I couldn't recommend it enough - it’s an excellent course. The tutors are great. Every assignment is different and my photographs are much better because of it. Good feedback, lots of encouragement. I've picked up so much in the last six months.

You've lots of support with the tutors, forum and the Facebook page for students. You can see what other people are doing which is really useful when you're studying at home. They give really good feedback on the assignments and they're very encouraging.

After the first lesson I was so excited - I was able to use my camera in manual mode. I see a massive change when I look at my photos from a year ago.

As a past student of the Photography Academy, I have to compliment the course content, tutors and management of Photography Academy. The assignments were well thought out and I found my tutor Miriam to be excellent.
