Anyone been on one of the 3/4 days Annabel Williams courses, particularly the 'A to Z of Photography Business' or the 'Realise your Potential' courses?

i'm considering enroling myself, so any comments from past 'students' would be really useful..

thanks

I went on a 1 day wedding course with Annabel Williams a few years back. It was ok but a lot of money really for what it was. Her books are probably just as informative.

I went on the Natural and Artifical lighting course there with Brett Harkness (won the course in the ePZ Christmas give-away - thanks ePZ!!!) Course was very fast paced, and interesting, but too many people to really get much practice time on the day. Majority of the hands on bit was Brett setting up the shots & then everyone else duplicating - was a bit frustrating, but that's maybe just me.

Brett was v interesting though and spent some time walking through examples of his work and how he set up the lighting for the photos. The speed at which he set up the shots on the day was really something! Gave a good taste of the pace that you would need to work at to achieve his level.

Overall a good course, if at time a bit frustrating. Not sure I'd pay to go on another if this one was indicative - they're not cheap.

if you're doing it on a pro semi-pro basis, Business Link will pay 60% of the fees

I just rang Business link, asked them about getting 60 % of fees, they said 'computer says nooooo'. ( they were very helpful though)

Might be where you live - funding for non-accredited courses isn't available everywhere. It's unusual for anything to be available in York, as we're not deprived enough.
I secured funding for a course I'm meant to be on now, but having received nothing from the provider, and having to get child care for 4 days and drive 500 miles, I wasn't willing to risk turning up and finding nothing.
You do have to pay for the course initially, which is fair enough.

Interesting, what are you expecting to get out of an AW course, Martin?

Hello Steve,
The business side of photography, I want to learn how to prostitute my art. Smile

Do you get committed pre or post course completion please? Smile

I attended a one day AW course and it was superb. I look forward to any post course feedback.
