  3. Sarah Atkinson


    I found this course really excellent and useful. I would recommend it to anyone interested in learning the basic to advance at photography and proper use of it.

  4. Isobel Hussain


    Well designed course that can be easily understood by beginners as well.

  5. Louise Curtis


    I had zero knowledge on photography before this course and the word “advance’ was kind of intimidating for me. However, the course was designed in such a way that I could understand advanced rules and techniques without any pre-requisites.

  6. Holly Day


    Okay. This course was an Eye-opener. Courses like this makes us photographers realise that there are so many things yet to learn. After completion, I enrolled in “How to attract butterfly to the garden”. Hope this course is also as resourceful as this one. Hoping to take some really nice pictures of a butterfly for exhibition after these courses.

  7. Olivia Miller
