This is what photographers have said about The Photography Masters – 2018

“The Photography Masters has got to be one of the best courses I have been on.  The  course went over and beyond expectations.  I learnt so much about how to run my  business properly as well as learning new photography skills.  Fantastic.”

I am so inspired to take my newly acquired knowledge on my next wedding; it can’t come quickly enough. I hoped that this week would encourage me to take more wedding bookings and that’s exactly how I feel, totally inspired… I cannot thank you enough and the whole group for making this such a wonderful training week. Everything was perfect!  Value for money.  I will stop rambling now. Can’t wait to book on the next one!   Thank you, everyone!

“Thank you everyone this week has been amazing”  

“It was the best experience I’ve ever had. The Photography Masters is totally so well organised and jam packed full of information, what a course.”

Ozzie Malik

Di Vinci Photography

“A photographer’s skill is based on their sensitivity, their ‘eye’, and their ability to involve themselves immediately with others – not their cameras.  Ozzie Malik has that skill.  Ozzie Malik has that passion.  Ozzie has an ability to draw out the inner essence and character of the people he is photographing; he does this by watching, listening, noticing and even predicting events that are happening all around him. He studies architecture, life and above all else people but he does not do this knowingly he does it instinctively. It comes from within, it is him, and that is what you are buying when you engage the services of Ozzie for your wedding photography.”

Whether you are in a small group session or on a personal 1-2-1 with one of our fabulous trainers, you will be able to tap into a tremendous amount of knowledge and experience that the Photography Masters brings in this fabulous week.  You’ll be ready, prepared and excited for your Weddings this year!



“I attended The Photography Masters course in May 2018  held at the fabulous venue, Chateau Impney Hotel. I can’t even begin to express my appreciation for the knowledge and confidence I have gained since this course. Although I have been photographing weddings for ten years, I had kind of fell out of love with shooting them. I booked your course several months in advance with the idea of learning new skills and hopefully let me fall in love with my wedding photography again! And I did!

Since the Masters, my images have changed for the better. I wanted to learn about using off-camera flash, and I have now upgraded my lights to put into practice all my new skills.  At weddings now I am so excited to get my bride and grooms outside and into the grounds and give them something different to anything I have photographed before.

Julie, your wedding photography course covered everything for me, natural lighting, looking for the right light, making available light and also providing light (OCF) and offered so much more than I expected with new techniques from photographing to editing.  You have somehow managed to re-light my passion for wedding photography, and for that, I am most grateful.

I would love to be able to attend the next Masters wedding course again next year but with bookings, I can’t.  However, I feel there is so much to be learnt within the four-day residential course that I have booked my second shooter on the next course. There is not much more I can add, but a whole hearted thank you for the knowledge I have learnt from the course and the new friends I made.  Thank you is all I can say”.
