  1. This course was WONDERFUL! The materials were so clear, informative and inspiring! More than anything, though, Natalie has a way of encouraging that really creates a space for creative shooting. I feel so much more inclined now to try shooting in different types of light and situations where I would have just walked by it in the past. I feel so grateful to have been a full participation student for this course. Highly highly recommend!

    This was my first workshop from Click Photo School and it has exceeded my hopes and expectations! Natalie is such a fantastic teacher! She really motivates you to think creatively before shooting as well as editing. This class reinforced some techniques I had tried previously and introduced some new ones. It gave me some new places to look for inspiration that is consistent with my style. The information provided in the pdf’s and videos is so valuable in content and is very well presented. Natalie’s CC is detailed and very helpful – I’d highly recommend taking this class as a full participant. I’m now looking forward to photographing the rest my family’s adventures this this summer!

  3. Natalie is so inspirational in this class. She is such a great teacher! I hope to see more classes from her in the future! The two weeks went by way too fast, but she got me out of a rut for sure. This class is for anyone from beginners to long time shooters. She helped me to look at things in new light – literally, lol. Her assignments really force you to push yourself, they are very though provoking. I only wish I had more time to devote to the class.

    I was very impressed by her and looked forward to the class when she started it out with a Zoom meeting so we could all meet and greet. That helped so much in knowing where everyone in the class was coming from in their photography walk. It was great to put faces to names.

    Her PDF’s and videos were very well done and her images in themselves were motivating. She has such a fun and contagious personality and her critiques were very thorough. I appreciated that so much. She was very quick to respond to questions and comments. I highly recommend doing full participation, you will learn so much more from her insights.

  4. Hello love , I am very interested in your course but i have a question i’m still confused about , so the full participation course can i do the assignments and lessons on my own time because i work and have different times frames for my schedule or is the full participation like a class that i have to attend at a certain time ?

    1. Natalie Greenroyd

      Yes, with both full participation and study along you can do the work on your own time. The difference between the two is that with full participation, you can participate in the online discussions and you will receive critiques on your assignments. Hope you can join us!

  5. Natalie truly inspires you in this course. Yes, I took this as a full-on professional who felt like I was in a rut and needed to get back to basics. It was totally worth it! Natalie’s materials are wonderful, and her assignments are challenging in the best way. She offers thoughtful critiques and truly cares about the progress of her students. I definitely recommend taking this course full-participation to get the full value of her expertise. And if you can only do study along, you will still be inspired to create new art!

  6. This was the first Click Photo School workshop where I participated and I was so happy I did that. I signed up because I wanted to start building a strong portfolio of my personal work. Natalie’s tutorial videos and PDFs were excellent and covered a lot of material which I hope to review and practice afterwards. Her video critique to my assignments was so valuable – extremely helpful in terms of both technical and creative elements. I also felt she sincerely cared and put in the time in connecting and guiding all of us in the class and I felt very comfortable asking her all sorts of questions. The two week duration was perfect for me in terms of making sure I allocated enough time to focus on the course. I highly recommend this course!

  7. I loved this class. This is the workshop that I needed to boost my creativity and pick up the camera again. As a full participation student, Natalie’s critiques were insightful and super helpful. The PDFs are filled with so many great ideas to boost your creativity. I highly recommend this workshop.

  8. I just finished up this class. The two weeks flew by! It was just what I needed to get my creative juices flowing. Natalie’s PDFs are filled with gorgeous images and so many great ideas to inspire being creative. I also enjoyed her videos. She is very clear and responsive and active in the class on a daily basis. Her video critiques were some of the most thorough I have ever seen. If you are looking for a quick but content filled two weeks to get your creativity recharged I highly recommend the class!

    1. H Wendy! I’m so sorry I didn’t see this sooner! Most of the example images in the PDF are images of my young boys, but the concepts we go over can really be applied to any type of shooting. I’d love to have you join us in the next run!

    1. Hi Carol! I’m so sorry I didn’t see this sooner! I definitely shoot with my young boys most of the time, but the concepts we learn about can be applied to any type of shooting! I’d love to have you join us in the next run!

    1. Hi there! Just a camera, and that’s it! It would be helpful if you had some basic photography knowledge like how to shoot in manual, but I do include a photography glossary for those who may not being totally familiar with the basics. There is as small section on editing where I use a combination of Lightroom and Photoshop. If you don’t have those programs, Adobe usually does free trials, so you could look into that. Let me know if you have any other questions!

  9. Hey there! First, thank you for offering this class, I’m intrigued! One quick question, is there a set time for the daily Q&A in the full participation? I want to do that one but would need understand this one part better.

    Appreciate it!


    1. Hi! Thanks for your interest! No set times! Any questions you have during the two weeks, you just post them when you can in the class forum and I will pop in several times a day to answer questions, critique assignments etc. The only thing that may be scheduled at a certain time will be a welcome zoom call if enough people want to do that. But that would be totally optional. Hope you can join us! ❤️
