You don’t feel fully confident with your Leica Q
You often just point and shoot without planning.
Your best shots tend to be through trial and error.
“The Leica Q is basically 100 years of photographic genius applied into one small camera. It’s a great camera – I can just turn it on and take a picture of anything, and it just works and makes great photos. This Masterclass Video Course will get you familiar with the Leica Q and make you always want to carry a camera.”

“Thank you for your inspiration."
“Thorsten, this is my first Leica in my life and I’m 53 years old. I know this is a very special camera and I am extremely thankful for your generosity in helping me and others like me.”
“I think you have saved me from going totally desperate with my new Leica (I have upgraded from my Canon 5DMKII to a Leica and the change is huge!).”
“I’m a lot more confident to take and show my photos now. You should be proud that you have obviously brought knowledge and confidence to so many people.”
“I feel that I’ve grown a lot as a photographer, not only through what you taught us, but also by just observing how you move and interact with subjects on the street. And your ‘All you need is love’ approach to photography is the best advice I’ve ever received as a photographer.”
