Hey Andrew - thanks again - I loved the personal branding portraits you took last week. I was looking at photos that I could use for my Board resume, Executive resume and personal website and other personal marketing purposes and you nailed it
This has to be one of the best value and most comprehensive beginners photography courses. A huge amount of content, outside shooting with 10 workshops, 2 night sessions and an additional 4 hour workshop of our choice. I went from zero to hero in my understanding the fundamentals of photography. Keep up the good work!
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
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.
Thank you for photographing or 43 staff members over the quoted 7 hours. You must be exhausted . Everyone seemed very happy and liked how you showed them the head shots as you were shooting. Can you get them to use by Thursday please? Talk soon
"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"
Andrew has been training our staff, photographing for us over 30 years and has led many Australian and overseas photography tours for World Expeditions. A superb photographer with the ability to handle pressure and to deal with the unexpected. Andrew is very personable and always delivers way more than asked for. Highly recommended.
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.
