    ‘I took the Photoshop Foundation Level 1 and have really enjoyed it. It was a phenomenal introductory into Photoshop for me as a beginner. I hope to be able to take with you some other courses in the near future.’
    ★★★★★  Max Blau

    ‘Mikael was a great tutor, and both the content and delivery were fantastic – well-paced, thorough and with plenty of opportunity to try things out and to ask questions at every stage. I’ll definitely be back for part 2’
    ★★★★★  Cathy Pyle

    ‘Easy booking, great having reminder emails and easy instructions leading up to the course, course was very personal, friendly instructor and overall brilliantly run!’
    ★★★★★  Tom Pointer

    ‘I really enjoyed the Photoshop Foundation. The studio was lovely, the class size was small and it was a good combination of teaching and hands-on, practical tasks. I never thought I'd be able to produce images like that so quickly and I've already utilised the skills in my job. I'm extremely tempted to book for Level 2 and would recommend Level 1 for everyone.’
    ★★★★★  Donna Marie Howard
