Course testimonials:

  • It was great to learn the different functions of my camera. Until now I had only used the auto mode, so a huge thank you to Zara. she was always ready to rescue me when I called "help". I especially enjoyed the Parramatta Park excursion as the majority of my photos are taken in the day. However it was also interesting to learn a bit about night photography.
  • This question is too difficult to answer, there is not a single issue that made the course so enjoyable. The course leader; Zara was incredibly patient with us, her knowledge is excellent and her ability to share that at a pace all of us could follow is superb. I said "I've got my money back" so many times during the 8 weeks that it became almost a clarion call for the class. I came to the course with an excellent knowledge of photography albeit from 40 years ago. I decided to take up the hobby again now that I have retired. The technology is dramatically different from 40 years prior and I was struggling with the new, digital equipment. This course has given me the knowledge and the confidence to enjoy my hobby again. I would certainly recommend the course and more particularly, Zara to anyone who wants to understand their equipment and their artistic flare more thoroughly.

  • I loved the course Zara explained things in a simple way yet clear I can now make good use of my camera
