WHAT OTHERS HAVE SAID…
Thank you! I can finally use my camera – I’m shocked! Your workshop was fantastic.
Mel K, Adelaide
I have spent a number of years being the ‘occasional photographer’ and then changing from analogue to digital left me with a lot of questions. You have answered them for me and I feel confident now of taking good photos again.
The course was very professional, the content was exactly what I needed and your passion was contagious.
George O, Melbourne
Thank you for sorting through all the technical information and teaching us simply and with such passion.
Angie, I just wanted to say thank you for such a wonderful day. My head is spinning from learning so much… I got so much more out of the day than I was expecting. Your simple way of explaining things and hands on approach just made it such a useful day. So I really wanted to thank you for sharing your gift with everyone. I really had a great time and learnt so very much.
Lisa R, Melbourne
Thanks for a great day today! You’re a natural teacher and made us all feel at ease instantly. I feel so much more confident in manual mode can’t wait to put everything into practice, practice, practice. Thanks again!
So well worth it! Angie, I loved the workshop.
You make using the camera a joy!
Hello! I’m Angie.
I’ve been photographing families for ten years, and teaching photography for five.
I present the Love Your Camera workshops and absolutely LOVE the day we spend together talking photography. If you don’t leave the workshop excited about your photography future, then I haven’t done my job. During these workshops I am an open book. Every little tip, secret and short cut is shared.
I hope you can join me at a workshop soon. I am 100% sure you will be glad you did!
