I enjoyed the venues and challenges we were given and the fact that it was only 3 people in the class so you got plenty of time with Matt. It was also a glorious day to walk around Sydney. Learnt quite a few new tips which I hope will ensure that my photos will be just that much better 5/5 by Sue Battersby 25-8-2019

Good clear instructions and information which was a great help in learning about the phone and most of all taking photos. Zac was really great and helpful. His knowledge of photography was amazing and it made me think outside the square and look and assess the area instead of just grabbing my phone and clicking.

I enjoyed the event very much. Zac was an excellent and personable teacher. He communicates clearly the techniques he teaches and explains its commercial applications. I like the hands on approach of the session and appreciate the feedbacks Zac gave.
I've used the smartphone for photography some time before but believed that I've learned a great deal from the session with Zac on Saturday. The mobile edit application that Zac introduces was definitely useful.
