5 Star!!  Really great experience. Small group so it was really hands on and personal. Learnt so much. Look forward to taking more classes.    Jazmin

Aug 19

5 star!! Having recently changed to a Fuji XT2, I was feeling lost in the new systems, and also had only a brief understanding of the key manual inputs to taking good photos. The 3 hours with Scott was the best thing I have done in years, and fast tracked me massively. His very easy manner and logical explanations of all aspects, plus pages of notes, really cleared some of the clouds from the dark art of aperture, ISO and shutter speed ! As with all things, the more you learn, the more you realise you have to learn as well, and I cannot wait to go through the next steps with Scott over the coming months. Thanks very much !  David

Aug 19

Had a fabulous one on one sesion wih Scott for Lightroom and Photoshop. The whole post production thing makes sense now and my images look so professional. Highly recommended to make your pictures pop. Thanks Scott.    Julien

Aug 19

5 Star!!   Scott is refreshingly honest and took time to ensure I understood his instruction. He was easy to understand  and I especially appreciated sitting down with him showing me what my camera could do. A one on one sesion is the only way to fully appreciate your camera and how to shoot great photos. I'll be booking another session soon.   Brenda

Aug 19

5 Star!!  Fantastic one on one practical learning experience. Scott is incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about photography, and his years of experience show. Provided me with an easy to follow systematic method for getting the best shot every time - somethig I had been missing in my photography to date. I am now a lot more comfortable with and capable of using my DSLR in manual mode. Thank you Scott.   Charles

Jul 19

5 Star!!  My private lesson with Scott was excellent. He is passionate about photography and all things tech, as well as teaching! And it rubbed off to me ... in spades. The one-on-one was perfect being tailored to my camera and my level of understanding. It was a really easy going and fun session and I would recommend to anyone. I'll definitely go back for another session or two. Thanks Scott.      Toni 

Jul 19

5 star!  Had a great morning with Scott taking me through the basics of photography which I certainly lacked!  Nice mix of tuition and hands-on with my own camera. Nicely paced 2 hour sesion. Thank you.  Neville

Jul 19

5 Star!!  Scott holds an informative and enjoyable workshop. I would highly recommend to everyone who has even the slightest interest in photography.   Taso    Vivid Night Photo

Jul 19

5 Star!! Worth every dollar!  We did a 3 hour private tuition with Scott and it was the best 3 hours we have spent with a camera. Scott accommodated our needs and focussed his time on areas that would appeal to us and help us with our new camera and learning to master its controls and the art of photography.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed learning from Scott and would recommend him to anyone considering learning more about photography or even getting to grips with their new equipment. Thanks Scott.    Nathan

Jul 19

I had a great learning experience walking around Circular Quay and the Rocks with Scott McGale as we learnt how to use the manual mode of a DSLR. Scott is extremely patient and is both passionate about his craft, and caring in the way he explains and engages with the crowd.  5 Star!!    Jeffrey

Jun 19

I have always loved photography and this course showed me how to use my camera right and showed me all the cool things. 100% would recommend it!   5 star!!      Amelia

Jun 19

Enjoyed this course very much. After seeing Vivid for many years, I decided to finally do a photography course. After reading reviews I decided to pick Scott from Photo Workshop Australia. Scott was very knowlegeable and gave us advice on what settings would be best for each location. Would definitely recommend Scott's classes to anyone looking to further their knowledge and experience in photography.  5 star!!    Mike

Jun 19

Thanks for a great course Scott. The night was relaxed, casual and informative. Not even the rain could stop us. I've done a number of different photography courses but it was great to get out and learn something new.   5 Star!!      Katrina

Jun 19

Had a wonderful fun couple of hours, learnt so much about my camera and taking photos .... Scott was great at sharing his knowledge and making it fun. Highly recommend this course.  Thanks Scott     5 star!!    Lisa

Jun 19

Thank you for a great course! This is great for beginners like myself who mainly just shot on Auto. And now I'm hooked, and will definitely look into another course. He communicates well and I didn't feel overwhelmed with some of the camera terminology. Highy recommend.  5 star!!       Stephen

Jun 19

Hi Scott. Thank you for last night's Vivid photography session. While this is my second session with you, it is my first night time experience. What a great night! Great fun, great learning how to take night time photos.

