Your very kind words…
I quite often get lovely emails from people who really appreciate all my hard work. Whilst I never fish for compliments, it really does hit a soft spot when people actually go out of their way to say thank you.
I always just reply to emails with an embarrassing thank you and I never document them. From this month on, I just thought I would copy and paste any new words of appreciation here.
A massive thank you in return for your very kind words. Comments like these really do make it all so worthwhile. Gary

May I just say again that your dedication and knowledge deserve all the true comments we make as viewers.
Well done, a credit and example for us to enjoy and aim at.
I have learned so much just watching your channel. Your passion of the Art is beyond question.
Just a short note to say thanks for this group and your YouTube channel.Watching your videos has inspired my wife to take up photography at the young age of 67.We got her a Nikon D7500 which she is learning to use and thoroughly enjoying it.One thing she really likes about your videos is that you ‘de mystify’ stuff by talking plain English without unnecessarily complicating things.Thanks.Steve
Gary,Wanted to say a big thank you for your inspirational youtube videos. I first found them when I was researching for my trip to the Isle of Skye and the Outer Hebrides which happened in May 2019.Your enthusiasm shines through all your material as well as the in-depth knowledge and understanding of photography you have from your many years as a professional.I am based in a small village called Tollesbury on the Essex salt marsh coastline. The lighthouses at Dovercourt are a favourite location of mine.Unlike some Vloggers of photography on youtube who seem to grow their ego along with their subscribers you always come across as so personable. and humble. Thank you.Best wishes,Derek
My image appeared in the online version of this magazine. I was later informed that it was going into the printed magazine too.
It will be printed in Next months magazine. I will link to it when It comes out
Hi Gary,I came across your profile on youtube and have fallen in love with your work. I have only recently started my journey into landscape photography and already have been able to nab a few great shots – I have learned a tonne off you and have based many of my approaches from your teachings.I just wanted to email and say thanks, you’re a big inspiration. Love your work.If you ever get to travel to New Zealand (my home), I highly recommend it. You would get some incredible photos. Once I get my portfolio up and running, I’ll send you the link and get your input (if you have the time that is of course).Thanks mate,Matt

This is such a great comment left on my Youtube video Alanthe Cannon.
Hi Gary. I recently won a competition with one of my images to be featured in the Friends of the Lake District image I shot of the Solway Firth a while back. I had watched your tutorial on blending a long exposed sea with a crisp sky so after watching that, I was inspired to get out to my coast and capture something with that in mind. Little did I know a few months later it would feature in a calendar for 2021!!
Hello Gary,I wanted to send you a quick note to let you know how much I enjoy your videos on Youtube. They are educational and informative-but more than that RELAXING! It’s a bit of zen in my day and I appreciate you bringing that into my life.Best wishes,Lee (USA)
Just a quick note to say thank you for re igniting my interest in landscape photography and photography in general. I retired from the music industry a few years ago and kinda lost my passion for photos in recent times. My wife and I are heading to Scotland for our anniversary soon and she’s been encouraging me to shoot again. I came upon your wonderful videos on Youtube and love your candor, humor and of course seeing your process and final results. Your Skye videos are particularly inspiring. You’ve helped light a fire again!Anyway, thank you and I look forward very much to more videos from Scotland.Best wishes from Tennessee.Ash N
