Alex Alario
Alexander Slyadnev's photography course is my favorite course ever :) The program teaches you to think and to love your job. Alexander is a strategist. I like his positively realistic approach. I am excited to learn from professionals in different areas of photography. Learn, train new skills and enjoy your results — what can be better?
Mary Gamme
Fascinating school with high-demanding material and a real-world teaching system. The structure and syllabus facilitate the learning process, which captivates from the very first video lesson. Alexander makes your mind work hard, but also you can use this course as a sports program because you need to walk a lot to take a nice photo at sunset/daw /blue hour! I am happy about choosing this school!
Alex Chernova
I am a junior photographer, working for 2,5 years. All this time I`ve been on the lookout for my own style, trying different genres and just practicing. When I realized that photography is not my profession, it is my lifestyle, I started looking for a photography school. And I found the amazing course by Alexander Slyadnev. This man captivated me from the very first second with his solar energy of Life and Creativity. I started watching lessons and webinars, doing homework and analyzing photos, and understanding my own camera. I am in bright delight from the wise combination of knowledge and practice. Alexander is an incredible photographer and a master of his craft, he explains everything so expressively and clearly that it is impossible not to fall in love and drown in the creative flow. I want to say: “Thank you”. Thank you, Alexander, and all your teachers, advisors, and students. You create real art in this vast world.
Valery Kobets
I have been studying photography online for about 3 months, so I can give a review based on my own experience. Alexander Slyadnev's course is a place where learning is joyful: each topic is divided into subtopics, and training videos do not last long, which allows you not to lose concentration. It's easier to tune into learning, even after a hard day's work. Homework is checked twice a week, so it's easy to adjust to your schedule. All video lessons are conducted by Alexander himself, and he knows how to present the material perfectly: his speech is alive and not monotonous, and his knowledge is backed up by tremendous experience. During the training, not only theory is given, but also step-to-step instructions and guides. Based on the foregoing, we can conclude that the training takes place in a convenient format and captivates from the first lessons.

I never believed in online learning, and I was very skeptical about this business, but I was surprised when I really saw the result! When you look forward to moving from task to task, when you see how you grow professionally and it's so exciting! Thanks.
Tanya Rosca
Alexander Slyadnev's photography course is the best decision I could make this year. The entire program is very well structured and understandable. With each new lesson, it gets more and more engaging! I am fully satisfied!!! I feel like the first astronaut in space ever!!!
Dmitry Rodionov
I have been doing photography since I was a child — with a film photography. Then I got a SLR digital camera. But it wasn`t as simple as I thought. No matter how hard I tried, I did not get photographs that would please me. I just left photography for several years, but the inner desire took its toll. I started watching YouTube tutorials. And then I came across a video by Alexander Slyadnev. I`ve watched all his lessons! And after a couple of days, I started studying at Alexander's online course. This is not just training: it is a storehouse of knowledge. All knowledge in the art of photography is given consistently using a simple language. I am very glad that I chose Alexander Slyadnev. I am still in progress with my education. But I want to thank Alexander for not only creating a program but putting all his knowledge and soul into it!!!
Alena Bykava
I studied with another photographer before, so I can say that Alexander is certainly an incredible teacher. He can clearly express his thoughts, and he has really unique experience as for food photographer. The course is well thought out, throughout the training, there is support both from the course staff and from Alexander himself. Recommend it!
Before Alexander Slyadnev's course, I only barely understood what to do in order to learn food photography. Now I have a well-defined plan. I want to dig deeper. It was very important and useful for me to watch, study, and try the whole process of creating food photography— building a composition, setting the lighting, flash, reflectors, camera, etc. It's nice to know that I'm on the right track, the only thing left is to study and practice a lot.
Thanks to Alexander for that relaxed atmosphere he creates. He put everything in my head in its place. Alex, you are cool! Even if we discard your profession and everything connected with it, you are cool :) I love relaxed people with a slightly daring sense of humor :)
Galina Vityuk
These photos and Alexander Slyadnev's course are definitely my jackpot in studying photography. This course is not just about how food photography is created. Alex shows you: how to create a story/emotions in a frame, he tells about composition and compositional grids, and lighting rules, and also shares tricks and special effects that he uses himself. This information and knowledge are necessary and important, but the experience gained is unique. After the program, I feel more confident in my skills and I can actually do more than I think. The next day, I even plucked up the courage and asked for an assistant role to work with a real shoot in a restaurant with another photographer (and we are almost strangers). Got it!
I love studying with Alexander because there is no chaos on the set, no chaos in the program: everything is logical, everything is natural, everything is thought out in the frame to the last detail, and everything is fine! And he is unbridled and dedicated to inspiration and creativity! This is just an avalanche of creativity, which is transmitted from Alex to everyone around and it is not quickly treated.
Anastasia
Alex makes you feel like one his course gives you more than years of learning with all the books and videos and ignites you for new challenges. Alex, thank you for your knowledge: simple, easy, fun, and useful. I got my inspiration for the year ahead. Finally, I'll start shooting purely for my heart and soul.