I cannot emphasise enough to everybody, no matter what experience level, that this session is THE BEST bang for buck enjoyable learning you can have & what a spectacular backdrop to do it with. Till we meet again, many thanks for unlocking the secrets of night photography. Cheers.  5 star!!    Paul

Jun 19

Friendly and relaxed course. Expertly guided in both camera skills & location. Very happy with the results. Thanks Scott.  5 star!     Mark   Vivid Night Photo

Jun 19

Scott was wonderful as a tutor on the Vivid course. He took us to different locations covering different installations without rushing. At each stage he made sure that I was happy with the pictures taken. He helped with the composition as well.

He was friendly to talk to, easy to interact and answered any question I had. I would highly recommend this course for anyone wanting help or tips with night photography and to get that beautiful shot of a lit Opera House / Harbour Bridge.

Will be looking at doing another course soon for sure.   5 Star !     Sunil

Jun 19

Thanks for a great night at Vivid Scott, got some great shots, excellent tuition as always!     John  Vivid Night Photo

Jun 19

It's the best way to learn night photography! A night at Vivid, learing how to manually set the camera and going home with photos your friends will envy! I highly recommend it, Scott was awesome!    Rachel   Vivid Night Photo

Jun 19

Had a great time, Scott you were the consumate gentleman and a great help when things didn't go the way we wanted. Great instructor, I believe we ALL had a great time. This was my second time with Scott at Vivid. I have posted a few images on my Facebook page. 5 star!       Peter Bridge.  Vivid Night Photo

Jun 19

Scott is tireless to make sure you get the best shot and worked really well with each participant. Recommend to any keen photographer interested in night city shots.   5 star!       Darryl       Vivid Night Photo

Jun 19

Fantastic course and would hlighy recommend - 5 star!    Bruce    Vivid Night Photo

Jun 19

Really enjoyed my lesson with Scott. He opened my eyes with lots of tips for lighing and finding the correct exposure for every shot! I enjoyed the whole experience from start to finish.

It's very hands on and its amazing how he showed me techniques that helped me to recognise faults in shots that I've already taken.

Thank you Scott.    Robert.  Private Tuition

May 19

The session was very informative and a great experience. It was a good opportunity to enhance skills and get first-hand tips from an expert. Scott is very knowledgeable and has a step by step approach, which is very easy to follow and very effective.   Aashdin

Apr 19

Thoroughly enjoyed the Smartphone course run by Scott at Bondi Beach. He demonstrated & explained things very simply, making it very easy to understand. Highly recommend the course.    Marilyn

Apr 19

Scott is very knowledgeable & has a wide experience in Photography. The half day course is fantastic for getting you started using your camera on manual, aperture and shutter modes. The course has given me the confidence to take my photography to the next level.   Simon

Apr 19

Loved the course! It doesn't matter what type of camera your have, Scott shows you individually how to operate the selections on your camera. Doing the course was so much better than trying to read the camera manual. Scott was really helpful and I would thouroughly recommend this course to anyone wanting to learn more about photography and how to use your cmaera.    Deborah

Apr 19

Private Tuition with Scott was fantastic. Up until now, I had always relied on auto mode for taking photos. This was due primarily to my assumption that manual mode was too complex to understand. I also assumed that in auto mode the camera would do all the work and produce the best possible photo.

Scott took all the complexity out and showed me simple techniques I can now use to get the most out of my camera. He also showed me that by taking control of the camera you can take far more impressive photos than might be acheivable via auto. Thanks Scott!      Simon

Apr 19

Very informative class and Scott explained everything in a clear and logical way. Will definitely take more classes from Scott in the future.  Matt

Mar 19

Great intro to photography.  Scott has tips and techniques you're not going to find in a textbook or Google because he customises your learning to your camera. 100% would recommend.    Stephanie

Mar 19

Scott is an approachable + knowledgable teacher / tutor. The course was excellent + and we can now take quality photos. Highly recommended + very practical. We will be back for more!   Yulanie and Bruce

Mar 19

Great course! I wish I came across this course years ago. I would definitely recommend it.   Erika

Mar 19

Highly recommned, makes photography easy to understand and is heaps of fun!   Lily

Mar 19

I booked a private lesson for myself and my father to let us learn at our own pace. Scott was great in accommodating us and patient with explaining how our different cameras worked and the fundamentals of photography. I will be back in a couple of weeks to take another course and improve on my skills further.   Karen.

