"The Basic Photography Course is a provides a broad and yet rather in-depth insights of DSLR photography. Now, whenever I post a photo on my Facebook, I start to receive many "likes". From the course, I have witnessed different generations of photographers and different philosophies, however, all leads to a common idea, that is to shoot a good photo.

Edward Cheong, is a knowledgeable, experienced and passionate instructor. David Low was very generous in teaching me all the different photography techniques during the outdoor night-shooting session. And lastly Steven Yee, the savvy instructor whom we spent most of our time with. His interactive teaching and drills helps us to remember the photography principles easily.
This course not only equip me with the basic photography skills, it also allows me to make a group of like-minded friends..."

- participant Elijah Lim

"I have enjoyed the Basic Photography Course. I was total zero with photography and clueless on how to use the DSLR, but after the basic course, I managed to understand photography. The lessons are interactive, the instructors are great and I enjoyed the discussion sessions and companionship of my group mates. Now I no longer use AUTO mode and what's in store for me is a world of fun in photography."
