Matt Krumins Photography

August 2021 Update:

As you can imagine, due to the current Melbourne Circuit Breaker lockdown workshops are postponed until the lockdowns are lifted. As the situation appears to be rolling at the moment I will be loading face-to-face workshop dates when we have a clear commencement date rather than an anticipated one. In the mean time online classes will still be running.

June 2021 Update:

Group sizes lowered to a maximum of 6 or 7 participants (group size of 8 including myself).

  • Hand Sanitiser available at all times
  • Workshops locations are modified to avoid crowded areas.
  • Participants who have even mild cold or flu symptoms are not to attend. To assist with this I have removed the requirement for 7 days notice to reschedule to ensure you are not penalised for making the right judgement call to not attend.
  • If there is a requirement, mask are to be worn in accordance with Victorian Government recommendations
  • Contact tracing information is collected via workshop booking records

If you have any questions or would like to discuss how I am handling these measures please contact me on 0402 812 805.

I’ve just completed my 2nd online course with Matt - advanced Lightroom. The course was extremely informative. Matt’s way of explaining the “how to” is simple, clear and concise. Absolutely brilliant, highly recommend. Thanks Matt.

I had a one-to-one private lesson today with Matt to help familiarise myself with the basics of my new camera. I found Matt so helpful and encouraging, and I have gained the confidence to go out start practicing. I’m looking forward to joining some of his group classes soon. I would highly recommend Matt as a photographer teacher.

I did the Travel and Street workshop today and found Matt to be super creative, energetic and engaging. He gave us lots of tips on taking images for a different perspective and how to use the settings on our cameras and what sort of images to take with them. Matt made a point to come around to each of us to see if we understood what he had explained and to help us if we needed it. He was very patient and helpful and a lot of fun! Would highly recommend!

I did Matt's Night workshop in July 2019. Matt has a great manner, and in a friendly and chatty way takes the mystery of photography away and helps you take better photos.in May 2021 I did Matt's Bright Bootcamp and in one week my photography has improved beyond expectation. Again, Matt's ability to demystify the technical side of photography and get you to a position where you can take great photos ... and automatically know what to do when they're not great to make them better, is awesome. Thanks

I’ve just returned from the Bright boot camp workshop. Matt’s enthusiasm for all things photography, together with his people, and organizational skills, made for a wonderful week. Matt has a flexible plan which can change according to weather conditions and/or the participants’ needs and wants. Matt provides loads of learning opportunities and good quality printed learning material was given to each participant to keep. We were shown some amazing spots to photograph and got to taste some pretty good food from the local eateries too. I would thoroughly recommend this workshop.

This course at Cape Schank was so worth the early wake call. I absolutely loved it. The small numbers (4) allow Mattt to give each person time as they need it & is so willing to share his vast knowledge, tips & ideas. I learnt so much & came way on such a high. I learnt ND & polarising filter techniques & composition skills that I have only seen in glamorous coffee table books. Highly recommend Matt to anyone looking to improve their skills.

I just did the Advanced wildlife photography workshop with Matt and as always it was fantastic! Matt's knowledge of different cameras is very impressive and he explained settings on the camera that were easily understandable as well as some tips and tricks that were easy to implement. It was a small group size and that meant we got individual attention focused on our own issues and interests. My photography improved so much in just the short few hours I had with him. I am planning on trying to book into one of Matt's full day workshops soon. Thank you Matt!

I have operated an outdoor Theme Park by the name of Funfields for a period of about 25 years. Over the years we have used professional photographers for some really good results. However this year we enlisted the services of Matt Krummins and the results were outstanding. Matt had to work with a number of talent on the day and he did it with ease. Everyone commented on how easy going he was and how easy it was to take his directions. The main difference was Matt's composition. He captured some dynamic shots. As we know we're always after the "money shot" and if you can get one in a shoot you're doing well. In this shoot Matt was able to deliver numerous money shots. I would recommend Matt for any photography shoot and a quick look on his website will show you how diverse his talent is.Thank you so much for your great work Matt!!!!

Your a genius Matt! Your enthusiasm for your chosen lifestyle is to be commended. I had a great time on Friday learning how to further improve my camera skills, taking good photos and meeting new friends. I especially enjoyed the time where you sat with the group explaining the finer points of photography before putting it all into practice. And to all of the older generation that might get the opportunity to read this feedback"Old age is just a barrier, not an obstacle."Looking forward to our next adventure Matt!

