I really enjoyed the workshop and found it very informative. Daniel is patient, approachable and professional. He explains things in layman’s terms and makes sure you understand it. Well worth the money.
It was a pleasure working with Daniel. True professional who has a strong passion for art through photography, eye for detail, and made me feel comfortable throughout the session. Highly recommend him!
Awesome service, great photographer and studio setup. Highly recommended

Daniel was excellent! Daniel was great with my one-year-old, getting down on the floor to let bub crawl around and have a go at the camera. He also provided some really inspired props.
Daniel was excellent! The class was a perfect size and great for all skill levels of photography. Have highly recommend it to friends and family.
Dan is a fantastic instructor. Passionate, easy to understand and the class is fun. I learnt just the right tips and tricks so I can confidently use my camera. Highly recommend it.
Dan was helpful, and patient. Class size was small which meant he could spend time individually with each of us. Highly recommend it.
Daniel the photographer was so easy to work with. He coached on how to pose, move, and smile. It was a great day shoot. I highly recommend The Photography Studio.
