I took this course at Markham. Duke, the instructor is fantastic, simple, clear, passionate about photography. Considering that I'm not too young and I have 0 experience with this type of cameras, I have to say that I left the Henry's loving photography and thinking that I can make beautiful pictures, just because, Duke made it super easy for me. I am planning to take the second level with Duke as well. I do really recommend this course to anyone.

  • Fantastic course

I took this course today. It's almost 3 hours long but it flew by. I learned so much on how to use my Nikon DSLR (5500) that would've taken me forever on my own. Glen Neville was the instructor and I highly recommend a course with him (over 40 years experience) - he made the course fun. Overall, excellent value and experience.

  • AWESOME class

I own a Pentax k-50 DSLR camera. I was enrolled in the Nikon DSLR class. My camera had slightly different pictures on the face of the buttons than the Nikon camera did but it still did the same function. The instructor was fantastic taking the time with each one of us to make sure we understood how to operate our cameras. On my own my pictures were blurry, after the class with a few adjustments my pictures look fantastic. I learned a lot. Henry's staff know their stuff, they will put you in the proper class regardless of your make of camera and skill level. Well worth the cost and time. Everybody should take this class. A fantastic opportunity and experience. Enroll today you won't be disappointed.. :) :) :)
