Jim & Dustin’s simple style and clarity made a huge difference… Not overly technical and also not overbearing….””Very important to me, is how responsive they are to my numerous questions via email – really over and above what they probably should be replying to!””My daughter and I sit through the classes together and it’s fun.”

    Without question the Improve Photography Classes will give you real photography understanding, instruction and guidance done in a motivating and empowering format. Jim & Dustin give you the tools to unlock the “photographer within” giving you the skills to shoot awesome pictures with confidence.

    I spent months reading photography books and looking at “how to” DVD’s, but I found these sources either too specific & complicated, or way too general. My goal was to obtain working understanding of photography while learning how to use my dslr. The Improve Photography Classes have exceeded my expectations.

    Working at my own pace is a huge plus. Jim’s accessibility and response time for my questions and comments has been “spot-on”. Jim’s proven expertise goes way beyond photography basics… you can see from the Class Syllabus, many other topics are taught ranging from light, lenses, post-production, and gear.

    Thanks to Jim and his entire team for creating this phenomenal photography learning experience!!

    I echo Steven entirely!

    These courses have been the best resource I’ve found yet in learning photography and getting to know my DSLR. Before I found Improve Photography I was totally lost and did not know were to start. There is so much information packed in each lesson, yet it is all easy to comprehend. I came away with a wealth of knowledge and have overcome obstacles that I didn’t know how to get around.

    It is extremely helpful having Jim review your pictures so as to know what you have to improve on!

    Many thanks to Jim for following his dream and sharing, so many can benefit from it, and the team for all the hard work they put in!

    The course is a great way to see some things visually, instead of only know them in theory. After most of the modules there is a review day, which has a short test to prove whether you have understood the material you have been taught. I think this is great! However, there are some questions which answers are not very well covered in the videos and you may face difficulties to answer them properly. Also, the videos are not very professional and I think they should be improved in some way, if possible. The language is quite plain, especially for international students, like me. Even if someone is not very familiar with the spoken English language, I believe this would not be a matter. One good thing is that below each video there is a short description that may be helpful in case you missed some things, but as I said some questions in the review day tests should be more covered. Both the instructors are very friendly and they can teach most things in a quite easy way for someone to understand. Although, I think that some things can be explained in more-depth.

    Anyone who thinks that has some kind of basic knowledge should consider take a step into this course.

    I would like to thank both the instructors for making Photography more accessible.