Mar 19

I'm more inspired than I thought I would be thanks to Scott. I knew I wanted to do this one on one session to improve my love for photography and understand how I can work my camera to my advantage.

I have a long way to go, BUT thanks toy our time and effort you have given me the inspiration to be patient and capture a piece of what I can maybe, one day, acheive. I used your 7 steps today for a NO FAIL picture and they gave me a hint of what I will and can acheive.

You were able to explain to me the technical side of using my camera in Manual ways that I would never been able to do by myself. I have looked at my notes several times today and they have been a blessing and I only hope I won't need them too much longer.

Will definitely book another session to improve my skills once I have mastered the 7 steps. Thank you again.   Jenny.

Mar 19

Had the pleasure of a private lesson at Sunrise with Scott. Learnt a lot and got some epic shots with his expert guidance. He certainly tailored the lesson to my abilities which is more than anyone could ask for. Great chrissy gift from my wife.   Vernon

Feb 19

Wow! What a great morning - even in the rain! I couldn't speak more highly of Scott's ability to pitch tuition at the level of my 14 year old daughter. He was able to explain photography components, methods, and techniques simply and sequentially and provide guidance with her as she then put the theory into practice during the session.

Scott built a quick rapport with her and eliminated the nerves. He encouraged questions and checked in regularly to ensure she was following and understanding the content. Thanks for fuelling the flame, Scott.      Meredith, mother of Sophie

Feb 19

Thank you very much Scott! I learned a lot today. So much better than trying to learn online. Your information was very clear and easy to understand.     Yasuyo

Feb 19

Loved this course! Photographic courses for high end compact cameras are pretty rare. This course covered manual shooting for both DSLR and high end compacts. Scott's information was clear, concise, logical .... made so much more sense than reading about it in a book or doing an online course!

In addition, we had an opportunity to practice all this new leanring on our own cameras. Now we just need lots of practice to cement it all. Would love to do another of Scott's courses!  Thanks.    Renette

Feb 19

It was such a great session where I learnt so much more about my camera and about photography! Scott is a great teacher, he is very clear and helpful. I was very happy with the lesson and I definitely recommend him as a teacher.    Silvia

Feb 19

Where do I start? I only knew how to turn the camera on and shoot in Auto mode. I did the private tuition course. Scott really knows what he's talking about. He is clear, precise and passionate about what he does. The aftercare communication is sensational. Scott always returns your emails if you have quesions.

Thank you Scott, my photography is coming along in leaps and bounds. Highly recommend. Wil definitely do more courses in the future.   Emmanuel.

Feb 19

I was recently lucky enough to undertake a one on one Studio Lighting session with Scott after receiving it as a gift from my wife.

The session was fantastic!  As an enthusiast photographer who has had a limited experience with lighting and is keen to not only understand the basic principles but also receive some excellent lasting advice from an experienced (and awarded) professional.

Following 2 phone discussions prior to the session and after talking through my equipment and experience to date, Scott tailored the sesion to my individual requirements to ensure that I could really benefit from our time together.

Scott not only made me feel extremely welcome at his studio but also made my wife feel extremely at ease in her first modelling gig. Joking aside, for the average person that may struggle to find a willing subject for the session, this was extremely valuable.

After 2 hours Scott left time to talk through any questions relating to upcoming projects and repeat anything that we covered but required further explanation and note taking.

I cannot recommend this session highly enough. If you're an enthusiast looking to take your work to the next level, especially if your work to date hasn't necessarily involved a significant amount of portraiture/lighting you will walk away desperate to set up your own studio.

Thanks again Scott.    Ollie

Jan 19

This was a fantastic introduction to using my camera on manual mode. I came away actually understanding the process and basic techniques. A great starting point. Scott was an excellent teacher - very patient and could explain everything in ways that we could all understand. I will be coming back for more lessons as I improve! Highly recommend to any beginner.   Alex

Jan 19

After completing a 2 hour private lesson with Scott, I was amazed on how much we covered. He's very professional and knowledgeable about photography and also very patient. Scott was amazing. He knew his stuff. He was flexible and tailored the lesson to my ability. I enjoyed it so much that I am now doing his Sunrise at Manly lesson. One of the best gifts I have received.   Chris

