After looking through the shots, I think you are a little harsh on him. Now I don’t think he has any business running workshops but he seems a bit better than most of the fauxes out there. His subjects are, well, chavvy and he has no concept of proper white balance but on the whole it isn’t the train wreck we usually see on here. He is attempting off camera light, not very successfully mind you but he is experimenting at least and not proclaiming he is a strictly natural light photographer. I feel a bit sorry for the fat girl in the third shot, looks like the dress wasn’t made in her size and now it looks odd.
