As director of a company which represents hundreds of professional photographers running courses around Australia its always a pleasure dealing with Andrew and Focus 10. They run highly professional Australia wide photography courses and from the feedback from my clients they do a great job, they are reliable and honest and always do the right thing by their clients - we highly recommend them.
"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,"
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 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 Photography is our corporate photographer shooting all or staff and website photographs. They particularly understand how photographs play a crucial roll in our marketing and branding. Andrew understands that we are a people business. Many of our clients started with us as start-ups and have gone on to become multi-million dollar enterprises. Their services and value for money is hard to beat.
A great weekend and I learnt heaps - hope to do it again sometime.
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.
Thanks for the Watagan Park photo shoot of the 4 houses. – Brett was very happy with the outcome and he just wanted to be very clear with the location of the villages (for you to make sure your pricing was correct). He would like you to schedule in some time to go to Wongawilli . Thanks for the great deal on the drone shots as well as the Marsden Parks ones.
