What they say:
This was by far the best course I have taken! – Joe C.
Better than ever expected. This course has taken me from zero knowledge to understanding how a huge amount of work goes into even one promo shot in a catalogue. This course does not hold back or sugar coat the work behind the great photos or give you constant reassurance – it honestly teaches all areas of the experience from taking better photos for your own benefit through to what the most professional client would require. I’m very grateful for Charlie Borland to be so helpful and present in such a lovely manner it makes the experience very rewarding and easy. -Michelle C.
I’m not quite finished getting through all of the video but what a tremendous amount of work you have gone through for this course!
