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.
This has to be one of the best value and most comprehensive beginners photography courses. A huge amount of content, outside shooting with 10 workshops, 2 night sessions and an additional 4 hour workshop of our choice. I went from zero to hero in my understanding the fundamentals of photography. Keep up the good work!
I have known Andrew for 25 years now and he is always willing the go that extra mile and is a talented photographer. We share a common love for India and travel in general. Over the years Andrew has been the judge for the Australian newspapers regular travel competitions and we love his enthusiasm and commitment.
I cannot thank you enough for spending your Sunday with Hannah giving her excellent photography training. It was a hot day and you had to work hard.
We loved the photos and she learnt a lot, there were smiles all round.
Focus 10 was out main photographer at all our corporate functions at Tyco when I was on Australia. We have recently purchased the
96o page Complete Professional Photography Course that Andrew co-authored with Code Lime Photography. Its a brilliant resource manual on everything photographic and our company is finding it useful.
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 for the feedback and I am loving your photos. We look forward to catching up again when you are next in Byron Bay
I was Andrew's wedding assistant for quite a few years and he was always generous with his time and expertise. So thank you! It seems a lifetime ago we shot that wedding at Gunners Barracks in this nasty Covid 19 era.
