The Nightime Photography course with Catherine was very informative and fun! For a beginner like myself I found the information and attention I got from Catherine to be invaluable! I was extremely happy with what I learnt and the photos I took on the night. I would highly recommend this course to anyone and I look forwars to doing more courses with Photoh! 5/5 by Nicole Woodhouse 18-11-2019

Catherine explained techniques in an easily understood way that could be readily followed and enjoyed. The course certainly improved my limited photographic capabilities but was also an enjoyable evening in nighttime Brisbane. 5/5 by LEN CHAPMAN 4-8-2019
was purely aimed at beginners. Intermediate shooters would get limited benefit. Picked up a few tips, so no regrets attending. For a beginner, it would be a good course 3/5 by Paul Warren 4-8-2019

Catherine took me from a beginner only using full auto to a point where I can use manual with confidence & understanding. Also ended the night with a couple of cracker photo's.

Katherine was very knowledgable we both enjoyed the class. 5/5 by Ann frizelle 17-12-2017
I thought it was a great beginner course in night photography. Catherine gave us great notes to read beforehand and to keep for reference afterwards.
She explained everything clearly and slowly and no question was a problem. She gave us all equal help and guidance, regardless of our camera ( we just had a little compact)
She took the technical information slowly, ensuring we understood.
I would recommend this starter course. 5/5 by Annemarie Canale 20-11-2017
It was informative and pretty relaxed due to there only being two of us. Catherine was very helpful and gave us the opportunity to not only take a fair few photos but also spent one on one time with us when we had specific questions or assistance. 4/5 by Craig Pratt 25-9-2017

Good course. Always good to learn new tips and techniques. 4/5 by Julie Horton 20-12-2016
Catherine is a fine teacher. She took us quickly through the basics, giving us practical on-the -spot exercises to explore the capacity of our cameras. Then we set off to capture the lights and Catherine was with us all the way, making non-intrusive and helpful suggestions. The crowds in the city were packed but miraculously Catherine was able to round up the students as we moved from site to site. By the end of the evening we were confident in using manual settings for night shots. 5/5 by Anne Forbes 20-12-2016

As a beginner I found this course to be very informative but very simple to follow. I learnt so much in such a short time and I can't wait to put it all into practice. Catherine was very experienced and made a very complex topic very easy to follow and to put into practice! 5/5 by Tess Roulston 8-11-2016
