Thank you for an amazing course. I learnt so much, and feel very inspired. The passion and care with which you treat your students is fabulous. I did and do feel that you want us to succeed. The time you take to help us with Photo Critic, your Blog, Facebook etc, is most appreciated. This is truly your calling. I hope to have a long association with you as a student

I have come to a place in my photography where I was not feeling like I was achieving what I set out to do. The ideas are there, but pulling off the final product wasn’t showing it. You are helping us to be more creative and really understanding to feel the emotion beyond the shutter button.I cant wait to start a project or two, and use the knowledge you have passed over
Once again the inexpensive course was detailed and covered systematically, allowing for questions and comments. As always a highlight with DPC is the practical shoot after the theory is learnt, giving us students the chance to test out our new skills and leave with some additions to our portfolios
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you both. The basic photography course I gave Richard as a Christmas present was the best gift ever! He thoroughly enjoyed the class and is sooo enthused [it’s driving us mad], but hey that was the main aim. Thank you to you both for the best Christmas present I could ever have given my husband
I see so many training workshops pop up daily with sub-par work and experience from the teachers and then I am so glad about the product we deliver to our students. For us it is more than about the money, it is also a passion and a responsibility we do not take lightly. Our students become part of a family, they get value for money and the teachers truly are masters in their respective fields

“What differentiates Photo Critic from other similar sites is the emphasis on increasing the skills of the members. This starts with the highly professional critiques by Danie, Deon, Trompie and the others that generously give their time. It is also the enthusiasm of the members to advance that adds and so too the quality of their images which is a tribute to the courses they have attended
Recent photography articles and tutorials developed by DPC to take your photography to the next level…
When we start our journey as new photographers there is a lot of learning to be done. Strange new jargon words, rules and principles, equipment and settings to be mastered. Once we crest the peak most of us focus on shooting, and the development of knowledge concerning some of the more intricate, yet peripheral concerns, fall to the wayside. I believe one such example is the subject of colour management.
This is a common complaint I often hear in our workshops. I think almost every photographer has experienced this at some stage of their photographic journey. The good news is that asking this question is usually a sure sign that you are entering an exciting new developmental stage of your photographic journey!
