Some lovely feedback below from John one of the participants of this hugely successful course.

Walking Talking Photography Feedback
Why have you come to Colour Your Life? (Walking Talking Photography)
I came to Walking, Talking Photography because a friend told me about it. I wanted to meet other people interested in Photography and the countryside; the Weardale valley around St John’s Chapel being a very special part of the North East countryside. The course has developed my photography and allowed me to develop picture taking skills. Working as a group and seeing how and what other people do has been an very good experience. Also the exercise aspect of walking round has been very beneficial as I have some knee joint problems. The routes have been just right and being in the autumn the countryside has been at one of it’s best times of year for the quality of light.

What do you hope to achieve / have achieved through Colour Your Life (WTP)
I have achieved a new, more fluid approach to photography. The Walking Talking Photography course has been very important to maintaining my mental health as I can be susceptible to bouts of depression. The Courses have been just right in terms of the level of activity and learning. The social aspect has also been very important to me.
