If there is enough interest I can organise  possibly some future gallery and studio visits to other photographers. There will be a supplementary charge for this, but no charge for the follow up sessions. 
The rationale behind these follow up sessions is stimulate further projects that you might have been working on and to create a community that can encourage dialogue amongst yourselves and inspire each other.
