My recent Shutter Hub surgery session with Karen Harvey was invaluable. Karen listened to my ideas regarding a long term photographic project and was able to advise me accordingly and give me some more ideas about how else I could approach the project. I now feel far less daunted and have a much clearer idea of how to phase the project and hope to be able to share it one day with the Shutter Hub community.

I’d advise anyone with a project in mind or work in progress to take advantage of these invaluable Surgery Sessions.

Thank you Karen! – Justine Ritchie
