As a novice camera user I was in need of a teacher to get me to grips with my camera and the modes available as well as to teach me the technicalities. Juraj was very organised with his research into my experience and what camera I have in order to get the best out of our upcoming session. I was very welcomed by Juraj and he made me very comfortable in his teaching environment. He came very well prepared, having planned our session well and done research into my camera model. I was highly impressed with his approach. The session that Juraj took has really helped me to get more out of my photography and he focused on what I needed to know- he was very quick at assessing my level of technical understanding and tailored the session accordingly. I highly recommend Juraj (35mil) and would encourage any experienced or amateur photographer to learn from his wealth of knowledge and ability.
Brought my wife, the one on one introduction to photography lesson for her birthday. It was money well spent. It has given us both the opportunity to start using our camera properly. Juraj is a great teacher, who explained the most complicated and technical bits in a way both my wife and I could understand. Juraj's passion for his craft is infectious and my wife and I can't wait to start trying out the skills we have learnt. So if you are like my wife who in her own words, now knows that digital noise is not the sound the camera makes, or someone who has had some experience I would recommend 35mil. It has given me confidence to take the camera off of auto. Thank you Juraj, we will be taking the photoshop course in the future.
I had an external flash workshop with 35mil and I am so pleased with how it went! Juraj is very friendly, enthusiastic and extremely knowledgeable in all areas of photography. The course was tailored to my needs, so he was able to fill in the gaps of my knowledge. I was able to take along my own lighting setup and I was walked through how to set it up, how it worked and was shown other alternatives to what I had which would help/improve/save me money! - which was followed up by links the following day, which was most helpful. I would definitely recommend one of these courses to anyone who needs some extra help. I am now confident to start using flash and strobe lighting to improve my photography. Thank you so much.
