“I had the wonderful opportunity to spend a week with Susan Nel in February 2011. It is extremely fulfilling to meet a professional photographer with equal knowledge and passion and I immediately felt at ease with my limited knowledge. Susan loves working with people and her compassion for other’s emotions are evident in her photographs.
She approaches each situation with grace and to witness her interaction with her clients is something to aspire to. I learned a lot of techniques, some great photography tips and guidelines to approach the post production. What I treasured most of this experience was the way Susan communicates her passion and through evoking your very own love for photography. She shows you that you can learn from yourself too. Her support and encouragement to build your own style of photography is an important trait of a mentor, as she doesn’t force you to follow in her footsteps, but rather walk with her on a journey of discovery. After the one-on-one mentoring with Susan I was excited to take what I’ve learned and really explore photography and discover the wonderful new world that was opened to me.” – Judith Doubell
