· “Fantastic course! I went from taking iphone looking shots to near-professional stuff...Ian is a great teacher, very patient and very generous" Walt
“Useful and practical information packed into the well thought out agenda.” Jean
"Lots of very eye-opening information. I came to the workshop with a list of questions and Ian answered all of them without me having to ask. Thanks, Ian, for generously sharing what you've learned in your business experience".. Denise
"This master class with Ian was worth every cent and time invested. Ian covered all the basic portrait lighting techniques, gears and set up but more importantly, the ins and outs of running a successful portrait business. In this increasingly competitive market, where every Joe, Bob and Mary with a DSLR claims to be a professional, it is rare to find a true seasoned professional that is so genuinely interested in sharing all the secrets of the trade that he has amassed during his thirty plus years of photography". Donald
"great introduction to studio lighting techniques and how to take a head shot. As usual, Ian added a bonus by providing us a cliff notes course on business psychology 101 for the emerging pro photographer as well as sharing his experiences as a working photographer-- all very enlightening. Would recommend this class to anyone thinking about getting nto photography as a full time business". Alfred
