I want to thank you very much for the course a last Saturday. It was very easy to learn through this sort of experience. The models were gorgeous! I will be confident enough to do a small wedding and the course manual is incredibly detailed. Thanks.

Thanks for the Watagan Park photo shoot of the 4 houses. – Brett was very happy with the outcome and he just wanted to be very clear with the location of the villages (for you to make sure your pricing was correct). He would like you to schedule in some time to go to Wongawilli . Thanks for the great deal on the drone shots as well as the Marsden Parks ones.

Hi Andrew... Thanks for a fantastic day today. I'm keen to do the SLR 2 and night photography, please let me know dates. Thanks again!
"I just wanted to say that I really loved this weekend course and learnt a great deal. I appreciate you both sharing your photography knowledge and patience with us. Serena and Andrew were great instructors and injected lots of fun but at the same time kept the course at a great pace and ensured we all got something valuable out of it. I am really looking forward to the Wildflowers and Wilderness weekend in September!"
