"I just wanted to say that I really loved this weekend course and learnt a great deal. I appreciate you both sharing your photography knowledge and patience with us. Serena and Andrew were great instructors and injected lots of fun but at the same time kept the course at a great pace and ensured we all got something valuable out of it. I am really looking forward to the Wildflowers and Wilderness weekend in September!"
I want to thank you very much for the course a last Saturday. It was very easy to learn through this sort of experience. The models were gorgeous! I will be confident enough to do a small wedding and the course manual is incredibly detailed. Thanks.
Thanks for the feedback and I am loving your photos. We look forward to catching up again when you are next in Byron Bay
Great job shooting the Bronte Flight Centre! Looks like they our client is bailing out at the right time .. retail strips are not going to be hot sellers in the near future. Are you able to send me hi-res of just the external whole building shots please? Thanks
Hi Andrew... Thanks for a fantastic day today. I'm keen to do the SLR 2 and night photography, please let me know dates. Thanks again!
Andrew has been our corporate photographer for 8 years shooting all our events, functions and portraits. Focus 10 is reputable, flexible and innovative!
Andrew did a great job with his aerial photography of our property in Bathurst and saved us a lot of money with the inspection of our powerline insulators
