If you like to have more of a bespoke experience a private workshop is a great way to do a photography workshop. It allows us to tailor the entire trip to your specifications, from your skill and what you want to learn to your interest and what you’d like to see.
Multi day workshops can be organised. These include travel and can include pickup and drop-off for those that are travelling internationally, location dependant. We can help organise accomodation as well, there are great airbnbs across the state which gives us a great base to be able to get in some editing workshops during the trip as well, as well as being flexible with the itinerary to be able to follow the weather.
If you are interested in mountains, oceans, waterfalls or astro, we are lucky to have options for all of these and more close to us here in Western Victoria. There are very few types of landscape photography that are not achieveable here in our Southern State.
No matter what your current skill level is there will always be something to learn. Whether you have just started out and are picking up a camera for the first time to being a seasoned photographer and looking for new techniques a workshop can be tailored to you. If you have a passion for landscape photography then you’ll have an experience to remember.
We will help you to understand the controls of your camera so that you can have the confidence to use it well.
The locations we will visit are picked specifically to suit a sunset and get the best photography possible.
You’ll be able to walk away from the workshop with your own sunset photography.
After picking up a camera in 2014 when moving to Australia it soon became apparent that it was more than just a hobby.
Self taught through the years I realised that landscape photography was what drove me to take photos. The thrill of being in nature, discovering sometime unknown locations and capturing it in a way that can last forever.
This grew into a passion to teach via photography workshops so that others can experience the same landscapes that are all around us whilst learning to use a camera.
Not at all. The workshops will go through everything you need to know to use your camera to take photos.
For those of you that do have experience and want to further your skills we can delve into more advanced shooting techniques.
Bring your camera, lenses and tripod. Ideally you will have a wide angle lens (16-35) and a telephoto (70-200).
I do not use filters and like to travel light so my gear is kept to a minimum. I can show you how to get the most out of your camera without the need for expensive accessories.
Prepare for the weather as it can often change quickly in Ballarat. Waterproof jackets, hats and gloves are advisable. Sun protection is also worthwhile bringing.
When the sun does go down the temperature drops pretty quickly so have something warm.
Even if the weather is not perfect the workshop will still go ahead. A clear sky is not always the best possibility for a photo. If there is some cloud, mist or a bit of rain, some added atmosphere can almost be a bonus to the photography and we will learn how to use that to your advantage.
