Quotes

...As Richard Compton, the HHA president, states in the introduction: "Historic houses, castles and their gardens are part of the character of Britain. Even before Downton Abbey - filmed at an HHA house - they were the most popular attractions bringing people to the UK"
...his teachers recognised his artistic flair, he said, and he dreamed of attending the then Cultural Training Centre's School of Drama in St Andrew. "Even the teachers recognised I had such qualities, an artistic flair" Beckford said
"The tourists are coming, but they are not stopping in Falmouth, they just move on to other parishes for tours" said Fitz Campbell, a 72-year-old senior resident of the historic Georgian town
His advice to aspiring photographers is, "Don't get into photography for the money - do it because you love it. Once you love it, people will see it and be willing to pay for your efforts. Also, be humble, be diligent, be thankful for what you have. Evolve with the task at hand and be the best you can be."
