This is my eighth consecutive course and PTO never ceases to provide me with motivation and inspiration.
Morocco was another full programme with lots to learn from stars like Damien Lovegrove and the usual relaxed and invigorating mix of fellow snappers excellent hotels and a fantastic last night bash.
Our 'cultural' excursion into the mountains was amazing (despite grotty weather) over one of the most exciting roads I've ever travelled. Marvel equally at the coach drivers and the attempts to shoot landscapes in the rain from a moving coach with an H1D! At least there was no film bill.
I'm impressed by all the speakers. I want to take advantage of it all - the new ideas, seeing what other people do - then I want to put them into practice in our wedding business.

PTO is the photographic highlight of the year for me. It beats any seminars by any other organisation anywhere in Ireland or the UK hands down. It is full of information, inspiration, motivation and represents tremendous value for money. You pick up so much in new techniques and great ideas throughout the week that you benefit enormously from attending. As soon as I know the dates they are in my diary before anything else!

PTO has to be the best fun anyone can ever have with their clothes on!
Regular PTO Speaker
I have to admit to being concerned as a first timer but my fears were soon eroded by the friendliness of all concerned.
If you are tired of shivering in a British winter there is no better way to catch a few warm ‘rays' and learn as well, so attend PTO for a bit of ‘fun in the sun'.
A terrific opportunity to meet like minded fellow photographers, who are keen to share their experience with delegates either by the pool or bar! Or you can simply attend the myriad of lectures from some of the top names in the industry. PTO is well worth the investment that is why the SWPP & BPPA are proud to support the event

Thanks PTO. Worth the fee to go without all the other things that have fired me up. PTO delegates are so giving with help and information.

I've been attending PTO on an ad-hock basis right from the start and always recommend it to photographers who are in the early stages of their careers. As a photographer-turned-journalist I can see the immense value this course has and full credit must be given to George, Glenys and the rest of the Dawber family for the efforts they put into each and every year's event. Highly recommended.

I seem to say - the best ever each year PTO is a phenomena!
This was my first time on PTO and it exceeded all my expectations.
PTO launched my career nearly 20 years ago and I have never looked back! I can remember being terrified that I wouldn't know anything and then meeting lots of people in the same boat, all of whom have remained friends ever since!
Considering how many now famous photographers got their initial inspiration from past PTO events, perhaps the final word should come from Malcolm Cole, a non-professional from Swindon.

I made such wonderful new friends and had an absolute ball as well on PTO.

PTO offers the best networking and sales opportunities he has ever had.
