I was accompanied by two aspiring photographers - one born in Penang, one a first time visitor and a frequent visitor over 20 years, The walk gave the photographers invaluable insights into many aspects of photography garnered from David's knowledge and skills. His Penang knowledge led us to people and places that two of us had often passed but not actually seen. He also clearly had personal contact with many of the people and places that we visited, much enhancing our morning.

Been a fan of Dave’s work for a while, I was very glad to be able to do a photo walk with him whilst I was in Penang. It was a wonderful experience. Dave was very patient with showing me how to use my DSLR in manual mode, giving tips and advice about composition, framing, creating stories and taking your time to find the right shot. He never rushed through anything and gave such valuable feedback. Although I’d been to Penang before, the photo walk gave me a new view of Penang. Dave showed me places I’d never even known, visited food vendors that were friendly and produced top notch food and allowed me to see some parts of hidden Penang. He was very knowledgeable about the history of Penang, it’s architecture, history behind different shophouses and the culture of Penang. The best part would have to been visiting the fishing boats in the morning and capturing the fisherman in action. Something I would’ve never seen on my own.

My husband came across this walking photography tour while researching stuff for our holiday to Penang and suggested that we do the tour, I am so glad that we did, it was a fantastic tour. David was very friendly and helpful etc, especially to me, as I am only a beginner in photography and never really used a camera without using the auto function by the end of the tour David had me taking photos using all the manual functions, if you get the chance to do a walking photography tour with David, you should do it.

David is a very friendly and knowledgeable guy. It was great fun to do the photography 1:1 tour with him. Streetphotography was always​ a bit difficult for me. He provided me with new concepts, and techniques. I learned a lot about planning the story, reading the light, anticipate moments and had good fun while seeing Penang from a different angle. Even my wife had good fun, joining us on the shoot-out. Thanks for this experience David!
