Photography workshops


“Plan, shoot and polish”

Learn how to build your confidence and take better photos, by both understanding your camera more and thinking through what you want to achieve. Through patient and simple explanations, I can help you conquer the settings on your camera, and then refine your digital images in Lightroom to take your photography to the next level.

The half day photography workshops are flexible to your requirements, skill level and interests. There is nothing worse than not getting the chance to ask your questions when you are itching to learn! A maximum of four people per workshop will ensure each person receives individual guidance and support. Topics include:  

  • Familiarising yourself with your camera and getting the best out of it

  • Understanding your gear and options available (prime or zoom lens, extenders, flash etc)

  • Planning your shots, composition, lighting

  • Field craft

  • Post processing in Lightroom.

Spend time in the field, learning and practicing your craft, then finish by processing an image to a high quality, ready to print or share online. You will leave the workshop with photos you’re proud of and go home with more confidence to get out shooting more.

Cost: $150 per person for a 4 hour workshop (including morning or afternoon tea), Patchewollock, VIC.

I also welcome enquiries about group discounts or full day workshops, alternative locations, special outings for spotlighting tours or specific target birds.  

My speciality is bird photography, but I’m happy to cater for other interests such as night photography, landscapes and macro.
