Summer Workshops – 1920’s with Emily

Recently I had a whole weekend of 1920’s inspired shoots, just a coincidence, but still so much fun. I ran a workshop with Emily, one that had been postponed since March 2020, thanks to you know who! Finally we managed to get it done. It was a small group in between lockdowns, but glad to…

Summer Workshops – Creative Portraits

It felt so good, to be able to get back to what I love…teaching photography. I recently taught back to back Still Life and then I got back to back creative portraits. This workshop was actually sold out months ago…twice. Damn Covid stopped it. So glad I finally was able to run it for these…

Summer Workshops – Still Life

I recently ran my first Still Life workshop in quite a while, it was lovely to get back to basics. Initially, I thought it may not go ahead, due to poor bookings, but a week before the class it was full with a waitlist, funny how things work out. One of the ladies (and this…

Workshops – The Potterage

A little while back I arranged a workshop with ten students at the iconic Potterage in the Victorian Dandenong Ranges.  A beautiful French Provincial and Tuscan Villa inspired house, full of vintage wares and antiques, from the floors, the French doors and windows to the furniture. A Lifestyle or still life photographers dream. It was…

In the Studio – Dark and Moody Workshop

Every year I host this workshop at least 2-3 times, it never seems to fail. I have other new ventures and offerings this year, but I thought I would start off with the same old D&M Workshop. I set everything up pretty much the same, but I like to offer different subjects and change things…
