David Lund | Professional Photographer

Canon 5D mkIV

David was already a successful designer when he opted for a career change and set out to turn his passion for photography into a business. Once he'd invested in the studio equipment he needed, David boosted his photography knowledge and skill using our online photography classes. His passion, dedication and commitment have made him an extremely successful professional photographer with a host of blue-chip clients in his portfolio.

The team and I feel extremely proud of David's success, and of the small part we played in helping him achieve it.

“I learned a great deal about lighting from Karl Taylor when I first started out. His classes were the key for me. He helped me understand how to control light to achieve the image you want.”
