Tomorrow is my last day of my 5 weeks with First Point Photography doing my diploma and work experience. It has honestly been one of the greatest things I have ever done. Not just learning about becoming a photographer but everything that goes hand in hand. The staff at the studio are amazing very welcoming and very professional. The models that I worked with children and adult have been fantastic and fun to work with. During my time on work experience they have made me feel like part of the team. Working on day to day jobs in the studio dealing with customers orders from creating DVD’S of customers images to processing there orders into prints and then onto handing over the final products. Working on their photo shoots and even a little modeling myself. My personal photography has gone from strength to strength with their knowledge playing a vital part in that. I would just like to say a big thank you to you all for everything that you have helped me achieve so far.

What a fantastic opportunity of having two weeks work experience. What other course do you know of that would first teach you all the necessary skills involved in conducting studio and portrait photography and then invite you to attend a further two weeks of work experience!
I would like to personally thank Paul and his staff for an outstanding package that has placed me in good stead for driving forward and opening my own studio in the very near future. I wish you all well for the future and thank you again for delivering such a brilliant and informative course conducted in a very friendly atmosphere

I’ve just finished the 3 week course and absolutely loved it. The staff are fantastic – nothing is too much for this team, they go above and beyond! It was a well constructed course with a good mix of teaching both in and out of the classroom. I couldn’t recommend this course more highly.
A massive thank you to Paul, Stacey, Megan and Jo

The programme was constructed well with progressing difficulty. The shoots were also organised well and were varied well to reflect the real world.  Thoroughly enjoyable course and the staff are fantastic!

George Ackbar

Completed the 15 Day Advanced Portrait & Wedding Photography and Digital manipulation Course during July 2016. Firstly I want to thank the owner, Paul Brook, for sharing his working knowledge in this genre. A massive thanks also to Jo Walker, for the behind the scenes administration and coordination that got me to the course. The models were very patient whilst the 6 of us all wanted the best from our shoots. Thanks to Frazer, Laura, Zoe, Emily, Jo and lastly Rachael for braving all. I made some great connections and new friendships with similar minded people, (plus one top lad was also a fellow Leicester supporter). What I thought I knew was enhanced, and I learnt of wealth of new photography knowledge and skills. A final thanks to Stacey Jones. Your knowledge of manipulating photos was a great eye opener. We all think we are good, but it helps to be better, and these guys have helped me to do that.  “Everyday is a school day”

For anyone wanting to advance their portrait or wedding photography or their Photoshop skills there can be no better place to go than First Point Photography. Paul, Stacey and Jo offer what I believe is the most comprehensive guidance available, and it is all delivered with great care and attention. I have just finished a course with them and it exceeded all my hopes and expectations. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

Excellent, loved it, incredibly hands on and the whole team will do anything they can to help you with all aspects of the course and beyond. Can not praise first point photography enough, fairly gutted my course has come to end its been brilliant.
