“ is an incredible resource. I’ve used it to fill in gaps in my camera knowledge that I wasn’t aware I had, and that’s made my photography so much stronger. Now I understand how light works and how best to use it. The videos are awesome, well put together and easy to follow, with lots of pointers and tips for improving my photography. I can’t recommend the site enough, there’s so much more to learn!”

Taryn Everdeen, Norfolk, @taryneverdeenphotography

“If you are interested in portrait photography at all, this is THE one-stop website to use. It doesn’t matter if you are a complete beginner or more experienced, the site has everything you need. It has an enormous range of information pages covering everything from lighting to posing to editing and the best, straight-to-the-point tutorial videos that I have come across explaining so much, so quickly and making it all seem so easy. The video critiques of images from site users are highly instructive and the lively, friendly forum lets me interact with other portrait photographers at all levels so I really feel part of a community of like-minded and sharing people. I think it’s great that we can make suggestions for new videos and information pages from Paul himself. Useful weekly emails keep me up to date on what’s going on too, since the site is constantly growing and adding more content so there’s always a point in coming back for more and topping up my skills and knowledge. It’s definitely the best portrait photography site that I have come across so well done to Paul and his team!”

“I’ve found the website a very useful aid on my photography journey. I particularly like the videos and podcasts as they add another dimension and are really interesting (and the fact that Paul has such a lovely voice makes it even easier to follow along!).”

Zoe Joiner, Bicester

“ is the perfect solution, explaining in a positive, energetic and inspiring way the key components to mastering both the art and business of portrait photography. Paul and the MPP team have shown me how to see light in a new way. My skills have significantly improved. Not only am I creating more images that my clients are delighted with, but my confidence has dramatically improved, too. Of all the online training courses that I’ve tried (and I’ve tried a few!), is the one that has taught me the most. Given Paul’s Master Photographer status, being able to ask questions about anything I’m unsure about is particularly brilliant.”
