This is a really great introductory course to teach you how to shoot in manual. Scott was friendly, approachable and above all extremely knowledgeable. The content was taught really well and the course was a good mix of theory and practice.  Ruby

This was a great course. Scott was really good at identifying where we needed help and what we were doing wrong straight away. I learnt lots of simple tips that I can put into practice straight away, as well as some more detailed information that will help with developing my skills. Jessica

This course has lightened up my life! I enjoyed every Thursday night. I recommend it to everyone especially if you really want to learn and have fun too.  Erica

This course is excellant! Scott is a very patient, approchable and effective teacher. I came in never using manual settings on a DSLR and have taken pictures I had never imagined I could produce! And it has been great fun! Thanks Scott.  Rakhee

I received a gift voucher for a one on one course with Scott.  It was clear from his web site that he’s an amazing photographer and I enjoyed every minute of the three hour course.  It was very practical and not only did we cover a wide range of photography styles and conditions but Scott also tailored the course to cover the particular sort of shots I was interested in taking.    Scott has a great communication style and was able to answer all my questions (and there were lots of them) in great detail.  After having this camera for years it’s very exciting to be taking it off Auto!  I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Scott’s course and I can’t wait to do a follow up session to take my photography to the next level.  Deborah

As a complete beginner to manual mode shooting, I found  Scott’s tuition to be logical and easy to follow, while simultaneously being quite in-depth on technical skills and the theory behind photography settings.  Scott’s skills and professional reputation really shined through as he talked through how to adjust for different photography scenarios. A great two hours, am really looking forward to building on the foundation in my next class.   Chanelle

This is the second time I’ve been on one of Scott’s workshops. The first was a beginner series of classes and this one was the renowned 2hr private session – It lived up to expectations, we were so busy working on setting up photos and technical recaps the 2 hours flew by.

There was a lot going on and I realised how rusty I was still – lots of things were reinforced from the class sessions which was great, plus I’ve came away with some great landscape photos to boot – Thoroughly recommend. thanks again Scott.    Oliver

I loved the 3hr session. Apart from being a gorgeous day on Sydney Harbour it was the perfect mix of theory and practical. He was able to tailor the session to my experience and most importantly run it at my pace.

When you go for a session with Scott be sure and ask the questions you have always been too afraid to and bring a notepad – you won’t regret it!

Thank you Scott – I feel like it’s all finally clicked and I now have the confidence to go out and shoot!  Christine

2 hours with Scott has completely changed the way I approach photography. I've gone from being a man who is confused by the various dials and switches on my camera, to someone who understands the immense lengths it takes to take a perfect photo, and who is looking forward to improving as a photographer. Thank you for such an informative session Scott. It was an unforgettable experience.  Rory

A fantastic introduction to digital photography. I was an absolute novice with a decent camera that was wasted on me. Scott is very enthusiastic in his teaching style & explains terms/concepts in an easy to understand way. Thanks Scott.  Kristie

The half day course offers an amazing amount of information. The best thing is that the information is put into immediate practice with the guidance and assistance of an absolute expert.

I have already booked into the Manly sunrise course and look forward to building on the skills that I learned at The Rocks.  David

Thanks for a great time. I found it to be very helpful and informative. Scott's expanation and guidance on technical issues was clear and easy to understand. I must commend Scott on his patience with us. I would recommend the experience to any keen photographer. Jill

I have been using an SLR since before DSLRs were invented! And Scott crammed so much into two hours, I may as well have not bothered with the last 30 years. Even down to how I should hold my camera (no, no, no, Wrong!). Scott provides a large amount of terrific info, so if you are at all interested in understanding what you need to do to take a "better" photo, do this course. There is a LOT to take in, but it's given to you in such a way that you can record it, slow down if you need to, and learn the proper fundamentals of great photography. Great job Scott. Mark

I loved the Sunrise course on Sunday! I already had a reasonable understanding of aperture, ISO and shutter speed, but Scott brought them all together for me really well. The light was amazing and I was taught us how to capture and work with it. Thank you.  Leigh

Thanks again for this morning. Ass mentioned, I found the theory part alone worth the price of admission. I'm looking forward to applying some of the techniques in other kinds of shots as well. There's still a lot for me to work on - composition, DOF, processing - but I feel like I got a lot out of the course. Always learning smiley  Gareth

I didn't think I was going to learn much as I had a strong theory background. I am delighted to say that I was completely wrong! Loved the course, learnt a huge amount and my photography has improved drastically as a result.   Clive

This is a great start to using your camera on manual and understanding the creative elements of photography. Anyone interested in taking creative photos will love this course. I want to thank Scott for making the course really enjoyable and interesting.  Jane

Scott is talented at conveying his breadth and depth of knowledge and years of experience to students from widely varying backgrounds. His enthusiasm and sense of making photography 'fun' is hugely motivating. Inspirational course!   Sue

Great instructor. The instructor quickly identified the level I was at and tailored the course to my needs. Learnt a lot of new tricks. My aim was to use my camera in manual mode and I am now much more confident to do so.  Jon

Scott was simply fantastic on the photography course. I was very fortunate to have a one-on-one session and he talked me through how to use the camera (It was my first time using a manual), and how best to take the actual photo. Scott is very friendly and patient. This experience comes highly recommended and it was such a nice way to start the day. Scott even spent time advising me on a start-up set for a beginner and which cameras to buy with a discount. One of the best mornings I have had in Australia!  Rebecca
