This is what a couple of our clients have said:

"I had the most amazing time at Studio Lavalette. The ambiance, the food, the accommodation and the photography tuition was tailored to each participants needs. I'm a bit of a nightmare being veggie and dairy free, but none of this fazed Trisha - she produced wonderful dishes at each meal. [And] I don't see how the accommodation could be improved. I highly recommend the [Photo HERO] course and will be singing its praises to our photography club." Rosemary H (Vice Chair Dungannon Camera Club) - August 2013

"If you are looking for structured, creative tuition, delivered in a relaxed and supportive environment; mouth-watering meals and very comfortable accommodation; plus, a seemingly infinite variety of photogenic locations nearby - then, look no further.
