Was a really inspiring few days. One of the best bits was meeting all the other photographers and seeing all their work. It's always so helpful to meet a supportive group of people all sharing the same passion as myself. It was a really nice atmosphere at the workshop.

The Noor photographers we worked with were AMAZING! Each of them different from one another but all equally talented and inspiring. An absolute pleasure getting to know them all. The workshop was far more practical and hands on than other courses. It was also flexible enough to incorporate additional learning points and discussion as things progressed.
