Master your Camera with International Award Winning Landscape Photographers

If you just bought yourself a nice new camera, I can hear you think: ‘what on earth do I need to do with all those buttons?’ Don’t worry, you’re not the only one!

We will help you understand the basics of photography in a step-by-step way, so you can take full control of all those buttons! It will be no longer the camera who decides how your photo will turn out, but you telling the camera exactly how you want your photo to look!

In this course we will teach you all you want to know about photography, using our years of experience of being an award winning professional landscape & portrait photography. As example of the subjects we discuss, we will show you our own photos and discuss. We will also tell you stories about our photography in Australia and many other countries, and teach you everything we came to know about photography over the last 30 years. In this way you will improve your photography skills so much faster than just learning the theory. Oh, and it creates a fun and informal setting!

Why you should come on our Melbourne Beginner Photography Course
Melbourne is one of the most exciting and diverse capitals in the world. This makes it an ideal location for photography. There is so much to see and photograph in Melbourne that you can spend a lifetime photographing it. In this capital of different cultures and traditions, you will realise why Melbourne is such a huge draw for photographers.

Who better to guide you around Melbourne than our very own long-term award-winning professional photographers George Triantafillou and assistant Karolin Schild. Both from Melbourne and can take you to those unique spots that are not on the brochures. Your days will cover a wide range of scenarios. There will be challenging light conditions, and settings to master with . By the time you arrive back home, you will have a better knowledge of photography plus some amazing photos you are proud of hanging on you very own wall!

What to expect on the day?
Our courses start at the basics. We look at your camera in a physical way to learn to understand all the abbreviations, buttons, etc. How does your camera work? Why do you need (or do not need) different lenses?

Then we will look at the first practical steps: aperture, shutter speed, iso value, exposure compensation. What does this mean? How do you use and control it? And how do you use it to unlock endless creativity?

Now it’s time to get off auto, and move to more creative camera settings: you are in control of your camera now! Next up are subjects like composition, direction of light, white balance, the histogram and more.

To finish off we will play around with the creative options we came to know during the course.
