TRAVEL & STREET PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP


$99 – 3 hour session, max 6ppl

My Travel and Street Photography workshop is designed for beginners right through to more advanced photographers equipping you with new photography techniques whilst catering to individual needs. This course briefly covers camera settings introducing Program, Aperture and Shutter Priority modes but has a real emphasis on finding unique perspectives not seen by the average person. To me travel and street photography doesn’t just show a ‘thing’ it has a feel and tells a story, transporting your audience to a different place.

With a team of just 6 participants this workshop taking the stuffiness out of photography, keeping things relatable and inspirational by using analogies, stories and confidence building techniques. There is plenty of one-on-one attention with personalised learning for your specific camera model, experience level and photography goals and I encourage you to bring your smart phone so as you are able to record personalised tutorials specific to your camera along the way.

Following your workshop you will be invited to join the Matt Krumins Photography Course Collective Facebook group, giving you a safe and productive environment to continue your photography growth through both peer and instructor feedback.

This exclusive small-group workshop is your chance to revolutionise the way you see compositions and capture your images leaving you with inspiration to go out and photograph the world through fresh eyes!

FAQs

Your 3 hour walking travel & street photography workshop has a limit of just 6 people giving you plenty of one-on-one instruction as well as personal attention relevant to your camera brand and model.

Also, I believe that photography concepts take practice and time so at the conclusion of your workshop you will be invited to an exclusive online support group where you can continue to grow your photography alongside other workshop participants!

Awesome! In travel & street photography rain is actually an incredible thing giving us amazing reflections to use in our photographs. With plenty of undercover areas in the city we will be out shooting rain hail or shine! If you are uncomfortable being out when the streets are wet don’t hesitate to call me to make alternative arrangements. I always recommend bringing a waterproof jacket as even on a sunny day Melbourne can show it’s unique ability to change on a dime!
In photography we never stop learning, so whether you are an enthusiast photographer or or a complete beginner, my small course size will give you plenty of one-on-one attention to ensure new ideas and concepts can be tailored to your experience level!
A lot of my workshops are about how to see things rather than purely looking at the camera itself, so what you really need is a camera! That’s it! If you’re just starting out this is the perfect time to get to know the ins and outs of your new camera and get off Auto mode without getting into the technical stuff and if you’re more experienced I’ll be guiding you through how to get the most from your settings (and come cool settings deeper in the menus!). Tripods are not needed for this workshop.

“So I booked the travel and street workshop and was really impressed. Some excellent tips and tricks for composing your shots. Thanks again Matt I'll definitely be doing another one. Top Bloke”

Rikki R Street & Travel Photography Workshop, Mar 2017


“I did the wildlife photography day at the zoo and it was awesome. Can't wait to book my next lesson.”

Katie C Melbourne Zoo Photography Workshop, Mar 2017


“I have done two of Matt's workshops, "Melbourne by night" and " Travel and street". I was so impressed by the first one that I booked another one a week later. I found both workshops full of content, new ideas, and very educational. Matt has a way of delivery his workshops that are fun, as he's full of humour which puts everyone at ease, his easy going nature makes him approachable and always felt at ease asking him the silliest of questions. Matt's workshops are limited to 6 people, therefore as the group is small, Matt has many opportunities to help everyone individually, which he does very well. It really shows in the way he conducts the workshops how passionate he is about this art. I have done multiple workshops in London, but never learned as much about my camera, photography or had the results in my shots as great as I did after his workshops. I highly recommend his workshops to any level photographer wanting to either learn or sharpen up their skills. Thanks for the experience and new gained skills Matt.”

Jocelyn M Melbourne by Night/Travel & Street Photography Workshop, Mar 2017


“I had a great one-on-one session with Matt to help me with a new Nautica underwater housing and flash.

I have no hesitation in recommending him.”

Steve R One-on-one Photography Workshop, Mar 2017

“Last night I attended a one-on-one session with Matt to familiarise myself with my new mirrorless camera (it's changed a lot from my old DSLR!). He was fantastic!

Melina G Travel & Street Photography Workshop, Feb 2017


“Just home from a wonderful Street & Travel Photography Workshop with Matt.  He explains things in a clear and no nonsense way and has no problem with repeating things when people don't quite get it the first time! Matt's little stories have helped me to understand all the workings of my camera, I had a great day, took some fantastic photos and had a laugh along the way!
I would recommend Matt's courses to anyone regardless of their level of proficiency :)”

“I had a great time on this workshop, and actually got off automatic mode so that I could exercise more control over the pictures I was taking.  Having someone on hand to help meant that experimenting with settings actually led to results I was happy with, unlike my previous attempts to work with things like shutter priority mode, which just ended up being frustrating.”

