Really informative. I was very fortunate to have a one on one lesson from Jake. He cleared up a lot of questions I had. I'm definitely feeling motivated to get out and experiment with my camera. Thanks Jake.

Was great to get support on the functions of the use of the camera and why changing different settings change the photos, not just change the settings and take photos. Being new to using a mirrorless camera, the use of all the settings I?m still learning. Being able to have a bit of one-on-one assistance by a professional was fantastic. Jakes knowledge was great and his instructions were clear and the ?challenges? were a great way to learn different settings.
