The ultimate beginners course is definitely value for money. I bet I watched literally dozens of videos on Youtube for free before signing up, and although they were always very informative, and often useful, the more structured learning techniques used in the course worked far better for me personally.

At Camera's Don't Take Pictures in Winchester no question was too elementary, no experience too mundane. At the end of the day, I was freshly invigorated and committed to my photography.

I would recommend UBC to any beginners as Mikes approach guides you step by step in small chunks.

I have completed a number of online courses through Mike's company but the opportunity to discuss things and to approach Mike and others for helpful hints or answering questions really helps build confidence.

As a teacher/coach myself, I really appreciate how Mike clearly outlines what I need to know as a beginner photographer and simplifies the information in an easy-to-understand manner.

I had a wonderful time at the Cameras Dont Take Pictures day at Winchester with Mike. His morning seminar was informative and inspiring. His style is very down to earth and he explains things in such an uncomplicated way.

I had an amazing time with Mike and all the others at the beginners workshop in Mudeford.

Before taking this photography course I was more snapper than photographer. Occasionally I'd surprise myself and get a nice photo and put it down to dumb luck. Now I find myself more in charge of the final outcome when I press that shutter release.

I recently completed the Ultimate Beginners Course, and what an inspirational and well structured course this is. I used to have a film camera way back when, but then that format practically became extinct and so did my photography.

Learning about exposure control will make a great difference to my photography.  We also learnt about focal length and composition, which were important elements to taking better photographs.

Thank you, Mike for the most comprehensive yet easy to follow Photography courses online! Your videos on Focal distance and Depth of field helped me understand Photography on a much deeper level. I recommend your courses to anyone looking for a one stop resource to learn the essential skills in Photography...

121 photography training was an excellent day. Owing to poor memory I am probably an unusual client, and was concerned that the day would leave me  perplexed (as have other well meaning instructors), but Mike was very reactive to my wishes and it all went very well.

Just completed the 7 Building Blocks course, love the way Mike breaks everything down to bit sized pieces, really helped me absorb the info.

My initial thoughts were that the course was a bit expensive for a collection of videos, much like many available free on the internet but going through the week 8 videos I realised just how much information I had picked up due to the structured nature of 7 Blocks.

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 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 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.

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.
