WATERFALL PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP


$299 – 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.

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
