Getting to grips with macro

REVIEWER: Aidan H.

DATE: FEBRUARY 2020

RATING: 5 of 5

"Neil took us on a day's journey from macro beginners to respectable heights in just a few hours. There was enough for the newbies to get going and plenty for the more experience to chew on. Neil's expertise is such that he passes on real gems of practical photographic knowledge in the one-to-one moments, one of which in my case made the whole day worthwhile - just in those three minutes! Well worth attending - hats off, Nikon!"

Valuable Learnings

RATING: 5 of 5

"When one gets guided by an expert , the difference it makes to one's knowledge is huge and that is exactly what interaction with Neil did to me on this Macro Photography course. Online contents can help but nothing to beat the way Neil conducted the course. Face to face discussion & hands-on practice simply made it easy to understand many aspects of Macro photography. The learnings are going to help me tremendously in building my portfolio."

Getting started with macro photography

"The day was really well structured with plenty of hand-on tasks. Ricci was able to catch everyone's attention showing great practical tricks! I particularly enjoyed the end of the course when speedlights have been introduced to create awesome affects! "

Macro Magic

REVIEWER: Kendra F.

DATE: APRIL 2019

RATING: 5 of 5

"I entered the class with a shiny new macro lens and no clue how to use it, and left having taken close up photographs of strawberries that would make an M&S Food photographer salivate! I cannot believe how much I learned in just one day. Nikon School is hands down the only place I have been to study photography and left with actual, practical skills that are immediately applicable. I’m not drowning in technical jargon and I’ve been able to put the things I was taught into practice. Brilliant."
