Photo Walks and Training

We don't offer the one course fits all approach to learning photography. We, instead, listen to you to understand what you know and what you want to get out of a Photo Walk & Talk or from training. We want you to learn something new, be it just to understand your camera better and to use some new features, right through to be a manual everything nerd. We will help you take control of your camera with confidence, having to knowledge to get the shots you want.

While we don't mind what camera you shoot with, be it a mobile phone, a digital or a film camera, we aim to discuss the fundimentals of what makes a good photo and hopefully make fun.

Wollombi Film Photography Afternoon

Two events, being on the 20th and 22nd of April

Up in the Hunter Valley is the historic town of Wollombi. This very picturesque town affords ample opportunity to photographers, and I have been visiting the area for years to do just that. Now, I am excited to be able to share my insights to photography, with an opportunity to explore and photograph the town.

Cupid's arrow

The event is an afternoon photography walk around on one of the local properties and the town, itself. The event starts with some lunch at 12:00, then we will have a introduction to Black & White film photography, how I approach photographing both people and landscapes and then we head out to photograph around the area. It will run until 4:30, where you can regroup at the local pub or head back home.

Rocking horse

Regardless if you have a film camera or a digital one, why not join us for both lunch, or just the photographic walk in Wollombi. Don’t have a film camera? No problem, as you will still get a lot out of the afternoon. The aim is to be a relaxed way to discuss photography in general and to talk shop about my favourite film types. I don’t expect you to be a film nerd, but if you are, all the better to share what you know as well.
