I've done quite a few monthly photography networking nights here now, and there is always a lovely warm welcome by those that run the place. Emma does a great job and makes the effort to try and add a bit of variety to the rooms.
The models are of varying experience but always very patient! and accommodating and have all been great to talk to and shoot. There is a good turn out of photographers, and I've found most are very considerate of the other photographers that may be in the same room and there is a lovely friendly atmosphere between us all. A bit of fun banter, easy to talk to and helpful. Overall I can't ask for more to practice and learn.
A warm welcome on arrival as you are booked in, tea and coffee provided, access to other areas of the building, and great people all around. A lovely place to learn my trade and meet new people on both sides of the lens.
