Brilliant evening.

REVIEWER: RONALD M.

RATING: 5 of 5

"An excellent evening, a great follow-up to previous speedlight courses. Ricci was, as ever, a brilliant tutor and again, whether one was a professional or a complete novice, the content was such that everybody had something to learn. A big thanks to Jamey-May, the model, who was contracted in on short notice after a cancellation by the contracted model. Jamey was engaging and made for a fun evening."

Seeing the Speed-light in a whole new light!

REVIEWER: Chris W.

RATING: 5 of 5

"Lighting with Speed-lights has always been a bit of a dark art to me! The course built up in micro blocks of theory, practice and built up to the final images , with the fantastic model, Amber. I'm impressed with the fashion images we created. The relaxed course and open questioning style, meant we learned quite a bit, in a short space of time. I made notes, took away the experience of a genre of photography that I hadn't considered, and now have the knowledge to use another tool effectively. "

RATING: 5 of 5

"There was nothing low about this course –it was tremendous on all levels…! Trainers Neil & Ricci were excellent as usual, our model for the day, Amber, was fantastic, and the course content was exactly as I hoped, building from basic concepts up to complex lighting builds. A great course, thoroughly enjoyable and providing inspiration to put the techniques learned into regular practice…!"
