Mike Browne Photography Course Reviews

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

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, but by using Mike's new methods, those processes have been greatly improved too.

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.

I have completed a number of online courses through Mike's company but the opportunity to discuss things and to approach Mike and others for helpful hints or answering questions really helps build confidence.

Cameras Don't Take Pictures was a very useful and enjoyable workshop, probably for those who are not complete beginners but have at least had a go at making better and more interesting pictures.

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.

lisa-1It was very out of my comfort zone to share, as I feel so novice, but it was a very simple shot I really liked.  That was actually huge for me...just sharing something.

Learning about exposure control will make a great difference to my photography.  We also learnt about focal length and composition, which were important elements to taking better photographs.

stuart-maxwell-1Great content on both the online workshops and 1 day course. I would urge anyone thinking about significant up to do it. You will gain so much more understanding of photography. Well done Mike.

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.

Peter-SelfieMy time with Mike helped refresh my approach to achieving the images I see in my mind's eye. I really appreciated his patience & support in walking through the image construction process with me. I particularly valued his tips on the detailed interpretation and use of histogram information in ensuring  desired results.

I certainly understand the controls on my camera so much better than before Ultimate Beginners Course  and the inner relationships of the big three. Starting out with manual mode is a brilliant approach as it really helps you understand how everything works.

Faced with the "camera doesn't take pictures" problem, I stepped up to 7 Building Blocks of Photography. Wow, what a difference it made to my mindset. Instead of shooting and hoping, I started thinking through the shots systematically.

I feel this photography course it is value for money.  It certainly helped me feel more organised and confident with my camera and gave me the motivation I needed to just "get out there and have a go".

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.

Hans-J-RodingI 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.

DerekI really liked the format of 7 Building Blocks. The mix of text, videos and worksheets each complemented the other. I also appreciated the summary videos at the end - these brought everything together and by this time I was able to see how the ideas had developed over the weeks.

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.

Cyril-SieberhagenI 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.

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.

Daryl-MeredithUltimate 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.

Beverly-GiudiceI 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 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.

michael-maloneyThis course is very much worth the money because of the way you teach it. You're right about looking around YouTube and trying to figure it out on my own, with all the video out there it would have taking me a lifetime to figure this all out.

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!!

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.

Øystein-ThorsenThere 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.

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!

Dave-PlantCredit has to go to Mike for his down to earth method of teaching. It is very much an enthusiastic user explaining how it can help rather than a software engineer trying to explain how it works.
