WORKSHOP PARTICIPANT FEEDBACK
"Hi Mark, thanks for the photography course on Saturday. Kings Park and Narrows Bridge were my favourite locations but Cottesloe wasn't bad either! I particularly enjoyed doing the traffic trails at Kings Park. The meals were excellent and technical sessions were great. I loved that parts were tailored to suit my event photography. Simple yet effective, the manual was also a great addition! Fantastic that personal attention was given to each student at every location. Thanks again Mark & all the best."

"Hi Suzy, just getting back to you with some feedback from the Perth Photography Workshop.
I thoroughly enjoyed the locations that Mark picked. It was good for all because we started at an easy location and it progressively got harder. With our new techniques we were learning throughout the day, ending at Kings Park was perfect! I took away new knowledge of how to create that special landscape shot, which I have been putting into practise a lot more!
Any questions we had on equipment they knew the answers to which was great for me because I'm looking into buying more lenses and it’s so difficult to figure out which one is right. Having the guys able to tell you straight away what was going to be good for us was perfect instead of sitting there and reading a few hundred reviews.
The jetty in South Perth before Narrows Bridge was my favourite location!!! It was just after the rain had stopped and the sun had started peering over the clouds and it created beautiful colours that reflected onto the water :)
I've always wanted to know how to do the traffic blur photos and when I captured a few I was ecstatic! I also loved how Jason showed me a different way to change the colours in my camera to enhance a particular colour or to dim it a little bit, this was very helpful!
The restaurant that we were taken to for lunch was beautiful! Definitely a gem! The food was lovely and the service was good.
Some of the information in the first couple of sessions I had already learnt from going to tafe photography courses, but it wasn't boring at all because it's always nice to have a refresher. The guys really knew their stuff and the sessions were really informative, any question you had they knew. It was also nice that they knew which functions our cameras had so we did not spend a lot of time trying to figure out where to find things.
I really enjoyed that we got the 1 on 1 tuition with Mark and Jason. It was nice to not feel rushed and I didn’t ever feel that I was being annoying by asking so many questions. I knew that everyone else would get there own time with them so asking extra questions here or there didn't make me feel like a nuisance.
Everything that was involved within the Perth photography course was amazing and I had such a great time!"

“Hi guys, just letting you know that I thoroughly enjoyed the Perth Photography course. It was good to meet other people with the same passion for photography. My favourite location was Queen St Jetty, but this may have been because the weather had improved by that stage!
The assistance provided by both Mark and Jason during the workshop was outstanding and the lunch and afternoon tea were both delicious.
The technical sessions were excellent. Pitched at just the right level and the pacing was also spot on. During the location based tuition both Mark and Jason were very knowledgeable and approachable. Thanks again.
