The course was great. Have done a few shoots since the course with some good results ( I Think. LOL). I’m ready to hit the ground running now. Thanks so much for all your help. The course was well worth it that’s for sure.
Focus 10 runs fantastic, informative and always fun courses and tours. I have done 4 of them now - Blue Mountains, Southern Highlands, 3801 Steam train and the most recent to Jervis Bay. Always a laugh and with excellent like minded, fellow photographers!
Thanks again for your work at our conference. We were all very pleased.
Got back to the office yesterday and we received via Dropbox all the amazing photographs you took. You captured everthing- the keynote speakers, the sailing events, the party. We will definitely be using you again when we are next in Australia
It was great to catch up with you this afternoon. I feel that doing your course was extremely beneficial and since then, using your tips, my confidence and ability with my camera has increase exponentially. Thank you so much for the information on the Indian photo processing lab. I hope that I'm able to get good at Photoshop and Lightroom but it's good to have them there as a back up just in case.
We have worked with Andrew for 19 years now and he is unfailingly reliable and always goes out of his way to help out our business. He have given us training in property photography and is always giving free advice on how we can further improve.
Thanks for the feedback and I am loving your photos. We look forward to catching up again when you are next in Byron Bay
Thanks, Andrew for a great two days in and around Sydney. I'm much more confident in using the camera. Very much appreciated...
"Great beginners photo course Andrew. Thanks very much for helping me find my passion for photography again. I received lots of one and one attention. Cool seagull shoot with chips from Pier 4 and great you knew most of the stall holders in the Rocks market. I loved this course and learnt so much. I will be telling all my friends"
