Course Testimonial:

"With very detailed and clear explanations as to how, what, why, where and when different weather phenomenons occur, Tom Watkinson’s course provides me as a serious photographer with everything I need to understand and predict inversions, mist, fog, rainbows, sunsets and sunrises and more. Tom provides details on which weather apps to use and advice on what to look for when using them. I have been looking for a course like this for quite some time as it gathers all of the information you need in one place so there’s no need to go hunting all over YouTube and the web gathering pieces here and there. At 40% off the list price during April, I jumped at it and have not been disappointed. With unlimited access to the material I will definitely be reviewing the modules as there’s so much information it’s a lot to absorb in one sitting even if it is a short course. Thankfully the modules are bite-sized so you can jump in and out to quickly get to the information you need. I would recommend watching it all the way through for the first time and then reviewing the modules at a slower pace as and when you need them. Highly recommended

All the best,
