Just announced – Sydney Harbour Photo WalkJune 19th, 2017

When I worked for Destination NSW, I was assigned to shoot Sydney Harbour from as many angles as possible. I literally spent weeks working out the best spots to shoot from.

It’s been an honour to have had the opportunity to do this and I would like to share some of those beautiful locations with you and take you on a Photo Walk of Sydney Harbour.

Here is how the Photo Walk will run:

• 4.00 PM – 4.05 PM: Meet and greet.

• 4.05 PM – 4.15 PM: Walk to the first location in preparation for an iconic harbour sunset shoot.

• 4.15PM – 5.00 PM: Sunset shoot with me spending time with everyone of you to help with the technical and compositional side of photography. I will make sure that everyone walks away with amazing photographs of Sydney Harbour.

• 5.00 PM – 5.20 PM: Another stop to shoot the Blue Hour over the Harbour.

• 5.20 PM – 5.45 PM: Third stop for a night shoot of the city. Potential to shoot star trails if it’s clear!

• 5.45 – 6.00 PM: Walk back and farewell with more time to answer questions.

We will meet at 4.00 PM at the bottom steps of the Harbour Bridge at Milsons Point.

There is ample ticketed parking available around Milsons Point or arrive by train (train stop – you guessed it – Milsons Point).

Cost: Special price for Meetup members of just $69 per person! Please RSVP as places are strictly limited.

As with all my workshops, I offer a 100% money back guarantee if you feel like you did not get enough value out of the workshop. No questions asked 🙂

Equipment to bring:

• Camera (SLR, Point and shoot or Mobile Phone)

• Tripod if you have one

• Comfy shoes and weather-appropriate clothing

We will meet at 6am at the corner of The Corso and North Steyne in Manly.

There is ample parking available at the beach and it is free at that time of day.

The sun is starting to rise later!January 22nd, 2015

The sun is finally starting to rise a bit later every day (about 1 minute per day) so it’s getting easier to get out there and shoot dawn’s beautiful colours.

I am organising my next Landscape Photography workshop for 28/29 March.

Please click this link for details.

From experience, this workshop sells out extremely fast, so if you would like to join, please contact me asap

Here is some feedback of my last workshop:

“As a beginner interested in landscape photography I found this workshop excellent. Kajo explained all the technical aspects clearly, providing examples that helped with my understanding. On location Kajo spent time further explaining the different settings and their importance in landscape photography. The group were all very friendly & down to earth & very willing to share their own experience & knowledge. Highly recommend!”, Sonja W.

“Very enjoyable workshop. Perhaps of more benefit to beginners but still plenty to learn for the intermediate. Excellent, knowledgeable tutor. Thanks Kajo!”, Neil S.

“Superb class Kajo. I really enjoyed myself with great group of people. Looking forward to your editing class.”, Paul C.

 

Update: There are only 4 spaces left in this workshop!
