Night Photography Workshop


 This Photography Workshop is held on various Thursday or Friday nights from 6pm to 9pm (7pm to 10pm during daylight saving)


RUN DURING DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME :  7pm to 10pm 

& FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE YEAR :  6pm to 9pm


As the city lights come on, and the city comes alive, you will learn creative techniques to help you create postcard quality images in this fun, inspirational and eye-opening experience.

Your night begins with a harbour-side brief and introduction from a working pro photographer. As night falls, a whole new world of subjects come to life as you spend the evening exploring the bright lights of the amazing Sydney Harbour and its surrounds.

From the moving ferry lights on the harbour, to the neon lights of the central business district, to the moody and character filled streets of The Rocks, the night photography workshop will introduce you to some very simple yet very creative tips and techniques involved in shooting after dark in Sydney.

Control your camera manually as you learn how to expose for mood, capture light blur trails, zooming and light painting techniques, creative portraits at night and much more. 

Change the way you see things with a night photography workshop as you learn how to find suitable subject matter by thinking outside the square.  

For beginners looking for a fun and exciting introduction to photography or enthusiasts looking to switch to manual or looking to brush up on their technique.
