Your portrait photography course is exactly what I would expect from the iPhotography brand. It has been a pleasure taking the course!
I found the module about lighting techniques pleasant and fascinating.
Studio photography seemed always a bit too hard for me, but with the downloadable lighting setups provided with the course it became clearer and easier.
I also really liked Stephen’s Stories – we can draw a lot from our tutor’s experience…. I can honestly recommend this course to all beginners and more experienced enthusiasts of portrait photography
I found the course very informative especially the creative portrait section as this is something that I’m really into, especially the UV section which is an area that I’m yet to try.
I found it very easy to follow. The section regarding couples and group shots was great, especially composing several shots to put onto the one photo with the negative space, definitely going to use that idea.
I like the planning and lessons on mistakes. I loved the section on over-editing, this is something I feel will help a lot of people. All round a very good course!
The course looks great and has some very in-depth, helpful lessons that will assist anyone wanting to drive their portrait photography forward.
Congratulations. An excellent addition to the iPhotography Courses I am sure it will be very popular and cause an immediate stir.

I think this course really covers everything. It was awesome!
I thought the portrait photography course was very comprehensive, far and above some teaching videos I have watched. It was very pleasing well laid out and it led you through everything step-by-step.
The rule of third was brilliantly explained – a rule I thought I had a full grasp of. I thought the editing was well explained and interesting. I’m always looking to improve my photography and editing skills so there is information that has already improved my portrait photography.
