  1. Wonderful workshop! Daniel answered all of our questions and was really knowledgeable on photography. We did a night tour around Sydney Harbour, and he even showed us a hidden gem spot to see the Bridge. Highly recommend lessons with this company.

  2. Glenn was absolutely amazing! I highly recommend this workshop to photographers of all levels.

  3. Glenn is a great tutor! My son Nikita loved the workshop. He learnt a lot and enjoyed the whole process.
    Thank you very much, Glenn!

  4. What an brilliant experience! Aside from an excellent tutorial to learn how to best capture night time images and create some special effects, Glenn actually provided a useful review of the basics of photography and how to control a digital camera in non auto mode and use the manual controls.
    We set up in various positions around Sydney harbour and even with limited time in each spot I have some impressive iconic images already. Now very enthused to build on this new knowledge and get practicing with my camera! Thanks Glenn for sharing your expertise

  5. The Vivid night shoot photograph course last Thursday with Glenn was absolutely fantastic. I learned heaps, and got some great snaps. I’d highly recommend it! Thanks so much. Cheers, David R
