    Bryan's a giant teddy bear of a great guy with lots of personality, a huge mountain of experience and one who speaks from the heart.

    Highly recommended

    Yup, hes a damn good chap. I was taught by him before, and I was grateful on how harsh on me. Apparently alot of the people broke down in my class under him, but luck for me it made me a better photographer. I highly recommend people to join his class.

    Cheers.
