One To One Master Classes - Testimonials
Bernard visited me onsite and soon appraised both the situation and my level of abilities and delivered a friendly, fun and rewarding days training.
We mainly focused on light-painting, a technique which I thoroughly recommend learning, but we also spent time discussing and experimenting with a multitude of techniques and solutions, from equipment, lighting and camera settings, to media and printing requirements that I required answers to.
One thing that I particularly liked, was that we used my mid-range camera and equipment, as opposed to the high-end equipment Bernard could have supplied. This left me confident that I could replicate the quality of the images created during the session.
Post-training was happy to have a look at some of my planned equipment purchases and make recommendations where required.
I highly recommend Inside Out Photography”
Ian Gould - IT Manager, IDSF Refractories & Minerals Ltd
“ I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Bernard, the day was well planned, the information came across in an easy to understand way, this guy’s wealth of knowledge is evident, I learnt many easy ways to improve my photography and tips and tricks to make my images stand out from the crowd. Well recommended. And I look forward to having another session sometime in the near future”
Daniel Holdbrook - Director-Declan James Ltd
“I found the training very valuable and I learnt a great deal in the short time we had together. It was really useful to work with a professional who could show me the shortcuts to achieve the best results”
Richard Gill - Kendal
“I was looking for training on architectural interior photography to expand my skills. When I viewed the quality of the images produced by Bernard on his website, I knew this was the place to come. I was not disappointed. My one-to-one session with Bernard started with a detailed explanation of the process from camera through to final image processing. Bernard also checked that I had my camera set up to achieve maximum quality. This was then followed by practical application of the knowledge with a number of different rooms presenting different lighting challenges. We then went through the post processing to produce final images. I am now confident that I can start to undertake this sort of work, albeit I will have some way to go to match the quality of Bernard's finished work. At least I know what to do and as they say, practice makes perfect!”
