Jia Zhen Jul 2024

Great session. I got lots of super useful tips. The weather was bad so we went to the State Library which was an excellent venue for photography and I hadn't been there for years. Well worth my Saturday morning. Would definitely recommend to friends.

Mark Laidlaw Jul 2024

Loved it! Luke was fantastic, imparted his knowledge really well and provided great feedback. Highly recommended!

Cheryl Smyth Jul 2024

Completed my one on one class with the lovely James on saturday 13th.
What a pleasure having James to teach & help me improve. He was so affable & i felt like i was with a friend.
Some of the ideas, hints & tricks James showed me are invaluable for my future travels.

Marcus Rosenberg Jul 2024

need more different areas as 2 not enough as became bored in same locations blah

Bobby Danson Jul 2024

The class was great and so was the teacher
Enjoyed it, will recommend it it friends

Amanda Westwood Jul 2024

Our teacher Tania was fantastic and lots of fun. I loved the different exercises Tania provided to give us the tools about photos on our mobile. Tania's tips, passion and enthusiasm about photography made the class. I learnt so much and highly recommend taking Tania's class.

Diane Cass Jul 2024

The teacher was fantastic, the topic was great, and the weather made it all come together nicely. I learned so much more than I knew was available on my phone; it was definitely worth doing. I definitely recommend it!

Jeanette Bowman Jul 2024

I really enjoyed Alfonso's class, he is so friendly and I learnt so much. He has also supplied lots of backup info and apps that are so useful. It was great value for money. I just really enjoyed all the challenges he set which helped me better understand my smartphone camera.

Photography class review by Jeanette Bowman - Sydney

Erich Ball Jul 2024

We had some difficulty with doing the workshop. Heavy rains created a need to reschedule a couple of times. I was able to work with Alfonso and the team on that, although Alfonso was prepared to reimburse me if need be.

The instructor on the day was Peter Zuvela. Again, we had showers of rain, but he worked around that by teaching the technical material in his workshop. That was at J Shed in Fremantle. Then we spent time walking in Fremantle.

Peter's a nice guy and very professional. He knows his topic and is very good at both passing on his knowledge, and finding opportunities to practise the techniques. I learned a great deal.

I enjoyed walking through some of the back alleys, the streets and the Fremantle
Markets. Peter specialises in a 'Haunted Fremantle' tour. We did some of that, but since I was more interested in the technical we of the Smartphone camera he 'focused' more on that.

Some of the topics we covered were: setting up the phone to capture the most pixels; use or not use of the flash, versus natural lights; creative use of the lenses, particularly wide angle and isolating the subject with background blur; use of the built- in filters; auto focus and exposure locks; capturing movement; multiple photographs and angles from one spent; and, on-phone editing techniques.

I enjoyed any time with Peter and learned a lot. What more can you ask for?

Emma Morrison Jul 2024

Fun, hands on class.. learnt lots! Definitely recommend!!
Alfonso made the lessons entertaining and gave good tips to get the best photos!!

Lorraine Denny Jun 2024

I found this course really useful. Alfonso was very knowledge and patient and answered all our questions. I learnt a great deal and was very happy with the photo I took as part of the challenges he set. Nice small group of 5
I appreciated the additional information that was sent to us

Margherita Carinci Jun 2024

The class was great, I learnt some tips that will be very helpful for my trip.
I really appreciate that you made it go ahead for me and at 9am I was really lucky it was a perfect morning to take photos, I managed to take a few great photos.
Luke was great

Patrice Joynson Jun 2024

photography course informative and plenty of opportunities to practise the techniques explained. enjoyed the afternoon of learning.

Sandra Lee Jun 2024

Alfonso was great, very informative and interactive class.
Lots of great tips and easy to use information. Thanks

Jen McGinlay Jun 2024

Our class was fun and educational. We enjoyed the walk around Fremantle and learning how to photograph different landscapes. Peter was easy to work with and so knowledgeable. Already using what I learned as I take photos. Thank you

Nandita Das Jun 2024

It was a insightful class. Alfonoso made it an enjoyable experience. Keep up the good work.

Cooper Jones Jun 2024

Enjoyable class, Alfonso was very knowledgeable and I learnt quite a few new tips and tricks for taking photos.

