Private Photography Workshop

This workshop is suitable to anyone from beginners to semi professional photographers. We will work together to design personalised photography lessons based on your level of knowledge, the type of equipment that you own and your goals.

You may be looking to understand all the dials and buttons on your camera; maybe you want to start shooting in manual mode or perhaps just learn to take better photos of your family.

If you don't have time for a lenghty photography course or prefer the personalised learning experience then private photography lessons are ideal for you. We will agree on a date that is most convenient to you. Our initial workshops are always conducted in our studio, but additional lessons can be held anywhere in Sydney metro area. That way you get to shoot exactly what you want under a watchful eye of an experienced photographer.

If you are a beginner, we recommend a 3 hours session to absorb the fundamentals.

Private Family Photography Workshop

This workshop is suitable to anyone who wishes to take family or children pictures with their own digital SLR camera.

Many of you bought an expensive digital SLR camera to take great pictures of your children as they grow. If you just use the camera in fully auto mode, you can never create those great images.They will look not much better than snapshots taken with a smart phone.

When you hire us to take pictures of your family we will arrive with $20K worth of camera gear, but we can also show you how to take good pictures with cheaper cameras. Camera gear is just one factor in family photography. Understanding light, composition, choice of lenses plays a huge part in photography.

In a private family photography workshop, we will teach you how to create images that you will be very happy with. The best thing however is that next time you will be able to take these pictures yourself, and this workshop will cost you less than a typical family photography session with a professional photographer.
