Darter Photography Workshops – Feedback & Testimonials

It has been more than a year since we have been doing photography workshops every month. We began in Bangalore and have recently extended the workshops to Hyderabad. We will soon be coming to a few more cities across India.

Be it our photography workshops or photography tours, one of the key things that we always keep our eyes on is the quality and feedback. We have worked long hours and spent a lot of time planning and designing the workshop content. Besides content, we are also fastidious about how we present it, how much time we spend on each section and how much hands-on practice has to go into each part. We also make sure every participant thoroughly understands each aspect that we discuss, and spend time personally assisting each one of them during the workshop.

Further, in our effort to ensure that the workshops are of the highest quality, we take regular feedback at the end of every workshop. These feedback are taken seriously and we spend time discussing every feedback we receive, and ponder if we should make updates to the workshop content based on it.

With more than a year of capturing feedback and with a good number of people responding to it, it is safe to say that we now have a general idea about what participants largely think about our photography workshops. It is also perhaps time to share these feedback and testimonials with everyone. In fact, we were overwhelmed by the positive response to our workshops and were touched by the testimonials and how well the participants appreciated our workshops. It is no wonder that people who came for the workshops continue to attend many of our programmes again and again.

Here is the summary of feedback we have received so far, collected over a year from February 2011 to February 2012 from 27 people who opted to provide feedback. Also see some testimonials from the participants at the end of this page.
