Student Testimonials

“Wow. A lot of bang for my buck.”  ~Lara

“You are answering complicated questions in terminology and directions that are very easily understood.”  ~Maggie

“I’ve followed my camera’s instruction booklet by selecting a white piece of paper to do this, but never had any luck. Now I know why. Thanks so much for taking some of the mystery out of photography!”  ~Vicki

“It’s 100% useful to do this homework: take a really good photo and learn it step-by-step. What is right, what is wrong, what can be changed to improve the shot, etc. For an amateur and learning photographer it is extremely important. Thank you very much!”  ~Natalya

“Simple, applicable, useful. Thank you!”  ~Sue

“Wow, I have learned so much! Thank you for breaking down my tree picture for me. I had no idea how it looked as a histogram…I just knew that this particular photo turned out well. Thanks again!”  ~Ellen

“Thanks again for a very clear, concise explanation of something that can make our pictures even better. I truly like your step by step breakdown, it makes it very easy to follow and understand.”  ~Jeannette

“Wow! What a difference!”  ~Anita

“You seem to be answering all the questions I have been asking about taking photos with my new camera. As usual, it’s finding the time to go through it in detail and putting it into practice. Thanks so much for taking the time to pass on your knowledge and experience.”  ~Tialys

 “Very constructive, certainly shows how a simple procedure can really improve a product.”  ~Ron

“I love the way you explain things, it makes it seem so much easier. I just recently got a SLR camera and am still struggling with AV, P etc settings and depth of field issues. Thanks so much, you are a real teacher.”  ~Jeanne

“Very helpful! Short, sweet and to the point…”  ~Marge

“Thanks Mike – that’s incredibly helpful. Your suggestion to ‘meter on the sky’ I had never considered doing before, but it’s something I’m going to do in future. It’s shocking how little of the digital camera’s features I actually use – for example, following your excellent advice about setting the white balance, I’ve just started to do that every time I use the camera. My latest product shots look very much better because of it.”  ~Sally

“You have inspired us at our shop to take some pretty good looking pictures if I do say so myself. We’ve received lots of feedback and all are positive. Thank you again for all your hard work…We really do appreciate it!”  ~Christine
