Featured Testimonial: Online Courses

A student of my Introduction to DSLR Photography Online Course said the following in a recent email to me:

I'm using the Sony Nex-5N. I of course realize it's mirrorless, but the lessons are very applicable. I bought a huge book written JUST for the NEX, but had already learned more in the first 3 lessons [of your online course]. I especially appreciate the combination reading/video/practical application. Getting it into my brain through 3 modalities is proving very effective for me. It's interesting how even after a couple days, I am beginning to see things in and around the house differently. [Enrolling in your course] was a good move and I'm reasonably sure I will be purchasing the rest of the courses after this. Should have bought the bundle, but experience has shown me I either don't commit or the material is less than expected. Neither has been the case this time. Thanks.

A recent graduate of my Introduction to DSLR Photography Online Course had this to say about the course:

Nick Carver not only has a firm grasp on the subject of photography, he also has an excellent understanding of how people learn. His online courses are designed to insure that all types of learners--visual, kinesthetic,and auditory--walk away with an improved understanding of photography and how to implement what they've learned. Nick isn't my first photography teacher but he is the only one who actually taught me how to take better photos. In his course the lights turned on for me and my pictures will never be the same. Thanks Nick!

Student L. Jorgensen recently finished my How to Shoot in Full Manual Online Course and had these great things to say about it:

I took an on-line course last year [not by Nick Carver] which cost me a fortune and did nothing but make me angry! It was frustrating, pompous and I learned very little! For each chapter, I had to go out and buy books to try to understand what they were trying to say!  

So, I decided to try Nick Carver's method, and I felt that my "photo eyes" had been opened for the first time! “Is that how you meter - how simple, and why didn't anybody tell me!?” I was so fascinated that I read all the material and watched the videos in one day. Everything was explained in a manner that I could immediately grasp.  I literally began shooting in Manual and metering as per Nick’s instructions within minutes. I have not become Ansel Adams overnight, but I do shoot in manual 90% of the time and it has become very second nature.

Nick is very professional, a great teacher and it does not hurt that he is very helpful and pleasant to work with. I have already started his course on Filters and plan on signing up for the course on Composition. I would recommend his courses in a heartbeat!
