WHAT WE’LL DO:

Announcing: Special Landscape Photography Weekend Workshop with NiSi Filters

Some very exciting news! Our Sponsor NiSi has decided to join us on this next full weekend photography workshop! You will have unlimited access to NiSi filters during the on-location shoots and there will also be a special NiSi filter presentation as part of my theory to help you understand the power of using filters in your landscape images!

Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to try out these amazing filters and improve your photography under the experienced tuition of an internationally award-winning landscape photographer!

If you are new to photography, and simply don’t know where to start your photography adventure, this workshop is for you.

If you are more intermediate, but want to take your photography to the next level, this workshop is for you.

If you are a professional looking to further your existing knowledge about composition and shoot alongside an award-winning photographer – you guessed it – this workshop is for you too!

This is a weekend jam packed with great photography theory covering the absolute basics, all the way to advanced topics, then on to compositional tricks, gear advice, application of filters, and much more.

To top it off I will also give you an overview of the post-processing workflow (in Lightroom and Photoshop) if there is enough time.

We then go on-location and apply what we have learned during a sunset session, shooting all the way until dark.
I will be right by your side, helping you with the technicals and compositional side of photography. A NiSi representative will also be there to help you with your filters!

The next day we go back to the same location shooting sunrise. You will notice how much your photography will have improved from the previous night and the aha moments are literally audible.

I will take you to a location which rarely other photographers venture to and which is my personal favourite of all Sydney Seascape locations! With a bit of luck we will get some incredible dawn colours and capture this special place in all its glory!

SCHEDULE:

Here is how the workshop will run in detail:
Session 1 (Saturday, 11am – 4pm):

Second on-location shooting. You get a second chance to apply what you have learned the evening before at the dawn shoot.
