It was a great class. The trainer made every effort to give personalised attention in answering people's specific questions. We were given plenty of technical information and skills, but not overloaded, so easy to understand and start using the skills. Would recommend this course to beginners and people wanting to refresh their knowledge and skills which was my reason for doing the classic cause it had been a while since I used all the functions.

Glenn's very knowledgeable and patient with us the whole way through. He checked settings on each one of our cameras, walked us through each step and made sure we were on the same page. As a beginner it really helps me understand what ISO/shutter speed/aperture mean/do on the camera and enables me to put everything together in practice. Thank you Glenn for making the 4-hour session enjoyable! Now I need to play around with my camera and practise.
