ASTRO & LIGHT PAINTING PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP – COHUNA


$499 | max 8ppl | SAT 2pm- SUN 12:00pm

Astro-photography is as much about technical settings as it is timing and beautiful locations and on this workshop we have it all. Our overnight workshop is held in Cohuna in northern Victoria where there is very little light pollution as well as affording us exclusive-access locations with tractors, old dilapidated trucks and other farm equipment to enhance our photos. The workshop is broken into three phases:
1. Location scouting & theory
2. Photographing the stars & light painting
3. Image processing workshop on Sunday morning

Whilst there is a lot of technical concepts in this workshop we have filled it with stories and relatable analogies to break down big challenges into bite-sized pieces to help you truly understand what is happening in front of your lens. With a small group of just 8 people and 2 instructors, there is plenty of one-on-one time to help cater to your personal experience level.

As a bonus to this workshop, we will be using a range of light painting equipment including Dennis Smith’s (Ball of Light) professional grade light painting kit!

Matt has an incredible way of explaining things that just makes sense. Friendly, attentive and the follow up support post course is 2nd to none. An incredibly talented guy who has a passion for sharing his knowledge with others. Highly recommended.

Matt's seascape course is an absolute necessity to anyone who wants to learn how to use filters on their camera. Just the right amount of theroy to understand what you will need which doesn't drag out so you can do what you love. Matt takes you through all the great ideas you will need for good composition and also takes you through all the settings within you camera to get that shot you are looking for. I highly recommend this course and I could imagine all his other courses will be run in this same professional but relaxed manner.. Thanks Matt for the great day out.

Had my first 1-on-1 with Matt to kickstart my learning with the new camera. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Matt had listened to the kind of photos I took and what I found interesting, in order to design a few hours that would be most beneficial. I have much to practice and remember... will definitely be a repeat customer

Thanks Matt For a fantastic morning out at your Melbourne Zoo Workshop this week Wednesday the 14/6/17, all of your help not only with my camera settings but also on how to place your subject in the frame and to use the foreground to fill the shot was great. The photos came out great. Looking forward to another workshop with you in the future and just to let you know I purchased the Zoo membership. Many thanks Wally Lyons.

Attended Matts Zoo photography workshop today, what a great learning experience. Matt managed to make some of the complex setting with camera settings seem so simple, helping to produce great photos. I will be looking out for more of Matts workshops to get the most from my photography. Thanks Matt

I attended Matt's Zoo workshop on the weekend with the course being a present from my wife. I have attended a few different courses now with different teachers, but Matt's session was the best so far. His ability to breakdown complex camera settings into layman terms was fantastic and made things easy to understand. The hints and tips he shared will not only serve me well in a safari game park but in my backyard as well! Can't wait to attend the Melbourne by Night course later this week!

Hi Matt, Love your Street and Travel Photography on May 17th. Your approach was both fun and educational. I particularly enjoyed your creative suggestions - use of reflections and looking at scenes from new angles / perspectives. Will certainly see you again soon on another workshop Cheers Lex

Just about to go to Africa for safari and I want to ramp up my basic photography technique so did a morning at Melbourne Zoo with Matt. He was fantastic helping me with my new lenses (especially the monster zoom). His knowledge of all makes of camera is amazing and he gave my mind much food for thought for creativity. A must for all levels of photography!!!!

I did the Travel and Street photography coarse today and couldn't be happier with everything I learnt. The way Matt explained everything made it seem so simple yet very effective - no amount of reading or studying has been as effective as what i walked away with after today. I highly recommend this coarse and look forward to doing my next one.

I had an excellent one on one day workshop at Melbourne zoo last week with Matt. He is definitely a people person with the photographic skills match. He gave me a bit of theory and lots of practical experience, delving into camera features that I had been too timid to address. Highly recommended as he can tailor the experience to suite your skill levels and make it enjoyable