Have just completed the Peninsular landscape course and was so impressed. Matt is relaxed, funny and friendly but also very talented and helpful so makes for great learning. He was attentive to each of us and if you were a bit more advanced then he tailored his teaching to the more advanced. No one was left behind but also it never became boring if you a bit ahead. Highly recommended. Can’t wait for the macro course next year.

Over the past 3 months I have attended a number of Matt's workshops, both online and in person. I recommend his workshops without hesitation. An excellent communicator with the ability to explain concepts clearly in either laymans terms for beginners, or on a technical level to suit the most experienced photographers. Importantly, Matt's workshops represent GREAT VALUE for money. He is the complete gentleman and his knowledge is vast.

I have completed several workshops with Matt and just had another awesome day with him and the group on the Seascapes workshop. I am totally new to this genre and found I continued to learn more about my camera and its settings. Matt's no hold back approach to teaching the group is highly commendable, he makes sure that all the people in the group are up to speed with camera settings and techniques. Looking forward to my next workshop.
Thanks again Matt.

With little experience in photography after dark I signed up to one of Matt's 'Melbourne By Night' Sessions. It was an absolute treat to be guided in a very personable, clear and instructive manner. Matt has a huge reservoir of knowledge and this has really helped take my photography to another level. Can highly recommend these workshops!

I did the beginners workshop today, at Melbourne Zoo. What’s a beginner? In my case it’s someone who has been an enthusiastic photographer for many years, but has never confidently moved beyond the auto setting on my camera. 3 hours in a small group with Matt today has been a revelation. Time to hear Matt talk through the how and why and then taking lots of photos to put new knowledge into practice. It’s a really well paced 3 hours that allows plenty of time for questions and one-to-one tuition. So, whether you’re the sort of beginner that I am, or someone who is just starting out, I’d say this is an investment of your time and money that will repay you many times over.

SEP 2020I've enrolled in a few Matt's camera workshops through the past few years. During the current COVID Stage 4 restrictions, I've recently enrolled in my first online course (Matt's Mastering Manual Settings) via Zoom. The course provided easier way to understand the difference between the Camera Modes and how this effects the style in my photography. The course provided an in-depth understanding about the camera itself and provided me with insight on the minimum shutter speed for hand held photography (given everyone physical ability is different, knowing what my limitations are will greatly increase my future photography experience). As usual its always exciting, interesting when joining Matt's course. Matt will take the time interact/ help his students on many occasions (on topics outside of the course material). The Mastering Manual Settings workshop has given me more inspiration on how to use the Manual mode of the camera (there is no longer a fear for the M symbol on the camera). I definitely recommend this course to anyone who finds Manual mode confusing and frustrating.FEB 2020I've previously joined the Travel and Street Photography workshop with Matt and it was an eye opening experience. Not only did Matt guided me on the use of camera settings for my camera, he also made it easy to understand analogies and real life examples. I was actually very surprised as it seems Matt has a wide range of experience/ knowledge with different cameras (to the extend to located specific settings for range Point & Shoot, Mirrorless and DSLR cameras). During this workshop Matt has provided everyone with one on one personalized training which meet their photography objective/ criteria. I definitely enjoyed the workshop and learnt a lot from Matt's expertise.

I have just finished my ‘Manual Photography’ course with Matt. I wish I had done it a lot sooner, rather than searching through YouTube and purchasing ebooks. It has been such a rewarding experience. Now rather than hoping for the best, if my pic isn’t what I expected I can look at it and see why? Reflection and knowledge is such a valuable tool to be given.

I've done a number of Matt's courses both face to face and online. I have also completed his bootcamp. I think I'm addicted, I'm always looking to see if he has something new for me to sign up for - was excited this morning to see dates for his mastering manual course.Spending time on Matt's workshops are more like hanging out with a friend. Always lots of laughs while you learn. Everything just makes sense when he explains it. He is a fantastic teacher.So, just do it!!!

I have just done Matts Composition workshop and it was great. I learnt a LOT and I am not a beginner... Matt has a great style and a heap of knowledge. You've read this next bit already - frequently.... Matt will go out of his way to get the info across to you. He will go off topic too if that is what is required. Too many "teachers" have a rigid structure that they will stick to no matter what. That is not Matt. I cannot recommend Matt enough and this course in particular. Thanks Matt!!

