“I can’t recommend Mark Galer’s training highly enough. His thorough knowledge – and I do mean thorough – of Sony Alpha cameras, and his accessible teaching style, will ensure you get the most from your Sony gear. Well worth the money. Seriously.” (3-day training)

Jeff from Montana

“I completed a full day one-on-one session on Lightroom with Mark Galer in January  2017 . My grasp of Lightroom was patchy and disorganised prior to the session. It is clear Mark is an experienced Educator. He was friendly, made me feel very much at ease and provided an excellent environment to learn. He had planned the session specifically around my goals. The day was very productive. I came away feeling very comfortable with Lightroom and was able to make major positive changes to my Lightroom practice. I highly recommend Mark for anyone wanting a time-effective way to learn about Lightroom, whether as a learner or someone with some experience”

David from Victoria

“I spent an amazing one-on-one tuition session with lecturer, author, photographer and Sony ambassador Mark Galer.
His help demystifying and explaining In layman terms some of the functions of my new Sony a99ii and Lightroom produced many ‘aha’ moments. ! I cannot recommend him highly enough.”

Sue from Victoria

“I just completed an all day One-on-One training session with Mark that was tailored to my requirements. Topics covered action/sports photography, time lapse, video and off camera flash with a few Lightroom tips and tricks thrown in for good measure. Mark is a great educator who made the day fun, informative and relevant.”

Erich from New South Wales

I have thoroughly enjoyed our one to one sessions so far. Especially since I bought my new Sony A7R3.

I find the workshops very informative and easy to follow. I especially enjoyed our outdoor shoot with the landscape and action workshop. I understand my camera more so than I ever did, so much as I have told a friend who bought her new Sony a month ago. I’m sure I will be seeing you again.
