        What they thought about the course

        I want to write a review of Audrey. But… how do I start? Audrey’s recipe consists of several ingredients. One of them is: the content of the workshops. Audrey promises and gives a lot. And the best part is that she gives you the promised content, but twice as much! Usually, it’s just the opposite. Her workflow, her tips, her tricks… she reveals everything. You can ask Audrey anything. And that’s during the workshop, but also afterwards. It’s great that the workshops can be viewed for a year afterwards. But on top of that, you can really send all your questions: she answers very quickly with a precise and complete solution. I don’t know how she does it honestly. It hasn’t applied to me yet, but I think Audrey is able to explain something 8, 9 … times, until the participant understands. Because that is her goal: to pass on her knowledge to people and to do it as well and as completely as possible. No one should be left out. So I’m gradually coming to the second “ingredient”: Audrey herself, her personality. Admit it.

        Being a semi-professional dogphotographer I bought Audreys book “The Complete Guide To Dog Photography” to improve my photography and editing skills. The name of the book sums it all up because it really is a complete Guide! It is a perfect companion for photographers of all levels with a lot of info on equipment, camera settings, composition, shooting techniques and of course editing. Along with plenty of tips and tricks. The book is accompanied by a series of great webinars in which Audreys teaches the different techniques she uses in her Editing Worksflows in Photoshop. She goes into every detail and takes her time to answer all the questions that come up. With her enthousiastic style she makes every webinar something to look foward to. I sincerely recommend this course to everyone who is interested in dog photography! Is is absolutely worth the investment!

        I have really enjoyed these webinars, and could not have asked for a better teacher than you, Audrey! Everything you do is explained so detailed, and it’s easy to understand everything you say. It’s really been a unique experience to be able to see the exact workflow of a photographer being shared in such detail, and with such passion. Being together with everyone live has also been a great experience. You really can’t find that everywhere, and I’m so thankful to have been given the opportunity to learn from you.

        I have been following Audrey’s work for over a year and see her as a role model. When her book came out, I was so excited to finally be able to hold it in my hands. To be honest, I didn’t expect that there would even be 5 webinars – in live! Audrey took the time to show the special work steps that she explains in the book and describes them with a sample photo in Photoshop. She was open to all questions, always in a good mood and so friendly to everyone. The WhatsApp group and the forum that they offered specifically for this course rounds off the package perfectly and you feel wonderfully cared for. As a professional I have also learned a lot of tips, tricks and detailed image processing steps that I had never considered before. Thank you for this great book and all-round carefree package. The wait was worth it!