As someone who has always used only the automatic settings on my camera, I found Matt's 'Beginners Photography Workshop' thoroughly enjoyable. I received enough information to move forward without being overloaded and could put what I learnt into use straight away. It was a delightful morning photographing lots of amazing animals at the Melbourne Zoo. Aside from an abundance of photographic knowledge, Matt is highly professional, punctual and passionate and I look forward to doing some more of his workshops.

I did a Workshop with Matt today at the Melbourne Zoo, it was a wonderful day and I came away with a clearer vision of the how to work my camera(s) and had some lovely shots to bring home. Matt explains things in a simplified way and notes that are specific to my camera(s) and with practice using this knowledge I feel confident that I can produce printable photos that I’ll be happy to frame. Thanks Matt for a great day 👍

Have now completed 7 workshops with Matt. Why do I keep coming back - well its simple, I feel I am a better photographer for wisdom that Matt gives in the huge variety of workshops. Just completed an Advanced Lightroom Online Workshop over 3X 2 hour sessions complete with access to in-depth tutorial sessions. Matt has such an entertaining and encouraging manner in the way he delivers all of his diverse workshops. His knowledge on so many different camera systems is mind - blowing. Access to all of the additional on-line tutorials; his own personal contact when I need individual assistance; and, participation in regular no cost webinars, are just added levels of support he provides. As a member of Matt's Mob, a Facebook Collective for all of his past participants, I get insight in others photography, a supportive membership of like minded people willing to provide constructive critique and support. I highly recommend Matt Krumins Photography to any one who wants to improve their photography.

Currently I am doing Matt's workshop on composition. Now I thought I had a pretty good understanding of composition... but it appears not. In just one session and a bit of 'homework' I have changed my thinking on how to compose an image. Matt has a great teaching style he makes it easy to learn, is very knowledgeable. Highly recommend his courses both online (and workshops, when we can get out and about again). Thanks Matt for sharing your knowledge

I completed part one of the Advanced Lightroom course today via the new format of the online interactive mode and can't recommend it highly enough. I was a little worried about how I would be able to manage the online format instead of in person, but it was fantastic. I was able to do everything on my own computer, follow the session well, ask questions and all without leaving the comfort of home. A great course, wonderful instructor and slippers on my feet. What more could you want?

Experienced Matt’s online Advanced Lightroom course in lieu of the original face to face training course due to the current social isolation. Was initially sceptical whether the online format would be as beneficial as the classroom training, however I was very impressed with the delivery and the way Matt ensured we understood the content. He demonstrated each of the various Lightroom steps on the screen and checked for feedback before moving onto the next topic. He displayed a thorough knowledge of Lightroom and also provided access to other relevant material. He invited participants to contact him directly by phone or email if they required any further clarification on topics. I couldn’t fault the course or the manner in which it was delivered, highly recommend it for anyone wanting to improve their photo auditing skills.

In particular in these times of worries about the dreaded virus, Matt offers calmness and sensibly to keep enjoying the activities we enjoy. Thanks Matt.

I have just done Matt’s Beginners Lightroom course and can not recommend it highly enough.

Lightroom is something that I have struggled with for a few years and just could not grasp the basics. They way Matt breaks it down and the friendly, informative way it was presented, all suddenly started to make sense.

Matt could not of been any more helpful and displays an outstanding knowledge of the subject. It was my first course with Matt but certainly won’t be my last. Looking forward to doing more of the wide range of course he offers.

I thoroughly recommend this workshop if you are planning a trip, but do it even if you aren't.Doesn't he look like a fun guy?

I have had 2 x 2 hour private sessions with Matt and they have been fantastic! Matt was very patient with me, covering a wide range of subjects from how to use my new filters, tripod and other gadgets, recommending useful equipment and sending through links for ease of purchasing, explaining Lightroom and giving lots of technical tips for producing a better shot. He also let me video him explaining equipment set ups and other practical concepts. Matt is a friendly guy who genuinely wants to help. I am sure I will be back for another session as being shown one-on-one is the best way for me to learn.

I completed the Beginner’s course at Melbourne Zoo this morning and it was truly worth it! Matt’s teaching style is simple, he uses everyday examples and language rather than the typical photography language. This made it easy to grasp concepts and then I was able to continue on around the zoo on my own and practice what I learned in this course. I plan on continuing my lessons with Matt in the near future.18/01/2020 I followed up the beginner session with the Street and Travel workshop in the Melbourne CBD. Needless to say, it was very informative and lots of learning was had on the day. Many oh wow moments as Matt showed us some neat tricks with aperture and shutter priority. These will come in handy when travelling and trying to get some great shots without having the focus on the crowds around you. I will be taking on more workshops with Matt as his teaching style is for all ages and is simple and easy to remember.

