Testimonials from our attendees:


I’d like to say a big thank you for providing a relaxed but professional training session in a really super studio during which I (and the others on the course) learnt a fantastic amount about lighting and light manipulation.
I also gained a great deal of confidence for shooting in a studio environment and I have now gone on to shoot in other studio environments and feel much more comfortable directing the models.
Speaking of models, the ones selected for the training session were great, and I now have some really excellent shots to begin my portfolio.
I’ll be looking to use MindStudio again (and again)”

Just wanted to make an addition to my comments of Saturday’s course.
Since going home I have had a chance to view the images I took on my computer, I can open the same image 50 times and still be amazed at what I achieved.
The day was great and the models supplied were excellent.
Even the input i got whilst not shooting was a great advantage and valuable, Ione’s Input was clear and direct and I now feel I can go into a studio with confidence and not arrogance ;-) I can say this now as I have completed the course ‘I would have happily paid double the cost’ – and you can quote me.
I still cant believe I was doing the ‘tea pot’ pose ,just goes to show how away from yourself you go when having a great time.

Thanks a lot guys and I look forward to more lessons with you soon
Best wishes,

Really Nice session. I've learnt more technical things. Funny and interesting, it;s what i call "a way to teach", the only one which works for me.
