Feedback about this course

“Thanks to Don, our wonderful and patient teacher, I have learnt so much and expanded my photography skills. I never thought I would be shooting mostly in manual mode and stepping out of my (Auto) comfort zone”. A Gardener

“Don is a very personable friendly person with great teaching skills. I am pleased to say I left knowing a lot more about what my camera can do, and excited to practice all I have learnt”. C. Drinkwater
