Warehouse Express, (one of the best and punctual camera resellers in the UK), have asked me to run two evening events at their showroom in Norwich. The first, on Tuesday 12 March 2013, is called Editing with Ease and I'll be showing why the Wacom tablet and pen plus Photoshop make the perfect partners. And the second, on Tuesday 16 April 2013, will be a Guide to Lightroom 4.0 when I'll be going over the ins and outs of this amazing piece of software.

After running an advert on the Dronne Valley Network (similar to the 7 Sep 2012 entry below), we've been so completely overwhelmed with the response that we've decided to run 2 one-day Workshops rather than 1 two-day workshop. Regrettably we've had to turn away lots of folk, but we will be doing more Workshops early in 2013 and for those that emailed us direct, we will keep you informed as to the new dates.
