Thank you for doing such a professional job on the photography for my holiday cottages website. In these difficult economic times, you do have to stand out from the crowd and the quality of the photographs help me to do that. Bookings for this year are up on last year so many thanks again.

Hi Martin

Just a quick note to say how well the calendar has gone down. It's not yet the end of January and it's already sold out! This is the earliest this has ever happended. Would have had more printed if I'd know how popular it would be.

Thanks again for your professionalism and generosity in donating these fantastic images to FLD. Hope we can work with you again sometime.

Kind regards
