    The best! Sangam was very patient and helpful with all of us and even helped each one of us individually.
    It was fantastic! The instructor was very knowledgeable and patient.
    Another great event. This was my second time doing a long exposure event with Sangam. As an instructor, he is very knowledgable, informative, and proactive in finding good locations to shoot and advice on equipment to use.

    I enjoyed it, the instructor had a lot of good ideas for shots to share and it was a nice small group
    This was a well appreciated event for me. I have been yearning to get out and explore long exposure photography and having a guide work with our small group of three was exactly what I needed to practise this skill and learn a few tricks.
    A great event and Sangam gave a lot of helpful information. My experience of long exposure photography was limited so I learnt a lot from this event. I look forward to more.

    Excellent workshop. K.C. Sangam is a knowledgeable, helpful event leader. Event is highly recommended
    This was my second outing with the group and I found it fun and informative. Although the sunlight wasn't fully cooperative, there was still ample lighting to explore the genre and Gabriel makes a great tour guide. I appreciate these events as it gives me an avenue to expand my photographic expertise and my creative eye.
    It was a great experience to meet up with a varied group of photo enthusiasts and embark upon a journey with the intent to capture theme related images in a public setting. There seemed to be a balanced mix of discussion relating to choice of lenses and photographic styles with personal conversations on how we each came to be at this particular meet up. I am happy to have participated in this event and look forward to joining others like it in the future.

    I enjoy my time, I plan to come out for the event on the 29.
    I was a great and informative day with Gabriel. He is so passionate and given good information. Thank you
    Instructor - excellent! Very kind, patient, and knowledgeable. Location - fabulous! Granville island has so many photographic possibilities

    Introducing the Bald Eagle. I took this photo on the 15th of May, 2024. I was casually walking across the sea wall when I saw an eagle looking into the water. It was all alone in the middle of a beach and it was staring in a single direction. It was almost as if the eagle was lost in thought or very deperessed. I knew it was my chance to capture this magnificent animal, so I walked down the stairs and went close to the bird of prey. Slowly but surely, I was able to get close enough to get a good

    Title or Location: La leona Waterfall, Costa Rica
    This hidden gem lies in the heart of a Costa Rican jungle near Liberia. To reach it, embark on a 3 km trek along the riverbank, occasionally wading through the river and pulling yourself across its 50 meter span using ropes. After cross the river number times, the last 100 meter you are swimming upstream. Throughout the journey, safeguarding your camera from water damage by either keeping it dry in a watertight bag or using a water tight backpack.

    Title or Location: Titchwell Reserve Norfolk
    I was focusing on a Marsh Harrier and when I put the camera down I saw this Robin perched on the edge of my table. He just stared at me and patiently waited as I reset the camera. I still had my zoom on and almost fell off my seat leaning to get focus. The images of this bird are among my favourite sets....

    Castle Hill is an amazing location for Landscape and Astro photography. Used a Nikon Z6ii & 20mm 1.8 lens along with a lens warmer plus the Photo Pills planner.The moon was brighter than expected - 5 days old but it actually did us a big favour in lighting up the rocks with the Milky Way core above it. This is the jpeg with no edits.

    Title or Location: Capital Reef National Park, Utah
    I was on a photo workshop in the park with about 8 others. We set up for the night in the Cathedral Overlook campground. At about 3:30 am, the leader got us up and we drove, then hiked to this spot. We took astro shots, then waited in place for a couple hours until early light on the cathedral formations. This is was a merging of the two exposures that created this image.

    Title or Location: Rocky Mountain National Park
    The day before taking the shot, I drove up to RMNP to scout a possible Milky Way shot with Nymph Lake in the foreground. The scouting was successful as it did look like I'd be able to have both the lake and the Milky Way in the shot, so I made a plan to head up there again the next day (July 3rd) and capture what I planned. Prior to heading back up to RMNP, while looking at the map of the area, I noticed another possible location where Fall River would be in the foreground and in my mind, having
