Awesome, very enlightening

Bruno Mortier


Great course for learning how to increase your chances for getting a photo "just right" upon capture.

Justin Costley


Over the years I started with Xt10 then moved up to Xt3 and now Xt5 and still was able to learn things from this course never too old to learn.

Phil Gibbs


I love each and everyone of your courses. They allow me to breeze through when I feel I know the subject material, but they also allow me to sit and ponder and think until at last I get it. I like that I can just listen and watch or I can read and listen at the same time. Your courses are a great value and I am learning a lot!

Ron Moore


This is, by far IMHO, the best set of courses on the Fujifilm family of cameras. It has appeal to those wishing to be better with photography, but it is especially useful for those of us with Fuji X cameras. I’ve tried MasterClass, LinkedIn, and Udemy in addition to just plain YouTube. John Peltier’s courses beat them hands down. John is knowledgeable, presents well, and is very thorough. Highly recommended! Five stars!

John Flores


John is a fabulous teacher. This course is rich and deep. Far more than I expected. I learned so much.

Bryan Stern


This course taught me a better understanding of my controls on the Fuji XT4. These lessons were worth every penny spent even when the currency was converted to a higher dollar amount. Stop wasting your time flipping YouTube channels for you will find everything you want and more all here in one spot.

Allan Newman


This course is a game changer for me. Getting the JPEG images right in camera is priceless

Freddy Ng


Liked the fact that when a answer in the questionnaire was answered wrong the correct answer and an explanation was given

Richard Henderson


This course helped me understand the many choices I can and should make before I take a photograph. I don’t want to spend hours in Lightroom adjusting my pictures. I want to spend my time taking great pictures. This course helped me do that. Thank you, John

Donald Merrill


As a newbie I don't necessarily know what all those camera functions actually do. This course helped me understand my Fujifilm camera way better. Instead of taking years to learn it all, this course has taught me how to set up my camera to take beautiful photos. Now I'm excited to get out there and try all this stuff out.
