Maine and Vermont feedback has us feeling all warm and fuzzy!

14th November 2016

Here at Light and Land we love to receive all your feedback as it helps us to continue improving the experiences we provide to our guests. However we were all overwhelmed with the responses we received from the group on the recent Maine and Vermont tour led by Phil Malpas and Clive Minnitt…

Hi Phil and Clive, Just had a call from Peter Lewis who could not sing your praises highly enough! He said you were both absolutely exceptional tour leaders and photographers and needed to let us know. WELL DONE ONCE AGAIN!

It is such a joy when we get these testimonials, makes it all worthwhile and it is all down to your hard work. Hope you are home and resting now! Have a lovely weekend.   Emily, manager at L&L, re Maine & Vermont MAV05 2016 14.10.16                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 

I second that gentlemen!! Very many thanks indeed! I called Peter and thanked him. Great work and Thank you again!                          Charlie Waite, founder of L&L re above - Maine & Vermont MAV05 2016 14.10.16                                                                                                                                                          

Many thanks for such an enjoyable trip to New England. I was, and am impressed that Clive and Phil organised the trip to an incredibly high standard. The pre trip information and advice set the tone and standard which continued on. The whole trip was very well thought out, planned, and researched. With a very good, for me, balance of photography and relaxation. I cannot envisage having more thoughtful advice and help during the trip. For example one day when I was suffering from ‘photographers block’ Clive spent a long time with me over lunch clearing my mind and putting me back on track. I only recognize just how helpful this was now, and it worked for me. I wish Clive would publish some of his amusing tales, anecdotes, and experiences! After this trip I cannot sing the praises of L&L loudly enough. My only other wish is for some help with editing software – I have just bought Lightroom. London is too far for me to travel for this. (Peter has since booked on to our Lightroom workshop in Bristol run by Adrian Beasley https://www.lightandland.co.uk/photography-tour-tutors/view/adrian-beasley). Also thanks to you and the office staff who help us to have such a enjoyable time.            Kind regards, P. Lewis.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      

Hope you get chance to rest up following the tour.  I really admire the energy and professionalism of both you and Phil.  You were both ill during the trip but never, ever gave less than 100%.  Amazing!           M. Brett re Maine & Vermont MAV05 2016 14.10.16                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            

Thanks so much again Clive, I had a great time.    J. Patel re Maine & Vermont MAV05 2016 15.10.16                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         

The lovely group!

Hi Clive & Phil,

I want to thank you both most sincerely for yet another wonderful trip. You complement each other so well and together make the adventure so enjoyable and such a learning experience. I'm delighted to have become a little more at ease with the use of filters in coping with difficult lighting conditions. The trip was everything I hoped it would be and am thrilled with some of my images. Again many thanks for all the effort and planning you put into making the tour such a memorable one.                                                                                                        Kind Regards, N. McCormack re Maine & Vermont MAV05 2016 15.10.16                                                                                                                                                  

Many thanks again for a wonderful holiday. I enjoyed every second.       Regards I. Pettigrew re Maine & Vermont MAV05 2016 15.10.16                                                                                                                                                                                                   

Thanks to you both for a memorable trip; I can only hope that my images live up to hope/expectation! Kindest regards to you both and your ‘other halves’; Anita sends her best wishes.   Kindest regards,        K. Schubert re Maine & Vermont MAV05 2016 15.10.16               

Phil's favourite dawn location in Acadia National Park.

Just look at those colours! Spectacular! 

Many thanks again for another one of your great trip and for all the help you gave me so that I could keep to the pace. Best wishes and see you both at the next trip. Have a good one in the Lake District.          L. Poncett re Maine & Vermont MAV05 2016 15.10.16                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              

Clive, Many thanks once again for a great trip. I am now two thirds of the way through the time-consuming 1st stage, i.e.converting individual pics from RAW to JPEG so that I can actually see them on my computer screen; and the results are generally very satisfying (though I say it myself), particularly some of those pre-dawn shoots when the weather had seemed disappointing.                                                     J. Godfray re Maine & Vermont MAV05 2016 16.10.16

Thanks Phil and Clive for being a pleasure to work with and giving the best experiences to all who join your tours. Thanks for the images too! All images are Phil and Clive's.
