  1. This course, part 1 & 2, is the first I watched since joining Kelby Training. After seeing the preview for the course on Kelby TV, I knew I had to join. First, I would like to say how much I sincerely appreciate Jeremy Cowart and Scott Kelby for this amazing course. I looked into Jeremy Cowart's work after seeing him on an episode of The Grid about inspiration and was awe struck by his photography . I remember hearing Scott Kelby say to look for photographer's work that is appealing/inspiring, and then learn from them. Not only did Mr. Kelby say this, he has provided this enlightening format to learn in what feels like a one-on-one experience from those that inspire us. I wish I could express how much this course has helped, inspired and restored my passion for photography, which was almost lost somewhere between the SLR 35mm world and the digital SLR realm. I'm sure there are many of us out there, like artists without paint, that have been waiting for DSLR camera technology to become affordable. This course is exactly what I needed to see what my camera is capable of in natural light and a wonderful guide to a simple and mobile lighting set-up. Thank you Mr. Kelby, for not only your incredible photography, but your vision to help people like me learn from you and other elite photographers. Thank you Mr. Cowart, for sharing your amazing talent in such a humble way that I was able to gain vast knowledge and inspiration at the same time. To sum it up, absolutely brilliant!

  2. What a day! Teaching the viewers how to see the world and find excitement in small details, taking it beyond craft and focusing on ART. Very laid-back, authentic and inspiring presenter!

  3. I really really liked this (and the others too) course of Jeremy Cowart. He is a very nice person, has nice and clear way of speaking, and has a lot of creativity and talent in him. I got a lot of good tips and info, and just cannot wait to get out and shoot myself with one reflector and one light. Great!