Jan 19

Five Star! What a fantastic class! I could have never learned what I learned with Scott in those 3 hours with my previous training avenues (YouTube and Google). The information I received was exactly what I needed to get more out of my camera. The information presented was clear and easy to follow and I highly recommend this course if you are like me and struggling to use manual mode.    Kelly

Jan 19

By doing this workshop, I was able to take the best photographs I have ever taken of  Vivid Sydney. Scott guided us step by step from camera settings to shooting from the best vantage points.   Rudi

Jan 19

Just a quick note to say how great and useful the 3 hour private photography tuition I took with you was. As a beginner, I thought I could learn everything online, until I did this session. Your knowledge and expertise made it easier for me to learn and I am amazed with the shots I'm taking now! I look forward for a more advanced lesson with you after my practicing period.  Thank you.    Rami.

Dec 18

Scott was very knowledgeable and broke information down in an easy systematic way to follow. Finally going to be off Auto and feeling much more confident.. Scott is lovely and will go at your pace consistently checking in that you are keeping up.   Kassie

Dec 18

Fantastic course one on one! Scott has a wealth of information that he explains in simple terminology. He was also very patient with my need to hear the instructions repeatedly! We discussed the nuts and bolts of manual mode and had a lot of practice shots in Manly, guiding me through 7 foolproof steps that I will use for life!      Phoebe

Dec 18

Scott is very personable and definitely knows his stuff. I came away with a good basic understanding of what I need to do but also realising that there is a great deal more to learn. I'l certainly be back. Thanks Scott.     Joe

Dec 18

I finally know what all these buttons are for and feel confident about my abiltiy. 100% recommend this course, I've learned so much.   Jessica.

Nov 18

This was a great class. Very comprehensive and went at a good pace to learn. Would highly recommend it to anyone hesitant on taking on a course Vs learning online at home. It's great to be able to get instant feedback and ask questions.   Emily

Nov 18

Totally recommend this course to get initiated in this wonderful art. Scott is approachable, patient and knowledgeable. Don't think any longer, sign up.    Maria

Nov 18

Quite often, experience overlooks and tramples ignorance especially when the window of opportunity is so small and the subject is so huge but I am glad Scott triumphantly overcomes that challenge with his overwhelming experience and humble personality to manage a group of novice beginners. His abiltiy to teach photography with an impeccable skill of getting in to only so much detail without creatiing any confusion is sheer brilliance. Scott balances theory and practicals effortlessly and that gives the students a sense of learning and accomplishment. I realy enjoyed my 4 weeks sesion, learnt a lot. I finished the course with heaps of confidence. Loved the conversations with Scott.       Somnath

Nov 18

When I got my SLR a couple of months back, I realised I was taking pretty crap pictures. Not acually knowing the technique to using an SLR. After having a 2 hour private tuition with Scott, he really explained how to use the combination of Shutter Speed, Aperture, ISO and focus to take good pics. There was a lot of information that was given to me in the 2 hour sesion, and I wish I had an extra hour to learn more. I would highly recommend this for beginners who are struggling to take good pics using an SLR.     Kirti

Nov 18

The Half Day Photography course was brilliant!. I'm so glad to finally have some knowledge of photography and how to properly use my own camera. Scott is an amazing professional, and I really recommend this course to anyone interested in learning the first steps for good photography.    Renata

Oct 18

I'd like to thank Scott for his professional advice, expertise and friendly personality. On a sunny Tuesday we took time out of our day for a lesson on the foundations of shooting in manual, the concepts and techniques. Scott's delivery made the lesson very clear and simple. Amazing man to work with, can't wait for the next lesson!      Elijah

Oct 18

Scott taught us all the tricks of the trade to feel comfortable shooting events and photos for our print and web material. He tailored the course to suit our needs, including staying late to learn how to shoot at night.

I highly recommend Scott for Coporate Training.     Jo  -  Waverley Council

Sep 18

Had a great 3 hour session with Scott down in Manly. He's a really nice guy, who was clearly very knowledgeable and we covered a lot of ground with some very practical tips. Would definitely recommend.   Simon

Sep 18

Great intro for a beginner like myself. Scott was friendly, personable, and very knowledgeable. It made the learning process much easier and not daunting or intimidating.   Nicholas

Aug 18

Scott was very  thorough without over complicating things. He is clearly passionate about photography and that rubs off throughout the course. Scott makes a big effort to make you feel comfortable and free to ask any questions no matter how silly they may seem. A great course!  Bethany

Aug 18

Highly recommend to anyone who has dreamed of taking incredible photos but just didn't know where to start on the technical or practical aspects.

