  • Very enjoyable talk. Beautiful photographs with entertaining but informative explanations and some personalised information about the women appearing in the photos. The Lisbon workshop I joined with Patrick Nicholas was great - brilliant locations some completely off the tourist track with some unusual architectural forms and shapes to photograph. Very attentive teacher with great tips and knowledge. Highly recommended.

  • I really enjoyed the talk with Patrick. I love listening to how other photographers get their ideas and how they go about shooting. He was inspiring.
