1 Day Travel Photography Workshop - Sydney
All of our courses are conducted by Andy Piggott a professional travel photographer with years of experience, a passion for photography and a fun approach to teaching. The class is highly practical hands-on learning. The small group size assures lots of personal attention.
This one day travel photography course starts with the absolute basics and so is suitable for ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS as well as those that already know some of the fundamentals of photography. You will learn by doing and by the end of the day you will know how to capture a wide range of subjects.
We will experiment with shutter speeds to capture movement; fast speeds to 'freeze' , slow speeds to produce 'creamy' flowing water. You will learn how to throw backgrounds in and out of focus for appealing portraits and landscapes with a feeling of depth.
There are loads of tips on shooting architecture, 'macro' and 'street' photography plus advice on what equipment to take and what to leave behind.
Do this one day course and capture the excitement of you travels. Create beautiful travel photographs not just holiday snaps!
We have FREE Loan Cameras - just request one on the booking form.
Level: Total BEGINNERS / Anyone wanting refresher or more practice
Duration: 1 Day (6 Hours approx)
Cost: $195 (includes "Coffee & Cake Break" )
I really learned a lot. I had had my camera for five years and getting good photos was always a bit 'hit and miss' but after the lesson, and with a bit of ongoing practise, I am getting consistently better photographs. As this workshop was a gift from my wife, it was an excellent gift indeed!
A very enjoyable day Andy is on the job & a great teacher to be around.
Di has been very helpful on the booking and follow up front, thank you. It was an enjoyable day and I look forward to putting it into practice... Andy you have a great sense of humour which is refreshing amongst all the terminology and new information that we are so keenly trying to remember in a short time frame. Great tips and suggestions for future purchases and very good knowledge of camera's being used. Thank you for your help.
I found the class excellent for my needs as a beginner with a little bit of theoretical knowledge but no experience in using a DSLR camera. I liked the emphasis on practical application, I thought that Andy was an excellent and considerate teacher and all in all I think that the class was extremely good value for money.
Hi Andy, many thanks for what was a very enjoyable and informative day. You have the talent to simplify the difficult for the novice. Learnt so much that I am now excited about my camera and photography. I can only highly recommend this workshop if you are interested in taking good quality photographs.
