What our customers had to say . . . .

“After my wife came back raving about a Photo Genius class she did at Southbank I was keen to book a one-on-one session to help improve the product photographs we take for our wholesale fashion accessories business. From start to finish Paul was extremely professional, listened to our needs, communicated clearly at our level and left us feeling empowered to take much better photos of our products. We have spent many tens of thousands of dollars on photograph since 2002, but this was easily the best money we’ve spent! I just wish we’d discovered Photo Genius years ago. Not only that we received lots of additional suggestions to help us save money and time.”
Tim @ Enhance Accessories

“Paul and I did a One-to-One session, I already had a good understanding of photography and needed a refresher for a new range-finder SLR camera I recently purchased. Paul was very informative and made the basics very simple to understand and put into practice.”
R Harwood

“Peter and I Attended the one on one course with Paul last Wednesday. We were very impressed with Paul’s knowledge and found him an excellent Instructor. We both learnt a lot and Paul’s notes and diagrams were very good. I bought this course for Peter, for Xmas, and he feels he learnt more in three hours with Paul than he has trying to work through the camera manual in the 7 years since we got the camera. Thank you again Paul and we look forward to doing other courses with you.”
P & V Stevens

“I went into this session knowing extremely little about my camera. Paul was very patient, knowledgeable and everything was explained to me in understandable terms, I left the session with confidence and new found abilities! It was great that Paul was able to tailor the session to what I wanted to learn and even provided take home resources. Definitely recommend!”

15 reviews for One-to-One photography tuition Brisbane

  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    Paul took me for One-to-One course last month and it was a really inspiring session. I already had some idea of SLR basics but no real idea how to translate that into taking good photos. It was amazing to see a real photographer of his calibre in action at close quarters. After expanding my technical knowledge at a level appropriate to me, he taught me about light and composition in ways that no theoretical course could do. I can honestly say I learned more in three hours with him than in three years of trying to figure it out by myself. Have been enjoying photography with a whole new perspective since. Would unhesitatingly recommend Paul and PhotoGenius to anyone who wants to learn about the actual art of photography.

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    I would highly recommend the one-to-one tuition session with Paul. The session really helped us get to grips with the – previously much feared – manual mode on our new DSLR. The session really helped my partner and I to understand all of the key factors to consider when shooting in manual mode. Paul used everyday language and helpful diagrams to simplify what has always seemed to me to be a complex and ‘sciencey’ subject matter.
    Paul took the time to find out what we wanted to get out of our session ahead of the session date and I felt that we more than achieved our objectives on the day. The proof is really in the pudding though – we haven’t used the auto mode in the week or so since our course and have had a lot of success with our photographs. Paul has really turned the manual mode into something exciting for us to keep practising, rather than something to be scared of.

    I have just completed a 3 hour one-on-one workshop with Paul. I had a reasonable knowledge of photography but have just purchased a new camera and I wanted to come away feeling really confident with my new toy – I certainly achieved this goal. What I loved was that I was able to choose the entire content of the workshop. I had lots of questions and Paul was fantastic at working through them all. Paul is knowledgeable but prepared to work with me not teach down to me. I came away feeling this workshop was excellent value for money

    Having already had a basic understanding of using a SLR camera I wanted a refresher lesson so that I can get the best out of my photos. I was not disappointed in this one-on-one session, I certainly got a lot out of it and I am now confident in shooting in manual mode again. I would highly recommend a one-on-one session if you want it tailored to suit your own needs.
    Thanks Paul for a great day and showing me how to get the best out of my newly purchased camera.

    I photograph interiors for our blog and social media channels. As an interior designer, I was able to style and compose my shots reasonably well, but I lacked confidence in taking the photos particularly in poor light. My 3 hour one-to-one session with Paul was just what I needed to learn a few tricks of the trade and start creating the style of photos I wanted. Visual social media is such an important part of our business and now I am able to create high quality original images on a daily basis. Thanks Paul for all your tips.

    I had a fantastic session with Paul. He really tailored the class to my needs and I left feeling so much more confident with how to get the most out of my camera. Would really recommend to anyone who wants that one on one support in a chilled, supportive environment.

    I purchased a Ricoh GR camera recently, as all reviews say it is a great camera for street photography, my special interest. The only problem was, apart from being able to compose a reasonable photo, I knew nothing about shutter speed, aperture, iso’s or the light meter. No idea at all, just that I know I needed to know so that I could create fabulous photos. I booked a one on one session with Paul last week. Keeping in mind I was a total beginner,over 3 hours he explained and demonstrated how to get the best out of my camera in a way that I completely understood. It all came together. I now understand the importance of light! We wandered around outside so I could put my new found skills to work, then into the gallery of modern art. I had the most enjoyable, learning experience. My husband and I wandered around Coolangatta for hours yesterday so I could practice taking photos. I took them all in manual mode, which would have been a real challenge previously. I thoroughly enjoyed my session with Paul and will definitely be back in the near future to learn more. Thanks Paul, very much appreciated.

    I have a jewellery website and need quality photos of my jewellery. I have been using a professional photographer for years and have taken the plunge and bought a camera. Prior to purchasing my camera, I contacted Paul and enquired about one on one tuition, during this phone call, he helped me with advice on what type of camera, accessories and lighting I would need to take my own photos. Once I had all my equipment, Paul came to my house, helped me set everyhting up, and we had our one on one. In the space of 3 hours, I went from not being able to turn the camera on, to understanding shutter speed and aperture, and I can now take a professional looking shot! Paul also left me with fantastic trouble shooting notes, which I have already used. I would totally recommend Paul, he is fantastic.

    Already having a good working knowledge of some aspects of my camera, Paul was happy to tailor the session to focus on some other little things I was unsure off. He has a great approach to teaching and is super knowledgeable! I was very impressed with my one-on-one session and consider it worth every penny!

    My girlfriend and I went to this tuition course a little doubtful as we did not know how much we could be shown about a camera that we couldn’t learn from the internet. This is our first camera and we had very little knowledge about how they work and how to use the settings to their full potential. However, Paul was great at understanding what we wanted to learn and an excellent teacher. Showed us a lot about our camera and was very good at getting his point across, there was no confusion at all. We would definitely recommend this.

  15. Rated 5 out of 5

    Paul had excellent subject knowledge and, of equal importance, teaching skills. I am a mature age “student” with a reasonable understanding of the principals of photography. Paul tailored our session around what I wanted to learn. I enjoyed the 3 hours and was very impressed.
