The teacher Nikky was very friendly and approachable as well as knowledgeable.The venues were good to find subjects to photograph and use the tips provided by Nikky and the app. The value of the course was good. I learned a lot and that I should update my phone!

Dave McCallum Feb 2021


Nikky was great, I really liked the way the session was structured, with mini 'projects' throughout, showing a number of different photographic ideas, some I knew, others I knew of, now I'll use more of them

Definitely worth the time and effort.

A great 3 hour course. Nikki was fabulous, very easy to talk to and very knowledgeable. I loved the structure of the course, an explanation of a focus, time for explore and practise and then working together to unpack an editing app. Thank you, I learned so much and l’m looking forward to putting all this information into practise on our travels.

The photography course was informative and great fun. Enough time to take photos, edit and ask questions. Nikky was a great teacher.

Hellen Cashman Nov 2020


Nikkyis fantastic never rushed us and so knowledgeable no matter what smart phone we had.
I lived seeing the finished results after finishing our editing and going oh wow! Look how those few small edits make your photo pop!

Kathy Brzoskowski Jan 2020


Received this course as a Christmas gift (my idea ). Our group ranged from 12-60ish and with hit and miss’ to some mobile camera and editing skills. Nikki was fantastic, patient and optimistic in our potential, taking the time with each of us and answering questions throughout. She’s full of great tips. Course is well structured with mini assignments whilst we walk through brisbane CBD enjoying the architecture, the green spaces and more from our renewed perspectives. The 3 hours just flew. A great investment and strongly recommend to everyone with a smartphone especially if you’re travelling.
