Average customer rating for this course:
"This training day with Neil on Urban Portraiture, was my third session with Nikon Training, and incidentally with Neil. Although the rain eventually stopped outdoor shooting, moving inside allowed Neil to explain, with his usual enthusiasm, all of the various flash and studios lighting setups. Regi is an amazing, and patient model. Looking forward to the next course."
"It was a very useful, hands on course and a fun day. I learned a lot about speed lights. I was able to try the newest cameras and various lenses. We had a very nice professional trainer who explained everything well and answered all of our questions. I really enjoyed this day and I definitely want to go to more Nikon School courses. "
"Very good course; I learnt a lot! I am no longer scared for Speedlites :). I enjoyed the course very much and found it releveant and highly useful. Tom pitched the course at the right level as I came away wanting to try the techniques I learnt. Will be doing other Nikon School courses!"
"This course is very helpful for learning the finer points of using Speedlights to enhance your images. Neil Freeman, who is a true Guru in the use of the Nikon Creative Lighting System, delivers the course content in an informal and friendly atmosphere which makes all the technical aspects easy to understand."
"Another excellent course led by Neil Freeman, who gave a detailed insight into the theory behind portraits, followed by portrait shoots both inside and out with professional model Raffaella. This workshop has taken my portrait skills to a new level and enhanced my portfolio."
