Want to learn how to take amazing landscape photos and have fun doing it?
I host landscape photography workshops and tours throughout New Zealand at epic locations partnering with Sony NZ as a Digital Imaging Advocate.
This means you'll have the chance to try out all the latest Sony cameras and lenses during the photography course. The workshops are also sponsored by KASE Filters, so you can try out world-class neutral density filters to create amazing images.
My photography workshops are always jam-packed with fun and learning! I'll teach you how to improve your composition, master your camera's settings and learn how using filters will enhance the images you capture. You'll also discover easy Lightroom techniques to turn your original RAW files into stunning landscape images.
I also host interactive online courses covering a range of photography topics with step-by-step, easy to understand visual learning you can complete at your own pace.
