The Focus 10 Beginners Photography course in Hobart is ideal for those wanting to learn the essentials of photography. It teaches the fundamentals of digital imaging, of handling light and the art of composition. It's also the complete course to understand how to get the best out of your DSLR, mirrorless, or compact camera with manual controls. 'Hands on' workshops throughout the course are intuitive, easy to understand and tutored by the professional photographer Andrew Thomasson.

We focus on practical 'hands on' shooting with an emphasis on camera handling, menu options, JPEG & RAW files, white and colour balance, ISO, focus / exposure modes and pre-sets. Practical workshops over the seven hours cover types of lighting, rules of composition, candid portraits, lifestyle, food, reflections, architecture, perspective, view point and more. All taking place in great Hobart locations. Detailed notes ensures your newly learned skills are retained.

This course makes the ideal gift to friends, family or business associates as a gift voucher. Many of our participants are flying over from the mainland incorporating the course within a mini break or extended Tasmanian holiday.
