TESTIMONIALS FROM THIS COURSE
ABOUT TOM PUTT
"I'm re-introducing myself to photography and after listening to Tom's presentations at the Bright Photography Festival decided to attend a one day workshop with him. Despite the temperamental weather, its was a really great day. Tom took the time to work with us each individually generously answering all our questions and giving great guidance. Oh and the food, laughter and camaraderie made it all the more enjoyable." Christine, VIC
"As a birthday present from my husband and kids I was given this opportunity to attend the one day workshop on the Mornington Peninsular. To be honest I was a bit apprehensive as I had only recently started my photography journey and wondered if it was all going to be out of my depth. I needn't have worried. This is a very hands on workshop with a lot of instruction on composition and light as well as the mechanics of exposure, histogram, ISO etc. The day finishes with a couple of hours learning some of the basics of Lightroom to get you started. Tom is a fantastic teacher and spends heaps of one on one time to explain concepts. The day is very relaxed and also loved the great little cafe's we went to for breakfast and lunch. Thanks Tom.... absolutely brilliant!" Lorelei, VIC
"I recently attended a one day workshop on the Mornington Peninsula with Tom and loved it! This was a perfect introduction to photography - a practical hands-on learning experience in some beautiful locations. Highly recommend!" Jasmin, VIC
