Reviews
"The course was exactly as it said. I am doing Photoshop because I have to as I am teaching A level Photography so maybe not too excited about it as really I want to be taking pictures. Jeff the tutor was excellent, incredibly knowledgeable and very helpful. I was more interested at the end than when I came in so well done to the tutor for that."
