Here is what some photographers are saying about my photography training courses:
“I have come away with inspiration and motivation to create even more stunning shots …”
My name is Jason Bellchambers and I am an amateur photographer. I have been looking for material to further and hone my skills and found your training videos most informative. I hear photographers talking about aperture, exposure, DOF. ISO and so on and never quite understood it. Your 10 training videos covered and answered my questions and much much more. You were able to show and explain in simple to understand detail of each subject matter. I have come away with inspiration and motivation to create even more stunning shots and look forward to you next lot of videos and would be very keen to join one of your workshops. Anyone that would like a launching platform into the world of amazing photography would highly benefit from these videos. I know I have. Once again thank you Brent for your time and effort into these superlative videos, I really feel they are an essential tool and it gives great piece of mind that I can refer back to them in the future. Cheers and keep creating and sharing.
“…given me many new insights into getting the best out of my new DLSR camera”
“[These] videos are a great guide to both basic and more advanced photography. As a long term enthusiastic amateur with experience of film and compact digital photography, Brent Mail’s clearly explained and brilliantly illustrated videos have reminded me of key principles and given me many new insights into getting the best out of my new DLSR camera.”

“…give these videos to my 15 year old grandson as an introduction and guide for him to enjoy ‘the wonderful world of photography’…”
My name is Peter Drummond and I live with my wife in Nelson Bay N.S.W., and I am 70 years old.
My interest in photography can possibly be traced back to the late 1940’s and after many cameras I have settled with the Nikon D5000 which I was still apprehensive about getting out of AUTO for my camera work.
I, along with other members of the Tomaree Peninsula Camera Club, attended Brent’s first ‘beginners-class’ on digital photography and that initial class got me out of Auto mode. I have decided to give these videos to my 15 year old grandson as an introduction and guide for him to enjoy ‘the wonderful world of photography’.
“Sessions 6 (Lenses) & 10 (Inspiration) were my personal favourites as I love “recipes” on how shots were created.”
My name is Anne & I am new to the world of photography. As a member of the Tomaree Peninsular Photography Club, I was excited to be offered your Essential Skills training videos as I greatly admire your work. The course offers a valuable introduction to photography, presented in a very natural manner. Sessions 6 (Lenses) & 10 (Inspiration) were my personal favourites as I love “recipes” on how shots were created. I’m off to order my super wide angle lens & can’t wait to shoot new landscapes. Thank you for your generosity & willingness to share your photography tips.
“… confidence in applying what I have learnt…”
My name is Heather Colgate.
My experience with photography is being a “happy snapper” for a long period of time and have had a digital camera for ten years, I have always wanted to learn more but had difficulty grasping content. I have done a photography course but have not followed through with the practice. My take away from these videos has been confidence in applying what I have learnt with exposure, for me the chart you drew up for under/overexposure has helped me a great deal; although I understood aperture size etc I could not put everything together as one. I am slowly grasping the essence of Essential Skills Photography and find the training videos have helped immensely. This will mean I can now take a different view of everything I see.
“Short, succinct chapters are easy to digest…”
My name is David Hamments and I am a Canadian living in Nelson Bay.
I’ve been involved in 35mm photography since the late ’70′s when I purchased my first full SLR kit. I’ve dabbled in medium format (Twin lens Rolleiflex) but really became fanatic about my hobby when digital SLR’s became affordable. I’ve owned Nikon D70, D70s, D40x and currently use a D90 and D7000.I enjoyed watching your videos and also enjoyed reading your e-book. My thoughts on both follow:
- Very well done in terms of video / audio quality – I loved the use of local sites in the videos
- Excellent topics for the beginner looking to get more from their new DSLR
- Short, succinct chapters are easy to digest and try out before moving on to the next one
- Logical, well thought out progression of video chapters
- Great use of the kids to demonstrate light and shutter speed…
- An inexpensive way to get more out of your camera (especially if the videos are bundled with the e-book)
- I especially liked the chapter on composition – this will be very useful to new photographers
