Client’s analysis of 2 Day Wedding Course

June 23rd, 2011

Here is a client’s view of the latest running of our 2 Day Wedding Course.

The course was exactly what I’d hoped it would be

May 23rd, 2011

Dear Karen

I just wanted to pass on my sincerest Thanks to You, Mike, David & Victoria.

I came up for the 2 day Portraiture course on the 19th May, and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. The course was exactly what I’d hoped it would be and more.

The tutors were so friendly and helpful and made me feel so relaxed. Even when I didn’t understand something they made me feel really at ease and helped me understand the issues I was having.

Before I came my weaknesses were Composition and using Exposure Compensation – now I can happily say that I am not afraid of these anymore! David taught me to really push the exposure and I can’t believe the difference it has made to my images.

I have booked onto the “lighting for little ones” course with Victoria in August and I can’t wait to get back up there!

Thanks again

We were emailed this write-up of our Wedding Portfolio Builder course today, thought it would be great to share what the day was like from a student’s point of view


March Wedding Courses

March 18th, 2011

Well, our courses started up again recently after a 3-month break for Xmas and the winter, and we’ve gotten off to a great start in the last 3 weeks.  One wedding portfolio builder, a 2-day, and a 4-day workshop later, and we have 36 happy clients and new friends, all keen to progress in the world of wedding photography!   Here are some of their words from follow-up emails:

“I’m still buzzing from the course and I hope to keep the momentum going whilst juggling the responsibilities of family life, which is probably my biggest challenge.  The course has given me a real boost and has inspired me to be excited about photography again, not to mention the confidence to get out there and do it!!!   hanks again for all yours and the Trained Eye teams guidance and teaching, it was worth every penny.  Best wishes, Sarah.”

“Please can you also pass on my thanks to Mike and team. It was a joy to be trained by such authentic people who were all so passionate and open. I learnt so much in two days I need to download some of it quick, just to clear space for the day to day stuff.  Many thanks, Lee.”

“Just a big thanks to all involved in the 2 day wedding photography course,14th and 15th.I think the amount of information you pack into two days is phenominal.The venues for the course itself and the shoots are perfect.  Looking forward to booking a portfolio builder asap!    Regards, Ian.”

“Thanks for the info and also for a great course this week. You have a great program and a fantastic team of talented people (including your goodself!) and you have all helped me re-think my photographic approach! Life without flash!!! I love it!   Take care, Baz.”

Academy One 2 One Session

February 4th, 2011

I had a great one-2-one session with one of our Academy clients today. During the course each client has a day’s worth of one-2-one time at the studio to develop specific areas. John and I focused on post production today and here are some of my favourite images after we had finished editing. All the best, David

Comment About The Portfolio Builder Course

August 6th, 2010

Here is some feedback about the Wedding Portfolio Builder Course from Gemma. Our courses are very practical and it is always great to see the results taking shape in the ‘real world’ of wedding photography. Well done Gemma!

“I attended the wedding portfolio course at the end of July and I just wanted to say thank you, it was a fantastic day, I learnt alot and got some great ideas.  I photographed a wedding last weekend and was very pleased and excited about the images I produced.  I wouldn’t have been able to do so without the ideas and tips from the course! I will send you my website link when up and running! I hope to do another course with you in the future.  Thanks again Gemma”
