    1. Frank Ackermann

      Hello Mr Roskothen,

      Thank you once again for "waking me up" from automatic mode with your photo course for beginners. Aperture, ISO, exposure time & co. have lost their horror thanks to the individual one-to-one training. Now it's time to try things out.

      Best regards
      Frank Ackermann

    2. Michael Arts

      If you want to get to know photography and your camera, this is the right place for you!

      The theory is conveyed in an understandable way and immediately put into practice.
      The automatic function on the camera becomes less important and the images gain in quality.
      I really enjoyed the course!

      M. Arts

    3. Manfred Probst

      Peter Roskothen knows how to tap into personal potential in order to recognise new dimensions of photography.

    4. Raoph Kossmann

      As a "newcomer" to a long neglected hobby, two mornings of photography lessons with Mr Roskothen were a complete success for me. Why?

      Mr Roskothen did not reel off an abstractly prepared programme. Instead, in an open and relaxed atmosphere, we first considered what I was (not yet) able to do and what I would like to learn as part of the photography course, based on some of the pictures I had brought with me. On this basis, Mr Roskothen brought out "buried knowledge" in me and also taught me new things. He was always open to questions, which he answered comprehensively.

      It was also particularly positive that the training did not stop at imparting theoretical knowledge, but was followed by practical training both indoors and outdoors - with numerous worthwhile motifs in the immediate vicinity - and I also found it very helpful that the training took place with the cameras I actually use and that I received a lot of advice on how to use my cameras in particular.

      Ultimately, the photography course not only taught me what I had booked it for, but Mr Roskothen also gave me ideas for future photographic work that I wouldn't have come up with on my own.

    5. Christine Weiss

      Mr Roskothen,
      Many thanks for the very informative course, which has shed light on the extensive possibilities with my camera.
      Very friendly and easy to understand.
      The practical exercises made everything even better.
      I will definitely come to the advanced course.

    6. Anja Pohlig

      Mr Roskothen explained my questions very well and imparted technical knowledge. As part of a very pleasant conversation, I received a lot of interesting and practical information and learnt more about what else my camera can do.

    7. Richard Boekhoff

      Good morning Mr Roskothen, thank you very much for the pleasant 2 days with you.
      In addition to the clear explanation of the technical basics, I particularly enjoyed the practical realisation the next day. Now I am much more motivated to go on tour with my camera, to deepen the knowledge I have learnt and to implement a new approach to selecting motifs.

      Many thanks for this

    8. Georg Macht

      Hello Mr Roskothen,

      The photo course with you was a complete success for us.

      With your excellent explanation of photographic terms and tips, you helped us a lot to understand and apply the various camera settings.

      With your friendly and open-minded manner, you have further increased our enjoyment of photography.

      We can only rate and recommend you as a "photo teacher".

      Despite the long journey from Franconia, this course was a great benefit for us
