I have to say, "IT DROVE ME CRAZY". My entire business ethic has always been to "Under Promise and Over Deliver", but how can you do that when you are teaching a skill, and SO MUCH rests on the shoulders of the student?
It was this conundrum that had me thinking day and night - "Is it possible to create a FULL PROOF system whereby ANY student could become a successful professional photographer within 10 weeks?"
And I worked so hard to discover the secret recipe and the results speak for themselves - 80% of our graduates are opening successful natural light family portrait studios, and loving every minute of it!
My name is Shmuel Diamond, nice to meet you ;)
I have included a couple of slideshows below to show you the kind of photography that I've been shooting for the past 15 years!
