Enjoyed the course, a fair bit going on in the city and quite noisy which made hearing what Mark had to say a little difficult at times. But overall very good thanks. 4/5 by John Gledhill 15-1-2018

Honestly before I booked I never realized it was a beginner event. Otherwise I wouldn't have come. I am by no means a beginner and I really didn't see anywhere where it said it was a beginners event.. So I didn't really learn anything. Sadly. Mark was great, not his fault I didn't really belong there. I could have probably taught this class myself.. 5/5 by Caty Malo 11-5-2017
The course was very relaxed. Mark was very helpful, relating well to the group & the location provided lots of Photo Opportunities. Very worthwhile! 4/5 by Jennifer Tebbs 9-4-2017
Every one I spoke to after the course thought it was great. I was amongst a group of 5 from the Barossa Valley, & no one stopped talking about it the next day. A few of us took away some very good photo's. 5/5 by kim birch 9-4-2017
Enjoyed the night course. Informative, hands on, ran out of time as so much to photograph. Even though I have a reasonable knowledge of photography I am always learning and particularly interested in the night photography not so much of the beginners photography side of the night. 4/5 by Kerry Malec 5-12-2016

I thought it was brilliant, Thank You 5/5 by Kathy Vasic 3-7-2016
The tuition was wonderful and I got a lot out of the session and am encouraged to do a lot more of night photography. I also learned a great deal about using manual and feel I made a big leap personally with photography. I am quite pleased with the photos I took last night. 5/5 by Barry James 20-4-2016
It was a fantastic experience. Group size was great, Mark was able to provide plenty of advice and suggestions. The experience has encouraged me to do more night photography and provided the confidence to shoot manual. 5/5 by Barry 13-4-2016
What a fantastic course! Within the first 15 minutes I had managed to get some excellent night shots of Adelaide Oval and as we went along became confident experimenting with different settings. Mark was absolutely brilliant helping everyone in the group, offering tips and tricks and sharing his photographic knowledge. A quick lesson on light painting and then a chance to photograph the Cathedral at the end capped off the evening. Highly recommended. 5/5 by Vicki Hattam 15-2-2016
