I've been running this 1 day photography course around Australia & New Zealand since 2009, helping several thousand people gain more enjoyment from their passion - one small group at a time.

Divided into sequential sections, each video features plenty of examples, animations and easy-to-understand explanations to guide you right through from basic camera setup and composition, to aperture, shutter speed, exposure compensation, ISO, lighting, lenses, histograms, white balance and so much more! The first 5 parts are ready to watch for FREE!

I've been dabbling in photography for years. This was the best course to learn the practical use of a camera without getting so bogged down in details. I learned more about photography in 2.5 hours than I have in the past two years.

I enjoyed the course as a beginner photographer. I learned a lot but do wish a time was spent on talking about what to look for when picking a camera. Time was spent on lenses which I appreciate, the information on a camera would have been just the little bit extra two 5stars. Overall, very informative.

Great teacher. He is a very well accomplished photographer and an even better teacher. He brings impressive examples that showcase the points he is trying to teach. Would recommend his course to anybody looking to get a broad intro to photography in only a few hours.
