What other's say about this class:

100% of students recommend this class

"John is extremely articulate and is a great teacher with lots of visual aids and metaphors to help understand photography. I have been doing photography for a few years now and this class was a tremendous help in boosting my knowledge and refreshing my memory in multiple aspects of photography. The graphics that John uses are helpful and he even goes through images and asks which settings would be best to use and will go through the why. He makes things easy to understand and is very clear about the information he provides. I am so glad I took this course and I would highly recommend it even to an experienced photographer. Thank you John Greengo!" M Wagner

" Brilliant course! As a beginner, I'm impressed by the kind of shots I have been able to take after this class. I learnt a lot from the technical side of the class and feel inspired by the artistic side of the course. The latter is where experience & practice makes a world of difference so while I feel really comfortable and learnt astronomically with the technical side of the course, the artistic part of the course lets me know there is so much work I need to put in. But altogether it was a fantastic course. Thanks John" O Johnson

" As a licensed Aircraft Mechanic followed by a career as a Computer technician, I can't tell you how many instructors I have had to listen to, but I can say that John Greengo is one of the best I have ever encountered. The clarity of his voice, the speed and tempo of information delivery, the relevance of his material, and useful graphics all made for a very interesting and informative course. John is A true professional that is more than happy to share his enormous wealth of information and knowledge. Well Done John." P Mathieu