As always Matt's speed light workshop was sensational. Fun and learning all at the same time. Who can ever forget the hand signals for light onto the sensor!!!! "You are in charge of the light" Thanks Matt for a very informative morning. Cheers

Attended the Advanced Wildlife Photography at the Melbourne Zoo with Matt and had a great experience. Matt's passion for photography is infectious. I gained more knowledge in the 3 hours spent with Matt than I have in a long time. Matt delivers easy to grasp concepts in an engaging and fun style. I had a ball and the laminated cards are very handy 👍

Matt is very knowledgeable and has an easy message method on confusing topic.
I came away with a better idea of what I needed to do to help myself. He provided a convenient set of tips on laminated cards as a takeaway support tool. Best thing was his help on settings for my camera; but he seemed to know enough on all the makes and models in our group.
Highly recommended.

Matt is a superstar! His Street Portrait workshop was an intimate, easy to understand photo walk with a heap of real time feedback! I picked up a lot of tips and tricks doing this workshop on a lot of aspects from camera set up, quick tips around my camera body, how to approach people in the street as well as my new favourite thought of you can never be too wide in your lens!Huge thanks to Matt for running such awesome workshops!

Matt's workshops are always highly enjoyable and very worthwhile. Yesterday's Real World Portraits certainly met these criteria and I felt that the other participants felt the same as I did. I attended this workshop for the second time as I wanted to practise getting quicker at making better decisions on the spot which, in turn, would produce better photos. While I still feel that I failed to do this sufficiently well in too many instances - particularly in getting clear, uncluttered backgrounds - it was a useful exercise and Matt was nearby to offer praise in a few instances (I'm not sure whether was deserved or not though) and suggestions for improvements in other cases. This is an important advantage of his small-group workshops, with only six other participants. After yeserday's experience, I feel confident enough to return to the city to photograph buskers and any other individuals with sufficient allure who are also willing to be photographed. I realise that lots and lots of practice is necessary to become a better photographer and I am grateful to Matt for what I have learned from his guided instruction at various workshops to date. I strongly recommend anyone living within commuting distance to Melbourne to take advantage of the sessions which he offers in person.

I attended Matt's Real World Portraits workshop yesterday and it was fantastic! Matt is extremely knowledgeable and able to share his knowledge in a simple and easy to remember way. I found Matt's style to be very engaging and heaps fun making the entire group feel at ease and up for the challenge of getting up and personal with our subjects. The group size is kept small deliberately which was great as I had heaps of 1:1 advice from Matt, not just technical but also how best to compose your shot or how to better it next time. All in all a great workshop and I will certainly be back for more.

Learnt so much in the short period of time I was at the Melbourne Zoo workshop for. Walked away from this workshop from not knowing anything to knowing enough now that I can shoot with confidence and look back through my photos with others instead of cringing at them and pressing delete. Thank you Matt for sharing you knoweledge in such a way it was easy to understand and remember.

Fab morning learning how to use my camera. First hour was explaining how to change settings and reasons to or not to and numerous other things. Matt explained how to change and when to use these settings which helped my photo's no end. ( I don't do manuals) 😀 . Matt was patient with us newbies and easy to listen to. For beginners this is the Workshop for you to start your journey into the world of photography. Thanks for a great morning Matt.

He knew my camera like the back of his hand as well as everybody else's. The group was a nice small group so Matt had plenty of time to spend time with everyone. I learnt a lot during the workshop. Totally recommend !!

I completed the Beginner’s course at Melbourne Zoo this morning and it was truly worth it! Matt’s teaching style is simple, he uses everyday examples and language rather than the typical photography language. This made it easy to grasp concepts and then I was able to continue on around the zoo on my own and practice what I learned in this course. I plan on continuing my lessons with Matt in the near future.
Adding to my review, since completing the beginners course I also completed the Street and Travel which was fantastic! The pandemic restrictions hit but that didn’t stop Matt. He found a virtual way to deliver some of the courses. So I gave it a shot with the Compositions workshop and it was truly worth it. Following that we were able to be out and about so I completed the all day Seascapes and Peninsulas workshop. We learned to use ND filters and become more familiar with our cameras, well worth it! I also attended a four day photography festival where Matt was one of the organisers and presenters. Needless to say it was jam packed and has kept me busy during ISO. Most recently I completed the mastering manual workshop and it did not disappoint and is well worth it. If you are looking to learn more about photography in a practical way, just book in with Matt, you won’t regret it!

