Alex's students saying:

I have come to this course sort of influenced by some tutorials from Alex I saw elsewhere. In all honesty, my expectations were mitigated but the Thanksgiving sale influenced my decision. From the first lesson of the first unit, it was obvious I made the right choice.
Since then, I went thru 4 Units in less than a month. It is amazing how much I did NOT know. I am learning so frigging much and I’m only at half the course.
I will never thank Alex enough for all the light (no pun) he has shed on so many things I thought I knew or didn’t even know existed.
I am glad I paid half-price thanks to the sales, but knowing what’s in that course now, I would pay the full price with no hesitation at all. It is worth it.
Finally, I think I will finish the course ahead of time and whether I get certified or not, I will take the whole course again because there is no way anyone can retain everything from just one viewing, there is just too much information, all of it worthy.
One day perhaps, our paths will cross and I will thank you Alex in person.

We reached a point in our photography were we felt like we had hit a dead end and didn’t know how to improve our technique. That’s when we came across Photigy. Alex and his team not only showed us new ideas but gave us encouragement to explore new possibilities though improvisation. This opened up a whole new world for us and for that we cannot thank Alex and his team enough.
~  James Shannon

I fell into product photography by chance after doing tertiary studies in photo imaging. I felt your courses were at a premium price but I am shocked at how much I learn from each and every course. This is unaccountably the best place to be if you want to specialize in product photography. Your lessons are amazing and inspiring. Thank you so much.
