“Thank you for all your hard work supporting me/us!


Not only your extensive knowledge about the subject itself was tremendous but the ability to explain the matter in a pleasant way helped a lot. The approach was not only informative but also created a shooting challenge yet without pushing us too much.


Very rarely have I met leaders of workshops before that were emphasizing the creativity of their “students” without trying to direct them into a predetermined path. In my view the Event was a great success both as a learning experience as well as a challenge yet without it becoming a hurdle. On top of that everyone had enough space for ideas without anything disrupting the planning. At least I never had the feeling that I had too little or too much time in any of the segments. From my point of view you deserve nothing but praise.


In addition there was a very good group dynamic between the people on all sides of the lens. Having everyone in the same location for the whole duration of the event definitely made it a much more personal and engaging experience for me. Plus, I was blown away by stylist Karolina’s creativity which added yet another dimension to the location and models.


All I can say is thank you very much! It was a very worthwhile experience for me and much more than I could’ve hoped for.”

“I attended Dan’s exclusive September 2018 French Chateau Nude Photography Workshop. This was my second VIP event organised by Dan, who I rate as the best photography workshop event organiser I’ve ever met. His photographic and especially his lighting expertise are outstanding and his punctual organisation is excellent.


Dan had brought a full set of lighting equipment and was on hand to help the less experienced photographers in a good-humoured manner, but never getting in the way or taking over. The chateau featured a breath-taking plethora of all-weather indoor and outdoor sets.


Dan had organised a great support crew, including Caroline, the magical stylist; Martin, who conjured three course meals and plentiful supplies of beer and wine; and Ivana, who modelled and managed the other models. Photographers enjoyed two relaxed one on one shoots each day (morning and afternoon) over four days, rounded off with a group shoot the final afternoon.


Last but by no means least, here’s a big shout out for the beautiful, professional and versatile models Eliska, Ivanka, Michaela and Suzzi Q, who were patient, hard-working and fun to work with. It was a memorable event that had a really pleasant vibe, and I hope there will be more.”

“I was fortunate to participate in Dan’s ‘French Chateau Nude Photography Workshop’ in September 2018. This workshop was one of the most professional ‘events’ I have ever participated in.


The pre-event information was timely, informative and motivational. The location for the shoot was a beautiful, rustic French chateau with endless inspiring shooting locations both in the chateau and the extensive grounds and outbuildings.


The organisation on-site was truly excellent. We had 4 full days of shooting and everybody (Dan, Ivana, models, chef, hair and make-up) worked tirelessly to ensure that we had a great experience. The models were beautiful, professional, super hard-working and happy to help me (a relative novice) with some creative ideas for each shoot. I achieved better photos that I had imagined possible and I would like to thank Dan and the entire team for organising and executing a truly fantastic event.”
