feels rather rushed and needs more details on actual process would be handy , ok course if you have some knowledge of how to use a dslr , but maybe not if your a total beginner ..

What a course. Great, easy to understand teaching. Great tutor who makes learning easy. The lessons actually stick in your head. You can easily take as much or as little as you want from this course. Best choice available.

Dean16 May 2021

Really great course!! Definitely better than any youtube video's that I have seen. I have grown throughout the course with the tips and expert advice he has given.

Louise6 April 2021

Many thanks. I learnt a lot from this course. I have done the modules, gone out to shoot my images, edited them - but then gone out again and again focusing on different aspects to try and get a full understanding. I also sent Matthew some of my images for some constructive criticism which he gave me feedback on. It is well worth doing.

Bob18 March 2021

Mathew has a great deal of enthusiasm which comes across. Some good learning points here which I will use in future works.

Annie26 January 2021

Very good class to follow. Everything is well explained and the teacher makes it easy to understand. One of the best I have taken.

Malcolm21 January 2021

I have a fair bit of experience as a photographer so a lot I already knew, but I found so many tips and have already improved my landscapes and look forward to further doing so when our restrictions ease. Moving the histogram to the right has brought great results. Thanks for a great course and would be interested in any more that you have produced.

Ronald19 January 2021

Thomas10 January 2021

The content was highly repetitive and presentation was very quick. The repetition drew my attention away from the new learning in each video.

Zala27 October 2020
