Have you been seeing all the amazing photos of the Milky Way appearing in your newsfeed and wondered if you could shoot these images yourself?
Perhaps you have tried it already and would like to know how to take these images to the next level.
If you have, you will find my Weekend workshop just what you are looking for. A comfortable relaxed environment where you can learn about Nightscape photography with a small group of like-minded people. Located a few hour's drive north of Sydney in the country town of Gresford, beautiful green rolling hills with some amazing dark skies make this an ideal location to learn Nightscape Photography. The property has 6 separate bedrooms making a maximum of only 5 attendees at each workshop and you each have a private room. Couples are welcome as several rooms can cater to them. Other amenities on site are a games room, a Pool and Spa, and some amazing local wildlife. Breakfast and Dinner are provided in the package
The workshop covers all aspects of Nightscape Photography. You will learn how to focus, how to calculate the best exposure times, how to compose in the dark, and how to shoot a star trail. Along the way, you can learn a little about the night sky. We spend 2 nights under the dark skies on the property so plenty of time for shooting. The small number of attendees means you have plenty of private time with me to answer your questions. During the day you will learn how to process your RAW images. Don't worry if you haven't done it, I will show you from scratch. I even explain how you can use the techniques on your normal landscape images. It's not all work though, you will have time to relax and the property offers some fantastic amenities, Pool, Spa, games room, and some amazing local wildlife.
I love what I do and I want my attendees to learn and have a great time. I reinvest in the workshops constantly, collecting gear that attendees may use. I have several lenses for Nikon, Canon, and Sony for you to borrow, Timer remotes for shooting star trails, and Battery charges for most brands, and I have started to purchase tracking mounts to take your nightscape photography even further.
These workshops are a unique opportunity to learn about nightscape photography and Astronomy from one of Australia’s leading amateur astronomers.
