Average customer rating for this course:
"I did this course as a follow up to the portrait course I took last year. It's a great follow on and really helps to consolidate everything I learnt previously with the benefit of then taking those skills and applying them outdoors and in urban scenarios. Ricci was helpful as always and and answered questions from the group even if they did not relate to the subject matter. Facilities were brilliant as always. "
"A first-class course – I attended because, as a landscape & wildlife photographer, I wanted to challenge myself to try something new. The day was excellent, with great tuition from Ricci, who really made the complexities (to me, at least!) of the Creative Lighting System seem easy to understand. Lots of practical examples & set-ups really enabled the participants to get to grips with the subject. Big thanks to Ricci, and also to our fab model Raffy, who was incredibly patient with us all!!"
"I learnt so much on this day. The trainer explained everything he did in simple terms and no question was ever too silly for him to answer fully. The location was fine and the trainer had researched where he was going to take us so, even though it was raining we still managed to take some urban portraits on location where he explained the set up and encouraged everyone to learn and ask questions."
"Lovely course, learned a lot would definitely recommend "
"I now see flash as a source of light not simply to 'use when it is dim' great experience."
