The Butterbomb Workshop
is an intimate workshop and shoot experience for all participants – hence, we are limiting the number of participants to 8. This workshop includes a 2-hour hands-on shoot with a family at a selection of locations in Fremantle, where you’ll have the opportunity to shoot under the guidance of Tristan and Seng, build your portfolio images and gain field experience in location use and lighting!

About Butterbomb and Tristan Cameron

The Butterbomb Family


Butterbomb’s slogan is “We’re big kids with cameras” and Butterbomb’s Tristan Cameron is a big kid who loves being a photographer. With wife, Monika, Tristan has developed and run a very successful family and lifestyle photography business, shooting Western Australian kids and their families for many years. Butterbomb style is fun, giggles, laughter and being crazy as only kids can be! As Tristan and Monika says: “We believe it is the quirks and idiosyncrasies that make our children who they are, so Butterbomb’s photography isn’t about sitting pretty in Sunday’s best and smiling at strangers. It is about a family spending a little time together creating the memories that last a long time.”
