Great job shooting the Bronte Flight Centre! Looks like they our client is bailing out at the right time .. retail strips are not going to be hot sellers in the near future. Are you able to send me hi-res of just the external whole building shots please? Thanks
Andrew is our family photographer! He shot our wedding at Jonah's at Whale Beach last year- the photographs are amazing - Kevin and I love them! I would highly recommend Andrew as your wedding photographer. He has also shot my sisters wedding and does corporate shots for us as well
Thanks, Andrew for a great two days in and around Sydney. I'm much more confident in using the camera. Very much appreciated...
I want to thank you very much for the course a last Saturday. It was very easy to learn through this sort of experience. The models were gorgeous! I will be confident enough to do a small wedding and the course manual is incredibly detailed. Thanks.
"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,"
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.
"Great beginners photo course Andrew. Thanks very much for helping me find my passion for photography again. I received lots of one and one attention. Cool seagull shoot with chips from Pier 4 and great you knew most of the stall holders in the Rocks market. I loved this course and learnt so much. I will be telling all my friends"