Scott helped me select the right equipment prior to my private tuition session and then somehow managed to condense a wealth of experience and tips into a simple and comfortably paced lesson. After the theory, we went through some hands on lessons outdoors.

I left the session confident and able to start practicing shots using his clear directions and fail proof methods. Thanks so much Scott.  Sarah

Aug 18

This was my second photography sesion with Scott and on this occasion, I had arranged a 1:1 session and it turned out to be incredibly rewarding. Scott's passion for photography is second to none but what I found more amazing, is his willingness to pass his knowledge onto others. Regardless of what it is you want to acheive with your camera, Scott has the right mindset to deliver the appropriate teaching/coaching style that will assist you in reaching your goals. Thanks Scott, another awesome session!   Anthony.

Aug 18

A course is only as good as the person delivering it and today, we were lucky enough to have Scott McGale expanding our horizons on the art of photography. Anyone looking to increase their skills in taking photos specifically, switching your camera out of "auto", I highly recommend this course. Conducted in Circular Quay with complimentary perfect weather, no complaints from me., Thanks Scott for the excellent tuition provided and the follow up notes too.    Anthony

Jul 18

OMG! what a great way to spend a Saturday morning! Scott opened my eyes to photography. While I mainly wanted to learn about shooting in manual mode, Scott taught me so much more. I highly recommend this and Scott's other courses to everybody no matter your skill level. The BEST way to fast track your knowledge. Many thanks Scott.   Paul

Jul 18

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

Jul 18

Great investment of time and money. Although the course was fast paced - we stopped at multiple locations in just a few short hours. Scott's excellent communication and infinite patience meant that I could keep up and learned heaps! I was so pleased when I was able to recreate several of the shots the following night by myself! Thanks Scott!    Lesley

Jun 18

As it is said Rain nor Sleet nor Snow would stop the show. Well rain did not stop a night of unbelievable photographs throughout with Scott at the helm. Great tips to stop the rain getting into your camera and spoiling the shots. Thanks to Scott for the experience of taking photos in tthe rain. I will be back for sure. You are unique!   Karen

Jun 18

We attended Scott's Vivid 2018 workshop and learnt an incredible amount in those 3 hours. Scott was friendly and made a point of making sure everyone in the group was attended to. I walked away with a much better understanding of how to use the manual mode on my camera properly, as well as good tips for better camera composition. I highly recommend this class and will certainly be attending more.  Joseph and Glenda.

Jun 18

I had the best time and learnt a lot. Would do it again. Good value.    Janis

Jun 18

I just loved the Vivid Sydney Photography workshop! As a beginner on night Photography, I could see a  lot of improvement at the end of the workshop. I took many photos and had a very nice time. Scott was very friendly and supportive.    Erisana

Jun 18

Scott is a fantastic teacher. Very helpful and a wealth of knowledge. Thanks Scott!  5 Star!!    Raymond

Jun 18

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

Jun 18

Such a great course! I would advise anybody to sign up! Wonderful! The pictures are simply stunning.  Lisa

May 18

Awesome!. Brillaint pictures and the best guidance from Scott. Highly recommend.  Karen

May 18

Fantastic night with an awesome teacher! When one says patience is a virtue then Scott has it all. So if you are looking for some great shots of Vivid then don't miss out. Make a booking before it's too late and you wil be so excited and happy as you can't go wrong.

Scott you ar a true caring Professional and that came to the fore last night.  Sue

May 18

Best 3 hours I have spent on photography. Got me off auto! Easy to understand. Scott is a great teacher. Thoroughly enjoyed the lesson.    Jennifer

May 18

I had a 3 hr private lesson with Scott which was really fun and fantastic. Scott explained and taught me a new approach to getting  the correct exposure when taking a shot. He gave me plenty of food for thought and techniques to practice. I had a basic level of knowledge of the key elements of photography and Scott helped to fill the big gaps. Scott is extremely knowledgeable and experienced, and I highly recommend his private lessons.   Yan

Apr 18

The session was excellent as it really opened my eyes to the manual operations process; Scott was clear and precise in his delivery and imparted so much good information in the time; when i have absorbed this i will be back for another type of session; highly recommended.     Alan

