Beginners Photography Workshops
Master your camera settings, learn photography and get off AUTO – forever!
Do you want to learn photography and get the confidence that comes with knowing what your camera functions do? And when to apply them for type of photography YOU want to do? Then these Beginners Photography Workshops are for you!
At the full-day Beginners Photography Workshops at the Gold Coast’s magnificent COHORT, you’ll learn all you need to know about your DSLR camera. The day is tailored for YOUR brand. So whether you’ve got a Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Fuji, Sony – I speak your language.
Over the past few years I’ve helped hundreds of photographers achieve those ‘light-bulb’ moments.
Imagine the feeling when all those numbers, settings, buttons and dials finally mean control and creativity instead of confusion and doubt – because once that happens it starts to get really fun.
This is what my Beginners Photography Course is all about – to help you Find Your Focus.
So – Get off AUTO forever!
Spend the day mastering your camera with Andrew Thurtell m.photog at one of the Gold Coast’s most inspiring creative venues. See you soon for a day that will change your photography – forever!
It’s a big day. Together we will cover:
And so much more! Because everything is explained in an easy to understand way, it will help you learn photography and thoroughly understand all your cameras settings. And furthermore what they are designed to do!
So think of this workshop as having someone in person explain the entire camera manual to you. While a beginners photography course of any kind can seem like a daunting prospect, I guarantee mine are the opposite. You will have a brilliant day full of learning and make some new friends along the way.

Have been on two of Andrew’s courses now and my photos just keep getting better and better. His flexible teaching methods and hands on approach makes the courses practical so you get in there and learn photography faster. Love his classes and will keep going back for more, as I have had so many “light bulb” moments when it comes to my photography that I can’t wait for more enlightening!
