For all you budding landscape photographers, this is a weekend workshop not to be missed!

Join Greg Perry, David Nicholls and Seng Mah for a weekend workshop dedicated to the art and techniques of landscape photography.

With the magnificent coastal vistas of the Western Australian South West for inspiration, we will be exploring the landscape with the view of developing your creative skills in photographing landscapes.

Learn how to expose, compose and shoot the light at five unique locations in the South West:

  1. Shelley Cove at Bunker Bay (dawn)
  2. Sugarloaf Rock (morning)
  3. Boranup Forest (afternoon)
  4. Wyadup Rocks/Injidup Beach and the coastal waterfall (late afternoon)
  5. Canal Rocks (sunrise)

Find out what accessories you need to photograph landscapes and learn how to use them effectively. A session dedicated to post-processing with Photoshop will give you the skills and knowledge to transform your captured images into a works of art. Enjoy the camaraderie with a group of photographers — there’ll be plenty of laughs and learning opportunities!