Apr 18

Extremely satisfied with the photo workshop. Scott recognised my ability, or lack of, and built the workshop around that. Scott explained the features on my camera that I didn't even know were there. He made the theory section of the workshop easier with explanations in plain english and by way of demonstration. Recommend to anyone that needs that little bit more than a nominal Kodak moment to remember trips etc.     John

Mar 18

Thank you very much for an excellent training session. Elements that I were familiar with are much clearer now, and many questions have been answered. I can really see how the training will have a huge impact on my photography and the quality of my photos. Thanks Scott.     Nickey

Mar 18

I was given this course as a gift from my son who lives in London. Chances are he chose the course becauseof its location in Manly, as I live on the northern beaches. As it turns out I would have traveled across Sydney to attend, it was that good!

Scott is a very experienced photographer and an excellent teacher. The lessons are fast paced and full attention is required to absorb the information being imparted, but the satisfaction of mastering the knowledge and technique is inspiring.

The 8 hours spread over 4 weeks is over before you know it and it was quite sad when it came to an end. However, this is the beginning of years of enjoyment in the wonderful world of photography.

Thanks Scott, it was great!     Geoff

Mar 18

Great instuction from Scott. He showed me many aspects of my camera which I had not fully utilised yet, and opened my eyes to the advantages of full manual operation.   Tony

Mar 18

Great course, learned so much in such a short period of time.  The instructor is completely knowledgeable and approachable, really focused on ensuring we are learning and getting the most out of the course.  Would gladly recommend to anyone.   Sharife

Mar 18

The workshop leader was very knowledgeable and made sure every attendee was infomred and involved. We were taken to 3 different locations under different lighting conditions that made the workshop challenging and full of interest. Highly recommend.    Meino

Feb 18

Was a spectatualr way to start a Sunday morning. Even though I was runing late our teacher Scott McGale was eager to catch me up on what I had missed and went out of his way for all the participants, in what was an informative and educational morning. Would recommend to anyone to give it a go.   Doug 

Feb 18

Scott knows his stuff and just as importantly knows how to break it down to a level that's understanding to an amateur. I had lots of fun and learned heaps.

Thanks again Scott.        George

Feb 18

I learnt more in 2 hours than I did from reading books and online videos for the past year! Highly recommend.    Kedar

Feb 18

Huge thank you to Scott for his patience and understanding with this "Old Lady" for our Private Session. I learnt so much and he definitely needs a medal when I had my "senior moments" when he had to explain over and over again.

Went to NZ and hopefully my photos will pass but happy to get Scott's feedback. Will definitely be doing more Private Tuition or one of his courses. Thanks.    Sue

Feb 18

Scott has an easy going personallity and has a true knowledge of photography. In this session I learned the basics of photography and how to apply them when taking photos. I now have the courage to set my camera from Auto to Manual mode and take higher quality pictures. The session was very informative, hands on and a lot of fun.    Pekka

Jan 18

I really feel that I should let you know that your perseverance has paid off.  After a bit of practice, I got the hang of it, I can do it and I'm getting better and better at it!

Thanks so much. I have a much better understanding of the camera and I'm very pleased with my results.

Thanks for your patience and clear instructions.     Heather

Jan 18

Scott's knowledge of photography is very impressinve and at the same time, very easy to listnen to and understand. I woudn't hesitate to recommend Scott as a photography teacher. Looking forward to trying some of Scott's other courses. Carl

Dec 17

My recent session with Scott was some of the best travel money I have ever spent. Being Canadian and travelling internationally, my camera is a constant companion, so it was great to learn some new perspectives on shooting. Scott knowledge is second to none and he caters his sessions to the individual.

Did just enough technical stuff to keep it interesting but not overwhelming! Needless to say the rest of my trip produced some great shots!  Mike

Dec 17

SO WORTH IT!    Three hours in beautiful Sydney with Scott from Photo Worksop Australia was such good value.