Sam B Travel & Street Photography Workshop, Jan 2017


“Matt is a born teacher and very patient ! His workshops are fun and he doesn't make you feel silly if you ask a dumb question . Very interactive and so helpful . If you can afford a one on one session it's money well spent!”

It was amazing how much I could learn in this amount of time and retain the information. There was 6 in the group and each one of us were made to feel welcome and comfortable. Huge thank you!”

“Had a brilliant day at the zoo with Matt! Just loved how he kept things simple and easy to understand. Used great analogy to help us adults relate very easily!! Thank you Matt!”

Bernadine G Melbourne Zoo Photography Workshop, Jan 2017


“Matt was really easy going and friendly making sure he was aware of what level everyone was at before we started so he knew how to progress.  I loved how simply he explained everything and the small group size meant he could see everyone individually and help with settings and give some feedback of their photos.  He was really informative and didn't use complicated jargon, explaining everything well and in detail, giving advice and one of the most important things - explaining WHY we would use certain settings or do a certain thing.  His encouragement was infectious and I found the group helped each other out also.  I enjoyed my time immensely at the Zoo and can not wait to do another workshop with Matt.”

Laura E Melbourne Zoo Photography Workshop, Jan 2017


“Matt explains techniques in easy to understand language. Hands on  workshops I find are always the best to put into practice what you have read but with Matt being there he explains  and shows you how to with your own camera and trouble shoots if any problems arise. Workshops are easy going  and Matt is very keen and energetic and passes on that enthusiasm. You walk away at the end of the session with new ideas and a better understanding of your camera.”

Diana D Melbourne Zoo Photography Workshop, Jan 2017

Monique H Underwater Photography Workshop, Jan 2017


“The underwater photography course was the 2nd course I've completed with Matt. I find his courses are well structured and he takes time to understand his student weaknesses. His style of teaching makes it easy for all levels of photographers to learn.  I would certainly recommend others to do his course.”

Carol Penfold Underwater Photography Workshop, Jan 2017


“The theory side of the course was presented very simply and clearly  but the best thing was personalised help with my own camera. and its quirks.  
Simplifying our goals for practice meant the hours underwater were very 'focussed' and great learning experiences when discussed out if the water.”

Sandy Webb Underwater Photography Workshop, Jan 2017


“LOVED IT! I went into the workshop as a beginner with a new camera I hadn't even used yet. After a couple of hours I had learnt all about aperture, shutter speeds, ISO and great tips on how to take photos. Well worth the time and a great present for someone who enjoys photography!”

Sarah B Travel & Street Photography Workshop, Nov 2016


“My son bought me these workshops for my 70th birthday.  I was worried that I wouldn't be able to keep up physically and with the new knowledge that I would acquire (student anxiety). The pace was easy, Matt was patient, knowledgeable and very helpful, he was able to cater for all types of cameras and student levels of experience.  The small class number allowed for plenty of one on one tuition.

“What a great workshop! Thank you Matt. You kept it simple yet informative. And being a small group you were able to give everyone your time. Have already told a friend so we’ll be seeing you at the Zoo.”

“Great price point; great training; but most of all the courses are with someone who is passionate about his training and is not just doing it for the money – and is very hands-on and helps you apply what is being taught. Only done 1 workshop, bit very happy and have so many friends that have completed classes and are just as pleased. Above ground or below ground (underwater) photography, Matt your man to do a course with.”

Hannah Smeeton Introduction to Lightroom, August 2016

“I found Matt to be a patient, skilled teacher who has an understanding of the fundamentals of photography and is very skilled in the use of Lightroom CC.”

Laurence Beesley One-on-one Workshop, July 2016


“This course was an eye-opener. Or should I say a shutter-opener! In a single day we were given generic tips as well as very specific information and advice relating to camera settings and the control of light and speed. The particular added value lies in the additional services which Matt offers outside the course itself. He was prepared to answer questions thoroughly even before I took the course and having now done one of them, I feel I am part of a photographic ‘troupe’ and can keep on asking questions.”

Marjie Courtis Chasing Waterfalls Photography Workshop, July 2016


“Travel & Street workshop had all elements of weather! That did not deter us, Matt showed us how to take some really interesting photos. Brilliant!! thanks Matt.”

Sue McKay Mastering UW Photography, July 2016


“Matt has technical ability but it is his ability to make the technical aspect of photography simple that resonates with me. He is very personable and takes the time to explain things using practical situations.”

Claudine Collins Spectacular Seascapes, July 2016


“I have attended 2 of Matt’s courses and both were fantastic. Matt is very down to earth and welcoming to photographers of any standard, putting his students at ease the moment he meets them. He explains everything in a very easy to understand way, and has an infinite amount of patience. Matt has an amazing talent, not only in his own photography where he can make mundane scenes extraordinary, but also in passing on his tips and tricks to his students. Can’t recommend him more highly.”

