    The course content covered all the topics and areas that I needed, and provided me with links to further learning on-line and through print media. The assignments were highly practical, thought-provoking at times, challenging and above all lots of fun!

    From being a former teacher and principal I became pupil and learner and it was a great feeling as I eagerly awaited my tutor’s scorecard and written comments following each assignment! Assignments were marked promptly, professionally presented and always succinct, well directed and offered many points to consider and to be guided on. Thanks for such a tremendous job and for your positive encouragement.

    I began the course with the intent of gaining more skills for a hobby, but now I want to take it up to the professional level. Without this course, I would never of thought of photography this way.

    Without a question this photography course is for anyone who is serious about photography, from the absolute novice to the working Pro. The course is about so much more than just the pictures or how to use a DSLR and it takes you on a comprehensive journey into the world of photography (past, present and the future…) and everything that this entails. If all the tutors are as conscientious and professional as mine then you really cant get better value for money!
