Please take a look at some of the testimonials Mark has received...
"The safety and well-being of all my workshop participants have and always will be my priority. Due to the UK government lockdown restrictions of non-essential movement of people I have postponed all residential and 1-day workshops for the next 3 months up to the end of June 2020. I am reviewing future workshop information on a daily basis and will update it here when necessary and in accordance with government policy.
Please be assured that if you have paid a deposit or full payment for a workshop during this period you will not lose it. Your payment will be 100% credited towards a future workshop booked to start before 30th April 2022."
If you would like to be a part of any of the workshops after June 2020 below please get in touch at any time to make a booking. Please be assured that your deposit will be safe and if the workshop has to be postponed due to government restrictions over Covid-19 you will not lose your money. It may simply be transferred to a future workshop of your choice to start before 30th April 2022, so please book with confidence to secure your place.
Please stay safe.
I just wanted to say thank you for a great workshop in Glencoe, despite the weather! You are an excellent workshop leader with a high degree of professionalism, a methodical approach to landscape photography and the ability to adapt your teaching to your clients and the weather.

Thank you so much for such an inspirational day yesterday and for all your patience! I love my prints, thank you! I felt as though I achieved what I had set out to do and learn the principles of printing and look forward to giving things a go myself.

Hi Mark, Just a note to thank you again for such a wonderful week in so many respects. I so enjoyed the locations and the photography. Lots to process and think about again and some new exciting things to try. Your tuition and attention to detail is much appreciated and I always feel inspired again to get out with my camera. See you before too long in Yorkshire.

"Tell me and I forget.
Teach me and I remember.
Involve me and I learn."
“Mark Banks is quite simply one of the best teachers of photography I have ever met. His secret is an apparently endless supply of patience, and an acute analytical approach to developing systematic problem-solving tactics in photography, which he makes effortless and fun to learn, whether in the field or in the editing suite. Mark’s artistry, empathy, kindness and charm mean he is always a joy to work with, or to be taught by.”
