I set up an in home studio, bought a strobe, a giant Octobox ... but I had no clue how to use it!I Tried to watch Youtube tutorials, read books and manuals about it ... and nothing seemed to help me. I lost over 3 months of work, until I found Michael Zero’s website.

As soon I took his private lesson it all changed. I finally learn everything I needed and was able to open my Studio and schedule clients. Michael was very patient, had so much knowledge about the subject and taught me everything about my equipment and flash light. It was so helpful and much better than online tutorials.

Nothing can beat the in-person education. It definitely changed my game.

Being a natural light photographer looking to enter the world of flash photography I decided to take Michaels private class and it was an excellent decision. He took time to call ahead to find out exactly what I was looking to learn and tailored the session to my needs. Michaels passion for photography shined throughout the class and he was always patient while teaching. I left his class with a renewed passion for photography and I can’t wait to create images using these new techniques. Thank you Michael!

Excellent instructor! I took the 1 to 1 private 3 hour class this because I needed help with understanding and taking better pictures with flash.

Michael called in advance to make sure he was set up to demonstrate how to be consistent to get exactly what I was trying to achieve. After reviewing my pictures and listening to my frustrations, he explained why I had not been able to do so in the past.

I appreciated that he went into advanced level detail that helped me understand how to capture the light that will add the artistry sharpness and uniqueness that I was looking for in my pictures. This one to one class was more than I expected and well worth the money!

I’ve been taking photos professionally for 5 years now for my job as a product photographer, but as it turned out, there was a ton that I didn’t know about (lighting techniques, camera settings, gear, etc.). It’s easy to get into a slump with your photography, always resorting to same old tried-and-true methods. This class definitely reenergized me to spice up my shots.
