Rocky Pool Photography Workshop + Hike

August 27th | Maximum of 5 participants | $265pp


Rocky Pool is located just 30 minutes from the Perth CBD, in Kalamunda National Park. It is a beautiful waterhole with photogenic cascades in the Perth Hills but only flows throughout the Winter and early Spring,

On the day we have two practical photography classes. The first will be an on location shoot at sunrise, where our focus will be capturing Rocky Pool before the sun shines into the valley. I will coach you through choosing the right settings with your camera in manual mode, teach you to nail your focus every time, and show the benefits/effects of a few lens filters.

Session two will consist of a 2.5hr post processing session at a venue in Kalamunda, where I will demonstrate how to get the most out of your images using Adobe Lightroom &/or Photoshop or your post processing software of choice.

A Guide to The Waterfalls of Perth

$19.95 AUD

This is a 42 page PDF guide all about the Waterfalls in and around the Perth region of WA. In the guide I share the location of 24 individual locations, many of which contain more than one waterfall. The locations within this guide are certain to keep you busy exploring the local area over Winter.

For Photographers: I have included 9 pages of information on how to get started photographing waterfalls. The information covers necessary equipment and my process of actually taking the photos. In addition to this I have included when to visit, and the best time of day to photograph each individual location.
Photographers looking for assistance and education should refer to my Patreon Page where I have video tutorials available to subscribers.

Anybody that purchases this first edition of the guide will have access to future minor updates free of charge, and discounted access to major updates and editions.

Online Training

In January 2022 I launched this online service to help other keen photographers improve their work and pursue their goals. Whether that is photography as a career, or just having a better understanding of the process and creating better images, This online service will help you out.

At the time of lanching, my Patreon page already had 11 exclusive Post Processing video tutorials, with a few images to download so that you can practise/follow along on the edits, as well as GPS locations and directions available for two of my popular images, which are be swapped out for different locations once every two months (Available to Pro Subscribers).

I’ve promised to share a MINIMUM of 9 new pieces of educational/informative content on the page each year, and by June 2022 I had already exceeded this promise. There is currently (as of July 2022) there are now 19 post processing tutorials, 3 videos of on location tips, composition tips, equipment suggestions & maintenance tips, 2 educational PDF guides, and more!

I believe this is the way forward as it will allow you to access the information whenever you want and wherever you are. Workshops are great too, but I understand that travel, timing with other commitments, and the costs are a barrier for many people so here is my solution.

I’m listening to subscriber feedback to fine-tune and make this service as beneficial as possible.
