Hi Paul, I am a beginner, I want to learn how to take great pics. I have a new camera (Canon t7) and have no clue how to use it. I’m hoping to learn a lot. Thanks for having me.
Thanks a lot to share your expertise and knowledge!! From Mexico.
Loved the style of your work and the you tube tutorials so thought it ws time I jumped in. Looking forward to learning all I can. Cheers from Mihai Gheorghe fotograf nunta!
Hi Paul, I’ve been listening to the podcast and greatly enjoying. Looking forward to learning from you, watching the critiques (reviews), and checking out the room sets. Michael
Glad to have signed up. Look forward to seeing how all this works
Hi Paul, recently rediscovered N-Photo magazine and your beautiful images so thought I’d pick up some tips here. Looking forward to the journey.
Hi Paul, so found out about you through NPhoto, looking forward to advancing some of my skills , just to say the photo in the magazine is amazing,.. 👌
Here we go!!! Just signed up !
Lovely to have you on board! Have fun!
Hi Paul, came across your podcast, listen to 4 or 5 episodes back to back great. Later when on your website, very impressed with your training and down to earth approach while still delivering amazing images and your professional approach. You are very encouraging many thanks from Oregon, originally from N.Ireland.
I love this page. It was never meant to be anything other than a simple login confirmation but it is full of the loveliest comments. Thank you Brian, you’ve made my day! Shout if there is anything you think we haven’t covered that you’d like to see. Hope all is well over there in Oregon!
Hello and thank you for the add to this community. Just joined from Nova Scotia after listening to the podcast for the past few months.
Ah, now that is a part of the world I haven’t been able to visit yet – one day! Welcome to the site and if there’s anything you think would be useful then let me know. 🙂
Hello to everyone and wish you well in this difficult time, I Joined at last, I have Paul’s book and read his article each month in professional photo, Looking forward to being a member of this group.
Lovely to have you on board! Shout if you need anything. 🙂
And finally I get round to joining you on here Paul.
Great to have you on board David! Would love to hear of anything you think would be useful – just let me know 🙂
Hi Paul, I haven’t scoured through everything yet, so this might be here somewhere. What would be a huge help to me is finding a quicker way to get my images from out of camera raw to viewing ready jpegs in double quick time. It currently takes me about 30 to 40 minutes a session and as I do usually 4 shoots a day, that’s 2 to 2 1/2 hours spent doing this. I’ve gradually developed a pretty convoluted way of doing things but it does give me nice results, I just want to get there quicker. Typically I shoot… Read more »
HI David. I’ll see what I can come up with. There’s no easy way to design your workflow – all workflows are sub-optimal in the end but I’ll try and figure a video that walks through ours here. The thing about the workflow is there are different time frames to optimise: short term (the initial edit / production); medium term (the lifetime of the job, the ordering of products etc.) and the long term (portfolio / competition images from the job.). A workflow has to be designed for all the bits you need with the highest quality for the lowest… Read more »
Looking forward to being part of this group
Lovely to have you on board Trixie! Just shout if you have any questions at all!
Great to be on board, I’m sure I will learn plenty.
I have joined to learn how to improve the quality of my portraits. One of my favorite images of yours is the black and white portrait of elderly lady ,who looked to have lived so much her face told a story and was so engaging . 10 out of 10 from me . Inspirational . Thank you
Ah, that’s very kind of you! The old lady was Pauline – she told as many stories as her face suggested! Lovely lady. Hope you enjoy the site and let us know if there’s anything you’d like us to cover!
Thanks to me, I can be part of the group. I am happy to improve my photographic skills.
Best regards Frank
Welcome aboard! Let us know if there is anything specific we can provide 🙂
Hey everyone. Happy to be part of the group. Listened to the podcasts and thought I would continue my learning here. It’s inspiring to hear how you made the leap into photography Paul, especially as you were already in a professional career. I think there are many of us who are on the fence looking for a way in.
Thank you! Glad the podcast is useful. If the house next door would finish up with the lawn-mowing I might get to record one today in these interesting times! Also keep an eye out in the next few months as we’re looking to build a whole series of resources for photographers trying to work out how to transition to ‘pro’ as it can be really daunting (it certainly was when I did it!) In the meantime make the most of the site and shout if there is anything we can help with.
Loved the style of your work and the you tube tutorials so thought it ws time I jumped in. Looking forward to learning all I can.
Thanks Mike! Hope you’re enjoying the site!
Super happy to have found this group. I am a boudoir photographer and have a small in home studio, with one window. I am trying to get some insight on lighting techniques using natural light as well as refresh my memory on some photo basics. Really looking forward to going through all of the material. Thank you!
Hi everybody, just joined. Looking forward to adding to my knowledge on here

Very glad to have joined in this group discussion. Hope that will find great help from this forum as a beginners.
Looking to keep learning.
Hi all, I have played around in a couple of studio’s in the last year. Hoping to learn more on lighting styles, and capturing the elusive great portrait more consistently.
I’ve followed your YouTube tutorials on dog photography and only just come across this group. My main interests are wildlife and equine photography. Hoping to become half as good as you, Paul … I’d settle for that!
I am really looking forward to connecting with the group and exploring the site . I am a Landscape and seascape photographer now beginning to learn about portrait photography. So much to learn! I’ve already seen some lovely work here! I’m keen to explore how to create superb low-key portraits with off-camera flash. Have just bought a snoot!
Thank you! Good to meet you all on here 😃
Hi Paul… pleased I have finally got here ! Looking forward to improving my knowledge of photography 🙂
Hi Paul I found the website through the podcasts and really enjoying them although I am playing catch up from the earlier ones. I will try to get onto the forums later and post a few images for critique.
I have a love for photography, and I am looking forward to learning new skills in all aspects of photography.
i’m totally excited
I’m pleased to have found this site. My photography is mainly portraits/documentary daily life of children, mainly grandchildren. I’m a very happy Fuji user.
Hello! Great to be here, looking forward to learning , thank for accepting me 🙂
Thank you for accepting me. Thank you for providing such a wealth of knowledge in one Website! Having just bought a Nikon D750 I am looking to get the best out of this camera. I plan to look at all genres of photography as I’m not sure which avenue to pursue at the moment. This site is a wonderful resource and I am sure glad I have found it! I have had a quick look around the site and it is a minefield of information just waiting to be learnt from. So much to do and so little time to… Read more »
Hi All! Currently work as a television cameraman but want to develop my stills photography with the eventual aim to run a full-time pet photography business. Very excited to be here. Thanks for all your great tips and hard work Paul and team!
hi all, been listening to the podcast and looking forward to improving my portrait photography.
Nice to meet you @BobF glad to have you on board! Let us know if there’s anything you’d like us to cover!
Looking forward to developing ideas and learning more about lighting. Learning more in general – you never know it all, there’s always something new to learn.
Hi @nickiphotos it’s great to have you board. You’re right about always learning (there are some days I wonder what I’ve been doing all these years! Always stuff out there to blow your mind!) Welcome!
Good evening, I have joined to improve my portrait techniques, particularly around lightening beyond the basic studio set-up.
Nice to meet you @JoeHengistbury ! I love studio lighting – but I only ever really use the basic studio set-up (complexity doesn’t really equate to quality!) Can’t wait to see what you create!
G’day Paul @razorbyte.photography here. Pleased to of joined your community
