  • Karl, I know you don't know me at all, but I just wanted to say thank you for how you've made me a better and more creative photographer. I am an American creative professional living and working in Japan for the past 25 years. I fell in love with photography through being a music video director when our production bought Canons to shoot video last year. Since then I've been taking courses and workshops whenever, wherever I can. I've studied from some top name photographers in the biz but somehow you bring it all to life. Your enthusiasm and passion is contagious and your instruction easy to understand and follow. I dare say you are the best instructor I've had the pleasure of learning from thus far and I just wanted to show my appreciation. Please keep giving us those precious little gems to learn from.

  • I just want to say a massive thank you Karl! I have been seeking to improve my photography skills for some time now by means of some structured training but I found that no-one was willing to help me out and I had serious doubts about web based courses and their fees. I then came across your website and purchased the MasterClass DVDs These are packed full of relevant, easy to understand information, tips and training and at an unbelievable price. I am well impressed; thanks again!

    Peter Ritchie, UK
  • I thought I'll have something to watch over the whole weekend but in fact I managed to 'check it all' in just one afternoon... The DVD is very well prepared. The topics covered were top notch and the way it is being explained to the viewer is really awesome! Even though I consider myself to be somewhat advanced amateur photographer, even the beginner lessons gave me something new to think about... Great job everyone! Once I top up my virtual credit card, you'll get another order from me :)
