‘The Retouch Course Pro was amazing. Sinisa is a great teacher and the course was exactly what I was looking for. It seemed expensive but it was so worth it. I learned loads. Also the organisation and location is fab.’
★★★★  Jo-Anna Rohmann

‘I have now attended 2 courses at photography course London and am planning to take some 1 to 1 on some more specific things as they are so good! Retouching for beauty and fashion – we covered lots of effective techniques and I am no longer afraid of masks!! The teaching was straightforward and made complete sense, she was patient and kept us stimulated throughout…’
