Andrew gave our staff training in how to get better social media shots on our smartphones in on location at our farms in Murrurundi NSW and Canungra QLD. The training was very concise and professional and he even gave us free lessons on flying his drone. We are certainly happy to recommend Focus 10 for photography for any training.

"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,"
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
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
