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.
We have worked with Andrew for 19 years now and he is unfailingly reliable and always goes out of his way to help out our business. He have given us training in property photography and is always giving free advice on how we can further improve.
Andrew has been our corporate photographer for 8 years shooting all our events, functions and portraits. Focus 10 is reputable, flexible and innovative!
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
A great weekend and I learnt heaps - hope to do it again sometime.
Thank you for one of the best weekends I can remember on your fabulous Margaret River tour. Lots of laughs, learnt a huge amount about photography, a great group, loved the variety of subjects & our Surfers Point sunset champers & oysters shoot was sublime. I will be doing your Goldfield tour next.
Andrew photographed our wedding in the English Lake District last August and did a brilliant job! He shot from 10am to 2am in the morning and the thousands of imaging are fantastic. Now I have my own photography business i know what pressure is like on these long shoots
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.
