Professional Photography Program: what do users think?
Jaime Larsen: I have not been a student at Langara (yet) however, I have had an amazing experience with the faculty and students in the Arts/Photography department that I would like to share. My wedding was coming up in 3 weeks, and my photographer (who is a pro, but also a family member) bailed on us. She wasn't able to travel to the wedding. We researched the top photography schools in Vancouver area and Langara is number one. We couldn't afford a typical $3000-$5000 wedding package, and we thought it would be a great opportunity for an eager student to get some experience. Surprisingly enough, the faculty at Langara responded right away, first of all to apologize on behalf of photographers everywhere! They agreed that it would be a great opportunity for the students. We received numerous emails from students, in a very professional manor, asking to take on the job. We decided to go with the lovely Laura Mohr of Belleza Pura Photography and SHE DID SUCH A FANTASTIC JOB!!! I can certainly tell that they are doing a great job of teaching new photographers, not just about the art, but the ins and outs of the business too. She also spoke very highly of the photography program at Langara. We are SO appreciative of the philosophy and ethics at this school. THANK YOU!

Vancouver Photo Workshops: what do users think?
Todd Mercer: Save your money and spend it in a worthwhile online course instead because this is not one of those. I was living in Vancouver at the time and wanted to help support a local business. I took the photoshop for photographers course a couple of years ago and found it incredibly disjointed, jumbled and unprofessional. The instructor made so many mistakes...and I do mean so many (this is a pre-recorded course) through each and every tutorial, often excusing it as a better way for you to learn by learning from his mistakes. Here's a better way to learn, VPW..practice and edit your tutorials in a more streamlined and professional fashion. Listening and watching to you're instructors fumble through their lessons is confusing and aggravating. There was also zero input on any projects completed by the instructor or any one else at VPW.My workplace re-imbursed me for the cost of the course itself but I needed some type of receipt to prove I had taken the course and completed it. Multiple emails over the course of a couple of months received no responses until I worded my final inquiry more critically...only then did I finally get a proper response. (refer to review below concerning another persons experience with communicating with these people).Like I said save your money, there are plenty of online courses that offer far superior instruction ( even youtube tutorials are far better). Don't waste your hard earned money and time with this hackneyed attempt at online tutorials. I'm suspicious of anyone reviewing this course positively, either they are complete beginners with no real expectations or they are somehow connected.
mce bro: I'm not entirely sure what's going on with this place, but I have been trying for about 2 months now to get a hold of them regarding information about one of their courses. I have messaged them on their website using their contact form, I have called them a couple of times and left messages, but they do not answer at all to emails and no one ever picks up the phone. It goes to a voicemail saying that they are closed until January 2nd, but it's now January 27th and nothing. I'm assuming they have closed down because they don't seem interested at all in responding to customers.
Sarah Frank: I took a couple courses last year, enjoyed them immensely. Instructors were professional and thorough. Courses were affordable. Now that winter is here I'll be looking to continue my studies with VPW. My photography has noticeably improved. Thanks VPW, see you soon
Lena Alsayegh: I hate to do this but they were completely inflexible and stuck to their guns so I need to call them out.I registered for the Intermediate Digital Photography course last year, eager to follow up on the Beginner one I'd just completed at Langara, while saving a bit of money. Eager is key, because only after I hastily registered (the course was starting within a few days and I didn't want it to fill up) did I notice the course outline, which was buried in one of the drop-down menus, and saw that there would be a lot of model work, which I had no interest in. So, I called them, less than 30 minutes after registering, and explained myself, but they refused to give me a full refund. Now, the remaining amount was only $30 - something about the company they go through for visa payments - but I'd just donated $30 for half an hour of nothing, and they were completely unwilling to budge and help me out.Did they do anything wrong? No, they followed their policy, but there are always exceptions to rules, and good customer service seeks to understand the big picture, and make clients happy. In this regard, they failed miserably. Instead, they seemed to prioritize making money, and for that reason, they've lost a client for life. I've not booked with them again since, and I never will. (And before anyone says they need to make money too, or it's an out of pocket loss - they seem perfectly fine giving wholesale-style early bird and daytime discounts, I'm sure they could have figured something out.)Also, I've heard (and just looking at their course outlines by comparison) that they're nowhere near as thorough, or therefore educational, as Langara. Yes, Langara is more expensive, but not by much. You get what you pay for, and it's fantastic instruction.I hate to be mean, but I wish VPW would have made a better impression on me, instead they chose to prioritize themselves over their client, and so lost out on both counts.

Northwest Culinary Academy Of Vancouver: what do users think?
Thomas Matthey: First time participating in a course at the Northwest Culinary. The best course I have done in years.
Sara D: We did the Sushi class with Chef Tarek, it was a lot of fun and we all felt it was great value for money. They even gave us all goodie bags at the end with Poke Bowl ingredients. Will definitely come back in future!
