SERENA PEARCE
B.AP.SC., DIP.PHOTO

I feel very privileged to be a generalist photographer shooting commercial, portraits, travel, real estate and architectural photographer in and around my home town of Perth, Western Australia. From small beginnings I have established a business that is “snow balling” by the minute due to an artistic flair, attention to detail and a passion for what I do that means that work is pleasure!

Having grown up in an “arty” environment with a focus on travel, architecture, the arts, culture and people, I was destined to follow a creative & diverse career path. The past 35 years has seen me go from physiotherapy to designing & manufacturing children’s clothing to a successful photography business which includes teaching others the tricks of the trade.

Combined with my love of travel to far-off destinations including New York, India, Morocco, Namibia, Egypt, Cuba, Vietnam, Turkey, Italy, Spain, France, Japan & Persia photography has allowed me to experience the diversity of the world and its people.

Andrew and I have had the pleasure of teaching photography to many students over many years and now we look forward to bringing our combined experience, creativity, enthusiasm and passion to you in our Online Photography Courses.

ANDREW THOMASSON
BSc.

Maybe my love for photography came as a young boy looking at my father's amazing images of his RAF WW2 squadrons posting in Quetta with the snow capped Himalayas behind. I went on to trek all the major Himalaya treks including a 13 week adventure from London to Kathmandu on a double decker bus by my 21st birthday. Many moons later I now live in fabulous Australia in Paddington, NSW and am the lucky father of 4 girls!

Blending my profession as a photographer with travel, adventure, architecture, weddings & commercial has been a dream ride. Shooting some of the most stunning locations & subjects in the world both as a photography tour leader for World Expeditions and for my own company Focus 10 has been a continual learning curve - especially with the new digital technologies including smartphones & drones.

Serena and I have been teaching travel, beginners, advanced, corporate, lifestyle, real estate, weddings, studio, portrait, smartphone & wildlife photography courses around Australia for many years now. We bring to the table this expertise. We are exuberant about what we do and are delighted to share this huge course in everything digital with you and others around the world.

Cheers!

Since the course I've been busy setting up my business. I have 3 new agencies on board since the course. Getting involved with social media and building a website. Much of this has come about due to your valuable training.

- John Pires, Property Images

Highly recommend Photography Space. I’ve completed their Real Estate & Architecture Photography course. It is very comprehensive & covers all aspects plus Andrew & Serena were so approachable & happy to answer any of my queries. Photography Space Day courses are a lot of fun too and I’ve learnt so much and my photography skills have increased after every one I’ve attended.

- Samantha Fischer, Photographer

Andrew & Serena were engaging, helpful and really know their stuff. This course covers all the crucial points of photography for Real Estate, Architecture and Interiors. As an already experienced Architectural Photographer I believe it's important to keep up to date with all the most recent skills and ideas available. I found the 15 assignments to be well structured and really helpful and enjoyed being able to do this in my own time. I cannot recommend this course highly enough.

- Sophie Tomaras, Capital Image

I am loving the course! You two have certainly put together a concise, factual, insightful and helpful program.

- Beth Baker, Off Pen Photography, Fine Art Photographer

Andrew and Serena’s online real estate photography course has been a perfect platform for me to start a part time business. As a busy working Mum, I needed a course that I could complete in my own time but also had ongoing support and mentoring in order to further my knowledge and skills. This course fitted the bill perfectly! The feedback I received from Andrew and Serena through the course, as well as the 15 different assignments, allowed me to take my photography to the next level. However it was the business mentoring in particular which has been invaluable in launching my own real estate photography business. Andrew and Serena have been amazingly generous with their time answering all my questions and giving me practical advice. I would highly recommend this course for anyone wanting to break into the real estate photography area.

- Victoria Stewart , VSM Photography

Hi Andrew and Serena. Just wanted to say thank you for the fantastic course. It has given me a much better idea of where I need to be in regards to making a go of this wonderful profession. Cheers for sending through the Certificate of Completion and I look forward to doing more training with Focus 10 & Code Lime Photography in the future. Thanks again.

