Three of us from the one work team did this course today and it was amazing! Francis is highly skilled but really put beginners photography into simple terms. We felt comfortable and now feel more confident with our photo skills. Great location. Would highly recommended

Awesome course. Would highly recommend Francis is a great teacher. Will be doing more of these courses soon

Completed the beginners photography course with Francis and it was fantastic! He was very knowledgeable and a great teacher. The course is perfect if you want to learn how to use your camera and practice with expert guidance! Would definitely recommend and can't wait to do another course.

Fantastic, comprehensive beginner's photography session(Beginners Photography Course)

Francis ran a fantastic, comprehensive beginner's photography session. It was relaxed but we got through quite a bit of content. He explained everything very patiently and was friendly and a pleasure to deal with. Looking forward to my next session.

A perfect photography starter course!(Beginners Photography Course)

I thoroughly enjoyed this course. Francis was so patient and thorough and I learnt so much. He is highly knowledgeable and really knows his stuff. Highly recommend!

Night photography success course!(Night Photography Course)

I did the day and night photography workshops. Francis was very patient and helpful. The class was not too big and we were lucky enough to just have 2 for the night portion. I particularly enjoyed the night photography and learnt lots of methods to use to get some great results. I had a few problems with my camera (purchased 2nd hand) and Francis went over and above to try and sort them out for me. I definitely recommend any photography enthusiasts to invest a very small amount to learn more about your camera and what it can do.

Beginners Photography Course

Thanks again for a great morning. I felt privileged to have access to your wealth of knowledge and experience.

Highly recommend(One on One Photography Course)

I could not recommend Brisbane Photography Courses any higher! Francis was incredibly knowledgeable, and my 1-on-1 lesson was heavily catered towards the areas in which I personally needed improvement. For the price, and the time it takes, I have gained an incredible amount of knowledge from a very skilled photographer.

If you are still not 100% sure about enlisting the help of Brisbane Photography Courses, I can guarantee you that THIS IS WELL WORTH YOUR MONEY AND YOUR TIME.

Thanks again to Francis.

One on One Photography Course

I've owned really good cameras over the years but never got them out of auto mode. I always meant too...finally I did. Thank you Francis for making it enjoyable and simplifying it so even a novice can understand. Now I look forward to achieving the results that I thought only professionals could achieve.

Excellent course !

Excellent course! Well structured and clear communication in a relaxed environment. I highly recommend this course - you truly go from amateur to pro in the space of a few hours!
