Testimonials

We have received many testimonials from students who have successfully completed one of our  Photography Courses. Here are few examples.

  • Luella Johnsen

    The workshop (Bootcamp) was very well done. Ted is an excellent teacher and was careful to ensure that everyone had answers to their questions. The size of the class of excellent and was a very comfortable group.
    The repetition required to better understand our cameras was very beneficial.

  • Jeff Isaak

    I've gone to Ted on two separate occasions for lessons and each time he did not disappoint. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable but he's great at teaching and makes sure you're able to understand the content before he moves on.

    To top it off he's a great guy too. You can tell he genuinely loves what he teaches and he wants you to succeed. I'd definitely recommend him.

  • Greg Turner

    Great class (Portrait Photography class), very informative. I would recommend Omnilargess classes to any photographer of any level. It's a great hands on learning experience. It was great. Lots of feed back while on site. I learned a lot of things about portrait photography. The class has definitely made my portraits better. Can't wait to see my photos you edited and your feedback on my images.

  • White balance in digital photography

    Natalie Stevenson

    I actually took Ted's photography Bootcamp program because I bought my son a digital camera for his birthday and he asked if I would take the class with him. I intended on sharing my son's camera with him for the program, but after the first class I ran right out and bought my own camera. I knew NOTHING about how to work this camera, other than how to turn it on. Ted was a fantastic teacher! By the end of the program I was feeling like a professional. I highly recommend this photography Bootcamp to anyone that owns a digital camera and would like to know what all the fancy buttons are about. You may even get hooked like me! I look forward to taking many more of Ted's classes at Omnilargess. Thank you so much Ted!

  • Nathan Veenstra

    Ted's passion for photography is only surpassed by his willingness to teach others the theory and techniques to capture the images you always dreamed of. He takes time to review your photo's and shows you what makes the photo pleasing to look at or what could be done to improve the photo next time. I would highly recommend Ted's classes to anyone seeking to understand how all the features of their camera works together and provide you with the techniques to take well composed photo's. Thanks Ted for giving me a foundation upon which to build.

  • Donna George

    Hi Ted, I just want to thank you for all the wonderful teaching, constructive criticism and guidance that I received in your classes. You've helped me to be a more confident photographer. I entered my first photo contest....here in Mission....and I won. I would have never had the confidence to do that before, thank you for giving me what I needed to pursue my dreams. Thank you so much..Donna

  • Christine Doel

    Hi Ted, How are you? I hope all is well. I know we have not seen each other in awhile. If you remember, I just had my son and was expecting my daughter! Both are doing great. I thought I should catch up and let you know how my photography is going. First off, I would like to say thank you. Your classes truly helped me get to where I want to be. As of last October I decided to take it further by opening my doors to family and friends. I have a small home studio that I have started to do newborn photography and just started to shoot Family Outdoor sessions (I never imagined I would be doing that). I have continued to educate myself with editing and some online courses but I'm always finding that you have given me knowledge that sets me ahead of the class. I will always appreciate the time and effort you took to help me learn from scratch. Please take a look at some of my work, www.loveandchild.ca or @loveandchild.ca on Instagram. I still have a long way to go but am excited to show you what you have taught me. Thank you again!! Christine

  • Krystal Creelman

    Ted's an amazing teacher. He answered our questions with such passion and clarity, it got the whole class excited and eager to learn more. Thanks Ted for giving me the confidence I needed to put my creative ideas into 'focus'. Even though class is done, I now reserve every Wednesday for photography. I've already signed up for another class and look forward to taking more in the near future. Cheese, Krystal

  • Sue Iverson

    I had taken a basic one day class with Ted back in the spring and learned so much about my camera in that class that I could hardly wait to take the Photography Boot Camp course this fall. Ted is a great instructor, he balances in class instruction with hands on practice of the concepts he teaches. I look forward to taking more classes/workshops with Omnilargess in the future.

  • Maureen Hanson

    Ted taught the class with knowledge with a sense of humour and patience with questions.