Amee Barber: We went to the one night wonder event for pad Thai. It was so much fun and great tips you’d never figure out on your own. Five stars for sure and I’ll be back!
V B: Highly recommend this place. My partner and I started with the lasagna class, then the risotto class and we just signed up for the bread making series.Couldn’t recommend this place more !!
Stella Ammendolia: The course exceeded my expectations. The teachers wereprofessional, well informed and had a down to earth wayof explaining the lesson. I would recommend this courseto all levels of cooks.The proof is in the pudding...as soon as I arrived home, (I flew infrom Ontario), I went to my garage and fished out my very largecutting board. It now has a place on my counter.Also, for the first time ever, I am using my pastry scraper.Thank you for a memorable course.
Kristian Kletke: Had a great experience with Fundamentals 1. The instructors were friendly and knowledgeable, not teaching you to just read a recipe, but to understand it, and the facility was clean and well prepped. Nice wine pairings too!
Mark Glimm: Just finished a one night lasagna class here, and it was just great. The instructors are knowledgeable, friendly and funny. The facility has I think 8 big gas ranges, with lots of other stuff, and there's a two table dining/lecture area with big screens to see the tutorials. Loved it. Thanks Tony and Jonathan!
Siavash E: .Highest ratio of instructors to studentsHighest ratio of cooking stations to studentsHighest spenders on ingredients and equipmentsNorthwest is not a school, its a passion project. This state of the art food laboratory is run by a team of chefs who are all owners - better described as family rather than co-workers. They'll take you in as one of their own, equip you with the most up-to-date culinary skills and knowledge, and give you unlimited support even after graduation. They are, however, selective in their admission process. You will need a lot of enthusiasm and a bit of luck. I wish you both!
Noya Madadi: I had an incredible experience taking the Enthusiast Level 1 course. Every day was packed with valuable information that are very relevant to everyday cooking including ingredient quality selection & all the reasons behind it. They teach you how to use your senses so you’re not reliant on a recipe or if you are looking to a recipe for inspiration, how to easily adjust things based on your touch or what you have available in your pantry. Every dish was delicious & very repeatable. Tony, our main instructor was very informative as well as the other chefs & instructors. I am already dying to take the next Level 2 course. My partner was so impressed with all the knowledge & relevant information I brought back home. Thank you so much for creating such a fun program. Cooking has never been so fun & stress-free. I highly recommend this course.
Alexandro Rubio: Great place to learn, only took the Basics 1 & 2 courses so far, since I cook for fun, but this place has made me think twice about my career choices, maybe I should have become a Chef! Instructor chefs are polite and knowledgeable, feels like you are cooking with friends and learning is nice and easy.
Janine Kreil: Could not recommend North West Culinary school enough! No matter your skill level, I can guarantee you will learn here from these wonderful people. I have taken 2 enthusiast classes now and I plan to take a whole lot more in the future!
J V: Took the 2 week boot camp as a proficient home cook and left with a new level of understanding for techniques and ingredients that I had never used before. The chefs were all great teachers and always there for questions and to help you succeed. The pace of the program gradually increased as we became more proficient and comfortable in our environment. The 2 weeks went by like a blur but with lots of practice after, I'm sure the techniques will slowly become second nature. Great way for home cooks to level up their game!
Banny Sohal: I would recommend the basic 1 course to everyone. The chefs are thoughtful and engaging and will teach you something no matter you’re level of cooking. The facilities are top notch. Overall great experience. Will definitely try some more courses!
Dayane L.: Amazing experience! My bf got us a couple cooking class this week - Phad Thai food! It so much fun and we learn how to make our favourite dish! The chef and his team were very friendly, knowledgeable and welcoming! Their kitchen is unreal! Very clean and well equipped. We’ll definitely go back soon!😍 highly recommend them! ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Andrew: I took the Basics I: Flagship Fundamentals Course just recently to improve on my home cooking skills and to learn its discipline. I've been cooking by following recipes but this course has certainly opened up my eyes with a fresh look, i.e., by putting on a new "Reading Lens". I've also learned the art of flow in the kitchen with Mise en Place. Each Chef instructor brought to the classes their insights, techniques, personal experiences, and how to "Think like a Chef." There were times during the classes I have those light-bulb moments at either during the class or at the kitchen station. Yesterday was my birthday, and I wanted to share what I've learned. I couldn't believe that I was able to cook 10 dishes - first time ever - out from the four day class lessons for a family meal. And the verdict from family - "...every dish was delicious... and that it was a melody of food." I was inspired and I can't wait to begin with the Culinary Basics II: Next level of courage + creativity. Thank you Chefs, and thank you NWCA...
