From amateur photographer to photography competition winner!
Before starting with iPhotography, Tim considered himself an amateur photographer, but wanted to learn how to develop his own unique style and learn new photography techniques, to enable him to take striking, contemporary, modern images like the professionals.
“For me it is all about making that connection between the animal and myself, and then showing the world how I see them.”
– Tim Archer
He didn’t have the time to read books and found he hadn’t learnt enough from other courses/classes that he had previously taken, but he knew that he wanted to do something meaningful with his life and join a community of like-minded photographers.
Through iPhotography he found an interactive course and community, where he could have his photography work critiqued by experts, learn exciting new techniques, without having to spend a fortune on fancy new equipment.
Since taking iPhotography Course, Tim has had several successes. His best achievement was winning 1st and second place in the Residence of Marwell Zoo category, at his local zoo. His two winning photos were turned into large billboards and put on display for a year. They can still be seen on display at the zoo until December 2016.
iPhotography Course helped give him the confidence to take on paid jobs doing Baby shoots and even a few Wedding shoots (although weddings still make him nervous) – eek!