- Dan Thompson

I have just completed the two day Real Estate & Architectural Photography course and it was worth every penny. Serena is a wealth of knowledge and had loads of tips and tricks to make my workflow much more efficient. I have learnt so much which has given me the confidence to take my business to the next level. I highly recommend for anyone wanting to get into this industry. Thank you Serena!

- Katherine Davenport, Katherine Davenport Photography, Owner

A huge thanks to Serena. After we sent Steele, one of our junior photographers to Serena for training, she generously shared her knowledge and experience and as a result Steele came away with the ability to produce magazine style photo shoots. He is pumped and so are we. Thanks again Serena.

- John Kemsley, Platinum Realty Group, Managing Director

I think God or my mum sent you from heaven to me ... probably mum - she was a great business woman with a great eye, so is my sister, who thinks you are awesome as well

- Brydie McKee, Art deFence, Owner

Serena Pearce from Code Lime Photography consistently captures the energy and feel of our designs. Her visual literacy, highly professional manner and flexibility to accommodate us at short notice play a big part in marketing our architectural work in both magazines and the media. The quality and creativity of Serena's photography is surpassed only by her ability to listen to her clients and capture the perfect pictures in response to their needs. Serena’s eye for the smallest of details helps reflect mood and ambiance, whether it’s capturing the overall feel in a wide angle shot or zeroing in on a particular feature. I am sure coming from a family of architects (both her husband and daughter are architects) has given her an appreciation of the finer subtleties of architectural photography. I would highly recommend her to anyone!

- Craig Steere , Craig Steere Architects, Owner & Director

Like her amazing real estate photographs Serena is engaging and creative. Her meticulous attention to detail, reliability, professionalism and friendly approach has enabled me to sell around $ 100 -120 Million dollars worth of property over the past 5 years. Our clients are always amazed at how fantastic their properties look with Serena’s photos and in a market where photographs are the number one marketing tool, being able to understand light, shadows and composition makes her a real artist not just a photographer - her images enable us to stand out from the crowd.

- Cameron McGregor, Space Realty

A great real estate course. I learnt so much in one day. More that a 2 month course I did recently in Paddington! Thank you so much for your advice on about which lens to get, greatly appreciate your time and effort!

- Melanie Davies

I recently completed the Real Estate & Architecture Photography course. I learnt so much and found Serena & Andrew engaging tutors, very easy to learn from, knowledgable and willing to share their knowledge! The course was so enjoyable and the assignments made it very hands on. The detailed notes have been brilliant to refer back to. I highly recommend this course for anyone chasing more insight into Architecture and Real Estate Photography.

- Stacey Mann

I truly had a fantastic, inspiring and motivating day with Serena & Andrew in the Swan Valley this weekend. The course they ran was very informative and just what I needed to re-ignite my passion for photography. We were not bogged down with taking notes, instead the day was very relaxed and we were provided with extensive notes after the course and the option of having our images critiqued. I found it to be great value for money, considering we had two instructors and both with different training styles. I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to further themselves as a photographer.

- Kylie Richardson

Hi Andrew & Serena. Well I can’t believe it’s already been over a week since I have come home from Sydney! And what a week that has been.... We hit the ground running ...Last week end we went to some display homes to take some shots for our advertising and ended up with 2 paying jobs. 2 of our photos made the property guide this week. Happy me J. Our elevated shots are a huge hit in Hervey Bay, I have attached one example for you to have a look at. Thank you for making our 2 day course so enjoyable, I have come home with a lot more confidence. My photos have improved 100%.

- Freddie Kitson

Just spent the day at Serena & Andrew’s real estate photography course. Learnt heaps and so much packed into the day. Would recommend this course to any budding real estate photographers. Serena & Andrew are great teachers and it’s such a friendly atmosphere with plenty of one on one time. Thank you!

- Audra De Pina

Like her amazing photographs, Serena is engaging and generous. The real estate photography course last week was excellent. Serena took the time to find out what I wanted to get out of the course, I learned lots and had a great time. Just the right mix of creative and technical information and all hands-on learning. I now know what all those buttons on the camera do! Thanks Serena for a great day - I would recommend your courses to anyone with an interest in photography. Cheers.

- Dellys Lynch

A fun and relaxed day packed full of useful information and industry tips. Highly recommended.
