How to enrol

 Robin Riddle

You don't know, what you don't yet know!

If you do something and want to be best in field at it, you do whatever you can to make that happen. What I learned at TAFE is 'you don't know what you don't know'. People sometimes tend to think it's possible to be a photographer and just wing it, but there is so much to learn.
