One step at a Time

I am enjoying this class & having the opportunity to take everything "one step at a time." I have listened & reread each lesson to make sure that I can take it all in & keep it there! Rick has a wonderful personality & is a great instructor which makes it easy to view & review the lessons. I'm so thankful for this class....& hopefully more to come!

Great class to get off auto focus and understand your camera

Brilliant course, great instructor!

He's also provided lots of personalised advice and recommendations for particular camera types. Highly recommended.

Wonderful, highly recommend

I have tried and tried to learn how to use my slr camera, but there is just too much information and it all is too similar for my brain to retain! Rick goes step by step and explains what each thing does, helping it to stick out in my memory. I have upped my photo taking game big time! Thanks Rick!
