Highly recommend(Beginners Photography Course)

I attended the beginner course with Francis & highly recommend it. The mix of theory with opportunities to put what we learnt to practice was great & offered lots of aha moments for me. I left understanding what the previously confusing dials meant & am excited to put it all into practice.

Awesome course. Great teacher!(Day and Night Photography Course)

Francis was extremely patient and very knowledgeable. Learnt so much. Loved the course. I was an absolute beginner (always used 'auto' on my camera) and my brother who also did it knew a lot about photography and we both got so much out of it! I would recommend this course to anyone interested in photography!

I would recommend buying / bringing an extra battery though otherwise you might not Last the entire day / night course.

Thanks Francis(Day and Night Photography Course)

I had never done a photography course before or been in a group like that, so was quite nervous. Francis is great at what he does, I felt very comfortable almost straight away which made for a very enjoyable afternoon and evening. There was no judgement or pressure. I did the beginners course and the night photography course and it really cemented some concepts and techniques that I had read about before but didn't quite grasp. I will be booking another class as soon as I can. Thanks Francis.

Highly recommend(One on One Photography Course)

My son and I did the one on one 3 hour course with Francis in order to get out of using our dslr cameras in automatic mode. I was not sure if it was possible to learn how to do this in 3 hours but was pleasantly surprised. Francis is very knowledgeable and gave us very clear concise information. By the end of the lesson I was confident using the camera in manual mode and will never go back to using it in automatic. I look forward to taking better pictures and achieving what I want with my camera.

Highly recommend(Day and Night Photography Course)

Francis is a stalwart in photography and i learnt a lot more about the actual camera in those 3 hours. Money well spent and I'd highly endorse !!! Also he spends the time with individuals, making sure that we understand the various settings on the camera and i was highly pleased with this. Thanks Francis.

Francis was a great teacher(Day and Night Photography Course)

Francis was a great teacher and the course I did (day/night) was very good value. Francis was able to provide individual coaching when required, even though we were a class of three. I would recommend this course to anyone looking to improve their photography skills.

Highly recommend(Day and Night Photography Course)

Francis was an excellent host for this course. His extensive knowledge of photography was passed on throughout the duration of the course. He brought example photos and had in-depth discussions with the group about the functions of the camera's and how to get the most out of the camera whilst considering photo composition. I learnt a lot on the day and night course, and I highly recommend using Brisbane Photography Courses to enhance your knowledge around photography and the use of the camera. It is a fantastic idea as a gift as well for anyone you know who loves to pull out the camera and is still learning.

Massive Thank(Smartphone Photography Course)

Massive thank you to Chrissy for the tips and tricks today during the Smartphone Photography Course! Thoroughly recommend it for anyone that wants to get more knowledge when using their smartphone camera. We had so much fun, and walked away excited in using the new functions/information we learnt today 🙂

Thanks Francis!(Beginners Photography Course)

Thanks Francis!! I thoroughly enjoyed your Into course. It gave me a far better understanding of my camera and of the art of photography generally. All I need to do now is practice the learnings and see if I can get to the point of justifying a better camera!

Highly recommend(One on One Photography Course)

I had a private lesson with Francis and it was fantastic! I learned so much in the 3 hours and was able to put the theory lesson into practice around South Bank. I highly recommend his classes. Thanks again!

Great Course(Beginners Photography Course)

Great course, very knowledgeable and well planned course. Excellent value for money, I would highly recommend this company. I will definitely be booking in for other courses down the track.

Hightly recommend(One on One Photography Course)

Really enjoyed the course and learnt so much. Francis explained everything extremely well and made it easy to follow. Highly recommend.

Great Short Course(Day and Night Photography Course)

He has a great way of explaining things so they can be easily understood. As we went from place to place he explained what things to look at and how to shoot a particular scene. We then took photos and had a look at the result. From there we were able to make corrections and reshoot. The results were much better. Simple changes gave impressive results. This is a very effective method of learning.

Later when I went out by myself I found that I could apply what I had learned and my pictures were a big improvement on this.

I highly recommend these courses and look forward to doing more of them.
