  • <p>I have taken quite a few courses with createlive and this was by far one of the best. Ian is a fantastic teacher and remarkable at describing what he is doing and his thought process clearly. There is so much good information in this course, I definitely plan on buying this class. Not only is Ian a great teacher, but he also seems to genuinely want to help other photographers and see them succeed. You can tell he cares more about seeing good pictures of nature than anything else. I cannot recommend this course enough. Whether you are a beginner who shoots landscape photography as a hobby or a professional who already specializes in landscape photography, this class has something to offer and will expand your skill set. Can&#39;t thank Ian enough and I hope he does another course soon. </p>
  • <p>Ian is a great teacher and it is great when some one who &quot;can do&quot;, can also explain how he does it. Clearly, his experience and commitment are why he is good at what he does. There is a lot more to a great photo than getting the camera settings and filters right. Ian did his best to help us understand what to look for when &quot;working the scene&quot; and finding a good composition without distractions. A great course. Thank you, Creative Live and Ian Shive.</p>
  • <p>Amazing course. Ian Shive is a wonderful teacher, as well as photographer, and it all comes across. I was glued to my computer for the entire 3 days when the class was live, and just had to purchase it so I don&#39;t lose any of it. The bonus materials alone are worth the purchase price. </p> <p>I&#39;ve got a trip coming up soon and will have the opportunity to put some of what Ian said into practice; and love that I can have it with me on my portable devices so I can refresh my memory and reinforce it all. Great to have on a long plane ride.</p> <p>If you are on the fence, get off that fence and go purchase this great course!!! You won&#39;t be sorry.</p> <p>My thanks to CreativeLive, and Ian Shive for giving us this wonderful opportunity to not only learn, but to actually be in the field with Ian.</p>
