Thanks, Andrew for a great two days in and around Sydney. I'm much more confident in using the camera. Very much appreciated...
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.
I have known Andrew for 25 years now and he is always willing the go that extra mile and is a talented photographer. We share a common love for India and travel in general. Over the years Andrew has been the judge for the Australian newspapers regular travel competitions and we love his enthusiasm and commitment.
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!
Focus 10 was out main photographer at all our corporate functions at Tyco when I was on Australia. We have recently purchased the
96o page Complete Professional Photography Course that Andrew co-authored with Code Lime Photography. Its a brilliant resource manual on everything photographic and our company is finding it useful.
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
I was Andrew's wedding assistant for quite a few years and he was always generous with his time and expertise. So thank you! It seems a lifetime ago we shot that wedding at Gunners Barracks in this nasty Covid 19 era.
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.
