Course testimonials:

  • said: Stephen is very knowledgeable and I enjoyed the workshop and had a great day. I will be happy to recommend the Sydney Community College and Stephen Cooper for future photography workshops.

  • said: I really enjoyed the course and thought the tutor was really good. Would have liked to learn more on flash but time was not on our side and there is a lot to cover. This course should definitely have Part II on flash (more advanced) as we didn’t get to practice much and maybe even part III on more advanced lighting techniques, how to pose subjects (family, business, models,) and how to photograph objects (food, products etc).
