Our congratulations go out to Shellaine Ulmer who is the first recipient of our diploma in Portrait Photography.

Guaranteed to significantly improve your confidence and quality of photographs in one short weekend. By far, one of the best classes I've attended for a long time.Donna S.
This class was, for me, one of the most practical experiences I have had in the many classes I have taken to hone my photographic skills. The theoretical aspects of macro photography were well-explained beforehand, followed by the full-day opportunity to put this learning into practice. Of particular value was the ongoing chance to share our attempts and receive honest critical appraisal of the positives and negatives of each image. I appreciated Paul's understanding that class members were all at different points on the continuum of learning, as well as his ability to make concepts clearer through demonstration and guidance. I will DEFINITELY be signing up for another BSOP course!!Colleen S.
Paul is very knowledgeable on any photography topic and all technology related to it. He was patient throughout the course as we asked lots of questions and wouldn't move on until it was answered. He kept it interesting by demonstrations and adding his dry humour. The second day was all our photography and the challenges he presented were both interesting and fun. Reviewing everyone's photos was great and Paul was encouraging and positive throughout. Overall an excellent instructor and topic and one of the best photography courses I have taken. I will definitely be taking more courses from BSOP.Bob D.
As someone who's been self-taught on almost everything I've learned in the creative fields, it's incredible to learn so much in such a short period of time. I wish I'd discovered your school sooner!Nilam V.
Since I received my camera as a gift I was almost too intimidated to use it, especially taking it off the automatic settings. I really enjoyed Paul's straightforwardness and sense of humor to help relieve any apprehension I felt using all the features on my camera. For that I thank you Paul. For the first time I truly understand Aperture, ISO & Shutter Speed, and much much more. I was so excited to discovery more about photography that I rushed home that first night of classes and registered for my next class! I would highly recommend this class. Take the first step and register - you won't be sorry that you did it!Diane D.
I found Chris Stambaugh to be an enthusiastic, knowledgeable and outgoing teacher who is full of information he is more than willing to share.Don R.
