video camera training for every level


The quality of your video does not depend on the model camera you use




One-to-One or Small Group training

One-to-One or Small Group training ensures that you will learn the areas of the craft most suited to your work. If you want the confidence to shoot video using a DSLR, mirrorless or conventional video camera, to learn the essentials of storytelling or simply to start shooting for the edit, One-to-One training is a great choice - go ahead and ask every question imaginable. It's the ultimate shortcut to the training you need at a time that suits you.

• Marketing personnel using video for their company
• Reporters who are new to Video Journalism
• Photographers wanting to port their skills to video
• Shooter/Producers planning to shoot news or docos
• Media units wishing to improve the quality of their video
• Anyone who just enjoy shooting video

Interview with ABC radios' Conversations

How wonderful to be interviewed by Sarah Kanowski in Brisbane. I felt privileged to have been asked to be a guest on ABC radio's Conversations. It's one of ABC's most popular regular radio segments with an list of amazing guests who have contributed before me.

Sarah was filling in for regular host Richard Fidler and she made me feel right at home. We talked about work, my assigments, my childhood and as expected, much was left out, so many important collegues momentarily forgotten. I enjoyed my hour long talk - nothing like a hour of live radio to brush away the cobwebs.

A podcast of my interview is available on the ABC Conversations website.
