  1. Excellent interview! Glyn Dewis is refreshingly honest and candid about his career, how developed his style and formed a successful business. I'm a fan of his work, and yes, Glyn is the type of guy I'd enjoy hangng out with over a beer, and talk all things photography.

  2. Glyn, a different take on much of the courses on Kelby training but a very insightful & valuable interview nonetheless. I think the things you’ve discussed will resonant with many Kelby training users who have just started out in business or, like me, who haven’t as yet but would like to at some point in the future. I’ve taken on board your feedback about taking time to grow before taking that plunge of turning something I enjoy into a business. Very much looking forward seeing your photoshot / photoshop training session when it's released on the site.

  4. A great interview containing so much information & advice that, I think, many people will come away feeling positive & driven. To feel you're not alone in the difficulties of this industry is very important, Glyn speaks very honestly about those feelings, helping you see the positive side and encouraging you to be your best. Most of all, you must enjoy it. Looking forward to seeing more of your classes.

  5. When I realized this course was an interview I thought, how would this help me, but as it was an interview of Glyn I started watching anyway. 5 minutes into the interview and I was hooked, and obviously I watched the entire interview and Glyn provided so much good information that I actually watched it twice already! All I have to say about is...thank you very much!

  6. Thanks Glyn and Mia! I got some really valuable tips and advice from the video! I think Glyn is a great inspiration and comes from a very similar background to myself! Really informative, insightful and interesting guy! Thank you! - Francesca http://www.francescahughes.com
