Our 2019 Workshop is done, and it was AWESOME!!!

Here is what our first ever workshop looked like
We have been talking, planning and dreaming about running the exact workshop that we wish had existed when we first started. A hands-on all inclusive course that covers all of the fundamentals of wedding photography, from business and marketing to creative shooting techniques and post production workflow. Most importantly we want to show you how we learn about our clients, have fun with them during their big day, and then deliver a final product that is even better than they expected!
To get the most out of the time that you invest in us we have found an amazing retreat (think school camp) just outside of Bendigo where we can all stay on-site together from Friday lunchtime through to late Monday afternoon. This will allow you to immerse yourself in photography techniques, business strategy and creativity without the daily stresses of life. It also means there will be plenty of time for informal discussions over meals and/or a few drinks!
4 Days of hands-on wedding photography learning
We will shoot multiple times every single day
Business classes/discussions on marketing, pricing, working with vendors and customer service
There will be a mock wedding at one of Bendigo’s best wedding venues, with real couples to shoot!

All meals supplied along with coffee, tea and water etc

Location - Axedale, Victoria (15 mins outside Bendigo)
