Mike Browne Photography Course Reviews
from our lovely students - photographers just like you...
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.

I 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.

On the Lanzarote workshop I've spent a wonderful time with a great professional and I'll probably schedule another workshop with Mike...
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.
I loved the relaxed Lanzarote workshop atmosphere, the banter, the informal way in which knowledge is imparted and interacting with fellow photographers for nearly a week really got the creative juices flowing.
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.
Ultimate Beginners Course is bargain of the century with all the knowledge that you're given - in a way that is easy to understand and not overly technical. Plus the way it's delivered in bite size chunks stops you from being overwhelmed with information.
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.
I would highly recommend the Ultimate Beginners Course to anyone that is starting out and wants a logical sequence of how to move forward taking beautiful photos they can be proud of.
I almost didn't take the Beginner course, but am so glad I did. My photos improved immediately, and more importantly I feel I know how to actually practice to become a better photographer. I appreciate how organized the course is, the printouts are great. Very useful reference.

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.
I had a basic understanding of the 'technical' aspects of photography and camera settings, but the Ultimate Beginners Course has given me a much greater understanding of the 'creative' side of photography.
Since Ultimate Beginners Course I know what the camera controls are for.
Since Ultimate Beginners Course I have completely moved away from the auto settings and now shoot in both manual and semi-auto modes putting me in control of my photography.
Before taking this Ultimate Beginners Course I would spend too much time fumbling with settings, often unsure as to where to start and usually miss the shot...
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.
Before the Ultimate Beginners Course I never moved out of auto. Now I have just done a photo shoot for my daughter all in manual mode and it didn't seem daunting at all. I can't say a big enough thank you!!
Mike's Ultimate Beginners Course on Photography has encourage me to get out and take photographs using the knowledge he has given me over the last few weeks.
I have just received a certificate for finishing the Ultimate Beginners Course on Photography from Mike Browne in England so I am giving a few words about the course.
It's precise, to the point and detailed. It will teach you very quickly how to be proper photography if you want it!
Absolutely worth every penny! Before the Ultimate Beginners Course I was an absolute beginner and knew nothing about photography (other than point and shoot in auto mode). Now, after the beginners photography course I understand so much more about exposure, composition and lighting and no longer have to shoot in auto mode.
There are two main things I got from 7 Building Blocks: 1. Settings don't create a picture - a picture gives the settings. 2. Camera doesn't take the picture - you take the picture.
I definitely recommend this beginners photography course - learn how to use your camera, even if you have owned it for a while. It is eye opening, literally.
If you want to do more with your photographs and learn the basics of lightroom 7 Steps to Perfect Pictures is perfect. Thanks for a great course!

Been following and learning from Mike's Videos and Newsletters for some time. Very enjoyable and comprehensive lessons.
After 7 Building Blocks I've learned to think like a photographer.

7 Building Blocks is the best photography course on the market.
This beginners photography course has improved my knowledge of photography and the limitations of a camera irrespective of price or sophistication. I know the reasons why I take poor to mediocre photographs, all that's left to do is practice, practice practice!
The Ultimate Beginners Course is well worth the money. It is easy to follow and well planned.
Before the Ultimate Beginners Course I didn't have any sort of system, now after, I can look and think a lot better about what I am doing when I take my camera in the hand.
