Our Blue Mountains Photography course have justifiably earned its reputation as one of our leading photographic course destinations. This 'all rounder' course offers a diverse range of photography subjects - beautiful landscapes, plunging waterfalls, abundant bird life, opulent architecture left over from a bygone era and lots of lifestyle portraiture throughout.
The Blue Mountains photography course is ideal for those wishing to understand how to get the best out of their DLSR, mirrorless or compact camera. It teaches the fundamentals of digital imaging, of handling light and the art of composition. 'Hands on' workshops throughout the course are intuitive, easy to understand and tutored by a professional photographer. Detailed notes and a complimentary critique of your images ensures your newly learned skills are retained.

Thanks for the email Andrew And yes Mate - loved the photos making me look 5 years younger. The make up artist was a good idea.
Been busy pitching new business all week.....have some time tomorrow to have a proper look at all the photos but lots to choose from.
Thank you for photographing or 43 staff members over the quoted 7 hours. You must be exhausted . Everyone seemed very happy and liked how you showed them the head shots as you were shooting. Can you get them to use by Thursday please? Talk soon
Hey Andrew - thanks again - I loved the personal branding portraits you took last week. I was looking at photos that I could use for my Board resume, Executive resume and personal website and other personal marketing purposes and you nailed it
Great to meet you. Christie and I love your work. We think that the 4 attached, at this phase of our project would fit well and we would be keen to see if any of these would be able to be blown up to a large wall art format.
Andrew gave our staff training in how to get better social media shots on our smartphones in on location at our farms in Murrurundi NSW and Canungra QLD. The training was very concise and professional and he even gave us free lessons on flying his drone. We are certainly happy to recommend Focus 10 for photography for any training.
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!
I just wanted to say thank you again for Friday. I learned so much in such a short amount of time. I’ve been showing all of my photos to anyone that will look and listen. I’ve attached a few of my faves. After you left I went back to a few of the aviaries and just practiced. Your knowledge of my camera was really impressive and the way you explained things to me made it really clear.
We use Focus 10 for all our corporate photography around Australia and SE Asia. Focus 10 always delivers under the pressure to photograph our clients in any setting. |