Daragh Drummond Spectacular Seascapes, July 2016


“Matt’s one-on-one photography course was great value for the amount of knowledge you receiver. He has a great way of explaining theoretical points and doesn’t over-complicate things. A mix of theory and practical experience allows you to put your new learnt skills into practice. I also love the follow up support available so you aren’t left stranded after receiving lots of new knowledge.”

Hayley Parcell One-on-one Workshop, July 2016


“Matt really knows his stuff and I learn’t a great deal in his course, but it was his before and after course support that I was the most impressed with. Before the course he was so helpful advising me what I needed and helping me get the best price for it. Then after the course the links and information he has given us access to. Thanks Matt, looking forward to practising.”

Alison Taylor Mastering UW Photography, July 2016


“Matt has a love for it, No better way to spend 3 hours with him… amazing skills very helpful and professional thank you learnt a lot more what my DSLR can do.”

Carlo Marchio Travel & The Streets workshop, June 2016


“I attended the seascapes workshop, I was not confident with the settings on my camera but with Matt’s guidance and easy to follow instruction I felt I grasped the concepts and now can feel better trying manual mode. the day was busy with no wasted time, but fun and entertaining. Matt gives everyone plenty of time to give 1:1 education and problem solve. I now have a much better understanding on how the manual settings work and will be using them…no more Program mode for me! Thanks Matt.”

Cheryl Davis Spectacular Seascapes, June 2016


“Matt reminded me that photos are everywhere, even the easily overlooked puddles under our feet. It’s a matter of showing people your own unique view through your photos.”

John W Spectacular Seascapes, June 2016


“This workshop was brilliant in terms of being guided in developing skills around ND filters, composition and improving your “eye”. The small group sizes means you get just the right mix of coaching and support from Matt in his warm and supportive style. The day is broken up into several locations and event he travel time is useful for Q and A. Would definitely recommend this to other photographers.”

Tim M Spectacular Seascapes, June 2016


“I like emphasis of the course on composition and looking at the scene in a different/more unusual way.”

Amanda C Spectacular Seascapes, June 2016


“No better way to spend 3 hours on a wet afternoon in Melbourne. Being such a small group makes the learning seem like one on one tuition. Matt has a very easy way of explaining and demonstrating what he is talking about without getting all technical. Perfect for any level of experience.”

Greg Swenser Travel & Streets Photography Workshop, June 2016


“This 1-on-1 photography session with Matt was an amazing opportunity to develop my current skills, and more importantly, start taking photos a better way! I highly recommend an individual session so Matt can tailor the info to your specific needs. He is professional, knowledgable and very easy to talk to. Great session, thanks Matt!!”

“Matt’s Krumins’ Seascape (full day) workshop was an extremely enjoyable, perfectly paced, rewarding ‘hands on’ way to learn. The small group made for a personalised, almost one on one experience. Matt’s extensive and broad photography knowledge is taught in a relaxed, keep it simple manner that helps you learn new skills and feel more confident with your photography. I can’t wait to do the next workshop!”

Susan S Seascapes & Pier Photography Day Trip, May 2016


“Matts knowledge and teaching style must be commended, Being a complete amateur i learnt so much on this course, Was a long day but very relaxing, Matt took us to different locations and continued to educate us while traveling in the car. Being such a small group goes a long way on how much time he has to give each person. Looking forward to signing up for my next course. Cant thank you enough.”

-Craig Morton UW Photography Course, May 2016


“For novices this is a great way to look at your compositions differently”

Jeff Nankervis Seascapes & Pier Photography Workshop, April 2016


“Matt was a great teacher who was very skilled at simplifying the key elements of photography. Our needs were to setup a studio and camera to take product photography for our business. I started the workshop with no knowledge of or experience in photography. In fact I was unsure whether I would have the ability to do what I desired in-house. By the end of the workshop I had a grasp of the fundamentals, understood the key elements necessary to not only shoot our product but also troubleshoot. Within three hours, our studio and camera were set-up and I was confident in my ability to take and process our product photography.’

Sylvia Schiavoni  One-on-one Photography Course, April 2016


“An excellent day with a small group allows you to address questions and issues easily. Matt has a clear and concise way of explaining techniques and most importantly how to look at things better.”

Kerrie Matthee Seascapes & Pier Photography Workshop, April 2016


“I did Matt’s Seascape and Piers workshop and learnt so much from him. Small group, so I got one-on-one attention focused on my problem areas. Very practical and pitched at the right level to suit my existing level of knowledge. If you want to improve your photography, then this is for you. Great experience and very enjoyable.”