Max Pfeifer Jun 2024

Jam-packed 2.5 hours with wonderful teacher Paul. Course was well structured, and straddled both photography theory as well as some of the more specific technical aspects of shooting and editing on our phones. I lost track of the number of times I said “wow I had no idea you could do that on an iPhone!”. We came away from the afternoon with tangible skills, and are no doubt better photographers than when we started. Would highly recommend, particularly if you’re about to go travelling (as we are).

Amanda Lawson May 2024

So glad I did this course. I now have a lot more confidence in using my phone camera. Shown how to use angles and a whole heap of other stuff. Would absolutely recommend this course. Peter was full of information.

Cassandra Leach May 2024

Completed the class with Claire yesterday- it was a great experience. She has a wealth of knowledge and shared this in an easy to understand way.

Kate Slevin May 2024

Great class. Learnt some handy tips which I look forward to putting into practice! Thanks so much Alfonso

Stefan Bode May 2024

The class was great, and Luke is a fantastic teacher! He is very knowledgeable, explained everything really well, and picked some excellent locations to learn. I can highly recommend the class.

Amarjit Sidhu May 2024

I attended a night photography class with Peter and had a very valuable experience. He was patient and imparted all his knowledge on night photography and am confident that I can now further advance my photography Thank you Peter

Mary Vandenbroek Apr 2024

Luke David was excellent and class very informative. I would highly recommend and Luke was generous with his time

Abby Jandro Apr 2024

I bought my mum and I this class for Mother's Day. We had a wonderful time and learned much more than we thought we would about our phones' capabilities. Peter was a lot of fun and a great teacher!

Manuela Cave Apr 2024

Thanks to Claire for her patience and her knowledge during the photography lesson I learned a lot and enjoyed the city and the photos we took.thanks again

Chris McAuley Mar 2024

We had a great time in this friendly informal class, particularly learning to use a fabulous iPhone photo editing app.

Julie Zajer Mar 2024

Clare was incredible and the backdrop of Elizabeth Quay made for an amazing day.
I can’t speak more highly of Clare and her tips and tricks, I took so many nuggets away from today.

David Carvosso Mar 2024

This class was given to me as a gift. I must admit, I learnt a lot, albeit I didn't know what to expect from the gift I had been given. Claire, our photographer, was very professional, knowledgeable and creative. She was able to assist group members whether they had a Samsung or iPhone and whether they were recent phone camera users or more experienced. Thank you, Claire, I learnt many things I am doing wrong, and the editing program is going to be a great 'homework' exercise to become familiar with all the elements I was shown today.

Julie Rashleigh Mar 2024

Our teacher was Maite and she was absolutely amazing! We were given this ‘ClassBento’ as a Christmas gift so had no idea of what our IPhone was capable of.
We met in the city at Anzac Square and Maite began by giving us an overview of the class and what she would go through.
Maite took us through the tools available on Snapseed and how to apply them in the most simple way for us being novices to photography.
By the end of our class, we were now excited and well equipped to start applying our new found skills to our photo taking.
These should be very useful for our upcoming trip to Europe.
Thank you Maite for a very informative class on photography.

James Tulle Feb 2024

Great course, it provided us something different for a date night. Nikky was really knowledgeable and I feel a lot more confident taking better photos on my smartphone.

Luke was very enthusiastic, accommodating and knowledgeable. I learnt heaps about the exposure triad, light and dark contrasts, capturing moving targets, getting the most out of capturing colours, the golden hour and Sun star shots. Now just have to put the time in with appropriate practice!

Colleen & Greg Rallings Feb 2024

Christmas gift from our kids.
Claudia was very relaxed, but fun & knowledgeable.
We will definitely be taking better photos from now on.
We will be more aware of our surrounds & all the great photo opportunities.

