This course is an immersive photography experience that re-purposes the traditional learning of camera operations with an infusion of the creative arts processes.

This 2-part workshop combines the merits of relevant technical skills with the creative and artistic insights required to create strong, effective photographic images.

Knowing the concepts of aperture, shutter speed & ISO is important, but understanding the reason behind the use of these camera tools is critical. Quality cameras provide a higher image quality, however the quality of the photographer reasoning and insight provides a richer, deeper experience that underpins meaningful and memorable images.

Good photographers understand that strong mages reflect design principles and elements. This course is a visual journey of imagery utilising compositional upskilling, through the experiences and imaginations of the masters of photography, to the inspirational imaging of award-winning photographers and their techniques.

This course will benefit the competent photographer as well as the beginner.
