(Beginners Photography course)

Very informative. Francis is patient, kind and the content is useful. A fantastic experience leaving me excited to get on with the job of becoming a happy-snapper. I will definitely be back for the other courses on offer. 5 Stars

(Smartphone Photography course)

My partner and I did this course with Chrissy yesterday, and I can't recommend it enough. Loads of tips on how to get better pics with your smartphone

(Beginners Photography course)

I attended the Beginners Course. Francis was patient and able to relate well to all participants. The content was what I needed and it was interesting as well as informative. I went away thinking about creating photographs rather than just capturing an image. Well worth the time.

(Beginners Photography course)

I was fortunate to have had an opportunity yesterday to participate in your beginner's course. I just wanted to say thank you for a great time. The content was what I needed and you made it interesting as well as informative. Thanks also for your patience when I managed to get confused on a couple of occasions. I am hoping for a much better experience and outcome from my efforts henceforth

Alan ( July 15, 2019)
(Youth Photography course)

I did the Youth Photography Course and found it very helpful being a beginner photographer. Francis was very informative and went through all aspects of our cameras and l came away knowing more of what my camera is capable of doing. Highly recommended!!!

Friendly approach, succinct explanations aimed at all levels(Beginners Photography Course)

I recently attended a course on a Saturday morning with Francis - it ended up being only two of us in the group (perhaps the clouds had scared everyone away). It was a good range of theory and an opportunity to put that theory into practice. I thought it was a good beginner's course - Francis is able to explain things both briefly, or further the discussion for those interested. I liked the way he taught me some new things with the lens' that I had (rather than stick to what others had). It's good value for money. The meeting place is easily accessibly by car or public transport. The walks are on flat ground and easy to do. Bring sun protection. I'd like to do more of these courses if time permits before my trip!

Re-sparked my interest in photography (Beginners Photography Course)

I found the beginners course very beneficial. We covered the theory but did not get bogged down in it. And even though I was already aware of stuff like aperture, shutter speed and focal length, it is always good to get a refresher. The best part was applying the theory in practical ways - both fun and also the best way to remember what we learnt. It's great to finally feel like I 'get' the AP and SP settings on my camera.

Beginner photography course well worth the effort (Beginners Photography course)

My Daughter and I recently attended a Beginner course with Brisbane Photography Courses. She is heading over seas and wanted to get a better understanding of her camera, I had been experimenting with manual mode for a while and needed some tips and reassurance that what I was doing was right. Francis spent the first hour going through terminology and getting us (a group of 6 in total) familiar with our cameras and making sure we understood the settings and chose which ones were best for what we were about to do. We then went for a short walk and learnt some basic techniques utilising aperture and shutter speeds. I learnt quite a lot in the 3 hours, and now have a better understanding of how my camera works and how to set my camera and frame a decent shot.

Strongly recommend this course (Beginners Photography course)

I completed the Brisbane Photography Course with Francis recently. Francis provided an easy to understand lesson that provided excellent reference material and real life examples, bridging the gap between theoretical and practical concepts. I was able to gain an appreciation of the relationship between the camera settings and the composition of a photo and how these related to different photography styles. For anyone taking up photography for the first time or wanting to gain a better understanding of theory I would strongly recommend this course to people in future.

Excellent Beginner Course (Beginners Photography course)

This three-hour course is an excellent opportunity to learn the basics of photography and about the camera itself. I came away with heaps of little tips about using the manual options and feel confident enough to use them on my own. The pictures I took at the weekend (on the course and out practising the next day) are so much better already. A very enjoyable afternoon, and I look forward to doing another course very soon.

Great intro to getting to know my camera! (One on One Photography Lesson)

I just had a lovely morning/afternoon learning one on one from Francis. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a great intro to photography. Francis was both patient and knowledgeable. The practical aspect of the day made me much more confident with how I can use so many more features to my Canon camera. I will be taking more courses from him as I continue to refine my skills behind the lens! Thanks again Francis!
