About my outdoor photography workshops


Have you suddenly found a love of photography, but it frustrates you because you don't seem to be getting anywhere with it?

Do you feel the quality of your outdoor photography lacks that certain "WOW" factor?

Or would you just like some help with your camera?

"MOBILE PHONES AND TABLETS INCLUDED"

I can also help if you just want to know the best sites for the type of photography you have in mind.

Although I am now retired, I still very much enjoy taking out locals and visitors alike, in order to help them improve either their outdoor holiday photos or just their outdoor photography in general.

And, as I am retired, the workshops I have been offering since 2010, are based at a very low-cost to help those who are trying to keep their budget as low as possible, whilst visiting the quiet little fishing village, Tin Can Bay, Australia. Why not check out the cost by sending me a message via the contact form provided. 
One thing I can say is that I always enjoy the positive comments given by all participants, as they discover new ground, or their photography is taken to the next level.

Some common, easily solvable problems might include: fuzzy, out-of-focus photos or subjects coming out too dark?

The first hour of the 3-hour workshop session will mainly be based on learning the pros and cons of natural outdoor lighting and how best you can use and manipulate it to your advantage in your outdoor photography.

The other is learning how to build a truly great "photo composition", by utilising special composition tools that have been handed down to photographers today from classic artists of days gone by.

Also discussed will be the benefits of going manual, or at least semi-manual with the aperture, shutter speed, and ISO settings of your camera - it is easier than you think!"

For reference, I will provide some easy reading sheets, that you can take home with you on the subjects you are having trouble with or just want to know more about.

Other things can be discussed as time permits.
Being aware, of course, that although all cameras are just designed to simply take pictures, their operations and functions can differ greatly from brand to brand. So, if you also require assistance with your camera, I suggest that you please remember to bring its operator's manual with you.

It would certainly help, however, but not essential if you have a good prior knowledge of the functions of your camera's external buttons and switches.
Including the use of your lenses and other camera accessories.

The other couple of hours will be filled by a walk-around photoshoot and covering that which was discussed earlier.

On a personal note, please wear appropriate footwear as the walk-around photo shoot may include areas where the ground is a bit boggy. Also, remember the hat and personal insect repellent.
And yes, if the weather on the day looks a little unfavorable, there is always a plan B.

Even if it is just a question or two - thank you!
