This was my 2nd trip with Phillip Norman Photography Adventures, my 1st time to Canada, it was an amazing trip full of adventure and mind boggling scenery's to behold and capture on camera. Phillip is always there to give advise, listen to ideas and take care of everything else from comfy accommodation to tasty places to eat, even cooking scrumptious meals himself sometimes! I cannot recommend Phillip enough if you want an exciting and fun filled tour, he delivers everything he promises and more, I will certainly be signing up for another trip or 3 🙂
One way to measure success is the number of people who come back a second time and I am proud to say I am one of those. Phil is patient and calm in all circumstances and its really pleasing to see the amount of time he invests in those who need help most with their photography at the expense of his own capture opportunities. The other quality that I admire is his genuine care and responsibility for all his participants. I have no reservations about joining another one of Phillip's trips and will recommend them to others.
A big thank you to Phillip for the help he gave me in working out how to exposure blend an image of mine. It's not everyday that someone is willing to reach out and give advice and support the way he did, He went the extra mile in helping me. He provided a video of how he would blend my exposures which I found extremely helpful. The video gave me ideas a tips on how to exposure blend moving forward. I would so highly recommend Phillip; his expertise, knowledge and generosity is amazing.
Being fairly new to editing with both Photoshop and Lightroom, my “blown out cloud filled skies and blue toned background mountains” were causing me a lot of grief. Phillip's advice resulted in a better understanding of how all the sliders and layers work. Phillip created a short tutorial explaining from start to finish how to correctly edit those problem areas with a simple, easy to follow process. I highly recommend his tutorial’s, and look forward to contacting him again to learn more wonderful editing techniques in the near future.
I had a certain style that I had envisioned but was un-sure how to achieve this in Photoshop. Phillip provided me with a private and personalised tutorial video, editing my image, giving very detailed instructions throughout the process. It was of immense help and I now confidently use Photoshop to edit my images. Anyone who is after specific help with a particular thing; I highly recommend you contact Phillip!
