FAQs


Do you still run the 1 day course?

Yes, despite having these videos online, we do still run our 1 day photography course at zoos and other great venues around Australia once each year for those who prefer more hands-on, feedback-orientated learning. Click here to find a city and check when we're next running a course near you.

Is this online version different?

This online set of course videos goes through exactly the same content as our physical 1 day photography course. It covers 100% of the same theory, examples and everything - even my terrible jokes are (sadly) the same as you'd have to suffer if I was teaching you in person. The only real difference is that you'll have to bring your own coffee on arrival and unless you live in a zoo, there probably won't be quite the same array of animals just outside to practice on during the practical sessions. You'll also miss out on the awesome catering, the assignment shoot at the end with the chance of winning a camera bag, and I guess you won't have the 1-on-1 time and individual feedback, but you can still ask me questions through my contact page! On the up-side though, you can pause me whenever you want to take a phone call or have a toilet-break, and you can even re-wind me if you want to hear that explanation just one more time...

You can still get the excellent little full-colour, pocket-sized 'Course Notes' Handbook ($29.95) that contains all the theory from this course so you don't need to write everything down, and the set of plastic, super-popular 'Clip-on summary cards' ($14.95) for your camera strap to always remind you the key tips, both of which would usually come with the day, but now you'll have to buy them - but considering that the course used to cost $480 for the day - it's a steal! =)

Should I watch them in order?

Yes, ideally. I've designed this course to flow naturally from one lecture to the next. If you just dive right into a section part way through the course, you'll likely find me referring to theory and examples you're expected to have already learnt and seen. If you already know a lot and just want to quickly brush up on your knowledge on a particular area, then sure - go for it, but if you find that you're not quite able to connect all the dots in your head, then i'd recommend you start at #1 and work your way though - I'm sure you'll still pick up on loads of cool little tips and concepts that you might not have known about even in the sections you're sure you already know...

Why did you put it online?

I love running these photography courses, but I love running photo tours to the world's most amazing places even more! Who wouldn't, right?! We're expanding that side of the business more and more and so in an effort to free us up some more time - and also reach a global audience - the time has come to put this whole course online. This way, people from around the world can enjoy it, some will hopefully buy the course notes handbook and clip-cards that go with it, and some may join us on a photography tour down the track.

Suitable for all cameras?

Yes for sure! All the theory is exactly the same across all camera types and brands, and as you'll see in my examples and diagrams, I include the various terminology, mode-setting names etc used across the full range of cameras. While most of my examples are using a full-on DSLR camera, things like mirrorless, micro 4/3rd cameras and even bridge / compact cameras etc can do virtually all the same things - sometimes the features might just be buried in a menu somewhere, and/or the effects can be less dramatic - but it's all there, waiting to be unleashed! Even if all you use is a smartphone camera, there's still loads of tips you'll pick up on this course to greatly improve your photography - things like composition, lighting, exposure, practical tips etc - all that stuff 100% applies to all photography, irrespective of what type of camera you have!

What skill level is needed?

This photography courses is aimed at beginners right through to keen-enthusiast photographers. We start at the very basics (you'd be surprised how often even skilled photographers actually lack some of these fundamentals!) and then work up. We're always delighted to hear that even accomplished photographers who've done the course still report that they were surprised how much they still learnt. The main concern our guests seem to have before they do the course is that they might not be advanced enough, but let me assure you that this is never the case! We've had people attend the course pulling their camera out of the plastic-wrap and turning it on for the first time, and they too find the course invaluable and still well-paced.

What makes this course great?

There are many reasons why this course has become so popular, but the most common feedback is that it's just taught in a very easy-to-understand and approachable way - no complex jargon words, no unnecessary graphs or irrelevant theory. Having constantly tweaked this course for 7 years, I can now walk you a very well-refined path to learning just what you need to know, as simply as possible, with plenty of great examples etc. Read the reviews - people always come away inspired and full of new understanding. The summary clip-cards and course notes handbook also go a long way to maximising the ongoing value for my course, so you can refer to them either in times of need, or just when you've got some time to kill and want to brush-up without having to stream the videos all over again.

Can you cater for dietary needs?

Yes! It's an online course, so you you'll be eating your own food... Easy! Hahaha...
