WATERFALL PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP


Full day session, max 3ppl

My waterfalls photography workshop departs Melbourne and takes us out to Toorongo Falls (around 1.5 hours east of Melbourne) in a rainforest environment filled with ferns, gum trees, meandering streams and of course beautiful cascading waterfalls. It’s the perfect place to learn long exposure photography and the techniques to create flawless compositions whist getting out into the fresh mountain air, decluttering your mind and letting your creativity run wild.

On my waterfalls photography workshop there are Lee filter kits supplied for your use as well as step-by-step quick-guides for your take home. Long exposure in complex environments like rainforest waterfalls can be challenging but should always be fun first, so rather than diving into technical jargon my workshops use stories and relatable analogies to break down big challenges into bite-sized pieces. My approach is to help you to understand and remember the ‘why’ behind the concepts so that you are able to problem solve independently in the future.

FAQs

Workshop
The Waterfalls photography workshop includes a whole day of personalised instruction in a small group of just 3 participants as well as plenty of post-course support via phone, email or my dedicated support group on Facebook. During your workshop you will have access to a range of ND, Graduated ND and Polarising filters used by the professionals to give you hands-on experience with the tools that help bring photography to life.

Logistics
Transport in the Matt Krumins Photography Truck is included picking up from and dropping off at Southern Cross Station or a pre-arranged location along the Monash Fwy. Pickup is at 7:30am with drop-off between 4pm and 5pm. Self drive is available however our drive time acts as the perfect opportunity for some Q&A as well as explanation of key topics for the day.

A BBQ lunch is provided however if you have any dietary requirements or allergies I recommend bringing a pack lunch (ice box available).

I always recommend bringing a waterproof jacket as waterfalls and the locations they flow are generally damp and wet locations. If we have minor drizzle or patchy showers we will be out there making the most of it as these conditions often add to the mood of our scenes. If we do have significant forecast rain you will be invited to book onto a different workshop date that suits your schedule. A judgement call will be made 5 days out from the workshop and a further assessment the day before.

Whilst this workshop does delve into more complex manual settings and filters, all of my workshops are designed to be small enough to cater to personal needs so you won’t be left behind, we may simply adapt the content to your personal needs.

Personal: The Toorongo falls are connected by around 2km of unsealed walking path and at sections these paths can be steep so a reasonable level of fitness is recommended. Sturdy walking shoes (may get a little wet), a warm rain jacket and any other waterproof clothing items are recommended as the rainforest in the area can be damp. A simple BBQ lunch will be provided however if you have any food allergies or preferences it is highly recommended that you bring an appropriate lunch.

Camera gear: As we will be experimenting with different filters and settings it’s important to have a camera that has access to manual settings as well as a threaded lens. All interchangeable cameras have threaded lenses and manual settings but if you are unsure, please contact me to ask on 0402812805. A tripod will also be required however if you do not have one I can arrange a loan tripod for the day free of charge.

In my professional life my objective is to learn from the absolute best people. I spent three hours with Matt recently preparing for an upcoming dive trip - Matt has the great talent of taking complex topics and explaining them in practical and memorable ways. The processes he has developed to simplify the shooting process are excellent. I walked away extremely happy at having been helped by a master - someone who is the master of their craft but has also mastered the art of teaching it. I'll be taking more workshops with Matt. Thanks.

I completed the Lightroom Image processing course with Matt last night and Matt's style of teaching is pitched at all levels of understanding. I can't wait to see how my new skills will transform my photos! Highly recommend attending one of Matt's workshops!

I had a one hour photo workshop with Matt. Matt explained my camera functions in a really easy way, which has now given me the confidence to go out and take great photos. I totally recommend this workshop. Thanks Matt �

This was my first time on a workshop with Matt and I was blown away, his teaching methods and analogies on the technical parts is incredibly easy to follow and remember. This was with no doubt the best workshop I have ever been on, it is not even comparable to any other workshops I have done with other photographers. Matt makes you feel so much at ease and creates fun. Even in the group environment, we still had one on one assistance and never felt rushed as I have experienced with other photographer's workshops. If you are trying to decide on which photographer to do a course with, look no further than a workshop with Matt Krumins. Truly the best!! I have given this review 5 stars, however it should be showing all of the stars in the Milky Way it is that good!!!

I did the Melbourne Zoo workshop and it was really good. Matt is really passionate and provide individual attention to all the participants. I really enjoyed this class and highly recommend it! I learned a lot about composition and a different way of taking pictures. It's a really fun way to learn and practice photography.

Enjoyed the afternoon around Melbourne with Matt. Learned a lot of different techniques and simple tricks to make an average photo a great one. Matt follows each of the participants with enthusiasm and give focused advice. It was also incredible to notice details in the streets which are usually lost in a day-to-day commute. Highly suggested experience!

