Definitely worth the money. I didn't know anything about photography but I wanted to start to learn. My sister who is a good photographer recommended Mike's videos. I loved them and wanted to have a better understanding of the things I really needed to know. Now I have them.

Peter TorokfalvyThe value of this course goes beyond the monetary  value as it puts us in control of the expensive photographic gear we use in assisting the creation of memorable images. So, yes, excellent value for money!

When I'm finished with this UBC I will get the 7  Building blocks of Photography. Doing the Focal Length webinar on 6 August. To finish this UBC properly this going to take me bit more than 5 weeks, 3 hours a week is not enough for me, maybe I'm a slow learner....Ha ha ha!!!!

Changing the setting to STANDARD blew me away, along with taking onboard the white balance setting for the light I am photographing the object is in, in my case the shade of my shed. I am gobsmacked, rejuvinated, I was questioning this craft and whether I was cut out for it, but now fired up.

Lots of helpful advice provided in an easy to understand format. Mike provides a useful 'tool' of thinking of light like water which I found made things much clearer and I'm sure others would too.

I have never been a member of a Photographic Society or Club and apart from reading about photography, basically self taught. Now fully retired and having watched many of your instructional videos over and over again, I invested in your UBC. Wish I had done it before. I always need structure to improve which in turn builds confidence I want to take better photos not 'run of the mill'.

Ultimate Beginners Course has everything you need to know to start shooting in manual. And Mike explains everything in a way that's easy to grasp.

I was taught photography in 1961 whilst in the military. It was set in tablets of stone and very formulaic. Throughout life I've just stuck to the formula and produced photographs of record quality because the last thing the military wanted was artistic impression or individualism. 7BB has shown me that artistic impression is not only allowed but encouraged and I can now be individualistic because I'm in charge...it's my picture!

What do you get when you have access to both Mike Browne and Simon Taplin during one of their Asia photography workshops? Lots of expertise, a photography-focused holiday, and lots of laughs guaranteed.

Being in Australia at the time of Covid meant that the exchange rate wasn't friendly. Regardless, I still feel I got value for money in this course. After all if you've spent hundreds or thousands of dollars on camera then it's false economy not to spend the money to learn how to use the bloody thing!

Ultimate Beginners Course took me back to basics and although I knew a lot of the points covered I'd forgotten how they could be applied to improve my photographs creatively.

I like Mike's way of explaining and encouraging.  I talk to my wife about Mike like we are buds at the pub.  I would very much love to go on one of his shooting trips, I think he would be great fun to travel with. Anyone that likes photography and motorcycles is a friend of mine.  And I do really love his very exploitative way to explaining things, like the "shiny" things.  I immediately understand what he is explaining.

7BB allowed me, in stages, to see how I was framing and setting up a shot that has given me much greater understanding of how to critically evaluate what I'm trying to achieve with my shot. What is the image I am trying to portray, where do I want the focus to be.

This is a course which is well worth the money, it has been like learning to drive with my camera, step by step in the right order. It is the single best investment I have made in learning about how to take photographs.

sascha-johnIn the last 6 months I watched all your free stuff,  then invested in UBC and 7BB and studied, learned and practiced photography more than ever in my Life. I had fun in the exercises and fulfilled my challenge to take a picture every day. Sent some to National Geographics...but they don't like them... there must be something wrong with your course!

I can see the improvement in my work. I now shoot 90% of the time on Manual and the adjustments come natural to me...I'm on Block 5 on this second go (I watched all the videos multiple times, but didn't do the work 'til now) and I can feel the difference in how I think.

The way Mike coaches you along your journey in photography will last you a lifetime.

I really appreciated the sense of empowerment from learning 'with' Mike, rather than being front loaded.  I also liked being able to practise at my own pace.  This may be a six-week course but I happily spun it out over much longer - moving on when it worked for me.

Now I'm happy with changing apertures, ISO's and even white balance. it is going take a lot more practice to become confident, but I'll get there.

I found Mike’s videos by accident while searching for basic digital photography training videos. Over the past year I’ve taken 4 of Mike’s courses, I’m happy to share my thoughts...

I'd wished I spent less on camera gear and more on training, and practicing, especially under his guidance!

I am in the third week right now and love every minute of it. I like the way you present the subjects. I also like how you bring in the 7 building blocks to create a photograph.

I muddled along before sometimes guessing at settings never quite sure which to use. Combining the course with You Tube Videos has given me the confidence to believe I may now produce the images I am after.

I'd recommend the course. Mike explains everything really clearly. The videos and materials make everything much easier to understand than trying to work it out my myself.

I understand my camera settings. I understand metering, FINALLY, and how and when to shoot in manual and how and when to use which depth of field and focal length. I'm practicing regularly and enjoying it.

[I would] wholeheartedly [recommend 7 building blocks of photography]. Well, I wish you had been around 40 years ago. My life would have taken a different path had you been so. You teach the basics very well and your enthusiasm is infectious.

Ultimate Beginners Course is the price of a lunch for two at our local posh cliff top hotel and worth so much more than that as it gives you a skill for a lifetime.

My greatest achievement is that I am taking photos again. Not just any photos, great photos. I had my tripod since 2016. but I did not use it till I starting Mike's 7BB course.

If you are someone who is keen on learning photography, if you are an old pro who wants to brush up, or if you are anywhere else in between, look no further than Mike. His YouTube tutorials empowered me to build a foundation of knowledge around how cameras work why they do what they do and how to use the settings and my brain to take pictures.

I think Mike Browne courses are tops - it is hard to get going at 70 all through life, it is hard to learn new things but Mike and the 7 steps make it so easy and fun to do, it is like having him sitting next to you.

Each week I look forward to the next lesson. I found it like having a birthday each week unwrapping (or I should say downloading) the course and then just putting my earphones in and going through it, with Mike at my side.

Of the four photography courses I have completed, the 7BB is by far, the most useful and beneficial, worth every cent or penny! To use a quote from a well-known sporting apparel supplier: "Just do it" there is so much to gain and nothing to lose.