Anthony G.: Thank you for an inspiring lesson! Learned and ate a lot :p
Jim Grant: Really great Basics course with an opportunity to make and learn from meals we made and actually learn a lot of the ‘why’s’ of what you’re doing, rather than just following a recipe. Really enjoyed a lot of the tricks and discussions around things like different salts, and what’s so good about olive oil.
Xiao Yu: Took the fundamentals 101 in-person class here, had a great time. Atmosphere was very relaxed and inviting. Chef and staff were very helpful and provided a comfortable space for all the students to work in. Great kitchen to work in and quality products. I have been cooking at home for some time but I think any level can benefit from this course. Look forward to taking more courses in the future.
Sonya Szoczei: Great classes! Covid distance friendly
A. Owens: The 2-Week Plant Based Bootcamp was excellent! Everyone was so friendly, knowledgeable + most importantly, approachable. The class was taught in a cohesive + professional manner, + yet it was still fun + lighthearted. I definitely recommend anyone who is considered taking a class and / or course here to do so.
Chanel Warshafsky: I came to Northwest Culinary Academy as a home cook, looking to advance my skills and make a career change. Northwest exceeded my expectations in every way possible and without a doubt, participating in the professional culinary and pastry program this past year, was the best year of my life.The instructors all made an incredibly positive impact and I am thankful for the newfound confidence I have gained as a result, both in cooking at home, and now working in the field.The entire team at Northwest is extremely supportive and encouraging, they care deeply about every student's journey, interests and are truly dedicated to help students navigate their first steps when entering into the field and continued mentorship throughout one's career.The curriculum and environment is one of a kind, you will truly have the opportunity to dive into your learning, hone your skills and discover a deeper appreciation for your love of cooking, and forever be inspired to follow your dreams!

Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts: what do users think?
Valerie Farnsworth: We did a fun and insightful cooking class of Japanese cuisine.Wonderful teacher and student helpers , great recipes that I WILL repeat at home
jen h: I have been fortunate enough to have two events held here for clients. This is a very unique and great team building exercise as one of the events they offer is an iron chef challenge. The basis of this activity is that you are put into teams and tasked with the difficult and creative job of cooking a appetizer and entrée using a secret ingredient that has to be incorporated in both dishes. They hosted our clients professionally and with care which was much appreciated. The experience can come in at a little bit high of a price however, it has been a very successful event and our clients seemed to love it (which is the main goal!). You have to cook for one hour and have access to the kitchen and ingredients and can talk with some of the students that are there as well. It feels very high pressure and depending how you cook or eat it could be either very creative or a little bit overwhelming but it’s all in good fun. After that, the head chef tries out all the dishes and scores everyone. Don’t fret, you do not have to only eat your concoctions after the cooking challenge. You are then presented with a three course meal done by the students. One thing I do wish they offered was perhaps a Feedback card (I understand this is difficult for a client event but could be coordinated to the organizer). The dishes we got for good, the portions were a bit small and some of the dishes were a bit over salted in my opinion but overall it was a great meal and event. There is limited parking and just have to register your car with the business beforehand, otherwise be prepared to get towed.
Joseph Harasymko: Brilliant school. Very welcoming and knowledgeable about all aspects of the culinary arts.
Marc Bellera: They have a pleasant space with good views. The pastries and snacks are really good. The reason for the low punctuation is unfortunately due to the poor quality of the coffee and the lack of preparation as baristas and fortiori in a city where the competition of coffee shops and their quality is very high. Unfortunately, bad coffee definitely ruins a good meal.
Cindi Jones: We were there for a group event and did an Iron Chef challenge. It was a great experience so much fun. And, the we enjoyed a lovely meal prepared for us by the chef. Great team building event!
G I: Used to stop by every time to buy their delicious danish, croissants etc. Lately the are smaller than they use to be. They are almost half of what they used to be. When i asked to talk to the new baker , i was told the size it is the same.We are regulars and we know what size the pastries were.Anyways, time to look for another bakery.
J F: Amazing. Love this place. Best bakery, great customer service, and relaxing environment.
William Johnson: Good classes, but absolutely terrible customer service and student communication.
Martin Merrigold: Always interesting when a place transfers to new ownership. Prices up, quality is somewhat the same but evm that has taken a hit. Too bad it was a bit of a gem. Long term staff are still great!
Richard Felske: Blue Hat Bistro is great for coffee and pastries with a view of the marina and seawall at the entrance to Granville Island.
Asif Asad Jan: It was a great visiting there.
By my reckoning: I’m an international student who graduated from here, this place was my safe space tbh, at first when I was trying to find Culinary school this is the one who always got the good reviews which I don’t know why, now I know!!! Everything here is so blessing, all chef instructors and my friends are amazing. I don’t wanna say this but I don’t wanna graduate and still stay in this school PS. As the international student, it’s hard at first to adjust but when you do you will love it!!!
