Over the 18 years of teaching landscape photography, we've been fortunate to have many wonderful participants. Here's a few comments they've made after attending our workshops.
"We’ve been doing Tom’s workshops for nearly a decade now. Why do we keep coming back? We keep learning, and he keeps making it fun to do so! Our photography skills continue to expand, the list of places we have visited and still want to visit keeps expanding and our list of friends with similar interests also keeps expanding. Tom’s workshops are always value for money, you always have everything organised for you - you just turn up - and you end up in the right place at the right time for the right photo. It’s not didactic (unless you need that - Tom’s educational skills are always adapted to the participants) and the food is always awesome! Unfortunately, you do end up wanting new cameras, lenses, computers.... Life is uncertain unless you have your next Tom Putt Workshop booked in!!" Anders & Nicole, Brisbane

I had previously only done two one-day workshops with Tom and with overseas travel unavailable over the last couple of years I took the opportunity to opt for Tom’s Lake Eyre tour. I’m not a confident landscape photographer and had never done any aerial photography before so I thought “why not now?”
I was not disappointed. Tom’s attention to detail with pre-trip information and a phone call set the tone for the trip. The other three participants were welcoming and good fun. Over our time at William Creek we had a total of nearly 10 hours flying over Lake Eyre/ Painted Hills with constantly changing scenery and lighting. The flights were timed to take advantage of the best time of day for our photography. Tom alternated between the two small planes so the we each had the benefit of his knowledge/instruction. (Is cloning a possibility?)
After about 10 minutes on the first flight I forgot to be nervous and actually enjoyed the small plane-no door arrangement. During the middle of the day we had plenty of time for editing and Tom was on hand with suggestions and Lightroom help. William Creek personnel... from pilots, waiters, cooks etc. were all helpful and good fun. If you haven’t seen this part of Australia or wish to re-visit (it’s so changeable) I can thoroughly recommend you go with Tom." Jenny, Geelong
"Lake Baikal is a once-in-a-lifetime place, where every single day I pinched myself that I was standing on water in such a remote and spectacular place. It's larger than life and the memories are etched in my mind forever. And a little tip...try the home fat at breakfast, you won't regret it! "
"Lake Baikal was an out of this world experience. Totally spectacular. Hearing the ice crack, seeing the cracks of ice go down so deep into the lake. It was just so strange and scary to be driving on a frozen lake . But then we went to the frozen BIG lake where the waves were frozen. Totally unreal."
"I had a sensational time & understand why you love Lake Eyre. I can't wait to use my new skills in Lightroom. Thank you so much for helping me with my photography & I really appreciate your wisdom & patience plus your sense of humour?! Warm regards"
"Thank you Tom for a wonderful day. The early rise was worth it. Not so much for the shots but that the knowledge you shared with us. It was a 10 hour day and I learnt so much. Worth every cent. I especially liked finishing with a work shop on Lightroom. Even though I use it a lot there was still heaps to learn. Oh by the way the food was great too. Just fruit for me tonight. I think you should call the workshop 'More than Landscape Photography'.”
