How to Make Money as a Photographer during Covid 19 Pandemic
When the world came crashing to a halt in early 2020, the event photography industry fell into a void. The pandemic put a stop to hundreds of thousands of gatherings, events, and parties, as the UK was instructed to stay at home, and event photographers were left without subject matter. With no events, many photographers suddenly found themselves without any means of earning a living.

My experience with ICS has been alright for the most part. The relevancy of the course subjects were good and the way in which the tutor explained everything was great. However, I would say it was a good start and well prepared for a beginner with 0 experience with any of these tools. I am happy with the results and progress I've made .

The course was great value for money as I learnt a lot in a small space of time, and am now ready to pursue a career as a designer. The tutor was experienced and attentive. I was impressed at how our teacher managed to fit in all the relevant teachings in such a small space of time. He cared about getting the best out of us, and was very encouraging.

I really enjoyed the photography and editing course. The only thing that was hard was not being able to get together with everyone to do the practical topics but I really enjoyed doing the homework and being able to get creative with it. You were also encouraged to focus on the genre of photography you enjoyed so this made the course a lot easier and fun

Great course, very creative, amazing tutor.
Katie D.
The course was intense, but I learned a huge amount and hats-off to Jesse James for his SUPERB tutoring. He could always answer any question put to him very clearly, and his industry experience shows. I have been on other courses where people just seemed to be reading a book out aloud, but Jesse is not one of those people. He is also humourous, and very patient indeed. One person on the course kept asking endless questions, to such an extent that it was quite frustrating for me and perhaps for others, but Jesse dealt with this very well.
