■ 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.

■ 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.

Andrew did a great job with his aerial photography of our property in Bathurst and saved us a lot of money with the inspection of our powerline insulators
Thanks, Andrew for a great two days in and around Sydney. I'm much more confident in using the camera. Very much appreciated...

"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,"
