from our lovely students - photographers just like you...

I most definitely recommend any Asia Workshops run by Mike and Simon. I back that up by registering for the October 2020 Myanmar Workshop as soon as it was announced...

The course covers many aspects of photography to a level of detail which ensures understanding and did clear up many things I had been unsure about.

Getting images good enough to get enlargements printed to hang on my walls is a real joy. (ok and I must admit when someone compliments me on the photo it is a great feeling...)

UBC gives a first-class grounding in the basics of photography. Being an online course you can go at your own pace but the course is 5 weekly parts and the workload is about right for a week.

This was my first photography workshop and I thought I was an intermediate photographer looking to become advanced.  The workshop opened so many possibilities, I realized that I had only just begun.

I didn't understand manual mode or aperature. I did not look for light and had no clue about really seeing a photograph. Now, I understand these skills but also understand that I need to practice and be patient.

The most impressive aspect of his presentations is that I feel as if he is speaking to me personally. No better videos to watch and LEARN.

In 7 Blocks Mike is very good at putting over things and it's easy to understand. I've learnt how to be patient and think before I press the trigger.

There are loads of 'free' online videos but these are useless without first understanding the building blocks of photography first...

Now, I am more relaxed when taking a photo. I realized that there are some things to take care of. I don't feel "guilty" any more taking a photo of the same place, looking for different approaches.

Mike is a great teacher and very down to earth. "The only stupid question is the one you don't ask" I will certainly be saving my pocket money up for his courses. Cheers Mike

Yes, I would recommend the day to anyone.  Great day for anyone who, like me, is a little shy of taking photos in public places.

The exposure examples ("camera gets it wrong!") were really helpful to move from some rather grey photos to better ones. The shutter speed examples enabled me to get some better examples of flowing water. All together this has put me more in control of my rather complicated camera.

I was concerned that there might be a large number of camera geeks and I would have felt intimidated but Mike emphasized the title of the course and the paramount importance of the photographer.

Fab instructor, very personable, knowledgeable and gives lots of easy to understand, practical, and real world advice. Highly recommend Mike!

 

chris-stratfordA light bulb moment was hearing Mike's advice that we should pre-visualise the photo we want the camera to take, not just let the camera take the photo...

CDTP is a thought provoking exercise that gets you looking at subjects in a different way. Light, shadows, reflections and different angles all now play a more important part in taking photos.  Certainly makes you think more before you press the shutter.

Have a better idea what i'm doing rather than just hoping; Looking at complete picture rather than just the main feature; Understanding more about camera; Taking photos at different angles i.e eye level....

It was also good to meet like-minded people and share experiences and frustrations to know you're not entirely alone in the treacherous yet hugely enticing waters of photography.

What a difference 7 Steps to Workflow Mastery course has made! I now have a full understanding of the lightroom library system and am really enjoying using Lightroom. I did think I had a reasonable image filing/folder numbering system on my PC and a suitable backup process...

This photography experience was a present upon my retirement. I wanted to learn more about photography and this course provided it.

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.

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.

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.

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.