I did my second course with Matt over the weekend - the “Travel & Street Workshop”, having done the beginner workshop at the zoo last year. This was a fantastic afternoon mixing some theory with practical feedback, learning some very cool things to be more creative with shots along the way. I had bought a voucher for my dad to do this workshop and decided to join him and once again was so impressed with Matt’s patience and communication style for all levels of capability with the camera. I think my dad and I are both hooked and will be booking on more courses with Matt in the future.

Matt covered a great range of topics and my photography has really improved since implementing his tips and tricks. Matt knew an incredible amount about our different cameras and he had plenty of time to support us 1:1. I highly recommend Matt's workshops to anyone wanting to move beyond the Auto and Scene functions of their camera, whether you're on a little compact like me or have larger SLR camera with interchangeable lenses. Thanks for a great day!

Matt’s night workshop is great for beginners. He takes the mystery and difficulty out of photography, gives you practical and helpful hints (and cards so you can remember them) and actively helps you instead of standing by and watching.
Additionally he seems to know how every camera works so even if you don’t it’s okay because he does.
Thanks Matt.

I had previously attended Matt’s Travel and Street photography and Real world portraits workshops both of which were hugely beneficial!
The most recent addition was a 3 hour 1 on 1 workshop with Matt to recap and cover off ideas for an upcoming trip to Sri Lanka.
Matt is incredibly patient and a great teacher and has an ability to be able to explain complex explanations in a way that is easily relatable and you will remember.
The 1 on 1 workshop allowed me to ask as many questions as possible.
I also had the opportunity to explore filters and Speed lighting which I had never even considered before.
Would highly recommend Matt’s workshops he goes above and beyond for each and every one of his students !

I attended the Street and Travel photography course run by Matt as a gift from my children. I have been a keen amateur photographer from my teens and learnt lots of new things from Matt - including composition techniques and technical aspects of my camera . Matt has a great style ensuring concepts were easily understood and providing practical tips to improve my photography. The group size is small enough (we had 5 of the 6 normal class size) to receive one on one attention and also make connections with like minded people. The locations were well chosen and time frame perfect. Highly recommended.

Matt is a great teacher – easy-going with a wealth of knowledge that he is only too happy to share. He is patience, clear in his instructions and answered any questions I had. I would highly recommend Matt’s workshops and would love to do another course in the near future.

I thought the content of the course was perfect not too much information that you couldn't retain it. I got a lot out of the workshop not only about how to take photos but also about my camera. Would recommend Matt Krumins to any new photographer.

My concerns about being a novice were swept away in a few minutes. I learned things from Matt in the first 15 mins to make a significant difference to how I will approach taking photos on my next trip. I know how to work and understand my camera so much more effectively. Also given many tips on choosing an artistic perspective. Matt also adjusted my settings to alleviate some challenges I have been having....so no more "mum" photos for me!

Matt is a fantastic teacher, he's incredibly knowledgeable, patient and happy to answer questions about any and all aspects of photography. I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop I did with him at the zoo and will no doubt be returning for other courses.

had an awesome morning with Matt at the zoo yesterday. his thorough knowledge about photography on all levels was evident . he explained everything on a level that everyone was able to understand. I learnt so much about not only taking great shots but also much more about my own camera. Enjoyed the workshop and look forward to taking advantage of all the extra online support offered post workshop.

I completed a one-to-one workshop with Matt. Totally tailored to my own goals and camera. Matt is easy to build a rapport with and great at explaining some technical terms and techniques without using fancy words. Matt provided some tip sheets and small laminated cards to help me remember everything and he also created a document tailored to my camera as a great reminder of the functions. It’s been almost a month since I had my workshop and I love the photos I have been taking. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Matt and I look forward to joining some more workshops when I have a bit more free time.

I had a great time on Matt's Travel & Street Workshop! I have often found the photography community a little difficult to navigate at times and Matt was warm and welcoming! No question was too silly and he really pushed you out of your comfort zone. Looking forward to joining other workshops soon!

Matt is a great teacher, super generous with his knowledge, easy to understand, relatable and most of all a nice person! I got some amazing shots and bumped my skills up a few notches. Would definitely recommend Matt’s courses to any budding photographers out there - do yourself a favour, you won’t regret it!

