What’s the online program all about?
Think of it as a new photo class every month with:
• ongoing critique
• ongoing group support through a private Facebook group for Members only
• and a monthly critique of member’s photos at the end of the month.

We focus on creating a fun and positive environment while encouraging you to step out of your creative comfort zone. You’ll get direct feedback from instructor, Harry Nowell, as well as be able to interact with other students in the program. All you need is access to a computer, Facebook and a desire to learn.

“So far I have learned and grown far more than I could have imagined an on-line course could provide.

[My photos improved over the last year…] It’s all thanks to you, the course and the forum!  I know that I wouldn’t have learnt as much just taking a class here and there. For this, I can’t thank you enough!

This was my first challenge and I found it consumed a lot of my thoughts; I was excited, scared and felt hungry for the challenge…”

I questioned the cost before joining. But now that I have completed 3 months I believe that it is an excellent value.

I’m not sure why it took me so long to come aboard, I knew about this ages ago. I was certainly in a funk with photography and now feel inspired to shoot again.
