from our lovely students - photographers just like you...

I certainly understand the controls on my camera so much better than before Ultimate Beginners Course  and the inner relationships of the big three. Starting out with manual mode is a brilliant approach as it really helps you understand how everything works.

Faced with the "camera doesn't take pictures" problem, I stepped up to 7 Building Blocks of Photography. Wow, what a difference it made to my mindset. Instead of shooting and hoping, I started thinking through the shots systematically.

Mike is a great mentor. His workshops are very well researched and perfectly prepared. I had a great time and a "fantastic vacation". And in addition my photography improved!

 7 Building Blocks has made me think my photography through and I have more confidence shooting in manual.

I feel this photography course it is value for money.  It certainly helped me feel more organised and confident with my camera and gave me the motivation I needed to just "get out there and have a go".

I like the non judgemental tone of the course and Mike's enthusiasm and gentle pushing to achieve the part of the course. I considered myself and experienced photographer before the course, now I consider myself a confident photographer.

I have just completed The Ultimate Beginners Course and all I can say is don't think about it JUST DO IT. I was a little apprehensive at first I have watched loads of Mike videos and enjoyed them all but I was still breaking out in a sweat at moving off auto on my camera...

I cannot tell you how well pleased we both are with the way and tact Mike uses in his videos. It's like he is right there in our living room talking to us about photography.

Hans-J-RodingI have been taking pictures for the last 50 years and been doing ok. But after having learned Mike's 7 Blocks, I finally, after so many years, realised what I had been missing to take really good pictures.

Mike emphasizes that the type of camera is not important, it is the person that counts. Highly recommended.

Yes, I think the course is good value for money. Initially it seems expensive but after gaining some real insights into exposure, depth of field, composition, etc. etc. my images must and will be better.

No disrespect to Adobe's tutorials, but I have learnt more from Mike on this occasion, which has certainly improved the way I take pictures...

I am using manual mode exclusively. I feel I am getting more in control. I need to practice more. I know I have a lot more to learn especially composition.

I recently completed the Ultimate Beginner's Course and if I could give it more stars, I would. It's an incredible amount of information for the price and it's so easy to learn, even if you know nothing about photography.

Ultimate Beginners Course is taught in a simple, friendly and effective way. Lots on the worksheets and the tasks move in a logical format. Already there are improvements that can be seen and I was controlling the camera in a way I haven't before.

You teach in such a way that after you finish a lesson you want to put everything into practise and has you look forward to the next lesson. I was actually disappointed after the last lesson, thinking I had nothing to look forward too the next week. I want to carry on learning.

Mike's way of coaching the art and science of photography makes you actually understand how to figure out camera settings and compositions.

7 Steps to Perfect Pictures has made my work time quicker, and not so frustrating to do. Much more happier with my pictures, and that I actually know what to do and what the tools can do - this saves me from a lot of frustration.

Mike's Ultimate Beginners Course filled all the gaps left from the college courses, I'm still practicing both the exercises and the suggested photo shoots to really lock it all in place in my brain and make it second nature.

michael-maloneyThis course is very much worth the money because of the way you teach it. You're right about looking around YouTube and trying to figure it out on my own, with all the video out there it would have taking me a lifetime to figure this all out.