I attended the beginners course at Melb Zoo. I found the course very informative for the following reasons:
> Matt has a way of explaining technical jargon in layman’s terms.
> Matt breaks down the course into bite size chunks in a very logical order.
> well structured so that you can understand key components of any camera such that when you go out and take pics you apply what you have just learned and maximise your cameras settings
> Matt spends one on one time with participants in a small group to answer all your questions in full.
> gives you instant feedback on your photos so that you can take that pic again with better knowledge

5 out of 5 stars. Great course. I’ll definitely recommend Matt’s course to my friends and family.

It was my first workshop with Matt. The advanced wildlife workshop yesterday.Well I must say a huge Thank you to you Matt.I learned heaps. Being my first trial of my 100-400 lens. Wow!!! Not only did Matt know my camera and the lens, he gave me such great tips of how to use it converting my tripod to a monopod. Lots of great tips. Mostly shooting in A priority. Was great.I think I have some good pics. Will put it up on his group site when I get to them. Looking forward to my next workshop with him.Highly recommend this for anyone looking to learn about wildlife. He was patient and each of us got a lot of his attention. The only downside, the time flew by. Wish it was longer.

Matt has a really down to earth approach. He really listens to what you need help with, then offers focused assistance to help you with your camera or any aspect of your photogtaphy. He just makes everything work. Plus, he's fun 🙂

Fantastic, fun afternoon at the Travel and Street Workshop. Matt gave me plenty of advice on how to use the settings on my new camera and I'm left with the confidence to play with them when taking photos.

I attended Matts beginners Lightroom workshop on Tuesday night with a fair bit of trepidation not really knowing what to expect. Matt went though all the techniques of Lightroom without any tech jargon. Matt is great at explaining everything in plain english which is really good. I now have a better understanding of Lightroom and feel I can now start editing my photos.
I highly recommend this workshop with Matt.

I participated in the Beginners Lightroom workshop last night and came away feeling far more confident about using the program and also inspired to work on my Lightroom skills. The group size was small which meant that everyone's needs were met and Matt was extremely patient throughout the session. I would highly recommend this course, even if you have been using Lightroom for a while.

Matt was great. Clear and concise in his explanations. I learnt how everything can be linked to LR, like keywords which was helpful. And now have a much better understanding of how to organise my files

My wife Jess loved the Travel Photography workshop in March 2019. All experience levels were catered for. Matt took away the "getting it right" anxiety to promote a fun "have a try" environment. A highly recommended learning experience.

What an amazing teacher! I did the Advanced Wildlife Photography Workshop at the Zoo with Matt Krumins and because he makes learning fun, the instructions stayed with me. We had a small group, but I believe that even it it was a large group Matt would find the time to come and give each of us that individual instruction we needed. Matt used 'layman's terms' and gave us options (there was no 'you must use') - the time just went so fast! Thank you for sharing your energy, skills, knowledge and experience.

i had an amazing time yesterday at the travel and street photography workshop.
Matt is a very talented and creative man.
as a beginner I couldn't believe how much I have learned in only 3 hours.
I really liked his approach to photography and how he teaches to see and observe everything around us.
I was in a small group of very nice people, so it wasn't crowded and easy to get individual guidelines from Matt.
highly recommended guys!

Matt was fantastic, he ran a workshop on light painting with our year 10 photography students. He was engaging, knowledgeable and very well organised. I would highly recommend him 🙂

I had a 3hr private workshop with Matt. It was great to have the workshop at the location where I do most of my client's photography work. We could discuss the environment's pros and cons and how I can create some control in my working environment. Matt's workshop enabled me to develop my beginner skills and address specific areas that were a bit fuzzy and needed clarifying! Matt also introduced to me helpful tools, notes and the opportunity to have a go at using an off-camera flash which was awesome. Highly recommend Matt! He is a wonderful teacher which makes a world of difference! Thanks Matt!

**HIGHLY RECOMMENDED** Matt teaches easily and clearly. He teaches at a pace that everyone can learn at and asking questions is recommended so don't hold back when learning. The course groups are small which is great for a more personalised and connective experience.

My son gave me Matt's Advanced Lightroom workshop for Christmas. What a Christmas present. I have been a Lightroom user for some years but I hadn't unlocked its true capabilities. Matt sure did that for me. His style is friendly and understandable and he took us through some previously unknown to me advanced functions which are eminently useful to all Lightroom users. All backed up with printed notes for the forgetful ones like me. Totally recommended.
