I have absolutely loved this course.
The Photography Institute has been an ideal course for me to complete as a working mum because it's not too lengthy.
However, I have gained so much knowledge and understanding of not only the art of photography itself but also what my own photography style is. I intend to pursue the advanced modules available in the future to further build my knowledge and skills as a photographer.
My tutor Justin has been an amazing support with helpful feedback on each of my assignments and would answer any questions I had regarding either the assignment or other photography-related questions.
I would highly highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to gain more knowledge and understanding of what really goes into the art of photography or to anyone who wishes to pursue a career in photography.
I believe my skills as a photographer and sole trading business owner will continue to grow and improve because of this course. Thanks guys!!
I signed up for this, not expecting much. I already had regular work in the industry, I had been shooting fully manual and was happy with my work, but I signed up anyway.
I managed to complete the course in 11 months while working 2 jobs on top of the photography work that was coming in, along with helping with a newborn baby in the house and a 3-year-old.
Now, after completing the course, I can say that I have learned lots. I have much more confidence approaching prospective clients, I have a lot more confidence in my work, and I learned a lot more about my camera and efficient ways to get better results. I am really delighted I did the course, and I am now looking at the advanced modules.
All I can say is if you're hovering over the button, sitting on the fence, wondering if you should sign up or not, do it. It's not something you'll regret.
This course has changed my life.
I have not only enjoyed the actual material itself, but I also learned to discuss the topics and get feedback from George Seper, who was thoughtful, very helpful and direct. It kept me moving forward on the right path, and now the hard work begins where I am going to take my journey towards becoming a professional photographer.
The motivation and the ease of using the system to move forward made it so very easy for me to get through the course. I wouldn't have changed this experience for anything! Thank you so much, Photography Institute and George. This was the best investment in myself and my passion that I could have made!
If anyone is looking at this course and not sure, I say that there is no better place to come to get the knowledge you seek!
