  1. Had a fantastic experience with the travel workshop. Visited 4 locations and catering was suburb. Learned heaps from 2 inspiring tutors. This was my 3rd course, all recommended!

  2. Such a wonderful small group experience! I highly recommend this workshop to anyone who wishes to improve their knowledge of photography, especially those who like to document their travels. Ben and Daniel give individual assistance to each participant about their camera settings, in a friendly, encouraging manner. The variety of locations visited during the day provide great opportunities to practise the techniques expertly explained by Ben. A great day, with lots of laughs and excellent information! Thank you also for the delicious refreshments during the day! Cheers! Vicki 😊

  3. Sydney Photographic Workshops are amazing!!!!!!!
    Daniel and Wendy really know how to make a days’ learning fun, enjoyable and jam packed with information.
    The travel workshop was superb. Ben the tutor was fabulous and really knows his stuff.
    The extra things and surprises during the day just added to a wonderful experience that I would wholeheartedly recommend.

  4. Wow!! a great day learning more about the use of the camera in different locations and with a variety of options. Ben was the perfect expert showing us – no pressure just positive comments and suggestions. The whole day was well organized from start to finish including the catering . I learnt a lot – now to put it into practice.
    I have now been on 3 courses with this company and thoroughly recommend their courses. I’m now looking to see what else they have to continue my learning .

  5. The day was one very well spent. I had a number of questions as too how best to go about organising travel photography, I tend to be an opportunistic photographer but I do recognise that it is helpful to have an underlying theme and I have got ideas now on that question and also how to better take that “snap shot”

    The instructions on how to frame a photograph was very helpful, I have done quite a bit of out door sketching so I have fairly good idea on how to frame a drawing and it was useful to me to see photos are the same, I ought now to see some improvement in the way I construct a photo.

    I also learnt a number of technical function on the use of the camera I hadn’t been exposed to before.

    A very worthwhile day.
