    Thank you for another great workshop. You guys rock. Warm regards

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    Had a great day…. learnt a lot. I never really thought that a Speedlite Flash could be so useful, as I always thought that studio lighting would be better suited. It was good to get back into photography and relearn the basics and to learn to create window lighting without a window!…. Thanks

    The Speedlite Photography workshop was exactly what I needed… I had enrolled in a 12 week OTEN course which was cancelled the day before it commenced. I then googled and found this course which could be achieved in one full day which suited me perfectly. Daniel was an amazing facilitator who was very open with sharing his experience and tips. I learned so much and now looking forward to putting it into practice. We were very well looked after by Daniel, Chris and Wendy and it was a very personalised experience. I highly recommend SPW and am looking forward to going back to learn some more.

    Just a quick note to say thank you for a great ‘hands on’ day of Speedlite photography. While it remains a huge learning curve for me, I really enjoyed getting out of my comfort zone and exploring the possibilities that flash offers, especially off the camera! The models were great and what a terrific location you have in your studio and the surrounding area. Thank you also for superb hospitality throughout the day.
    Love your work

    Another great day learning from Daniel.
    Learned a lot more than just utilising speedlights – the whole day was intuitive from start to finish and very well organised. Was a great follow up to the portraiture session.

  14. Rated 5 out of 5

    Absolutely awesome course. I learnt a lot in such a short time. I cant wait to put it into practice.

  15. Rated 5 out of 5

    Yet another excellent day out with the SPW team. I learned a few new tricks. Will be going back for more

  16. Rated 5 out of 5

    The speedlite workshop de-mystifies artificial lighting for photographers, teaching the skills of outdoor and studio flash photography using accessible equipment, and inspires with progressively more spectacular sets, props and models. There were plenty of opportunities to shoot each scenario with your own creativity. I was left with an eager anticipation of practising these skills later, and a renewed passion for the art of photography. Daniel, Chris and Wendy – thank you for what you do!
