I have learnt invaluable skills in this course and it was one of the best decisions I made in jump starting my career. I highly recommend The Shmuel Diamond School of Photography for anyone seriously interested in knowing the technicalities of proper photography whether for professional or personal pursuance.
The material itself could not have been given over in a better way! I currently work as a full time photographer (Specialising in events, portraits and commercial/corporate photography). I now have all the tools and understanding to be able to specialise in any area of photography which I would like to pursue.
What is so special about Shmuel Diamond's courses is that we are able to move beyond skill.Shmuel was able to help us develop our own creativity and artistic style. He gave us business advice that has effected the success of my own business until today, as well as my confidence in starting from nothing and running my own business.
Within the first few classes, I felt confident enough to start charging for my work and by the end of the course, not only had I mastered a professional level of photography, but I was also able to edit my work in both Lightroom and Photoshop. By enrolling in the SDSP, you are guaranteed to be learning from the most experienced, artistic and knowledgeable teacher who takes a personal interest in your progress and whose main goal is to get your photography business off the ground.
When you step into the course, you're not just learning from the top photographer himself, you're learning from someone who is constantly and consistently advancing toward more perfection.
I learnt so much from Shmuel's courses they where presented in simple and easy way and packed with practical tips . I especially loved the textbook that came with the course, it was so helpful not having to take notes and its great to use it as a refresher down the line.
The foundation of all of my photography knowledge can be attributed to the classes I took at the SDSP. I am so grateful I had the opportunity to learn at the SDSP, thus beginning my photography career with a clear understanding of the basic, yet so important, photography concepts.
I It was intellectually stimulating as well as entirely practical. The classes were carefully structured following a direct and focused path through the world of photography and business with every lesson maximised to the full. Additionally, Shmuel's precise and clear way of teaching ensured that I left each class with total clarity on the topic covered.
Shmuel Diamond's photography course gave me the knowledge and experience to open up my own photography business. The course is taught in a hands-on manner that involves both the understanding of the camera as well as personalized practical advice.
Shmuel Diamond teaches the course in a very clear and concise manner, focusing on both the technical and stylistic parts of photography. I now have a strong foundation and understanding of photography.
The course was extremely informative and, (what I found most importantly), confidence boosting, giving each of us the assurance that this is something we CAN achieve. What a brilliant and enjoyable investment to kick-start a career!
Shmuel taught professionally with lots of patience. After taking the course, I have the knowledge and the right tools to photograph successfully . I'm glad I had Shmuel to guide and mentor me. I had the best expreince ever! I highly recomend The ZTP School of photography!
