I had a really good time yesterday, you made the course very enjoyable and easy. Even though I still feel a beginner with photography, I can see the potential in creativity, thanks to your easy approach to the technical side of the camera.

Garry gave my husband & I a 3 hour lesson on how to use our new Nikon cameras. He is a great teacher and photographer. We learned so much as he explained everything so clearly. We no longer set our cameras to ‘Auto’. We really enjoyed the lesson. Thanks Garry!

Steph Debnam

Many thanks for this Garry,
I found yesterday very useful and interesting. A good 3 hours well spent.!! Once again many thanks for your help – it was good fun.

I’m so thankful Carol organised the lesson with you for me. My photos and Carol’s are so much better. Carol loves having her photo taken now! We get so many comments on our photos now.

Ilse Roets

Garry did an excellent job of pitching the lesson just right based on the limited experience we both had.

Finally, I can get off auto mode with my DSLR and start taking some speccy pics! Three hours with Garry Wilcox has demystified the process for me and made me feel far more confident about experimenting with exposures and lighting etc. He certainly knows his stuff and communicates it most effectively and patiently.

Gary McGay

Thanks for your time on Sunday. The lesson was fantastic and I really learnt a lot. Carol posted a couple of the photos on facebook that we took of Eva and have had a lot of really positive responses. Thanks again for your time.

I thoroughly enjoyed yesterdays lesson and felt I learnt a lot. It inspired me to take my camera out during the ‘ Golden hour’ yesterday and take some photos around Lake Claremont. The sunset was awesome!