I had excellent afternoon working through the options I had long ignored on my camera. All those buttons and knobs do have a purpose, who would have known ? Melbourne's inclement weather tried to cruel the day with persistent, and at times torrential rain, but it instead threw up some interesting and unique photo opportunities. Thanks Matt for a very informative session, many great tips this novice can now easily apply!

Did Matt's seascapes workshop followed by the lightroom course. Both were well structured and practical and I felt I had acquired new skills by the end. Matt was friendly and approachable and didn't laugh at any of our dumb questions! He even stopped on the way back from the workshop and bought rice to put my camera in after it got a little wet!

I attended Matt's beginners Lightroom class last night and found it extremely helpful. I came out with some new skills as well as confirmed what i had learnt before hand. I started taking photos a few months back while off with my second back operation. The small class size was great for getting a little extra help as well making it nice environment to learn. I plan on getting involved with the location photography workshops when the timing is right. Matt made the steps simple and post processing an easier task.

Loved Matt's Seascapes Workshop - he made it easy to understand, a laugh along the way - especially as it was wet and cold. Now I have to spend some � as I love what the filters can do. Thanks Matt!

Matt is lovely - he gives some tips and explanation, then lets you actually have the time to try and explore what you want to achieve when it comes to your photos. I really appreciate that he was so flexible in allowing me to alter the booking date - most companies would not be so great about it. I really loved that the tips were easy to digest and apply, and that no question was too silly. Thanks for such a great workshop!

I bought my first camera at the age of 16, now at nearly 60 years of age I am still loving photography. Unfortunately the last 30 years I have been tied up with work but I am now starting to resurrect my passion for photography. I recently purchased a Nikon D7200 which I love but unfortunately nothing has changed, the manuals leave a lot to be desired and so I've done several workshops to try and learn about my camera. This included a Nikon School workshop and a Ted's Camera Workshop among others. Quite by accident I stumbled across Matt's website. I started reading some of the tutorials which are written in an excellent lay back manner in a language that is easily understood. Looking through Matt's various workshops I decided to try the Seascapes Workshop and WOW WHAT A DAY!!!! Matt has a gift for teaching........ like his tutorials he relays information in a simple uncomplicated way. I learnt more about photography and more importantly my camera with Matt yesterday than I did with all the other stuff that I've done, and to boot I came away with a couple of shots that I was ecstatic with. There was myself and only two other people in the group which gave Matt plenty of time to spend with each of us.I was keen to do this workshop as we would be using filters and Matt supplied Lee filters for us to use and I've now decided to replace my Hoya filters with one of these systems. I look forward to doing lots more workshops with Matt particularly the Astro Workshop in Cohuna, and once again Matt thank you so much for such a fantastic day! Looking forward to the next one!

Another very enjoyable course with Matt on Lightroom 101. I had previously done Matt's underwater workshop. His easy going style, backed up with the step by step videos makes this an excellent value course to take. Oh and the red wine helps as well....

I did Matt's Seascape workshop and thoroughly enjoyed the day. Matt is very engaging and passionate about teaching photography, and as the day involved driving from Melbourne to Point Lonsdale we had plenty of time to talk about loads of photography issues. As there were only three of us, Matt was able to give everyone attention whenever they needed it. We all learnt new ways of seeing. Personally it was a first for me shooting (intentionally) in black and white and I'm now totally obsessed. The filters were a steep learning curve but a great start. And thanks very much for putting me on the Queenscliff ferry Matt - such a nice way to end a great day.

My Son sent me a voucher for the Travel workshop from his workplace in the UK and I wondered why? I had to travel from Canberra to Melbourne and stay a couple of nights to do the workshop! But since I was an "Auto" photographer I learned so much about what I could do to improve my photographs, especially low light photography, that I thought my Son had made a very good decision to buy the voucher. Now to the Aurora Borealis, it will never look so good, I hope.

I took Matt's Lightroom Class last night. The class ran for 3 hours and i learnt so much. Matt is incredibly patient, which is so important when you're just a beginner. Having said that several people in the class had done previous classes with Matt and were there to learn more or just to refresh skills learnt prior. I can't wait to start practising and sharing some of my images for feedback, which was encouraged on the night. Great to enjoy an evening with other peeps with the "Shutter Bug" Thanks Matt, I will look forward to more workshops with you.

I bought the Melbourne Zoo class as a birthday present for my partner, she said it was the best gift she ever received! Matt was so knowledgeable and patient with us all, and the small group was enthusiastic and motivated to learn and improve their photos. The location was obviously perfect, as it offered numerous subjects to hone our skills on, plus who doesn't want to see 3 teenage lions fooling around! Thanks very much Matt for the superb lesson. Cheers, Justin and Michelle
