***** Very consistent course, delivering the fundamentals of photography through examples without getting bombarded with technicalities and infinite theories. All the examples took life during the field-photo-sessions. This course is ideal for beginners who do not want to spend countless hours reading books and reviewing manuals.

***** I must say I was a bit skeptical but after completing the first 2 sessions I have been pleasantly surprised. This course is very competitive and helpful. I took some digital photography classes in college and this course is proving to be more helpful than those classes as well.

***** I always wanted to be able to take photos like a professional. Victor can help you achieve that! I enrolled into his course and acquired a solid foundation in photography. He explained to us all the fundamental techniques and principles of digital photography and then we moved to the practice sessions using our cameras. We acquired the know-how through applying the concepts and techniques into real-life scenarios. He is a great person and photographer and highly recommend his courses.
