I highly recommend spending a day, or even two, with Mike Browne.  Sure you can watch the videos, but in my opinion the only way to begin to grasp the nuances of what goes in to creating a photograph (the soft skills) is to actually spend time with a professional photographer...

An amazingly excellent course - so simply set out yet gives full understanding of the complex subject of photography. I have really enjoyed doing this course, especially because the area in which it is set is familiar to me...

I would without any doubt 100% recommend Mikes course's to any one, not just beginners. I’ve just completed the 7 building blocks of photography... I used to think because I knew how to use the settings on my camera, I should be able to take a decent photo, so how come I just wasn’t getting photos that stood out or made me proud. I tried to blame it on the fact I just wasn’t the creative type.

I have searched a lot online for composition and light, there isn't much content on these topics when compared to the content on gear. Really enjoyed the course.

I can't wait to put these lessons into practice. Thank you.

Masterclass Review

I have been using film cameras for many years especially medium format cameras, and thought "I know about photography, how the cameras work, composition etc etc, manually developing and all that", so why buy this course?

I had read many books on photography but to be honest they were still, bland and a flat way of learning. So when I watched the preview video of this course, something made me buy it. And wow, am I glad I did...

The Masterclass is a superbly structured course delivered with enthusiasm, panache and humour. The medium is used in an extremely effective fashion, the bite-sized videos focused and clear and the lessons leading the viewer logically through the procedures for mastering the camera and the considerations for improving the photography...

Yet another truly amazing photographic course from Mike. This is the course to choose if you have just picked up a camera or like me just want to go over all the basics to keep everything fresh in your mind. All sections of the course, any there are many, are fully explained in non techie language for anyone to understand. Absolutely worth every penny and is the only course you will need to start taking your very best images.

Superb, inspiring and enjoyable course. It helps you with a solid base of practical knowledge and it stimulates you to experiment with light, your camera settings and composition.

Things like focal length, depth of field and choice of lenses for different situations became clear for me. And now that 'fuzzy background' (buket) is now achievable instead of by chance.

The course has helped alot even though I have been taking pictures for a while, your excellent explanations and YouTube films have given me a lot better understanding of photography - and a bit more confidence, very enjoyable.

Also as local to you, I can relate to the locations.

Mike is an excellent teacher. He illustrates his points with tons of examples. If you pay attention, it is impossible not to learn. The webinar I attended was a right-sized chunk of knowledge that I can practice on my own before going back for the next lesson.

Highly recommended.

Mike 'strips back' the techniques of picture taking and creates thought provoking ideas to enable you to improve your photography both in terms of developing your understanding of the basic use of the controls on cameras and more importantly looking at the world through a photographer's eyes!

sharon-mcquillanAfter completing 7 steps to workflow mastery I purchased the 7 steps to perfect pictures so I can learn how to use the program properly.  After that I will go back and do the 7 Building Blocks.  Then one day I may travel to England and take a full day with Mike Browne.

I was totally new to DLSR photography and bamboozled by all the options on my new camera.  The course was a revelation and very encouraging. The combination of videos and worksheets works very well - it feels very personal and non judgemental.  I have learnt so much. I do need to go back and revisit elements and I do need to do more practice...

I have been a photography enthusiast for many years and already had knowledge of the concepts in Masterclass in Photography.  Nevertheless, I learned a lot.  The course made me slow down and really think about its content.  As a result I have a greater sensitivity and more confidence in the way I approach photography.

Mike Browne is very clear and simple in his explanations concerning photography.  The tutorials are also interesting in that he shows examples and goes into the field.  The best was when he explained how to calibrate monitors. I could not understand how it was done until that tutorial. Thanks.

kevin-morgan-3Before I was going though all the different setting and getting confused. You have to learn your camera before applying what Mike has taught. It is because he such clear instructions that you realize its really understanding how to set up the camera for a situation.

All cameras are different and it's taught me what I can and can't do with my camera and to work it better.

From being influenced by other people's preferences and styles, I am now happy to "do my own thing" and take photos that I like, rather than what I think others will like. I have proved in the past that my style is not what the majority of folk like, but now I can gladly say "tough, I like it". I'm also more content to experiment with exposure, focus, composition etc.

Frank-BlahutaThis online course has provided an approach to using Lightroom that is far more structured and efficient than my previous workflow process. I was unaware of the shortcuts and tools available within the software that could really speed up and more importantly standardise the way that not only post process my images but also focused me on getting things right in camera.

It's viewed as remote learning and some people still like closer to home but Covid changed that a bit. I like your way because every one is equal and level playing field. So yes I will and do tell about you. My reaction is learn the camera first then go out there but only time and lots of practice will nail it.  What lens you pick is important it decides the type of photography style, so I'm a 27m to 258 man...

For me it was absolutely value for money.  I now have worksheets and notes which I can watch and refer to over and over (slow learner) and because of my time constraints just now that suits me very well.  Your style of teaching suits me down to the ground and I find my understanding of some of the tricky issues has improved a lot.

Was very wary of 'internet' photo courses, researched Mike and he had a good following with great feedback. Took the plunge. So glad I did, there were so many gaps in my basic knowledge and that was stopping me for getting the rewards for the work I was putting in.

Being able to find my way around my camera has given me the confidence to go out and attempt to take pictures in environments that before Masterclass in Photography I wouldn't have considered. Masterclass in Photography has taken away the panic and headaches caused by not knowing how to control exposure. It has left me concentrating on composure and lighting which are my weaknesses but I am working on them in your 7 building blocks course.

Thank you Mike, I always enjoy your tutorials, you have an amazing way of keeping it interesting and you explain things so well.

I look forward to seeing your next webinar and in the meantime, I will keep practising. :)

I've always enjoyed listening to and watching Mike on his videos and in the Photography Locked Down competitions held. He has a natural, easy-going way of teaching people and helping them gain knowledge and understanding about the world of photography. He cares for those he teaches and is with. I would encourage every one to take any of his courses and see for themselves how true this is.
