What Others Are Saying About Blake’s Teaching Methods

This is the best site I have come across. The majority of other sites offer skill training and leave you feeling short changed when the total learning experience is very limited. Your site offers innovation on every occasion.


Your tutorials are not only well written, but do not work on the premise that your audience are not ‘experts’, in other words, you tend to be quite specific about who you target.


I appreciate the tutorials and the revelations you are sharing with everyone. A number of photographers won’t even tell you their camera settings let alone how they post processed. You have provided a number of people with new tools to add to their workflows.
