About This Workshop

Spend 2 days with me on the unique and stunning Kangaroo Island and I will introduce you too a couple of favourite spots of mine for a day of discussion and photography.

As this trip is over 2 days our start time on day 1 is 10.00am until after sunset which is quite late due to daylight saving so we will grab lunch somewhere before our sunset shoot and then day 2 start time is 8.30am to around 1.00pm for post production. 

On day 2 from 8.30am we head into the classroom for a day of post production learning to make your images shine and finishing with a critique session and finishing around 1.30pm. This exclusive workshop offers a small group environment which allows plenty of one on one time for each person and the capacity to go home with a new way of looking at things and some new skills in tow. See how I use light in the field to manipulate my subjects to make them stand out. Morning tea included.
