Johan, in 1998 and 1999 you taught me a heck load in photography. Old school, when we had film and could not afford to make mistakes. I will be always grateful, as I have learned so much from you. As the Manager and later owner of the Photo Quicks in Namibia, I can honestly say that any person doing your courses will prosper. I use the techniques you taught me so much, even as a retired photographer now. Thank you very much for all you taught me. Niqui.

"Thank you very much for the training, I really learnt a lot and I look forward to more future training programmes with you. I usually explore Namibia a lot with my family and the skills I learned will now assist me to be able to use the camera, on previous trips I would carry the camera with and rarely ever use it. Thanks once again and looking forward to more training programmes in the future.💯"
