TESTIMONIALS

Hi Andy 

I just wanted to thank you so much for the photo workshop. I think the results at the end of the day spoke for themselves. Your course has empowered me to jump that hurdle, the lack of confidence and knowledge that was holding me back. My biggest worry was the technical part, but you explained it in such a down-to-earth and easily understandable way - something that no "how-to" or "step-by-step" guide can do. 

When I saw my photos at the end of the day, I completely surprised myself! I'm always highly critical of my graphic design work, so to say that I was happy with 80% of what I shot on Saturday is a great reflection (without any polarising :) on your teaching. You can't put a value on years of experience - the fact that we were able to share yours is priceless. 

Thanks and keep in touch. 

Regards, Warren.

Hi Andy, 

I just wanted to say a big Thank you for the Photography course, I thought it was well run and would recommend it to others. 

Since your course I've been taking my camera everywhere and seeing a lot more possibilities for photos. Before the course I would look at something and think that's pretty boring and move on, but now I'm seeing the opportunities, and with the knowledge I got from the course, have got a better understanding of how to make it a good photo. 

Please let me know when/if you will be running the advanced course. 

Thanks again 

Craig Pamment. Auckland.

 

Hi Andy,

Many thanks for the workshop yesterday, good value. If you are contemplating an advanced one i.e. the next stage, could you give me a yell, thanks. Kind regards. 

Bob Wadsworth. Rotorua.

 

Hi Andy, 

Thanks for a great day - I learnt lots. Thanks also for your company over dinner. It finished the day well. I've started culling the ones I down loaded onto the lap top and plan a walk later today to put those new skills into practice.

Joanne Morley. Paengaroa.

 

Hi Andy,

Yesterday I was at your Photo program, and I have just been doing some photoshop .

Great day. Again thanks for letting us into your busy life.

Nancy Evans. Te Puke.

 

Hi Andy
I really enjoyed the workshop, as did everyone else it seemed! Think I've finally got the concept of bringing all the elements together, now just need to keep working on the practice of it :) Felt so inspired the following day that Mike & I walked up the Mount and took photos then spent a couple of hours at pilot bay at sunset... had the tripod out and experimented with a few things!
So a big THANKS to you!!

Amy Taylor. Auckland.

 

Hi Andy, 

Thank you for your wonderful hospitality and great Photo Workshop.  Learned lots and have come away buzzing.  Always thinking of that next photo opportunity.  The Camera will always be on hand to capture the moment.
