Don't Take Our Word for It

Great Big Photography World is a great photography site

Great Big Photography World is a great photography site where, if you are a photographer lover, you can learn so much about all photographic genres and many tips and tricks. I read many useful advices to improve my photographic skills. I enjoy also photo contests in which I took part and so glad I sometimes won because I’m only an amateur photographer which takes her photos with mobile.

Such a great website for learning about photography!

I have found this website to be useful again and again in answering questions I have about photography. I even ended up downloading and using some of their presets which have been great. There is loads of great advice and it feels like a real community of photographers keen to support each other.

Great Big Photography World: A Superb Journey of Learning and Skill Enhancement for All Levels

This has been a great course. Everyone I have interacted with has been very helpful and friendly. The courses I took are fun and interactive. I have not been involved in photography for several years and the 365 course has been a great review with a great teacher. I would highly recommend Great Big Photography World to anyone that wants to learn more about photography and improve their skills no matter what level you are at.

Great online photography community!

The administrator Taya Iv is extremely helpful & encouraging with her expert advice & constructive criticism. The varied photography courses are informative, inspiring, & fun. The photo contests are also a lot of fun & helped me to grow as a photographer. And I enjoyed writing posts in the subforum “Inspiring Photographers & Photographs” where I got to share & introduce some of my favorite photographic artists to the community.

Love the community!

My experience with this community has been great since I joined the group some years ago! I enjoy this group a lot because there are many interesting videos about photography which are very useful, interesting courses ( I had the opportunity to follow Taya’ s course “Self-portrait Photography indoors on a Budget” and I must say it taught me a lot about this new genre to me, giving me some tips and tricks or some useful info about lens or other photographic stuff I didn’t know before. It has been so well organized as there are also written modules for each video (easier for me as I’m Italian).

Moreover, I love their idea to edit members’ photos so that we can better learn to use different tools about post processing which I love and seeing the result about your shot is always so interesting especially when it comes from a professional photographer as Taya. I also enjoy photography contests here: it’s always great to admire other’s photographs and it’s a challenge too…you also get involved in new and different subjects. So thank you for all you offer on this great site!