Steven Gerken Feb 2024

I come away from the iPhone course with really easy and practical techniques that amplified my ability it to take a great photo. Such an enjoyable experience and the time just went so quick! Tania our tutor was terrific, very engaging, funny and most of all really hands on and helpful with loads of tricks and tips. Highly recommend to anyone who is a beginner or intermediate level with a phone camera :)

Debra King Feb 2024

Great to learn some of the techniques and tricks for taking decent photos. Braeden took us to places that provided plenty of opportunities for showing off our emerging talent! Thanks to my partner for the Xmas present

Jennifer Robins Jan 2024

Great class, I really enjoyed it. Alfonso is extremely knowledgeable and has a knack of connecting with beginners through to the more experienced in the same class

Lorraine Christiansen Jan 2024

A Xmas gift certificate ended up as a great afternoon with knowledgeable Nikki guiding us through our IPhone camera features and giving us experienced hints on how to take better photos as well as editing insight.

Jennifer Choong Jan 2024

Useful tips in a short class. I will find it useful to explore more features of my phone when photographing my cats.

Kris Thomsen Jan 2024

Attending this photography class was truly a fantastic experience. Claudia was not only highly knowledgeable but also had excellent communication skills and was incredibly easy to understand. The different venues we visited were perfect for trying out the techniques we'd just learned. The materials provided, such as the e-guide, were comprehensive and I can't wait to spend time going through it after class. In terms of value for money, I believe the experience was excellent. We covered a wide range of topics, including hints and tips on using my own phone, photo composition, exposure, editing, and much more. One of the aspects I liked the most was being able to see the results of our efforts immediately. Overall, it was a fantastic class and I can't wait to put my newfound knowledge into practice!

Teacher's response

Hi Kris
Thankyou for your kind words and feedback.
Warm regards

Annie Ear Jan 2024

Alfonso was a very knowledgeable and patient teacher. He would explain concepts and then give us time to put what we learnt into practice. It was great to be able to learn some tips and tricks to take better photos using the cameras on our phone and how to edit photos in the app we downloaded.

Teacher's response

Hi Annie,
Very nice of you to write a great review greatly appreciated by me and my team.

Dawn Dean Jan 2024

Really enjoyed the smartphone class today. Nikki was knowledgeable and fun, and we went to some interesting places to give us an understanding of lines, portrait, scenes, flowers etc. Thanks Nikki!

Katya Nesterova Jan 2024

Alfonso was a great teacher and was able to give quality feedback to everyone and their photos! The overall course was great, however if you are looking for something more in depth and complex I suggest you look at his other courses for those who are already advanced :) The class went at a nice pace and everyone had time to ask questions if needed. I would recommend this to anyone who would like to learn more about their phone and the way you can edit/enhance your photos!

Teacher's response

Awesome review, thankyou!

Peter Green Dec 2023

Alfonso was extremely knowledgeable and a very nice guy. I thoroughly enjoyed myself while learning some new skills with my iPhone camera and the Snapseed app.

Dee Carlsen Dec 2023

Thanks Nikky for a really enjoyable afternoon. It was great to see different places in Brisbane that you normally don’t get to see , and the little tips and editing ideas will be extremely useful going forward.

Terri Angeles Dec 2023

Teacher was great. Learnt new skills which I've been using ever since.
Highly recommend.

David Rankin Dec 2023

Alfonso is a great teacher, patient, knowledgeable and very helpful. He inspired me to continue to develop my photographic skills. I will definitely be looking at doing more courses with Alfonso.

Kirsty Brookes Dec 2023

We would like to thank Paul for the Photography session. His communication was great prior to meeting him. We had a small session so we had lots of chances to ask questions and learn from Paul. He was able to spend time with each of us and was genuinely interested in how we were going. and if things were making sense. I have definitely learned more about photography and now need to go and put it into practice.

Katie van den Brand Dec 2023

Very informative session, learnt all the functions of my camera and got some great shots around Freo.

Bob Jones Nov 2023

I had Claire who was wonderful, very patient and gave out some great tips, she was easy to understand

Rich Raymont Nov 2023

The teacher was very friendly and knowledgeable and the subject matter was varied so we got to experience a few different styles of photography. Great as an introduction to getting more from your smartphone.

Grahame Reader Nov 2023

I recently had the pleasure of taking Tania's smartphone photography class in Melbourne, and I must say it was an absolutely delightful experience. Tania's expertise and passion for photography shone through every aspect of the class.

