Architecture Photography

Architecture Photography

Saturday 12 October
The Quarry - 11am - 2 Hours
Chris Marshall
Architectural photography can be a great way of exploring and documenting a city, whether it's your home or on holiday. Its about capturing not only the design and accurate representation of a building, but to have the shots be aesthetically pleasing to the viewer's eye. An architectural photographer makes pictures, not takes pictures.

In this session, we will be covering how to better understand Architecture photography and we'll be looking at ways to take some impressive shots and the camera settings to use.

Abstract Photography

Abstract Photography

Saturday 23 November
The Quarry - 11am - 2 Hours
Chris Marshall
Abstract photography involves capturing a subject in a way that renders it either partially or completely unrecognizable, emphasizing instead on the interplay of shapes, colors, and form.

In this workshop, we will explore the art of creating striking and thought-provoking images through the use of abstraction.

Our experienced instructor will guide you through the process of understanding and applying the principles of abstract photography, including composition, color, and texture. We will cover topics such as finding inspiration in everyday objects, experimenting with different angles and perspectives.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the event & learnt a lot about this genre of photography. Jamie's passion & enthusiasm for street photography was clearly evident & very inspiring. Jamie was able to discuss camera settings & techniques at all levels from basic through to advanced. He continually made suggestions on how to capture different images on the street with real time examples. Overall I highly recommend Jamie & the Street Photography workshop.

    Punctual and Friendly providing a relaxed start. Was very knowledgeable and had a game plan. Spent time with course members giving individual advice and guidance. Offered suggestions on camera settings and techniques. Also suggested possible photo opportunities. At this point (2 days after event) I would consider another course date. Now waiting on follow up information. Hence 4 and not 5

    After 21 years of being an aviation photographer I finally managed to photograph the Fairey Swordfish in flight. It also the first time that I'd used a tripod and gimbal combination so that I could slow the shutter speeds down enough to show propeller and rotor movement.

    Title or Location: Montforts Beach
    It was nothing but grey skies and rain for days on end, but I decided that you don't always need epic sunsets for great photos. The dull weather also allowed me to get a 20 second exposure with an ND1000 filter giving that classic wispy water look. A wide angle lens allowed me to get nice and close and emphasize the subject, being that close also meant there was some close calls with the occasional freak wave coming up to where I had my tripod and me running back up the beach to escape them

    There?s sunset and there?s sunset like this! As if Mother Nature decided that the colours were not enough and returned with these extraordinary after colours!I was a bit wavering that afternoon looking at those thick clouds building up but then a gap in those clouds made for a colour burst producing a sunset that has by far been one of the best in this year I have seen!