-Andrew Johnson Seascapes & Pier Photography Workshop, April 2016

“Matt’s one on one class was exactly what I needed for my work as a florist. He helped me to understand my camera in a way I could easily understand rather than foreign photography terms. He also taught me how to set up the area and object / flowers that I want to photograph and showed me how to edit the photos using Lightroom. He left me with a bunch of helpful notes and a video editing a couple of my photos so I can refer back at any time. Thank you Matt!”

Rahnee M. – Florist One-on-one Photography Course, April 2016


“I did the zoo workshop with Matt and he really made me thing of all sorts of things to achieve the best image possible – not just the exposure triangle. He very quickly understood where each of us was experience-wise and tailored his comments and tutoring to each individual. Matt used easy to understand language and no jargon. The whole experience was really enjoyable.”

Michele P Zoo Photography Workshop, April 2016


“I came to the workshop not knowing anything about any manual settings. Matt did a great job of teaching me the basics of how to start adjusting the settings to get a better shot as well as how to think about framing my shots in preperation for my upcoming safari in Africa. It was also a good excuse to spend half a day exploring the zoo.”

Lina McIvor Zoo Photography Workshop, April 2016


“Had a great morning at the zoo with Matt. I loved how he adjusted his explanations etc to suit each member of the group. With a range of ages and abilities he easily went from one to the other, ensuring we were getting the most out of the workshop. As a bonus, Matt helped with some camera settings that I was unaware of & we recorded the information on my phone so that I can refer to it later – what a great idea! Would love to take part in another of Matt’s workshops.”

Victoria McDonald Zoo Photography Workshop, April 2016

“I have been a photographer for about 6 years. I wasn’t sure what I would get out of the course. Matt’s ability to teach everyone at all levels is really impressive. I came away from the day having learned quite a bit. I will certainly be booking another course in the future.”

Shayne Mostyn Travel & Street Photography Workshop, March 2016


“Our city walk on Saturday was informative yet casual, Matt showed us so many tips and made so much sense when watching him in action, after our session i was keen to try out all the extra things i didn’t know my camera would do. He is a wiz with Olympus but knows pretty much what all other cameras do as well. His tips on lens filtering were great. Highly recommend spending some sessions with Matt.”

Craig Brockley Travel & Street Photography Workshop, March 2016


“Since completing the Photography 101 City Walk, I just can’t put my camera down! Matt explains your camera’s features and shows you how to unlock new ideas and compositions. All the areas that caused me so much frustration when using my camera are a thing of the past. If you’re new to photography or want to learn how to take great holiday snaps, do this course! It’s made me excited about photography again.”

“What an awesome day I had! Matt was extremely helpful and answered every question I had. His advise on composition was amazing and I’m now thinking more about each picture I take so I can produce a more interesting image. Matt said he would be happy if we walked away learning at least 3 things….well I certainly learnt a lot more than that!!! Thanks Matt”

-Megan McNair Seascapes & Piers Photography Workshop, March 2016


“I did the Zoo workshop with Matt. Compared to a CAE course I did several years ago, Matt’s workshop was far more helpful practical to meet my needs. His communication skills are clear, simple to understand and pitched at the level of knowledge within his group. Matt was also patient in repeating concepts not fully absorbed first time around and the small group allowed plenty of individual assistance. Thoroughly enjoyable and helpful workshop.”

“This is my second course with matt and defiantly wont be my last amazing teacher can change to help every level of photograph and amazing knowledge of different brands of cameras and strobes my photos have advanced so much but still lots to learn and am excited about doing more courses.”

Bob Staddon UW Photography Course, February 2016


“I learnt so much at the Zoo workshop. Matt’s enthusiasm for photography is evident in the way he helps his students. I love my butterfly photos and I couldn’t believe I took the photos myself. I am just an average photographer and really don’t know much about photography. At the zoo Matt was showing me how to take the best possible shot. I decided to do this course because I had just finished an underwater photography course with Matt. I was so happy with this course that I wanted to continue to improve my skills under Matt’s tuition. The only words to explain the underwater course was “brilliant in every way”. The whole day was one of learning and learn I did. I was turning knobs, moving buttons, zooming, positioning strobes, taking wide-angle shots and much more. We dived under Rye Pier for 85 minutes. Matt was busy showing me how to position myself in the current; along with how to move all the knobs on my housing etc. After the course Matt had encouraged me to take photos on land to improve my skills and so that is why I booked onto the Zoo workshop. I knew I would learn more with Matt as my teacher. To my great surprise I won a competition in DiveLog Australasia with one of the photographs I took whilst doing Matt’s course. I recommend Matt’s courses because Matt has a passion for photography…on land and in the sea.”

Cheri Bruhn Zoo Photography Workshop, One-on-one Photography Workshop, February 2016