From the very beginning, Tania created a warm and welcoming environment that encouraged creativity. She has an impressive knowledge of smartphone photography techniques and was able to convey complex concepts in a way that was easy to understand. Her teaching style is both engaging and patient, making the learning process enjoyable.

What sets Tania apart is her hands-on approach to teaching. She didn't just tell us about photography; instead, she actively guided each of us through practical exercises some with challenges to complete, providing constructive feedback along the way. This interactive approach not only enhanced my skills but also boosted my confidence in using my smartphone for photography.

Tania took the time to address individual questions and concerns. Her genuine interest in our progress made the class feel personalised and ensured that everyone received the attention they needed.

Thanks to Tania's guidance, I now feel equipped to capture fantastic photos no matter where I am. Her insights have given me a newfound confidence in my smartphone photography skills. The class not only improved my technical abilities but also fostered a deeper appreciation for the art of capturing moments in time.

Overall, I highly recommend Tania's smartphone photography class to anyone looking to enhance their photography skills using a smartphone. Tania's expertise, coupled with her friendly and approachable demeanor, creates a fantastic learning experience that is both informative and enjoyable.

Lesley Smith Nov 2023

Plenty of info and chances to use it. I’m now seeing more through a photographers perspective

Lyall Shapiro Nov 2023

5 ClassBento workshops attended

Chris was our instructor.
He was knowledgeable, patient and clear in his explanations and instructions.
He offered insightful and practical tips on effective use of the cameras and to get the most from the scenes. He offered and provided one of his tripods to help us out because one of ours had issues.
It was a 2.5 hr course and there was enough content - different techniques and effects in different locations - to try to keep one interested and engaged but not too much to feel overwhelmed by too many different new things.
We had 5 people in our class which was a good number as Chris was able to give each person the attention they required.
We learnt some really cool new techniques and are keen to go and try these out!
This was a very enjoyable and valuable experience and we will certainly be recommending it.
Thank you Chris!

Belle led this workshop for us . She understood our existing skill level to start at the place thats most desirable. We walked around various places within the city. She had a crisp plan for these locations. She shared her experiences while walking around and pointing at things and ways how a certain picture could be made interesting.
Overall an interesting sesssion. She is open to share her learning, friendly and flexible to our requirements

I learned a lot and the lesson gave me a whole new perspective to street photography. I now know what and where to look for interesting things to photograph. 5 stars!

Naomi Dixon Oct 2023

The setting was great in four different locations in the city centre. The leader was friendly and informative and she encouraged questions and made sure we all had feedback. The instructions were easy to follow and very useful.
The group size was perfect, just the four of us.
We learnt a lot of useful skills to improve our phone photography and have enjoyed using these skills already. Thanks

Patsy Oct 2023

Smartphone Photography Course review by Shelley Mino - Brisbane

Triana Sep 2023

I really enjoyed this course. Paul was very clear with his explanations and very patient answering all our questions. He has some very useful props for us to test different photo techniques and even posed as our model so we could take some portraits.
He also took us to some really nice spots with views of the city that I didn’t know about, and we could take some really nice shots.
I think it’s an amazing course for a beginner such as myself, and it’s full of information. I had tried some online photography courses in the past but then found myself overwhelmed when trying to take a photo on my own. This experience was exactly what I needed since Paul was right there as I practised to answer my questions and help me choose the correct settings.
I definitely feel more confident now! Thanks Paul

Karl Donaghey May 2023

Paul, our teacher was an absolute delight with nothing being an issue. He treated each student with respect and patience, gave clear instruction individually. The locations were well thought out. I could not fault the course at all and came away "a happy little vegemite". The opportunity to photograph light painting and fireworks was unexpected and most enjoyable. My aim was to get more familiar with my camera and I am now a lot more confident in what I can achieve. Your pricing is on the mark and value for money. My granddaughter and I had a ball.
Thank you, Karl Boening.

Chris was wonderful! I’m an absolute beginner and I feel so grateful to have had such a kind, patient, encouraging teacher who was happy to take me through the basics and didn’t make me feel like an idiot. By the end of the class I had a better idea of how to troubleshoot some of the difficulties I was having and I’d been able to take a couple of photos I was happy with.

