Good communication by Scott, especially when the original course couldn't go ahead due to lack of numbers and we had to arrange a substitute.
Scott was very willing to share his experiences, the things he had learnt himself, the mistakes he'd made and ways he had taught himself. He was more than willing to answer our questions and help us in any way he could.
We spent a bit of time going over some theory and background information on the fundamentals of photography, took some shots of iconic Sydney and plenty of notes!
