Sandra Martin-Amor

London, United Kingdom

The Photography Institute has done a great job with this course. The tone used in the material feels personal like the Tutor is there with the student. I also found it very funny at times yet black and white when required. It was a great balance. My tutor was excellent, I couldn't ask for more. All in all a great experience!

Reepham, Norwich

I’ll be honest when I started with the Photography Institute course I thought that it wouldn’t teach me much more than I already knew. Oh, how wrong I was!!

Even in the first module, I was learning new techniques and methods I hadn’t even heard about before. These instantly helped me improve my shooting and editing. When I looked at the new photos I was producing, I saw the results straight away.
