I think the class is a great way to start. It’s not a full day where you receive too much information. The basics were well explained and you could practise what you’ve learned.

Ran is a very nice person and he presented to class very well. He appears to have a wealth of knowledge passes it on to others very well. I saw some egrets today in perfect conditions and photographed them far better for having attended the class , my photography has peaked of late and the class and Ron's knowledge sharper it further. I would recommend a couple of hours with Ran to photographers of any level 👍

Ran provided a great low light workshop, well thought-out exercises, progressing along at each stage and finishing with a fun technical exercise. Ran's easy to follow approach made the workshop very intuitive and interesting, with a great follow-up recap email.

Many thanks to Rodrigo and his model assistant for a wonderful morning. As a 73yr old and 60 years of trying to take photos, I enjoyed the relaxed friendly atmosphere and was able to learn new ways to improve my enjoyment of taking photographs. Rodrigo was very generous with offering us the use of his equipment.
