Digital Photography is many things to many people and there is certainly no end of help on the web and in real life classrooms where you can learn just about everything there is to learn about taking a great picture and this is a review of one of them based along Learn 2 earns criteria of offering value for money learning experiences that are not scams and offer you either free initial tuition or guarantees!
Is it a scam? No, he has helped millions of Digital Camera users over the years with many positivecomments on his sites.
Is it value for money? A basic course on how a camera works in a studio is going to cost you many hundreds of Pounds. So yes his course is incredible value for money. I am not going to put the price in here as it will probably be variable with periodic offers, best to check yourself but the costs is well below $100 and there are many add-ons extras so I’m going with yes it is value for money.
Any free tuition? No but it offers and Blue Chip money back guarantee. You don’t offer this is if you do not offer something of exceptional value.
