Come and join us for a weekend of photography in beautiful Balingup, learning, seeing and shooting great images! This weekend workshop will make the most of brilliant colours of Autumn in Balingup as we shoot landscapes, portraits and macro photography amongst the burnished gold, reds, oranges and yellows of the autumn foliage.
Whether you’re a beginner or a little bit more experienced, you love the workshop sessions we have in store for you – you’ll explore everything photographic — from looking for the best light for landscapes, getting up close and personal with macro photography, night photography and natural light outdoor portraiture — all in the beautiful surrounds of Balingup.
Balingup is one of the hidden gems of the WA South West. Surrounded by undulating green hills and tranquil vales, you will marvel at the amazing views and photo opportunities that this location has to offer. The workshops take place at Balingup Heights, the highest point in Balingup and affords majestic vistas of the surrounding countryside. This means misty mornings, gorgeous sunset hues and time to explore the forests, orchards and trails on the property with your camera.
Accommodation will be at the beautifully appointed Balingup Heights Hilltop Forest Cottages. Owners Brian and Deb Vanellen have offered rooms at very reasonable prices, starting at $180 for two nights (see below for more information). The workshop will run out of Gumnut Cottage, which will serve as our Workshop Central for the weekend, where we can all hang out in-between shoots to review our images and talk photography.
