EVERYTHING! Tom won't hold back and is very generous with his time and information. To be more specific, he will go through all of this on the day:

"Thanks again for such an amazing workshop on Monday, it exceeded my expectations and I came home so pumped and couldn’t stop talking about it." Jana, VIC 

"Highly recommend this workshop it was wonderful, learnt a lot and had loads of laughs along the way, thanks Tom." Pam, VIC

"I participated in Tom's Mornington workshop. This is such a worthwhile workshop to do. We covered 4 locations starting with sunrise. So much helpful information given throughout the day by Tom. So much photography, laughs, food and drinks. We then followed up with Lightroom session with bonus of being forwarded recording of all of information, handbook of course and gift of Toms beautiful photography book. We visited his Gallery in Mornington then chauffeured all day as a group. Fantastic value. Great experience. Highly recommend." Pam, VIC

"I haven't been able to stop talking about how good this workshop was for me. The workshop is an excellent day for anyone wanting to get more from their photography whilst enjoying the beautiful Mornington Peninsula. For me it was exactly what I needed; Tom provided expert advice about photo composition, lighting considerations, subject choice and Lightroom to name a few. I am now inspired to go on and take my hobby to the next level by taking the time to practice the art. Tom is one of the coolest people you’ll meet; an expert in his field with the ability to connect with everyone he ensures the day is fun and informative and the food and coffee stops on the peninsula are outstanding." Phillip, VIC

"I have been doing workshops with Tom every now and then for the past 14 years. After giving up photography for a few years I needed inspiration to get out and take photos, help to improve my camera skills and assistance with Lightroom. In a one day Mornington Peninsula Workshop my goals were achieved. Every Tom Putt Workshop I have attended has been different, but they have all delivered a WOW experience. I will keep coming back for more fun learning experiences with great food and company." Gary, VIC

"Great day with Tom Putt sharing his vast knowledge of photography and places on the peninsula. Early start to get the sun rise at the Mornington marine and then onto the beaches. Tom's relaxed style and friendliness helps him to pass on his great knowledge of getting a photo that is special. A special shout to Mary for her special effort with a great lunch. The gallery is well worth a visit." Rodney, VIC

"I attended Tom's one day workshop in Nov 2017 as a treat for myself to reinvigorate my photography. You could not ask for a better workshop, lots of knowledge shared in the field to assist anyone at any level of photography. Plenty of laughs and good food stops included. I left feeling I had learnt a lot from that one day than I had taught my self in the 11 years proceeding. Highly recommend. A visit to his Gallery is also warm and inspirational." Lois, VIC

"Thank you Tom for a wonderful day. The early rise was worth it. Not so much for the shots but that the knowledge you shared with us. It was a 10 hour day and I learnt so much. Worth every cent. I especially liked finishing with a work shop on Lightroom. Even though I use it a lot there was still heaps to learn. Oh by the way the food was great too. Just fruit for me tonight. I think you should call the workshop 'More than Landscape Photography'.” Yvonne, VIC

"Im 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 attended Toms one day workshop on the Mornington Peninsula end of July 2018. I had the most amazing day. Learning from Tom is easy, he is relaxed, fun and professional. He is generous with his time and knowledge. I highly recommend this workshop and I will certainly be booking in for more workshops in the future. Thanks again Tom." Robyn, VIC

"I had the opportunity to do the Photography Development Day in July, and I really did enjoy it. Tom is a very good photographer, who knows how to teach photography. He is also attentive to everyone's needs, and will help you become better whatever your expectations. I really enjoyed this day and I really feel like I know my camera better. In addition, the initiation to the Lightroom software makes it possible to optimize the quality of the photos in a very short time. I highly recommend this day with Tom. I hope to come back one day." Marc, VIC
"I attended Tom's one day workshop on the Mornington Peninsula on Saturday. After an early start we enjoyed a fantastic morning taking photos, beginning at Flinders Pier. It was a stunning morning - we watched as the sun came up over the boats and fishermen and took our first photos for the day. Tom is an amazing teacher - he's relaxed and a lot of fun but he is also highly knowledgable and experienced and very "hands-on" with his students. Age is no barrier in the workshops - there were just six of us ranging in age from 14 up to mid 70's and everyone got what they needed from the day, whether they were beginners or advanced in terms of skill level. We enjoyed a delicious breakfast in Flinders before moving to a second location. Our afternoon was spent learning the intricacies of Lightroom while enjoying lunch. Watching Tom edit some photos on a large screen was invaluable - far more helpful than learning from a manual or video. I would recommend Tom's workshops to anyone wanting to improve their photography skills and at the same time enjoy beautiful locations with a small group of like-minded people." Amanda, VIC
"While a few years have elapsed between my first workshop with Tom in the Kimberley and that of the one day Mornington Peninsula, it was evident that he had lost none of his enthusiasm for imparting his knowledge & fostering clients’ skills. On this particular workshop, while participants had varying levels of understanding of photography, Tom devoted time in the development of our individual abilities. Once again I was introduced to a feature of the camera, not evident in its manual. During the afternoon theory session Tom focussed on a Lightroom problem that I had earlier encountered and which I had raised with him – an aspect he considered held relevance to all participants. Tom and Mary make a formidable team which ensures a standard of service delivery "par excellence". It was indeed a great pleasure to renew our acquaintance, Tom and to meet you, Mary. Many thanks for an interesting workshop." Ann, VIC
"Another fantastic day spent with Tom and Mary on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula. An early start to catch the sunrise over the water, then off for a much needed coffee. Couple of hours spent in the forest learning to master all sorts of conditions and shots. More coffee and food, then a jaunt along the coast for more brilliant photo shots. Back at the recently opened Inspire Photography Gallery in Mornington a Lightroom experience, and yes, more yummy food. Highly recommend this workshop to anyone wanting to master their camera. Tom and Mary are exceptional hosts, and ensure everyone has a fantastic fun day." Jackie, VIC
"Beginning before the sun rose on a dreary spring morning in Adelaide's south is where I met Tom Putt and two wonderful Port Lincoln ladies. The knowledge that Tom so freely shares is, as his logo says Inspiring. Toms easy way of communicating with people made the day such a memorable experience for me. The morning flew by and the session on working with Lightroom was brilliant. Make sure you book whenever you see one of his workshops, it is so worth it." Kathy, VIC
"Took my son on a workshop with Tom Putt and it was a great experience for both my son and I. We enjoy our photography and appreciated being shown around some of the best spots on the peninsula to photograph. Tom is very knowledgeable and a great host and Mick was masterful with his spinning of steel wool on fire. Thanks for the great workshop guys. Truely inspirational." Rick, 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
