Steve-HarrisWow - what can I say? Mike just a big thank you from a retired guy who just picked up a camera a few moths ago with no idea until I stumbled on your You tube video's then decided to take a gamble so glad I did! Thank you so much - practicing everyday and driving the wife barmy!

carla-conradI'm shooting raw images now, which I rarely did before. I understand the histogram better. I had  experience with film photography and was comfortable there. Although I was an early adopter of digital, I never acquired the confidence with digital as I had with film. This is why I started with the Ultimate Beginner's Course...

I'm enjoying 7 Steps to Workflow Mastery but it's work in progress and I've literally had to start over from scratch!

Before I took Mike's course I had been taking photos for a while, and thought I was doing okay but could do with some tutoring. After completing the ultimate beginners course I realised I knew very little about my camera, and the fundamental's of photography - composition, light, exposure etc.

I like your style and how the information is presented, I will be going back over it many times. There is gems in there like you pressing the DOF preview button which I use all the time, and get push back when suggesting it's value to getting the right aperture.

As a learner of photography, I now have a much greater understanding of various parameters e.g., exposure, focal lengths, white balance etc. I am able to make much better use of my camera.

This is the third course of Mike's that I have purchased (I still have to finish 7 blocks of photography). I just feel that his style of delivery and straightforward approach fits what I need perfectly.

The photography workshop taught me to slow down and think about what I want for the photo, what settings are required and move around looking it from different angles.

I was totally overwhelmed with info before and could not disseminate it all - I genuinely feared the camera. Now I'm the boss!!!!

The 7 Building Blocks of Photography Course has made me take more time with my photos and think about the shots instead of just clicking away. I find I take less photos but end up with a lot more quality photos that I'm happy to share.

philip-keysI can now take better pictures and use all the functions of my DSLR - no longer always using Automatic Mode. People now say 'Wow' when they look at my photographs.

Laura-CaptainSo now after taking your "7 Steps to Workflow Mastery - Lightroom Exposed" course I can quickly, easily and confidently process batches of photos by following an efficient workflow process.

david-brownThe whole course has made me think about my photos a lot more before pressing the button. For example being much more aware of the light and how it changes possibly minute by minute. It is going to take me a lot longer to digest all of the information but I will get there in the end.

Mike is a great teacher and takes you though each and every step when taking a photograph. Post processing techniques in the digital dark room is also a key element that is covered. I throughly enjoyed the Lanzarote workshop.

From week 1 this course made a difference to my workflow. I had images all over the place and had tried using several different filing systems which created a very messy Lightroom.

Now, I have one filing system which is organised and easy to use! I no longer import photos I don't want and understanding how to use smart folders and key words has made locating photos so much easier - happy days!

Joe-Selsavage-SPMy goal was to learn to be more creative in my photography and broaden my overall skills and I definitely achieved both of these goals. The exercises and abundance of photo opportunities in the workshop pushed boundaries in many photo areas (landscape, street, night) and allowed me to grow in every area.

I was trapped into looking at too many disjointed videos of what other people can do, and of course, I couldn't do it with any satisfaction. You INVITED me to show what I could do; with your classic confidence and quiet expertise.

The beginners workshop increased my understanding of some basic concepts eg the compressing effect of zooming in and also making minor changes in your position.  I was aware of these in theory beforehand but the workshop really helped cement them.

With Mike's guidance on the beginners workshop in Mudeford, it became obvious to me that I needed to open my eyes to the realms of photographic opportunities around me.

I would be prepared to pay between £150-£200 for this course but I appreciate everyone has to adhere to different budgets. Most practical one day workshops I've been on locally have been priced at around £85. The 7 Steps to Perfect Pictures course is very good value for money and I'll always have the resources to refer to as and when I need to.

Despite having been using Lightroom for some years, this Lightroom course helped a lot with regards to the use of brushes, which I had avoided... and it was also helpful concerning the settings/parts of Lightroom that I don't use because I didn't see any difference using them - same as Mike!

Jac WongAll in all, I highly recommend joining Thor and Mike if you want to have a hassle free vacation and take home with some great pictures and extraordinary memories.

Kay GillI got Lightroom as part of my Photoshop package and had no idea where to start. Without this course I would have left it languishing on my computer unused.

Now I can organise my photos and know exactly where everything is. It has also helped me keep just the keepers instead of having hundreds of pics I know I'll never look at let alone use. As always like you have managed to simplify a very complicated subject.

Excellent videos and notes, which make the process interesting and easy to follow. Looking forward to starting the course on post production next!

Desmond BoddingtonI have mastered most of the tools and creativity and am now going through the course a second time to go back over the bits I was unsure of. I've not had a chance to go out on a photo shoot and upload any images where I can try out these new skills but I will send you some images of future work.

I have a much greater understanding of my camera and the controls. I love working in manual mode over the semi auto modes now, even if it takes longer.

Tammy LegaultI used to use another program because I thought it was easier than Adobe products... but i just didn't know where to start and just got more confused and frustrated. Now my workflow makes sense and finding pictures is a lot easier.

7 Building Blocks has taught me to slow up, consider each block patiently - ultimately to take less images but (hopefully) better ones.

I have been interested in photography for years, but if I am honest I never quite knew what do to with settings etc. Mike made this course so easy to understand. I have l learnt more with Mike's Ultimate Beginners Course over the past six weeks than I have ever done before.

John BlackmanI have been a lightroom user for years, and really just wanted to explore the various options and techniques that I knew I was missing out on. I knew how to use brushes and filters but the fine tuning of their use has made a difference to my workflow.

Michael Garin7 Steps to Perfect Pictures is a much more demanding course than the Building Blocks course because it's akin to learning a new language.  Even if one masters the grammar that's useless unless the vocabulary comes easily in conversation when it's needed.  So for me, the true value of the course was to provide me with the elements that will enable me to become "fluent" over time.

Dawn SimonelliI read a comment somewhere that they could get all this for free on You-Tube so why pay? Let me tell you that you can find lots of free stuff on Lightroom but nothing that can take you from point A to point B in such a methodical, clear, jargon free way.  Mike is a natural!
