■ LIGHTING - balancing the light, Interiors & exteriors, bracketing, flash or no flash, continuous, the direction & intensity of the light, the time of day and weather conditions.

■ It is essential to have some background photography knowledge in knowing your camera's buttons and functions. If you are new to photography, our Beginners Course is beneficial for learning the basics of camera handling.
■ Any full or cropped frame DSLR camera or mirrorless camera is ideal. Full frame cameras with their bigger sensors will give better results in certain situations.
■ A wide angle lens eg. 16-35mm (on a full frame camera) or 10-22mm (on a cropped sensor camera); a telephoto lens eg. 70-300mm to pull in the views; a mid range lens eg. 24-105mm for architectural or detail shots.
■ An external on-camera flash unit is needed - your camera's in-built flash will not be powerful enough for lighting internal spaces.
■ A sturdy tripod - the taller the better; 1.8m is ideal. A ball, swivel head is much easier that levers. Snap release cam lock legs are ideal.
■ We recommend you have a quality smartphone with at least one optical wide angle lens. New smartphones now have wide angle optical lenses. Perfect for shooting real estate on the fly such as a quick shoot of a rental property. For older smartphones you can get optical wide angle lenses which attach to the phone.

Thank you for one of the best 5 days ever. Lots of laughs, learn a huge amount, great group, food was fab, and eating out cheap. Super cooking class, brilliant photography with masses of variety each and every day. A highlight for me was the Full moon festival. Amazing! A memorable adventure. Sign me up for your Cinque Terre course in October! Cheers
"The course was really helpful for our forthcoming jaunt around Asia. We'll take a look at the courses online and book something in (probably when we're back from Cambodia as we've only got a couple of weeks till we leave). These notes are terrific as well. I've already made a note to take a print out with me on our trip. Cheers,"
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.
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.
Thanks, Andrew for a great two days in and around Sydney. I'm much more confident in using the camera. Very much appreciated...
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
Focus 10 recently ran a incentive, team building program for us called 'A day in the life at ING'. Their organisation and expertise was impeccable handling over 240 of our staff over 3 days. We think highly of Focus 10 and have a relationship spanning 15 years.
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.
