Testimonials

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

    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 was an exceptional teacher, knowledgeable in every aspect of the course, and always answered every students question thoroughly. You can see Ted has a passion for photography and made the learning experience seem like a fun evening with some friends. I learned more than I ever expected, and I am very excited to take my photography to the next level. I've already booked another course with Red for Lightroom, and Im sure I'll book more in the coming months. Taking any of Ted's classes for a must for anyone using a camera!

  • Kathy Barlow

    I really enjoyed the workshop, and felt that I learned a lot. Ted is a great instructor - interesting, supportive and encouraging, good sense of humour.
    I wish you advertised better, as I had been looking for a photography class for a couple of years before I finally stumbled across Omnilargess.

  • Hope Connelly

    I recently took the introductory photography workshop and I had an absolute blast! The instructor was extremely knowledgeable and was able to answer all questions the students had without hesitation. Not only was he knowledgeable he made the workshop fun too!
    I am hoping to take the photography boot camp with a friend in the near future

  • Sandra Marshall

    Thank you so much for making photography such an interesting and fun part of my life. Just wanted to share and let you know that tonight in my backyard I was thinking of all I learned through the night photography class when I took some photos of the beautiful full moon and reflections on our lake.
    Tomorrow I'm meeting a small group of your students at Westminster Abbey.

  • Mike DeBoer

    Ted is a very knowledgeable instructor. He was able to patiently help anyone regardless of equipment.
    He was able to add some humor as well, made the classes much more fun.
    I would still be on Automatic if it were not for Ted and the classes, Thanks!
    I am hoping to take the photography boot camp with a friend in the near future

  • Leah Blume

    Loved the class! Instructor was awesome and made it very comfortable to ask questions and ask for help. I will definitely be recommending Omnilargess to friends and family! I am hoping to take the photography boot camp with a friend in the near future

  • FRANCINE ROULSTON

    Loved it. It was everything I was needing to help understand my camera better. Out instructor Ted is a patient, knowledgeable and professional teacher. I will be signing up for future classes.

    I would recommend the Digital Photography Boot Camp to anyone who wants to get the most value out of their DSLR
    Before participating in the Digital Photography Bootcamp, my experience / knowledge with a DSLR was very basic. I owned my DSLR for a few years but rarely took it out of Auto mode.
    After completing the boot camp, I am very comfortable shooting in Manual, Shutter or Aperture Priority. Understanding these settings, along with achieving a correct exposure and composition have taken my ability to produce an interesting photograph to the next level. I will share photographs pre and Post boot camp with Omnilargess, and you can judge for yourself...

  • Darcie Connell

    If you and your camera are stuck in ``Auto Mode`` then Omnilargess is for you! The class was so eye-opening, I can't believe I've waited so long to sign up. I learned how to get out of automode and start experimenting with shutterspeed, aperture, metering system, and more! This class is a great boost of confidence for any new photographer. I highly recommend it! And a big personal ``thanks`` to Ted who was an extremely knowledgable, patient, and helpful instructor.

    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!

  • 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

    My experience with Ted was incredible. Within half an hour of being in the class room, I had already learned three new skills that I had no idea I even needed to know when operating my nikon DSLR camera and by the time the several hour course was finished, I was seeing photography in a completely new way. I have always loved and enjoyed photography but now I am excited to take it to the next level and practise everything Ted had graciously taught me. There is no ``dumb questions`` in Ted's classes, he makes you feel very comfortable and moves at a pace that works for everyone in the group. He has a special way of getting everyone to see their own potential and feeling relaxed and excited about photography, which I really appreciated. Instead of just talking at you, he teaches with grace and wisdom and makes you use your critical thinking skills so that you are truly absorbing and understanding what you are learning. It is a lot of fun getting out and shooting photos with Ted once you have the lesson down. Thanks again for your support and your expertise Ted, can't wait until the next class!

  • Austin Underwood

    This class (Beginners Digital Camera workshop) was very useful for those of us who need to understand the basics of how to take the pictures. I was very satisfied

    Correne webster

    Excellent class. I did the beginners class, I knew nothing about my new camera and was nervous. I felt extremely comfortable to ask questions. The instructor, Ted was very helpful and knowledgable. I learnt so much in the one day workshop. I'm looking forward to practicing all the new info I learnt. Beyond my expectations. Looking forward to practicing what I learnt. I was a little nervous as I knew nothing about my camera, but I had nothing to be nervous about as the instructor was extremely helpful.

    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.