Me Mehl: Nice place to find something tasty and a good cup of coffee served however you like it.
Brooklyn PA: We ordered Easter dinner. They accommodated us as a high risk family. They accommodated curbside and were so friendly via email and phone.Team was amazing 👏 Food was great.
Kawa Rammo: Amazing aria
Felicity Shaw: My partner and I took the laminated dough class on Saturday. The class was taught by an incredibly passionate and talented chef / instructor named Christian who's enthusiasm for pastry was infectious. We cannot recommend this place enough. We will definitely be back for more classes
MANBIR RANDHAWA: If anyone out there wants to be a chef, baker or anything in the field of food cooking please do yourself a good favour and invest your money in this school.Since 1997, the school has graduated many wonderful talented students who not only learned from the high quality teachers but also learn to survive in the competitive hospitality field.The school is not just a school but also a full fledged restaurant and cafe overlooking the ships,yachts and boats parked from its big glass window. What a view and so I didn’t miss a chance to grab a coffee with yummy in house baked goodies.Lets talk about the school itself. Massive kitchens/classrooms, small size classrooms , student study room with apple macbook desktops and full fledge change rooms are just some of the features. Very spacious and clean especially during covid time. All precautions and safety measurements are taken before you go further from reception. Friendly staff and career advisors are very knowledgeable and helpful. Check in with “seane “ the admission guy for all ur program related queries.
H: Do not try and get help through their website, they won’t get back to you. Pre covid.
Mali DS: Very cool spot, with great views and lots of space. I love how organized and clean everything looked like.They have a good choice of desserts and bread.I only had a coffee, bit I will definitely come back.
Bailey: Definitely one of my fave spots for lunch in the area. Fresh food & ingredients, great prices and wonderful staff.
Purple Chainz: Was a pleasant experience

Suzanne Rushton Photography: what do users think?
Yunue Carrasco: This site is taking me to fraud pages over and over, not sure if the school is the one doing the fraud or it's just the site that is incorrect, but beware...
Jenna Herbut: Suzanne is a gifted photographer who can capture the magic of any space. It was a joy working with her and I couldn’t be more happy with the photos she took of Conscious Lab. I highly recommend hiring Suzanne for your next shoot 🙌
Erin Watts: Our experience with Suzanne was so fun and our photos gorgeous! She was careful to capture everything we had discussed in our pre-meeting, and best of all allowed me to surprise her with a request to snap some family photos, despite having been hired to capture our business product. I would highly recommend her!
Rae J: I love working with Suzanne! She is easy to talk to, makes you feel comfortable behind the camera, and truly has an eye for photography. It has been a great experience to pick her brain and absorb her wisdom regarding all things photography, business and adventuring around Vancouver and beyond! I fully recommend her services ☺️
Irene Strong: I have had the pleasure of working with Suzanne on multiple occasions. I have also been able to trust her with my most important business projects and people. Each and every time she has presented the "wow" factor in her products and in how she conducts her services. She is a professional artist who is also fun and engaging as she captures beautiful photographs in such a way that the events, the people and the stories come to life.
Nic D: Great photographer!
Rachel Fung: Suzanne is an incredible photographer. Her positive attitude is contagious whenever she's around and always transfers to the subject of her photos. Her work and editing capabilities never cease to amaze us, I happily recommend her to everyone I know. She has an incredible work ethic and professionalism about her which are all factors as to why she is the go to photographer for our company.
Amber Johnson: Positive:Quality,ValueSuzanne is super accommodating and she is so easy to work with! I like to get projects shot and up on my website as quickly as possible and she delivered well-edited quality shots within a short period of time.

I couldn't be happier with the end results. I highly recommend Suzanne for any gig requiring innovative thought .
monica cleland: Suzanne nailed it!! She photographed my wellness clinic. I'm so impressed and happy with these photos, amazing!!! Suzanne was professional, efficient, creative. Feeling very grateful, thank you.
Jorge Suarez: Suzanne is great, with just a few seconds with her you can feel comfortable with yourself in front of the camera and she'll definitively find your best angle. Her warmth and charm allows you to let yourself go and try shots you are not really used to pose for. The outcomes couldn't be better, I just spend a couple of minutes during a recent event and my head shots came out really great. Highly Recommended!
DeltaThetaPi SigmaXi: Professional!

Patsy Kay Kolesar: Suzanne took my head shots and has also taken lifestyle shots for my jewelry brand. I just love the images she captured from both of these shoots. When taking my head shots she made me feel comfortable and offered me just the right amount of direction. The lifestyle shots she took for my jewelry brand have been so valuable to my business. I have been able to use them on my website and my branding materials. The images captured the feel of my brand perfectly and my jewelry looks great in them. She was also very professional, and super fun to work with.
