Melbourne Photographic Workshops

After 20 years photographing and publishing imagery of people I have decided to share my experience and passion in an ongoing workshop series. They are run in a very relaxed and non pressuring format and are open to people of all levels of experience.

The most recurring theme is about relationship and connecting with people with as little protective walls as possible. To me photography is like intimacy where photographer and subject connect at a very deep level. If one or both are not humble and free the connection will not in my opinion create the most empowering image.

Whilst my career has featured mostly aesthetically beautiful people I believe my success has been largely due to the energy of my images. I have always favored truth over suggestion and much of what is covered at these events focuses on achieving this. I believe the most powerful image is one that exudes style, passion and grace.

I also believe that everything including architecture, automobiles and people have angles that are more flattering than others. Therefore no matter what my subject may be I am always looking to present the best aesthetic angles in my photograph. Once again the workshops include much discussion and demonstration with regards to this skill set.

Whilst I have not been professionally trained the workshops do cover many technical aspects. Lighting, camera settings and framing are all covered and discussed at length. Further to this much attention to detail in regards to wardrobe, location and shot concept is covered.

In general I believe a photographer has an enormous opportunity to inspire others with their work. To this end these workshops are very passionate about helping people to create images of high impact and passion.

Cost for the model workshops is between$70-120pp with participants limited to between 4-6 people. Also have a series of portrait workshops at $50 per head.These workshops can be found on the following link -

I also run private workshops with less participants that can be accessed either by contacting me direct or registering on the mailing list from this website.
