Steph and I both loved our workshop with Chris. He really gave us an insight into how a professional photographer operates. What I loved was the way that he took us through the whole process that goes into producing a great photo (planning, shooting, post production). He is very knowledgable and answered all questions along the way. Even though we didn’t have great weather conditions, we still came away from the workshop with some great shots and having learned a tonne!

Chris has set up an amazing program that introduces and supports the essential foundations of photography. The workshops are highly interactive, well-structured and focus on getting the most out of your camera. Through his own personal experiences, Chris has developed a wealth of photography knowledge that he passes on to students through his workshops. He has been a dedicated, responsible and patient mentor for my son, Spencer. I am amazed at how much Spencer has improved his photography skills and developed his own unique style over the duration of the lessons.

Signing up for workshops with Chris was one of the best decisions I have ever made – I used to shoot and hope for the best, now I have the technical knowledge to frame and structure my shot as well as edit my photos to convey inspiring surf photography.

Chris was most helpful and informative when I spent some time with him. He was very knowledgeable and most friendly and could not have been more helpful in assisting me with advice on gear and some technical aspects of shooting.

I would not hesitate to recommend Chris’ workshops to anyone looking to improve their photography skills; or to gain an understanding or assistance with the sometimes tricky business of photo editing and the like.

A bonus is his generous spirit and can do attitude. I was incredibly grateful for the assistance I received from Chris.

This workshop is one of the best things I’ve done for myself. I learnt so much and every little detail that is crucial in photography to get the right shot. I have always wanted to get in the water with my camera and this workshop is the no. 1 opportunity. I was taught all the camera setting and how it actually works and also how to set the housing up and how to keep water from destroying a very expensive gear. I recommend this workshop to anyone who is interested in surf photography.
