How do I change my account information?

You can easily change the name and/or email address linked to your account, or change your password by logging into your account and going to the “Account Information” area.

I bought this as a gift, how to I give the streaming access to the person I bought this for?

If you have bought a course as a gift for someone and you want to give them access to their streaming and downloadable version of the course there are two options.

The first is that you had over your account on our site to them. Do this by simply logging into your account and going to the “Account Information” area. Here you can change the name, email address and password linked with the account. This does mean however that everything in your account will be handed over to them and you will no longer have an account.

If you already have products in your account and you do not want to hand over the whole account, please contact us and will be able to move the desired products to a new account for them.

Is there a discount for purchasing more than one DVD?

Yes. We have several deals running on our sites. ( We cannot offer any other deals for different combinations of DVDs. The deals that are on display on our sites are the only deals we have available.

When will I receive my test paper?

If you have purchased a test paper, you will receive an e-mail with instruction on how to sit the on-line test. This test is based on the knowledge that you will obtain from our Complete Photography Masterclass course. We recommend that you watch the entire course and wait a few months to sit the test. This is to give you time to watch all of the courses, digest the information and put what you have learnt into practice before taking the test. Once you have taken the test paper you will be sent a certificate in the post with your score on it.

Does my certificate come framed?

Unfortunately no. The certificate will be sent on its own.

How does the portfolio review work?

The portfolio reviews take place over skype at a scheduled time to suit both the client (you) and Karl. You must have skype to be able to take part in a portfolio review. Six images are to be sent in advance to this so that Karl and his associates have time to review the images before the skype conversation. The portfolio review on skype will last 30 minutes.

Will the DVD play in my region and what format is it?

We produce our DVDs region free so they are not restricted. We also produce our DVDs in the NTSC format for North America, Japan and the Philippines and in PAL format suitable for the UK, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, the Middle East and most of Asia. Prior to shipping we check the requested destination of the order and ship the correct format as necessary so you don’t need to worry about it.

The wrong amount seems to be deducted from my account for my order.

Please order from the correct website. We have a UK site and a USA site. Prices on our UK website are in GB Pounds sterling (£) and prices on our USA site are in US Dollars ($).

Unfortunately we cannot offer any deals on the Apps as they are run by a partner company.

If I buy the DVDs, can I get the Apps for free to download too?

Unfortunately not, the Apps are run by a different company and not by ourselves directly. If you would like the Apps and the DVDs they would have to be purchased separately.
