"My week at Studio Lavalette has been really great. I have learned so much about photogaphy from Don's teaching, demonstations, guidance and expeditions; my enthusiasm has been rekindled.  The Studio is an ideal place to learn about photography but also enjoy Trisha ad Don's hospitality.  Trisha's food has been fantastic and the accommodation is spacious and luxurious.  I came away feeling like a family friend."  Ian W - April 2019

"The Course exceeded my expectations.  It was delivered in a measured, but appropriately challenging way.  My mind-set towards using the Automatic option on the camera has been completely changed and my introduction to Photoshop was given the time and detail required.  Am so proud of my prints!Carol B - September 2017
