Post by: strontium on April 09, 2015, 01:49:23 PM
Firstly I have nothing to do with this company or do I gain from promoting them.  I just signed up to their course and wanted to share the discount available (runs out on 10th April 2015).

The discount has been running for quite some time now in various forms. I signed up for £29 plus I added 4 additional personalised assignments for an additional charge last year. I initially signed up at the same time as my friend as I have been teaching him photography and thought I'd work through the course with him as it was cheap. The main bulk of the course is fairly basic and easy enough to work through. The personalised assignment at the end and any additional ones added are tailored to your level and are designed to push you outside of your comfort zone in order to improve your photography. The course work is well laid out and detailed enough and Mark and Connie are always on hand to help if needed. Very worthwhile for a beginner but for more advanced shooters it is recommended that u add additional personalised assignments from my experience. I am not affiliated with them in any way either, just my experience of dealing with them and doing the course which I have not yet finished due to other commitments. I have a couple of assignments to complete then my 4 additional ones.

 I paid £66.95 with the additional 4 personalised assignments. I really took myself back to basics and thought of it as a beginner rather than just blast through it thinking i know it all already in order to hopefully improve my photography and get rid of bad habits and laziness which i knew i was letting creep into my workflow out in the field.
 Along with posting images on here and reading the feedback on them, then trying to put any comments and suggestions into practice i feel my photography has improved somewhat even though there was a spell i felt nothing was working and i did not like the way my images were going. I do now feel i have turned a corner and can push on from the learning plateau i was on and going nowhere. This i feel is down to the course and from input on here.

Still some way to go and lots of learning to do.
