Join photographer Andrew Goodall in Maleny for an afternoon of portrait photography this September! Our workshop features experienced models and you will learn ideas and techniques to make your portraits shine!
This is much more than just a chance to meet some models and take some photos. It’s about camera skills, light (in particular working in outdoor light) and posing. Whether you want to pursue serious portrait photography, or just photograph your kids getting ready for the high-school formal, this is the workshop to get you started.
After an opening hour of detailed tuition and demonstration with our most experienced model, the class breaks up into small groups working with one model per group. There should be one model per three photographers, and each group has a facilitator on hand to guide and advise you. As the afternoon goes on you will have the opportunity to photograph each of our models.
Maleny Historical Village has a variety of beautiful outdoor settings, with old-style Queenslander houses, vintage machinery and colourful spring gardens. It’s an outdoor workshop with plenty of space so social distancing will be easy.
This will be a small group workshop with a maximum of 9 bookings available. The plan is for one model for each group of three photographers. If the workshop is fully booked, I will have three models on site in addition to Viola who helps out for the opening session. If the workshop is not fully booked, there may be only two models (plus Viola).
See samples of Andrew’s portrait photography HERE.
This is an INTERMEDIATE workshop for people who already understand some camera basics. Whether you shoot in Manual or AV, you should at least know how to set the aperture, shutter speed and ISO on your camera, and understand essential terms like depth of field. If you need a true beginner’s course, you are much better to start with Andrew’s PHOTOGRAPHY ESSENTIALS Workshop.
Please note that the workshop fee includes access to our models who are being paid to appear on the day. All photos you take will be your own; however as a matter of courtesy, if you get a great photo of any of our models, you may be asked to share it with them after the workshop, to post on Instagram or other social media.
WHEN: Saturday September 26th, 1pm to 5pm
WHERE: Maleny Historical Village
WHAT TO BRING: Camera (obviously) and your best portrait lens. If you don’t know what lens to bring, bring all that you have…however a telephoto/zoom lens up to about 200mm, or a macro/portait lens with a wide aperture would be ideal.
*Once the bookings are in, you will be sent detailed information: address, parking, what to bring etc.