  • James Orr

    Hi Ted! Thanks-you so much for putting on such a great class, Digital Bootcamp! . Prior to the class I had only used a point and shoot camera for work but with your instruction I have been able to take some really good photos with my DSLR. Your instruction was to the point, useful and informative. I have attached a few of my favorite photos taken while attending class.

    Thanks again and look forward to taking the ``manual settings class`` if it fits my schedule.

  • Mike Hines

    Ted is very knowledgeable and an excellent teacher. I learned and retained more than I thought I would. Excellent content and delivery. I am now confident with my camera!

  • Joanne Vixamar

    This workshop 9Digital Camera Bootcamp) was all I needed to know my camera inside out and let me tell you it didn't disappoint at all. I will definitely come back to take my skills to the next level.

  • Debby Evoy

    Great class (Digital Camera Bootcamp), learned a lot

    I enjoyed the class. I learned so much about my camera and how to use it. Ted did an awesome job and I felt comfortable asking questions. He is very helpful. I will recommend this class to all my friends.

  • Gary Keay

    Hi Ted, Thanks for the great work shop . I always come away with a large amount of knowledge and I put it to good use.

    Particularly with white balance. Looking forward to the next workshop. I would like to pass along some pics of my instructor and his hand signals(smile).

  • Brenda

    Thanks Ted for sending a link with your pictures! I had alot of fun and could definately see taking more classes.

  • Jo Welsh

    Spent this past Sunday morning with Ted (and a great group of fellow photographers) learning lots of great techniques and tips about outdoor photography. Ted is always happy to answer everyone's questions with patience and great detail. Some of our group were discussing our good fortune and agreed we have a gem at our own doorstep with Ted! I look forward to attending more classes with Ted and the other instructors @ Omnilargess Services in Abbotsford.

  • Heather

    Thank you again Ted for a wonderful class, I learned so much and can't wait to go shooting soon. Here are a few of my pictures, feel free to use whatever ones you want. There will be several emails for the pictures.

  • Bruce Warren

    Yet another great course! All the information that you provide is very helpful. I found that in some ways I am already using some of what you were explaining to us but any advice is good advice and most welcomed. I find that I must play more with the camera to find better ways to take shots. I am not good with people in a shot due to movement by them. More experience will help. I think for myself that I may want to take the basic course again so that I can become more familiar with the different setting in the camera, such as vivid and landscape and so forth. Let me know if one is coming up please. The picture that you enhanced came out very good considering what you had to work with. I would like to learn how to shoot in the RAW format but my editing skills are real bad because I have not figured out how to work with Photo Shop and the photo program that came with the camera( PEF ) is hard to work with. I am afraid I will lose the picture I am working with or not be able to change it back. My fears however Ted. I sent a few more than 3 pictures from the course but sent them small so as not overload your inbox. Please if you with use any you find ok in your blog. Again thanks Ted for a great day and hope many more can come.

  • Karen Abrahamson

    Hi Ted, here are a few shots from Sunday. Thanks again, I really appreciated the white balance discussion again (I think it may be sinking in) and the rule of thumb re the 50% of focal length being about the minimum for speed of hand held shots. I'll send some more shots in separate file as these are large

  • Karin

    Ted, Thanks so much for the workshop yesterday! It was probably one that I have learnt the most at in one session. I appreciated the 'hands on'...teaching, giving an assignment and then available to give input as needed. I had some 'aha' moments where I learnt more about my camera and finally understood some of my exposure issues. I loved understanding more about exposure and lighting and the various tips given to make adjustments on my camera to capture the best shot available. Thanks again!

    Maria Killam

    I have had my DSLR Camera for over 2 years and had no idea how to use it. As a colour expert, decorator and design blogger, it's so important for me to have pretty images on my blog. I had tried many times to take photos that included a window but my automatic functions (auto settings in camera) would not allow it. That one day when I learned how to turn an image from dark and bleak to a light filled space was worth the entire price of the course. Your patience and sense of humour with a bunch of novices in the class was great! Thanks again for a great boot camp! I look forward to learning more from you! Thank you so much!

