Philip Erskine
Business Development Manager at Grandville Hotel Waterford
"Bara was a star to work with from day one. We were a group of people with next to no knowledge about photography. Even when asked what we wanted to learn, we didn’t even know ourselves! Through the theory she explained some things to consider when we need to take a picture from the planning stage through to publishing. Bara showed us how we can easily use the tools at our disposal to take professional-looking photographs. Connecting the theory with a practical approach was the perfect way for us to learn.''
Mary McGuinness
Founder of Mary's Digital Market
"I am providing this testimonial in response to my time spent with Bara Alich during my Photography Skills for your Business Course at the Marina Hotel back in September of this year, 2023. I myself am a Digital Marketer, and my business, "Mary's Digital Market," is a Digital Marketing service in Waterford, specializing in creating websites for small to medium-sized businesses, while also generating social media content for your business. In general, I provide all marketing assistance that your business requires—online and offline. I signed up for this course to gain basic photography skills with the mindset that I can progress, with the help of Bara, to a more advanced level of photography in the future. Personally, I feel the need to be proficient at photography to better assist my clients and reduce my reliance on generic material when creating reels/posts, etc. I found this course to be both educational and enjoyable, serving as a real kickstart into the world of photography. Bara is an excellent tutor, and the course is very easy to follow, offering lots of hints and steps to improve your photos in general. I also met like-minded business people, eager to learn just like me, and the atmosphere is both friendly and informal, yet still very professional. I would recommend this course, and I do intend to sign up next year for the more advanced DSLR Course. Bara is very welcoming and patient in her approach, and I would recommend her tuition to anyone looking to improve or indeed begin their photography journey. Thank you, Bara!''

Highly recommended for any business owner looking to bring their photography skills to the next level, attract more customers, and boost sales. Well done.''
Caroline O Toole
Founder of Hip Happy Clothes
"I have a children's clothing business that sells online and need to take product and lifestyle photos. I snapped up a place on this course as I needed expert advice in how to best use my camera, phone and lighting to achieve better visuals. This course covered design principles and practices that I can now use to critique my photos and hopefully product better photos. I particularly enjoyed the demonstration of how to use a phone to achieve great results and how to plan a product photo space. I would recommend this course to anyone who needs to take photos as part of their business.''
Martina Avery
Founder of Inside Out Wellness
"My name is Martina from Inside Out Wellness. I am a yoga teacher and nutritional therapist. I took Bara’s course in September and enjoyed every minute of it. It was very detailed and suitable for everyone including absolute beginners in photography. I learnt how to take photos that represent my business and what I have to offer, that will stand out in social media. For me this will help personalise my offerings and show my authenticity through the photos that I take. I feel I know so much more about how to take a good photo and how to capture exactly what I want from it. The course was set at a nice pace and we also got a chance to get to know other businesses which was very interesting. I met some really wonderful people that like me were beginners and needed to learn more about taking good photos that looked professional for their businesses. I would highly recommend Bara’s course. She puts a lot of work into personalising the course for your business needs.''
Niall Lonergan
CEO/Founder at Fyrefli
"I was lucky enough to sign up for Bara’s training class in photography. She took a bunch of us under her wing and by the end of the third week, we all left with great skills in photography after completing the Photography Skills for your Business course. She taught us so much and I will be forever grateful. Her knowledge of photography is second to none and I will be hiring Bara in the future both for training and photography. I cannot recommend Bara enough.''
