The Photo One session today at TEDS cameras with Joe Moreno was fantastic, very informative. Thank you Joe for taking your time to answer our questions in great detail.
Recommend this training session to anyone starting out in Photography.

This is mainly feedback about two camera courses I did recently at TEDS cameras. They were both led by Joe Moreno: Basic camera introductory and Photo 1. Excellent courses with plenty of personal assistance along with the group experience. What could be overwhelming concepts to beginners are explained simply and made understandable. A mixture of talking, explanatory slides on screen and hands-on experience left me feeling much more comfortable with my new camera by the end of each course.
The Photo 1 course was a very enjoyable and informative wander around the streets of Sydney and Hyde Park with much discussion and practice along the way. Very much looking forward to the next course after spending time Using the. camera.

I attended two tecent classes at Ted's Sydney run by Joe Moreno.... prime lenses and macros. I really enjoyed both classes and learned a lot. Joe is an excellent teacher.. knowledgeable, helpful and patient. He makes sure that all class members get quality attention and I felt comfortable about asking questions. These classes are great. Highly recommended.

I was here for Photo One Beginner Class at TEDS cameras. I didn't know everyone would attend the class with their own camera. I was just planning to get one for myself.However, Joe was very kind to lend the one of the camera in store to me so I could play around and have a better idea on the composition of photograph. The whole class was very engaging and gave lot of hands-on experience. You can raise you questions any time in class and Joe is always very willing to answer. I personally find it is very informative and really enjoyed it.

I was very blessed recently to have a one on one lesson with Joe! From the minute I met Joe he put me at ease making it a lot easier for me to concentrate on the task at hand! Joe just talked to me about my photography and established where I was up to before we went into the field. He made my lesson very enjoyable and taught in such a way that I can actually remember what I learnt. I am sure my lesson went well beyond 3 hours but Joe never rushed to finish the lesson. Since my lesson I have emailed and text Joe and he has always replied to my enquiries very obligingly. I would recommend Joe to anyone wanting to improve their skills - he truely is a professional. I will certainly be going back to Joe for more lessons! Thank you Joe!

Today I attended my 1st photography course PHOTO ONE at Ted's City store. It was a beginner course that helped me feel a lot more comfortable with ditching Auto. The instructor Joe Moreno structured the course around the group and tailored to our individual needs. Joe had a lot a knowledge and was extremely helpful ..

I did the Photo 1 Beginners class with Joe Moreno at TEDS cameras with 2 other students.
We spent about 45 mins going over the basics of modern digital cameras before heading out to take photos.
It was great! Joe is a very patient instructor with a lot of professional photography experience. He clearly enjoys teaching people his craft and responds enthusiastically to any question no matter how basic. He makes everyone feel welcome and important.
It's amazing how familiar he is with all the brands and models. I don't know how he keeps all those menu options in his head!
Thanks Joe!

Had a great camera lesson with Joe today. His knowledge and enthusiasm made for a fantastic one on one lesson. I learnt so much in a short time. Thanks Joe I look forward to trying many things that I didn't know my camera could do.

Don't go anywhere else! Joe is amazing - so knowledgeable and such a great tutor. I had a three hour private lesson with Joe last week and the only regret I have is that I didn't know about Joe long before now. I have had a couple of formal lessons with other providers in the past but no-one has helped my understanding and improved my capability and confidence anywhere near as much as Joe has done. Just by asking me a few key questions he quickly discerned how much I knew, what I wanted/needed to be able to do and how best to teach me. He tailored the session all the way through, was patient, used great analogies when explaining technical pieces and applied just the right combination of theory and practice. To top it all off he came across as a great guy - loads of personality and a great sense of humour. I really felt comfortable and was grateful for the great deal of care Joe invested in my session. Thanks so much Joe!

Hi Joe, very pleased to be have gained a position with you for the photographic Vivid 2019 shoot. Having been to your previous shoots including Vivid, I have always been able to gain some great images and some very good advice from you during the shoot. You organise it so well with the locations you choose and provide top drawer photographic advice. I am looking forward to next Monday night at Vivid again, with you.

What a awesome lesson with Dad I had! My Mum bought my Dad and I a joint private photography lesson with Joe for our birthdays and it was excellent. We both have different cameras and different generational technology familiarities (sorry Dad!) but this wasn't a problem at all. Joe gave us really great hands on tasks to build our understanding of photography from a beginner level and taught us efficient ways to use our cameras for the things we like to shoot. Really great tips to have our preset modes at the ready and excellent personalised approach. Would highly recommend. Thanks Joe!

 I had a private one-on-one lesson with Joe where we went a shot a music gig at Frankie's Pizza in the city. Overall, it was a really great evening and Joe was able to teach me a lot tailored to my level and desired outcomes. The environment was the perfect, I felt comfortable to ask questions and was able to express myself in the process. For those of you who enjoy learning one-on-one, Joe is your guy! I look forward to further sessions moving forward. Very happy student.

Went on a basic course last Saturday with instructor Joe. at TEDS cameras. Was absolutely fantastic. Will definitely book on future courses with him.


Joe Moreno is one of the most obliging blokes you could hope to meet. At 5pm on a recent Sunday afternoon I had a problem uploading [or downloading?] photos from my computer onto an USB stick. The difficulty had to be solved  as a matter of urgency because I was going overseas the next day and someone was desperately waiting on the USB stick. With some trepidation I phoned Joe who was out shopping in a supermarket. Not a good time to be interrupted but Joe was very patient and  quickly solved my problem. Many thanks Joe. I owe you a glass [or two] of good red wine. I appreciate that Joe’s followers should not take this as an open invitation to interrupt Joe’s weekends at the drop of a hat with minor problems but I had to publicly acknowledge his assistance and professionalism.

I had a private one-on-one lesson with Joe. WOW! I can't believe how much I learnt, from basic camera settings to preparing a image for editing. The lesson was amazing! Great friendly environment, felt very comfortable and didn't hesitate to ask tons of questions (which all got answered). I'll defiantly be back! And would highly recommend his one on one sessions for those who just want to know that little bit more to creating magic with their camera.

 Had a 3 hour private lesson today with Joe on my Olympus M5 Mark II. It was great! Casual, aimed at my level and SO informative. I just need to practice now and I'm looking forward to some field trips with Joe

Hi Joe,
Thanks for imparting your knowledge in the intricacies of Macro Photography. The day was hot but the photography was cool and we all came away with smiles and the knowing that our ability to enjoy our hobby had now another field to enjoy the delights of photography.

Hullo Joe, Thank you very much for the superb course this morning. I just LOVED it and learned so much. You have the knack of demystifying the photography process in a really clear and approachable way. . I could see the marked improvement in my photographs after just an hour of your tuition. Thanks to you, I'm starting to 'get it' and really looking forward to coming along to some more of your courses. Great stuff. Excellent morning photographing flowers at the Sydney Botanical Gardens- HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

 Had a really informative and interesting evening on the Olympus Night Photography Course last week with Joe. 

It was great to learn lots about shortcuts and settings on the Olympus camera and I also had fun learning about the Live Composition feature and everything it can do!

Joe is a wonderful teacher - very knowledgeable and patient enough to take the time to pass this knowledge on

I have taken part in Joe's classes before and hope to do so again ... very soon
