Chris was an engaging teacher, and he covered lots of technical points but made them very easy to follow and understand. Great to see the iphone on camera and be able to find out where all those buttons are hidden and make use of them in the class. Really enjoyable and great tips. Thanks Chris.

The quality of the information presented in this work shop is world class, I have completed video and photography courses upwards of $4500 each and the information Chris gives in this workshop was superior to other course I have completed. Chris has a talent to make the information easy to digest and implement. If you want to take exceptional photos for any reason, Personal, Family, Business, Social Media etc. I highly recommend you attend Chris's course.

This class was perfect for me. I needed some general quick short tips on how to take better pics with my iPhone.
Chris gave some very interesting background to colour, lighting etc; which clarified the why!
I had a few wow and ahah! moments.
Highly recommend it!
Thank you

Fabulous workshop! Chris has great depth of knowledge and is clearly passionate about photography. He has a relaxed teaching style which makes for a very open learning environment. The course outline was well set out and everything was covered, with great examples of topics discussed. Background and history of photography was really interesting and added depth to the discussion.
