Shelly Cork

I did the beginners workshop and learnt about how to use my camera in the manual mode for the first time, very knowledgable and it was a great course in Beautiful South Bank Brisbane.
Thank you.

Chris D

This is a great course for those who want to understand how to move beyond Auto mode when using a DSLR camera.

Paul was very informative and patient in explaining how to use our cameras and achieve better photos. I highly recommend this course

Kate Southward

The full day beginner workshop was fantastic, Paul is such a good teacher and really helped to make sense of the camera and how it works. I would (and have) recommended this class to anyone who wants to really learn to enjoy their camera.
