■ It is essential to have some background photography knowledge in knowing your camera's buttons and functions. If you are new to photography, our Beginners Course is beneficial for learning the basics of camera handling.
■ Any full or cropped frame DSLR camera or mirrorless camera is ideal. Full frame cameras with their bigger sensors will give better results in certain situations.
■ A wide angle lens eg 16-35mm (on a full frame camera) or 10-22mm (on a cropped sensor camera); a telephoto lens eg. 70-300mm to pull in the views; a mid range lens eg 24-105mm for architectural or detail shots.
■ An external on-camera flash unit is needed - your camera's in-built flash will not be powerful enough for lighting internal spaces.
■ A sturdy tripod - the taller the better; 1.8m is ideal.
■ We recommend you have a quality smartphone with at least one optical wide angle lens. New smartphones now have wide angle optical lenses. Perfect for shooting real estate on the fly such as a quick shoot of a rental property. For older smartphones you can get optical wide angle lenses which attach to the phone.

Thanks for the email Andrew And yes Mate - loved the photos making me look 5 years younger. The make up artist was a good idea.

Thanks for the great job you did for our IBM Golf Day last week

Thank you for one of the best 5 days ever. Lots of laughs, learn a huge amount, great group, food was fab, and eating out cheap. Super cooking class, brilliant photography with masses of variety each and every day. A highlight for me was the Full moon festival. Amazing! A memorable adventure. Sign me up for your Cinque Terre course in October! Cheers
It was great to catch up with you this afternoon. I feel that doing your course was extremely beneficial and since then, using your tips, my confidence and ability with my camera has increase exponentially. Thank you so much for the information on the Indian photo processing lab. I hope that I'm able to get good at Photoshop and Lightroom but it's good to have them there as a back up just in case.
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.
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.
