Thanks again for your work at our conference. We were all very pleased.
Got back to the office yesterday and we received via Dropbox all the amazing photographs you took. You captured everthing- the keynote speakers, the sailing events, the party. We will definitely be using you again when we are next in Australia
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.
Thanks for the feedback and I am loving your photos. We look forward to catching up again when you are next in Byron Bay
The course was great. Have done a few shoots since the course with some good results ( I Think. LOL). I’m ready to hit the ground running now. Thanks so much for all your help. The course was well worth it that’s for sure.
I just wanted to say thank you again for Friday. I learned so much in such a short amount of time. I’ve been showing all of my photos to anyone that will look and listen. I’ve attached a few of my faves. After you left I went back to a few of the aviaries and just practiced. Your knowledge of my camera was really impressive and the way you explained things to me made it really clear.
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
Super smartphone training session for our leisure sales team. Thanks for the complimentary give vouchers to each participant as well. Cheers
