• Beginners class studio

    $240.00

    We’ve heard you

    You’re ready to get back in to the studio for face to face learning and we can’t wait to welcome you back.

    Our first beginners learn how to photograph studio class for 2022 is finally up and ready to take bookings, very limited bookings however, to keep us all safe. (Maximum class size: 6)

    Our beginners class is for the absolute beginner – yes, those who are currently using their camera on AUTO – let’s move you off that setting and really get your taking the photograph you see.

    Most beginner photography classes and even your cameras user manual, start talking about aperture and shutter within the first few pages/lesson

    Not ours. We start you where you need to start to learn about photography, at the very beginning. Once you’ve locked down those skills, then you can take your photography to the next level, either with us or anywhere because now you’ll have the basics.

    Beginners start:

    May

    Sunday 15, 22, 29
    2 – 3.15pm

    PLUS bonus outdoor workshop at Rosebud Pier
    Sunday 29th May
    4.30 – 6pm

    $240 (total)

    **PLEASE NOTE: THIS WORKSHOP IS NON REFUNDABLE/NON TRANSFERABLE IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO ATTEND**

    (If you’re not ready to do face to face learning, or you would prefer to our beginners online, we have that option for you too)

  • Beginners ONLINE course

    $590.00

    Our most popular photography class – Beginners Learn How To Photograph course – is now online!

    • Are you ready to move off AUTO?
    • Are you ready to take the photograph you SEE and not the one you end up with?

    Did you know that AUTO is probably the worst setting to put your camera on?

    • You don’t have to use MANUAL to get great photos
    • You don’t have to know a much technical stuff to take a great photo
    • Did you know that YOU have control of two of the most important elements needed to take a great photo?

     

    I’ve been photographing professionally for over 35yrs and I knew NOTHING technical in the beginning, so I KNOW you can take a great photo with limited technical stuff – people take great photos, not cameras

    This course WILL make sense to you and I will be there to help step you through each module.

    You will receive weekly PDF instructionals, weekly instructional videos, weekly tasks that will help you understand the basics of what a great photo is and how to take one.

    You will receive weekly LIVE google meets with me and other students in the course

    You will be part of a dedicated facebook group to upload your photos, receive GENTLE and encouraging feedback and to give feedback, to get support from others in your group

    You WILL take better photos

    This course will make sense to you

    There is no other course like this one

    This course DOESN’T assume you already know something or anything about photography – even your cameras user manual confuses you!!

    We start you at the very beginning, in a way no other class (or your users manual) does

  • Personalised Photography Training (PPT)

    $240.00

    We’ve found over time that when you are ready to take your photography beyond the beginner level, that the ‘one size fits all’ training approach doesn’t suit everyone, and in fact, can be intimidating for some of you who feel like your knowledge (or lack of it) might hold up others.

    That’s why decided to offer Personalise Photography Training – it’s a mouthful isn’t it? So let’s call it PPT.

    The PPT is specifically designed for you and YOU only.
    You decide what you want to learn and we design a learning plan for you.

    We can take you wherever you want to go in your photography journey.

    We’ll still be running our popular 2hr outdoor workshops so you can still get together and learn in a group setting, mastering all skills we offer in the field, like Shooting under a full moon, Mastering looking for light, Shooting a nightscape, heading off to Melbourne to photograph our beautiful, world class city.

    We will still run our Beginners photography class as a group, face to face in our studio in Rosebud or if you prefer our Beginners online course

    Our PPT sessions will look like this:

    • 2 hours
    • Tailored to you and for you
    • Colour handouts
    • Aimed at taking your photography to the next level
    • Held at our Rosebud Studio
    • You tell us what you want to learn, where you want to go in your photography journey, and we’ll tailor a learning plan for you

    $240