As a woman, I’ve previously had negative experiences in classes where male instructors have just started taking photos of me on their cameras without asking my permission which has made me really uncomfortable and made it hard to focus on learning. Chris was completely respectful and even when the kittens we were photographing were climbing on my lap he didn’t so much as point his camera at me. I really appreciated his manner and approach along with his knowledge and can’t recommend him more highly.

Really great afternoon. Learned lots of handy tricks, some blew our minds. Daniel was very helpful and knowledgeable with a good sense of humour.

Suba Surianarayanan May 2023

It is a good course for learning the basics of mobile photography. Basic techniques were covered along with basic editing tools. The teacher demonstrated the techniques with enthusiasm.

Aviva Lowy May 2023

This was such a useful course for anyone who uses a smartphone - and isn't that everyone! Lots of helpful tips on taking better photos and an introduction to a suite of easy-access free graphic tools to enhance and manipulate images for various uses, including instagram and other social media platforms, and making your own personalised electronic messages, such as gift cards.
Chris, who was our teacher, is a professional photographer across the range of commercial work, from food to architecture, so was able to advise on all the participants' particular interests. Apart from the learning, the class was great fun and very friendly.

Geri Waud Apr 2023

Thoroughly enjoyed my experience! David was very knowledgeable and helpful and truly loves photography and you can tell he wants everyone else to fall in love with it the way he did! He took the time to walk each of us through our camera technology and was just so thorough and passionate! Would definitely recommend this to friends! I had ZERO knowledge of anything camera related and he walked me through every thing without batting and eyelid or treating me any differently!

Raphael Pham Apr 2023

Paul was a great teacher and certainly knew what he was doing. He went in depth about the technical stuff with plenty of examples and little tasks for us to do. I think it was a great lesson for beginner photographers. It explained at the complex camera things like iso, aperture, shutter speed etc. Everything you'd need to take pictures in any circumstances. The lesson was plentiful and Paul was happy to go overtime to teach the final lesson.

A truly wonderful lesson packed full of valuable information for any beginner photographer. I recommend lesson this for any beginner photographer.

I've got lots to work on now and will look forward to following up with Alfonso once I've completed my post session editing.

You literally cannot go wrong with this delightful photography class! Firstly, Alfonso is the most low-key yet knowledgeable instructor. He absolutely knows his stuff, and REALKY knows how to teach in a way that encourages attendees to do their best. Spending the afternoon taking photos around The Rocks was wonderful-much better than in some stuffy studio! The challenges were bite-sized, and as easy or as difficult as you make them for yourself. He gives you soooo many red out ed to take away that it’s almost impossible to go wrong after the class is over. Highly recommend!

Sarah’s class was well planned and included interesting locations to focus on different aspects of photo composition. Sarah also showed the group different camera functions on their phones at each place, and we were able to experiment and implement them at our own pace. Exploring Snapseed as an editing app was done in a friendly group environment with plenty of time to experiment with its features.
This class was excellent value for money and catered to all levels of interest.

Chris Cameron Oct 2022

Claudia is a lovely person with a gentle engaging manner. She was very calm and helpful to everyone.
The course was very basic which was good for me as I have always been just a point and press with my phone and edit the photos later. I enjoyed learning how to control factors such as the light at the time of taking the photo and will also find Snapseed very helpful in the future. It’s super easy to use so looking forward to that.
I like taking arty photos so the texture component appealed too and I shall be practicing now to get Rembrandt lighting on my portraits.
Many Thanks to Claudia.

Cherie Moore Oct 2022

Nikki was easy going, friendly and facilitated our learning. She allowed us to interact with others and shared so we could direct our own learning. She provided feedback on our favourites picture and provided examples provide setting us off on a challenge. Loved the day. Thank you.

The course was designed to work well with all phone operating types, our group consisted of iPhone and Google Pixel phones, and he was more than happy to work with both. I found a number of functions and features i didn't know i had with my phone and i was pretty chuffed with the pictures i ended up with. Thanks again to Paul and the rest of the group, a great day!

Howard Croxon Oct 2022

Everything about the class was great. the teacher. Peter, was clear with his information and took the time to show the group how to get the best out of the photo we were taking.
