I must say I am deeply impressed by the quality of the course and the flexibility and help of David and of the entire Staff. Feedback is quick and _VERY_ helpful. I learned a lot on many aspects and small details from David. He is a fantastic tutor and teacher. I liked his style, always nice but still at the same time helpful and concrete. He pointed out errors and what I did well. I had to stop the courses for roughly 3 months since I was without a camera for a while, and the entire team was very nice and let me start again now that I am again able to shoot.
For anyone at all levels I strongly reccommend this course. Feedback is tailored to your level so you will learn much! Absolutley love the courses.- By Umberto Michelucci
