Mike is a great workshop facilitator for photography. He is very experienced and makes things easy to understand when learning to use the different functions of a camera and creating good composition in photos. I have enjoyed working with him for a couple of workshops now and would certainly recommend his company for people who are interested in pursuing photography.
The owner of Clock Tower Images Mike Byrne is a very knowledgeable photographer. He is very experienced and goes above and beyond to make your time with him worthwhile.
My Son and husband not only had a great time; they learned to use their camera's better and brought home some great images!
It was a great class would love to do more!
It was a great gift idea for budding photography buffs. The two who went learned a great deal and appreciated Mike's knowledge and insight.
Loved the scavenger hunt Groupon!
I felt the information was rushed through but that was probably because the class size was so large and the skill levels so varied. It seems to me that having smaller, more level specefic classes would be better. The concept is a good one, it just needs refinement.
I have just attended the first of four sessions and so far am quite impressed. You might want to check again after we complete all four sessions
Enjoyable professional & relaxed
From Our Editors
Founded in 2001 by photographic pair Mike Byrne and Gavin Young, Clock Tower Images initially abetted educational publishers, such as Disney and Discovery Channel, by supplying them with still and moving images. Since then, the ever-expanding business has recruited shutterbug Isobel Springett and fashioned a wealth of new programs geared around the trio's interests. In addition to its portraiture program, Clock Tower Images expertly frames horses —a passion of Isobel's—and a massive array of sporting events, including, in Mike's case, events at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics and 2012 London Summer Olympics.
Mike and Isobel instill their image-capturing expertise into students at hands-on workshops and courses in Victoria and Courtenay, where up to eight apprentices at a time learn the ins and outs of landscape, portrait, wildlife and sports photography. For pupils eager to break out of the classroom, Clock Tower Images arranges a number of guided field trips and international photo tours that capture North America's west coast landscapes and wildlife, as well as numerous African locales, and into the dreams of slumbering migratory birds.