    Ted, I had a good time at your workshop, very informative. I look forward to doing this again,

  • Outdoor photography

    Chrystal

    The courses offered by Omnilargess are wonderful to attend, my instructor Ted made the information simple to understand and used a number of real photography examples to help showcase the camera settings he was discussing with the class. Ted's teaching methods are done so in such a way that allows you to absorb the information step by step with your new camera and learn as you go along without missing anything along the way. It is a great casual environment to begin learning about Photography, thank you for offering these great courses!

  • Rob

    Quite enjoyed the (Indoor Flash Photography) class very informative. All I need now is practise. Thanks,

  • Janay

    Hi Ted. Thanks for the feedback. I really enjoyed the day, and taking the pictures of the girls. I did my first shoot with a couple that had just been engaged, and there was a lot of questions that I had about dealing with models! The man was very uncomfortable, and didn't look into the camera at all! I know that making everyone comfortable comes with time and practice. So hopefully it gets easier!

    I look forward to taking classes with you again soon.

  • Lea H.

    Hi Ted.

    Just wanted to say thanks. The workshop was awesome. Between the private classes and today my knowledge has been increased immensely! The quality of my images has increased.

    Thanks so much!!

    A macro lesson would be excellent. Have a good rest of the weekend.

  • Bob Young

    I really liked this workshop (Sport Photography Workshop). It was perfect for what I was looking for. Got a couple of good tips from it (back focusing for example). Really liked the gear presentation. It was interesting to see what someone like this uses in the field. You read about it but don't usually get a chance to see it and ask questions about it.

  • Gary Keay

    This (Model Photography Workshop) was just an amazing course to take. The results and knowledge gained are fantastic. Ted and David's enthusiasm, my fellow classmates sharing ideas and the pure professionalism of Kyra made it a great event.

  • Carl Steele

    Great class (Model Photography Workshop), instructors are very knowledgable and professional. Very willing to help and share their expertise. I have done many classes, and plan to do many more. Thanks again Ted for all your help and making learning fun.

  • Elliott Mellan

    Omnilargess has great courses taught by Very talented Photographers with the most up to date information. This is my tenth Class and the quality of instruction just gets better all the time.

  • Cecilia Flaming

    Thank you for organizing a great class (Model Photography Techniques)! It was very informative and I had a lot of fun with the hands on experience 🙂

  • Penelope Ames

    Dear Ted:

    There are many with the knowledge and aptitude for their chosen “passion” but, from past experience, few who have the patience, talent and general love of imparting their knowledge, as you do.

    It has been an amazing experience to feel the anxiety of learning something entirely “new”slip away, as you so calmly and expertly broke down the elements of using a digital camera, and applying its many uses. I can now see hours of enjoyment before me recording and experimenting with this amazing new tool.

    I thank you for your gift.

  • Alison Bull

    I am leaving this course a totally different photographer than I was 8 weeks ago. You have me doing things I never thought possible. I have learned so much from your weekly critiques and I truly see a difference in my photographs. It is obvious that you love being a photographer and a teacher. Your personality shines and your excitement and love for life captured with photography is infectious. I am so glad I had the opportunity to take this course with you and am looking forward to the upcoming outdoor photography walk.

    Again thank you so much!!!!

  • Fiona McComb

    I have taken two classes now thru Omnilargess and am currently signed up for one more. Really enjoy their classes and find Ted very knowledgeable and helpful. Here are a few pics from yesterdays class. Thanks again, I really enjoyed the class and will absolutely be looking at taking more classes thru you.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the digital camera workshop for beginners! Its great if your a hands on person like me so i found it really helpful to spend the afternoon practising the new skills i had learnt. Ted is a great teacher, we had a fun filled day and i cant wait to start bootcamp in 2015!!

  • Bruce Warren

    As always a great course and with so much info given. I am getting better with every shot!!
