Photography is one of the most accessible forms of creative expression, and many of us have used cameras since we’ve been old enough to hold one in our hands. Venture Photography Workshops is here to show you how you can get the most out of your camera, by taking creative control of it and getting you started on your own image-making adventure!
All our workshops are hands-on and full of activities and shoots. You learn by doing and you’ll get plenty of opportunities to put what you have learned into practice and to refine your skills!
Owner and lead instructor Seng is a photographer based in Fremantle, Western Australia.
He is an experienced teacher and educator – having taught at high school and university, designed courses for TAFE, universities and corporations, and project managed IT and eLearning development before he decided to combine his love of photography and teaching into Venture Photography Workshops.
Seng is also involved in a range of community-based photography projects, from organising the FotoFreo 2010 Fringe Festival to running photography workshops for the likes of CanTeen, Propel Youth Arts and the Edmund Rice Institute of Social Justice.
As you can see from his photo, Seng tends to “speak with his hands”. Seng likes comics, cats and taking photographic road trips, and shoots across both Nikon and Canon.
Dashing Dave Savage is the main man who makes sure that participants are able to locate the buttons and menu items on their cameras while Seng is yacking on about f-stops and metering modes.
Dave is a very experienced photographer who is one-half of OzLightJunkies, WA’s very own light painting squad. He also shoots models (with his camera) and recently held his first seriously arty photographic exhibition at Elements Gallery in Dalkeith. Dave shoots with Nikon photographic equipment.
Gorgeous Graeme Marsh is our Bunbury-based workshops instructor, running our photography workshops in the South West with Seng and Christian. Graeme specialises in portraiture and photography of cars and motorcycles, and he’s been known to embark on epic adventures in landscape photography with Seng.
Graeme has a great deal of experience in training, including workplace coaching and mentoring and instructing taekwondo!
As a Dad with three lively, growing boys, Graeme is always happily and busily snapping them because he understands the importance and value of good family portraits. He’s a bloke who is 100% passionate about his photography and keen to share his passion with new photographers!
Graeme shoots with Canon photographic gear.
Bunbury photographer, Christian Byrt is an internationally awarded photojournalist who is currently living a quiet unassuming life in Bunbury with his family and three cats. He shoots fashion for a number of South-West agencies and is a font of information on camera equipment and photography.
Christian runs our Bunbury and South West workshops with Graeme. As you can see from his photo, Christian has great fashion sense and an infectious smile!
