Andy - I immensely enjoyed your half-day beginner's class! As an amateur photographer, everything you taught me was perfect to get me started on my photography journey. Thank you so much, you're brilliant!

An absolutely fantastic course. I learnt so much in a small space of time- everybody in the course did no matter what their level of experience. There was so much to take in and Andy was a fabulous teacher. Highly recommended!!!

Andy, you taught me so many new skills that I did not know. It was an easy class for me but I still learnt so much. Thank you so much for the hours that we spent together learning. It was very fun and I would definitely do it again.

I thoroughly enjoyed my beginners class this morning. I like that Andy prompts participants throughout the course to take notes at the important parts. The course followed a logical sequence, this made it easier for me to follow. I also loved morning tea at the Barracks. Not only was it a lovely spread, it allowed my brain a bit of a break. Andy, thank you for your patience & I loved that you went around to each participant & showed them what to do on their own camera so that it didn’t matter what camera you had. A great morning.

Great morning albeit the weather wasn't all that special. I learn't more about my camera in a few hours than I have in the last 12 months. Money very well spent.
