Great course and I learnt a great deal. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to get the most out of their camera and travel photos. Very fun and interactive!
This was a great class!! It was great to be able to learn the basics and then build on them. Andy was really nice and a great teacher! Would recommend this class for anyone who is interested in Travel Photography
Andy, I thought your class was very informative and a great tool for someone just learning the ropes of photography. It was great to discover how many different things you can do with digital SLR cameras. I am very glad I took this course prior to my trip to Spain. Thank you
Hi Andy, I really enjoyed the weekend travel photography course. It was really helpful to learn about techiniques, functionality and practical side of photography... I sure will be thinking of you as I travel the world and take pictures incorporating all that I learnt this weekend!
The class really helped to clarify some of the technical aspects of photography. I finally feel like I actually know how to use my fancy camera !...I like that it had a specific theme (i.e. travel photography) making the course very practical and relevant to the needs of a traveller. My favourite element was the session on composition where we got to analyse Andy's work. It was inspiring, and got me excited to out there and work on my skills... Merci Andy! C'etait un vrai plaisir.
In case of Bad Weather;
Workshops will proceed unless the weather is plainly unsuitable. Good photography does not require "good" weather and cloudy conditions are perfect for some subjects.
If the weather conditions are too bad e.g. steady rain or very windy the class may be postponed and I will send a text message to your mobile phone based on the Bureau of Meteorology weather forecast at 6pm the day before the workshop.
In which case I will try to reschedule the class to suit the majority of students.
What you will need to bring;
Camera: a DSLR Or "Mirrorless" plus lens(es) Or a Compact digital camera with full manual override* Memory Card(s) ,Fully charged Camera Battery, plus spare if you have one. Notepad & Pen