Granddaughter Mikayla (15) and I learnt so much about our individual cameras.  Taking great photos right beside the Harbour Bridge in that secret spot ...  fabulous!  Really just wets your appetite to do another one.   Trish (Umina Beach)

 

Nov 17

I had a most enjoyable and informative private lesson with Scott this week. He is very easy going and his knowledge of photography is exceptional. The information was well presented and very easy to understand. There was plenty of time to practice along Manly Beach as Scott advised the best settings and approach to take photos. I recommend Scott’s training to anyone if you want to learn more about your camera or advance your knowledge of photography. I am looking forward to doing more lessons in the near future.  Thank you.  Christopher
 

Nov 17

Scott has been a fantastic mentor, and taught me how to make the most out of my camera. 

I would recommend him to anyone with an interest in photography.     Isaac

Nov 17

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

Nov 17

Game changer  -  I spent 2 hours with Scott and honestly it changed my entire approach to photography. He presents information in such a logical, systematical way that really made sense to me. I've gone from just taking pictures and hoping for the best to a simple but effective step by step approach that I think will improve my photos a lot! Thank you  Scott!    Hannah

 

Oct 17

I attended your Saturday workshop, and wanted to thank you for your consideration and patience. I typed up my scribbled notes and realised that there was a lot of learning crammed into that morning, especially for a newby who had not used any non automatic settings before.

I had tried to make sense of some of the myriad on-line tutorials, but found them confusing and rushed. Your patient explanation of how the settings worked, their relationships and effect were a breath of fresh air for me. I can now see that I need to practice your lessons until I am proficient, but I now have the confidence to do that.   Once again, thank you.  Glenn

Sep 17

I attended Scott's Vivid Workshop this June 2017 and I was blown away with the whole evening, so much in fact I booked a 3 hour private tuition with him while in Sydney!!

Whether you are a novice photographer like me, or a pro, there is much to be learnt with Scott's action packed, informative and fun workshops. Scott is a true professional, friendly and very knowledgeable and patient. He creates a fun environment, encourages you to learn and grow at your own pace, but at the same time he pushes the boundaries, shares his many tips and tricks to get the best out of your camera.

Scott had all of the Hot Spots pre organized before the evening so we didn’t waste anytime sussing out what was the best.

Sydney has so much on offer, and when time is limited it is wise to use Scott as you get to see some of the best scenery and get some amazing shots.

From the basic fundamentals of composition and lighting I also learnt a lot about portraiture, shooting moving objects, long exposure, and all those question marks of how to get a top image. 

If you want to really get to know how to use your camera, gain the confidence with learning some simple and amazing techniques, get the best out of your lenses and software and have a whole lot of fun. then you want to book one of Scott;'s workshops. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! -- Rowena Richards, Queenstown NZ

Scott's private lesson was beyond all expectations.  From the minute you're with him you know you're with an elite photographer who has a wealth of knowledge and experience as well as an inspiring and energising teacher.  Scott's ability to take complex technical theories and convert them to every day language that's easy to understand and simple to apply is a mark of a great teacher.  Highly recommend his one on one lesson because Scott was able to customise and tailor the lesson to my personal camera and current needs.  Scott - the lesson this week was invaluable and you're such an inspiration.  Can't wait to see you again to practice setting up a shoot!  Kylie

I can't rate this workshop high enough. Scott is excellent. A great teacher and communicator. Explains things simply and logically to ensure students get the best possible results. Very well organised. Scott knows his timings to ensure the group is in the right place at the right moment to get great photos. His instructional workshop over coffee bought the morning practical all together and has allowed me to go on practicing what I have learned. I will be doing other courses of Scott's as I progress.

With such incredible passion and a great deal of experience in photography, Scott was an amazing teacher with a patient and direct nature. 

I would certainly recommend this course to all my friends who wanted to learn how to utilise their cameras to the max! 

Thank you Scott! See you at the Sunrise shoot!  Carmel

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

Great session - Scott was very patient and explained things clearly to our group. It was a detailed session and the tutor was very happy to share all of his knowledge (which is clearly considerable). Enjoyable and challenging morning, certainly worthwhile. Leah

Scott was friendly and informative and his experience with photography of all kinds reallt showed. As beginners it is easy to feel lost sometimes but there was no question you could not ask Scott, he was very helpful and we both enjoyed the experience greatly!  Kim

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

Thanks for a great session this morning! Both practical and theoretical parts were very beneficial to me. 

I had a great time and will definitely join more sessions in the future!  Ilan

Had a fantastic 3 hour private tuition with Scott. Learnt so much using both my DSLR camera and old style film camera. Would definitely come back and do more sessions!    Raphy

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

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
