The webinar was extremely interesting and covered a wide range of ideas and techniques using practical examples and experiences. Mike is an excellent teacher communicating his ideas clearly and with the right amount of levity to enthuse all with an interest in improving their images. Highly recommended.

Mike offers down to earth advice about taking better pictures. Technical stuff is kept to a minimum and you are reassured that it is nothing to do with having loads of fancy gear.

I would strongly recommend this 7 Blocks course, even if you think you have a good understanding of photography.  Mike's way of teaching is clear and logical and certainly has given me a lot to think about when taking photos.

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...

This course showed me exactly what I needed for a great picture, (like the one in National Geographic for example.) Those Mike Browne Courses & Webinars make me want to learn more & more, loving the journey to try to get the perfect picture.

This webinar was a great refresher for me with lot of new info for modern day cameras and the way things were explained was so easy to follow too. Thank you Mike, looking forward to the next one.

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.

j-kimberleyHaving been impressed with the 7BB course it made sense to be able to keep track of all these new photos, but my main concern was how to organise my old photos so this LR course looked ideal. I was not disappointed.

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 was able to attend your webinar live, as I live in Australia and would have been on my way to work at the time it was on. I look forward to seeing your next webinar and in the meantime, I will keep practising. :)

I am a lot more confident with the important controls on my camera, also by learnt much more about using my camera and where to find the controls.

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.

I know what I'm doing instead of guessing. Trial & error now has a purpose, because I know why & what I'm doing.  I can create instead of take (and hope) photos with a purpose in mind.

I've nearly always shot in auto mode and hoped for the best and was generally fairly happy. Have only gotten one great photo and lots of 'nice ones' this way in 10 years since getting my DSLR. Now I have a better understanding  of how the camera works, why it gets some things wrong and how to be analytical in making setting adjustments. Early in the course I got plenty of practice deleting the "dud" shots but now I get far fewer "dud" shots to delete.

In 1988 (when I graduated high school in the US), I took a photo class (developer, stop bath, fixer days.)  I had a Canon AV-1 and AE-1 back then. It is something I truly enjoy and have done since then. I feel like I am recapturing my youth.  I am getting much more serious about this hobby - hence the investment in Masterclass in Photography.

The Choreography of Composition webinar was really good. Highly recommend for all levels of photographer, just gets that brain thinking again and for me moving those feet. Thanks again Mike for another awesome webinar even if it is a 4 am time slot here in Australia. Still worth it.

Mike Browne's way of teaching is more like sharing his knowledge, with many examples included. His webinars and his courses are great fun and yet packed with information to improve any budding photographer's images. He inspires and motivates in his own inimitable style. You just want to get out there and put it all into practice! Downloadable notes are a great reminder of what you've been learning.

I have struggled for at least three years trying to learn Lightroom.  I have taken other courses and at the end was no better off.  With your course Mike I found it very interesting and easy to follow.

Before [Masterclass in Photography] I thought I was a good amateur photographer,  but looking back my results for a 'good photo' were pretty low. Now my hit rate has vastly improved and the number of pictures I am "proud of" have increased dramatically.

I am much more confident in how my camera works and what I need to do to achieve the look I want. I do need to practice further until everything becomes second nature, but I am very happy that I now understand terminology that sounded like a foreign language at first.

I have watched Mike's YouTube videos for years, and they started me on my journey in photography. The photography lockdown has helped me so much and given me a sense of community. It also has helped me stay sane during this crazy time. The class was the next step for me, and I really have loved it.

The Masterclass in Photography confirmed to me some stuff I already 'knew' but explained to me how and why it worked, it also gave me plenty of 'oh, so that's how you do it' moments! As a result I feel I have a stronger base knowledge, and have more confidence that the shot I take will be somewhere near what I am trying for!

Just completed the Masterclass in Photography from Mike Browne. I've played with photography for some time without fully understanding what I was doing. This course not only confirmed stuff that I already 'knew', and explained why it worked, but also gave me plenty of 'Oh, so that's how it's done' moments!

Fantastic course, photography takes a lot of dedication and practice, but Mike explains it simply, really good teacher. I would recommend this course to anyone interested in photography, thanks Mike.

Before 7 Blocks I would go out and take loads of photos, now I am choosier in what I shoot it has also slowed me down and made me think more.

The courses have given me strong impulses and I know it will continue to do so in the future. It gives me a great pleasure to learn from the worksheets, videos and webinars and to carry out the examples shown themselves. I notice a positive change in how I handle my camera and how I see the world more and more from a photographer's point of view. And it fills me with joy and pride when I succeed in pictures that I know I would never have made otherwise.
