My daughters and I had a fantastic time with Scott last Saturday morning. We learnt so much about how to take the best photos with our iPhones and we had such a great time exploring The Rocks taking photos. I highly recommend Scott’s iPhone Photography Course. Scott really is an expert!!
I was very pleased I joined Scott’s Smartphone course on Saturday. Being in a small group was a real bonus, Scott was able to answer all our questions while guiding us through our phone’s capabilities. Thankyou so much for sharing your wealth of knowledge! Considering doing another course with Photo Workshop Australia.
Can’t recommend this course enough. Scott is an enthusiastic, knowledgeable, friendly and patient instructor. Fabulous morning learning about the technical features of the phone and creative tips to take a great photo. Loved it!!
Thank you Scott, for an exceptionally educational and entertaining day. Your depth of knowledge makes this course flexible to the needs of attendees and an enjoyable experience for young and old alike. I highly recommend this course.
Joined Scott for an iPhone photography course. It was excellent and a great way to learn the many features of the iPhone camera in addition to photo lighting, composition and photographic editing and improvement. So much packed into 2.5hrs and Scott was an excellent tutor. Highly recommended
I found that Scott McGale’s photography workshop was both helpful and effective. I can now take photos with better lighting and framing, and also edit photos very easily. Scott is a great teacher and I highly recommend his photography courses. I will definitely be coming back for another course!
Scott did an excellent job explaining the basics of photo composition and editing, making you an instantly better photographer without the need for expensive cameras and tripods.
Great course! Scott was very knowledgeable about the iphone camera features and very professional in the delivery of the course. Highly recommended.
My partner and I did the Smartphone photography course with Scott. Fantastic course and Scott is an excellent teacher. This small group course was lots of fun and we learnt so much about taking photos with our phones. We also learned to process the photos on our phones – really easy and amazing what a difference this makes. Highly recommended, we enjoyed it so much that we intend to book a private lesson with Scott.
Really great experience. Small group so it was really hands on and personal. Learnt so much. Look forward to taking more classes.
I enrolled my 12 year old daughter into the smartphone course with Scott from Photo Workshop Australia. It was such a fun filled time with lots of techniques taught to us. Scott has such a great knowledge and is able to transfer that information easily for younger children and adults to understand. He went above and beyond the expectations we had for our lesson. We thoroughly enjoyed the course and would highly recommend Scott and Photo Workshop Australia to any person looking for photography lessons.
Thanks Scott, We learnt an incredible amount of tips & tricks from your 2hr SmartPhone course. I’ve immensely improved the qualify of pictures I’ve taken today, and these are everyday pictures I will keep for life, so your course was priceless to me. My 15y/o son really enjoyed the lesson & looks at portraits & colours in scenes very differently. This is a course everyone would really enjoy.
Amazing insights and tips I did not know. My phone pictures have instantly jumped to the next level. Thank you.
Thank you Scott, I really enjoyed this course. Who knew my iPhone could take such great photos with some simple adjustments. Great that the class size was small and friendly.
Learned a lot in a very short time to improve your photos. Scott is a great experienced teacher
Thoroughly enjoyed the Smartphone course run by Scott at Bondi Beach. He demonstrated & explained things very simply, making it very easy to understand. Highly recommend the course.
Scott was very friendly and informative. He was willing to assist anyone who needed help. The locations were stunning and he knew exactly where to go for the best shots. He definitely knows his stuff.
Fabulous! Although our class was officially cancelled due to the weather, Scott kindly braved the rain and went out of his way to accommodate us, as we were only in Sydney for the weekend.
Although Scott is obviously a serious pro photographer, he was able to patiently talk us low-tech baby boomers through the basics and we picked up a heap of tricks in the session. He tailored our experience to help us improve photography needed for our business. Therefore, not only was it an entertaining morning, but a very worthwhile investment. We highly recommend this class.
The course was great! I learnt fundamentals that have transformed my photography efforts …. I wish I’d known these key steps earlier. Great course. Thanks heaps Scott.
After attending Scott’s excellent Iphone photo session for 1 hour at Freshwater beach for my 8-year-old Son, I have to sign up for the next course. Again, I was very impressed, Scott has organized and tailored the session very well, where he initially explained the basics of photography clearly and concisely and then takes you to diverse locations around the beach to practice. He is very encouraging and works closely with every individual, to make sure they understand the main photographic principles. The class was for my son but me and my husband too became his students all along the session. I walked away feeling more confident in enabling the trigger for my kid’s passion on photography. You can tell that Scott really cares about his students and is passionate about his craft. I’ll definitely be taking Scott’s next session soon!
I had a great morning with a few friends and Scott for a private iPhone photography course. Scott was very informative and patient. He helped us understand the power of the iPhone camera features as well as how to use various modes and how to edit and create feature pictures. Overall I was will happy with what I learned and it was a enjoyable way to spend a morning in a beautiful city with friends and learning new things!
Had a wonderful morning with Scott.. I now know how to use my Iphone camera. Its obvious Scott is a great photographer and he was able to share some of his knowledge on the day. Worthwhile course everyone should do. cheers
